Naruto hasn't been failing to interact with Hinata because he doesn't care about her. He's been failing to interact with her because Kishimoto is a lousy relationship writer. That doesn't mean he won't throw them together at the ending, whether you think it was developed properly or not. He's been setting up NaruHina for AGES- it's just that he's been doing it BADLY.

Also lets not forget that since the first time she confessed her love for him, ala Pein invasion, Konoha has been IN A FRICKEN STATE OF EMERGENCY DUE TO WAR! He's been to the Land of Iron (wherever that place where the Summit was) then to the Land of Lightning (to hide + train with Bee). When between all those fast paced events does he have time to holla at Hinata? The man isnt thinking about love now, he has a fricken WAR to train for.
