    i think the the smiley face and wink is bringing humour to it so as to not upset you.  Keyboards and texts are all well and good but there is no eye contact, humour or body language involved so this is put as emoji as I do the same thing to mean they are putting a point over but not in a nasty way.  After all if you could hear it being said or see it being said you would get the expression that is involved in it.  I lived before all this texting and keyboard when we had the good old landline only when I dated and if I’m honest I would be the same as you trying to work things out what the texts mean and I’m glad I didn’t have all this technology it must be awful fathoming all this out.  Depression makes us analyse more and if we are having a down period we may think we aren’t worthy of knowing when really it’s our mind doing it all.  Only you will know when is the right time for the letter. x

    He seems to like you, He seems like He feels you text him to much. Cut your texts down a little and you seem to have an admirer

    Hi Otaku - ah, the pitfalls of love...His text message was a kindly, good humoured way of saying 'a little space please.' I would hold onto the letter until you are sure about whether he will be receptive to it. Perhaps at that stage you can say it in person, which will be heart-racing but real and endearing. Be careful not to scare him away by coming on too strong. And you must prepare yourself for rejection. We are always here to talk.

    Hi otaku! I agree with wayne1962 that he may need a little bit of space. Some guys really don't like to spend a lot of time typing lengthy messages. They also prefer talking in person than in mobile so don't be offended if he doesn't reply asap. Try not to bombard him with messages because that can be annoying sometimes. If you have the courage to ask him about his feelings for you, then do so. But if you feel that you need more time for him to develop his feelings or quite unsure about how he really feels, you might want to give it some time and observe. Does the letter you would send him is lengthy as well? You might want to hold that off for now.
