LOL ok now that's an interesting way to gauge interest.

Well yes I can see how stopping mid-game to reply to texts might be a sign of interest but I wouldn't bet money on that single detail. Now spending hours texting each other is a good indicator of interest but without further details it's also not much to go with. It's all up to you to figure out if he's interested: give some attention to his actions and reactions when you're with him, see if it seems like he's flirting with you.

Me either. It's just something I heard about guys and wondered if there was any truth.
Like I said, I'm still gauging interest, and also my speculations were based more on our conversations than videogaming. haha. He seems enthusiastic when talking to me in person, over text it's hard to tell since there's the lack of inflection, but he does seem to enjoy talking, and like I mentioned we talk for hours on end (like, 7 to midnight or 9 to 2 or whatever. round then.). He always gives me this big smile when he sees me, and asks me how I am and when I say good he seems genuinely happy. The interest seems to be mainly friendly, but like he's becoming interested in a little more. I'm just gonna sit and watch how it unfolds.

Quite honestly, I've never heard of such a thing. So I don't really think that single fact alone is enough to tell if he's interested in you or not. Still, the fact that you two can talk for hours is a very good sign, so I'd say that if there's any interest there on his side, it's certainly a promising start, at least.

I'm in this situation almost every day at some point. Like everyone else says, I wouldn't bet on this one occurrence, but if a guy can pull himself away from CoD to talk (on a continuous occasion), then he's got at least some sort of interest - either as a good friend or maybe even something more.

Hahaha, listen to me, speculating from a weak hypothesis and a stereotype that may or may not be true. As a note, my fellow male friends don't get text replies until I'm completely done playing online, but I will take breaks to respond to my female friends. Why? One, it's impolite to leave a lady waiting, and two, I can be certain that they often won't fill my inbox with pointless banter like every single one of my fellow mates do. XD And of course, every one of my mates tells me that I'm the odd guy out of the group for many of my ideals.

From what I've personally seen, my buds aren't even serious gamers and they find it hard to pull themselves away from a game to talk to anyone at all, so there's a good possibility that there's at least something there.

:thumbsup: Very true, whatever path you take, hopefully everything works out for the best for you.

Also, I wouldn't take any sort of relationship advice from me too seriously; I don't have the proper experience I've just seen that situation several times with my other friends. XD

I thnking talking for hours in weekends especially at night are huge indicators. How many guy friends would spend talking for hours and hours? Not to many I believe unless your a special friend. Talking for hours shows that you guys can keep up decent conversations if you guys decide to date. Who knows maybe you guys could be considered a couple without even knowing it. It's almost feb the 14th so I'm kind of curious if he is going to get you gifts or not.

If he is an huge gaming fan or he loves CoD a lot or spends so much time in the game to not be a NOOB and he decide to answer text it is also another sign that he holds you in a positive light to even respond.

I think he just sees you as a really good friend he loves talking to, people tend to hold friends in high esteem, especially when they're having a lot of fun and see each other often. If he has thoughts about starting a relationship, I bet he wouldn't want to risk a friendship over it, so it will probably be just that, unless you suggest otherwise.
As for the CoD texting, he's either really pro and can wipe out a squad while texting, or just texting on his dead time :P

Being a gamer, if he's texting you while playing? HE REALLY FRIGGIN LIKES YOU.

No, seriously. I'd drop my game immediately and talk with my gf if I had the chance, probably just me though XD

Hahaha, let's not jump to immediate conclusions It's quite true that most gaming guys would be too hardcore to pull away though. XD

Oh, and dropping your game to text your girlfriend? Good work, that should be a given; if you can't do that then you shouldn't even be dating.

He is probably texting in his dead time. I wouldn't even text in the middle of the game unless it is something very important. lol Actually, if I had a girlfriend I can actually talk and play videos in the same time. I can't text and play though unless I'm beat or in break time.

Illusore I think you might get a bigger hint in Valentine's day or maybe the day before.

He prolly sees you as a really good friend who'se just fun to talk to more than a love interest. If he's the nice type of guy you seem to imply that he is, I would think that if he had a love interest in you, he would leave CoD to talk to you. At least, that's what I would do if I was talking to someone I had a romantic interest in. I could be wrong, but your best bet is to wait for tmo or Monday when Valentine's day comes, like Knight said.

What Dextro said, but also this:

Could just be him being nice, liking you as a friend blabla (no need to explain more, you guys did already ). But things like that are actually warning signs I learned to not ignore, since I'm very oblivious to feelings towards me sometimes.
Just in my own experience and that of friends:

With a guy talks with you for hours,
calls and texts while he does something he likes and isn't just bored
or while he's at work and shouldn't text around
- chances are he might like you for your femaleness and not just for being fun to talk to.

But another important factor is: what do you think of him? And what signals do you send him?

And yeah valentine's is a good oppurtunity to gauge the situation

Reasonable. Valentine's is only a holiday if you're with someone. Otherwise it's just a day for all the couples of the world to buy overpriced chocolate and rub their happiness in the face of us single people.

Yeah that's what I thought at first that it was just firendly, but based on the way he's been talking to me in person lately I've started to wonder a little more.
What do I think of him? As a good friend, and maybe a little more. I'm not too sure. And I don't know what signals I send D: I'm not good at gauging that.

yeah, we could definitely keep a good conversation. I doubt we'd be considered a couple without knowing it though, cause we don't have any except one class together so there isn't much opportunity for us to be around each other in person, and we haven't gotten together outside of school, but who knows. Valentine's. hmmm. I really can't tell.

he is a huge gaming fan, video games are like...his life.

I would agree. and I know nothing about CoD so I'll take your word for it

Its the day someone somewhere misses out on getting a selfmade dessert and dinner by me!
I only care about that day if I have special someone, other than that - there are many chocolates in heart shapes on sale once it passes!

Ah well at least I don't get any corny poetry this year. Huzzah, single life!

Spoiler for reaction:
Well! Are you only writing him back, or are you actively sending him things, too? How long are the texts you send? Do you talk about stuff you don't talk about with everyone? How do you act in front of him? Do you treat him any different than others? Are you always smiling when talking to him? Touching him (like the shoulder or arm) during conversations?

He might be just as unsure what you want from him as you are
My advice is just to wait and see how thing's develop. But be careful to not lead him on unnecessarily. But considering you don't exclude the possibilty of liking him, that doesn't seem likely.
There is no need to hurry, specially if neither of you has clearly shown interest. Just enjoy yourselves like you've been doing the whole time.
