I need help! Adobe Illustrator

so, they way i usually want curved text is by typing onto a path, but when i type on to a circular path it does nothing but type inside and not on the path!
Extremely frustrating!! please help

You need to use the Type on a Path tool to follow the contours of the circle, otherwise it just places the text inside and constrains it there.
