If you could give me some help and advice I would greatly appreciate it! First, I just want to say that I have come a really long way with friends, maturity, and spiritually. I’m a little frustrated why I’m still having problems. It seems like everyone else is just fine and can get people to instantly like them and their friends to want to stay in touch with them. Also, could you give me some conversations rules for Facebook and texting please? I think I made friends, but then they stop responding 🙁 Sometimes I don’t respond when it’s clear we’re done with the conversation, but then I feel like them not talking to me for months is because I didn’t respond. For example, I went to an amazing YoungLife camp this summer and became friends with the leaders from another school, who are married. One of them just came up to me and started talking and asking questions when we stopped for ice cream. It felt so cool and special he was asking me so many questions! Then one day when I was at the camp, the wife came up to me and said “What are you doing now? I want to hang out with you.” Then she asked me questions about who my friends were at the camp. I told her about my neighbor and also how I became friends with one of their kids. Her face lit up when I said that! I think that made her day! She was so happy! Anyway, so I was talking to the wife on facebook and I asked if she would have time to meet for coffee. She said yes, then asked what days would work best for me. I told her then asker her what days. She read it, but didn’t respond. Also, the same with her husband Will. He requested me after the trip, and we’d been ocasionally talking. I told him it would be nice to see him, Ally, and my new friend again. He agreed, so I asked what day would work best for everyone. Was that a reasonable question or should I have not asked that? He posted something but didn’t respond, so I just want to make sure I’m not being weird or embarrassing myself. Thank you!

Also, on the way to camp, one guy was so sweet and friendly! Whenever he would laugh with his friend, he included me. He would give me funny looks like “What is he doing?” and also putting his feet by mine or brushing his over mine. At camp, he would also hold long eye contact with me, and sometimes his eyes even sparkled or glowed. Me and my friend Ally were watching them play a game and he took his shirt off and then stared at me. One time, I was walking by myself and I could see his friend getting his attention and pointing at me. He lifted his shirt up and tied his bathing suit bottom. His face got red too sometimes. We would also like lock eyes, but with our whole faces and he always looked at me while he was talking to another girl. Lastly, he sometimes brushed his whole body against me if I was walking past him or always want to walk near me with his friends. Like walking on the back of my shoe. What was he doing? Was he flirting or am I misintrepreting things? I’ve heard I misintrepret flirting as being friendly sometimes, so I was just curious.
Also, when I was at my good friend’s house, her younger brother kept walking by my chair a lot, when I could tell he didn’t really need to. If I’m misinterpreting these situations, can you tell me how to read them right please? I think it would be cool if a guy liked me, but I don’t know if that would happen. I’m not worried about it, just curious if I’m misinterpreting things and also what’s going on with Facebook. Is it better to just keep quiet and not talk to anyone?

Also, did they really like me or did they just pretend to? and why did they like me? I’m quiet, shy, and have a hearing loss. I didn’t even talk to my new friend till the last day 🙁

You didn’t do anything wrong in the facebook conversations. There are a lot of reasons why they may have seen the message & not responded. They may be really busy, messaging a lot of people, or unsure of when they could meet you so they’re checking on it. I’d wait a few days & message them again since if they haven’t responded by then, they may have forgotten.

I don’t really have advice on the second part of your post. I’d have to see how they were acting all the time to give a good opinion. But there could be many reasons why your friend’s brother was walking by you a lot. For one, he may just be nosy. It’s hard to tell what people are thinking sometimes, lol.
