When you like a guy, and you’re dying to take it to the next level with him, it can be hard to feel optimistic when he is sending you tell-tale signs that he isn’t that into you. After all, when a guy is interested in you, you will know it. But if he isn’t? You can rest assured he will be doing any of these 14 signs he’s just not that into you.
He Never Texts/Calls First
If you’re always the one having to send the first text message or making the phone calls (which he probably only answers half the time- if that), then he isn’t interested in you. Trust me- when a guy likes you, he will be dying to talk to you as much as he can, and won’t be afraid to make the first move because he wants to know more about you and find out how you’re doing.
His Replies are Short
We all know those texts: You send: ‘Hey, what’s up?’ and they respond: ‘Nm.’ It is probably one of the most annoying things ever, isn’t it? I mean, here you are trying to start a conversation, and they don’t even have the decency even to try and continue the convo. If you’re getting super short replies every single time you guys talk, then he isn’t engaging with you, and he’s not into you. Granted, some guys don’t like to text, but even those who despise texting will give it their best effort for the girl they like.
He Doesn’t Ask About You.
When you like someone, you want to get to know them, right? Well, if a man isn’t bothering to ask anything about you- whether it’s your favorite movie, how your day was, or how you’re enjoying your new job- then he certainly isn’t interested in you, in fact, he doesn’t even care whatsoever.
He Doesn’t Open Up
So you don’t know anything about him, and he isn’t willing to share much detail about him or his life; what can you make of that? While there is a small bunch of people who have trouble sharing anything and like to keep almost everything a secret, the majority of individuals are willing to share with the one they want. So if you find yourself utterly oblivious to who he is and what his life is all about, he isn’t sharing for a reason- he isn’t interested enough to share it with you.
You Hardly Talk
As mentioned before, it is only natural to want to talk to the person you like 24/7. You want to bond with them, learn about them, and simply enjoy their company, whether it’s true a text message or a phone call. But he barely talks to you? Does he never call? It could take hours before he replies to the smallest text? Um, yeah. Sorry, girls, but that simply shows a lack of interest on a huge level.
He Never Has Time to Hang Out
Everyone is busy in their lives, but everyone will make time in their busy schedules to see the one they like. If he is always busy and takes days or even weeks to set up a date or even merely a hang out time with you, then he’s simply not interested in you and doesn’t even want to be around you.
He Flirts with Everyone
Ever notice that the man you have your eye on is continuously flirting with everyone? And he even flirts with other women in front of you? Ladies, if a man is genuinely interested in you, he is NOT going to spend any of his time or attention on another woman, especially in front of you where you can see it! Any man that’s flirting around openly, not caring what you think or how it makes you feel, is not interested.
He Doesn’t Get Jealous.
Everyone gets jealous when they see the person they like flirting or checking out someone else; it’s only natural. But if you notice that the guy you like could care less if you made out with another man in front of him, well, I hate to tell you, but he simply doesn’t care. He isn’t interested in you, and therefore it doesn’t bother him if you get intimate or just simply flirt with other men in front of him.
He Doesn’t Introduce You to Friends or Family Members.
The only reason why a man won’t introduce you to his friends or family members is simply this: he is not serious about you. At all. He doesn’t want to invest in a deep relationship with you. I mean, don’t expect him to do this right away; but if you’ve been waiting for months and nothing has happened, then you need to let him go and find someone who wants to get serious and have you around the people he loves the most.
He Talks About Other Women
If this isn’t a sure-fire sign he is not interested in you, then I don’t know what it is. Think about it: why on earth would a man that likes you bring up other women he wants? That’s just ridiculous, and it is something that just plain doesn’t happen. If you hear him talk about other girls in front of you and hear him even say he likes one of them, he is DEFINITELY not interested in you, and you need to ditch that crush right away.
He’s Constantly Texting/Messaging Other Women
There is nothing more annoying than someone on their phone when you’re around them, especially when they take forever to respond to you. If he’s busy messaging other girls the entire time you guys hang out, it’s a sure sign he’s not interested.
He Only Wants Sex
Forget about any emotional attachment; the second you guys are together, he is trying to make a move, and if you don’t respond the way he wants, he most likely ends the date early. Yeah, this guy isn’t interested in who you are, only what you have underneath your clothing.
But He Doesn’t Touch You in Public.
This kind of man doesn’t want anyone to know he’s ‘with’ you, because he wants to make sure all the girls around know he is single and ready to mingle. If he is distant from you in public and avoids any kind of PDA, then he’s looking for someone else.
You Just Know
Sometimes your intuition can just tell you he isn’t interested in you. Perhaps it is the way he talks to you, how his body language is or some other hint that gives it away. If you feel like he isn’t interested in you, talk to him about it or simply move on to find someone who truly engages in you and wants to go for something serious and long-lasting, you deserve it!
