When you're deeply invested in what you want to happen, it can be difficult to see a situation for what it truly is. However, there are certain signs that indicate he may not be as interested in you as you are in him.
1. He Basically Straight-Up Tells You
There are guys who won't beat around the bush and will be clear about their intentions. They may say things like they only want to be friends or that they're not looking for anything serious at the moment. Don't deceive yourself into thinking that they don't really mean it or that they will change their mind. It's important to take their words at face value.
2. You Get Ignored More Than He Responds To You
When he consistently leaves your messages unread or takes an eternity to reply, it's a clear indication that he's not interested. Even though he may claim to be busy, if he can find time to do other things like binge-watch TV shows, he can surely spare a few seconds to send a quick text.
3. He Repeatedly Puts You In The Friend Zone
When a guy calls you by terms like "dude" or "bro," it's a sign that he's not interested in making you his girlfriend anytime soon. Similarly, if he never compliments you, it's a red flag. Even if he's shy, if he's attracted to you, he'll want to show it. Additionally, if he doesn't bother to groom himself or dress nicely around you, it's a clear sign that he's not trying to impress you. He's essentially treating you like one of his buddies, so it's best to take the hint and move on.
4. You're His Little Secret
If he keeps you a secret and doesn't introduce you to his friends or family, and avoids taking photos together or sharing them on social media, it's a strong indication that he's not interested in committing to you. While he doesn't have to proclaim your relationship to the world, if he keeps you completely hidden from everyone in his life, it's a red flag.
5. He Only Gets In Touch At Night
When the only time he texts you is late at night, it could be a sign that he only wants a physical relationship with you. Moreover, if he's constantly texting and distracted by his phone during your time together, it could mean that there are other people or things that he prioritizes over you.
6. You're Always The One Making Plans
If you're the only one suggesting plans, and he only wants to hang out indoors while making no eye contact, it's a clear sign that he may not be interested. Moreover, if he avoids being alone with you, it could indicate that he's not looking for a more serious relationship.
7. He's Way Too Flaky
If he's always in a rush to leave when you're together, reschedules plans last minute, and constantly says he's too busy to hang out or talk, it's a clear sign that he's not interested. Don't ignore the red flags.
8. He's A Terrible Conversationalist
If he never initiates conversation and when you do talk it's dry and one-worded, that's a bad sign. He also shows no interest in your interests and talks about or flirts with other girls in front of you. These are all clear indicators that he's not into you.
9. He's Just Not Making An Effort
If he's not matching the level of effort you put into communication and spending time together, then it's a clear indication that you're not a priority for him. It's not a good match and you deserve someone who's enthusiastic about having you in their life. It's time to move on from this guy.
You deserve a partner who is head over heels for you and appreciates all the wonderful things you bring to the table. If someone is indicating that they're not fully committed, it's best to move on and be available for someone who will be.
