Text a sex buddy
There could be a number of reasons for his lack of response. Maybe a girl has come into the picture and slipped under your radar.
It is also possible he is talking to a girl but hasn’t gotten into a public or official relationship yet. Another reason could be that he misread your signals.
A friends with benefits was in your life before you started hooking up, and will probably stay in your life when you stop.
However, I do delight in toying with their minds as they have toyed with mine. Be more successful in the same industry he works in.
I hate the species of fuckboy more than my constant angry ranting about them to everyone I know can say. Even if you like said musician/filmmaker/writer, put that aside momentarily. He won’t be able to resist debating back and forth for hours upon hours in text form.
This might explain why he has said one thing, but acted out another—he is uncertain about how to take your advances and therefore unsure how to act.
One additional option to consider is that he is not getting what he needs from this set up.
