hes really sweet and funny. so were facebook friends, but barely ever online at the same time(it pisses me off, once i logged on 55 seconds after he posted something and went offline). so yesterday i got the guts to IM him and we started talking. he replied really fast too, so idk if thats good or what. but we got joking around and stuff, then he sent me qa winky face.

does a winky face mean anything? hes really friendly with everyone too so idk. but ya...my friend thinks it means were flirting.

thanks!

oh, and a seperate question...what do you say when thee the awkward silences after an "lol" or something besides 'sooo...'? thanks.

btw, im a freshman and hes a sophomor in high school.
