8 Signs He’s One Of Those Guys Who’ll Get Bored Once He Has You

8 Signs He’s One Of Those Guys Who’ll Get Bored Once He Has You

The sad truth is that some men don’t want a catch — they only want the chase. You don’t deserve to be just another pawn in someone else’s game, so if you think you’re falling head over heels real fast and notice any of these 8 red flags, get out while you still can.

  1. The more you play hard to get, the more interested he seems. The second you blow him off, he’s banging on your door — but when you show him a little interest he’s nowhere to be found. You don’t have time to be the mouse in his cat game.If he blows you off the minute you pay him any attention, don’t bother sticking around for the next time he feels like chasing you.
  2. He plays you hot and cold. One minute he’s all over you and the next you’re out of sight, out of mind. Your whole relationship is on his time. He decides when he wants you around and when you can feel free to leave. He’s in charge and you’re the puppet. Ugh, no. Get out of this circle of hot and heavy to freezing cold before it’s too late.
  3. He has no interest in settling down. The guy who loves the chase certainly doesn’t love commitment — shocker! — so if every time you try to have “the talk” he shoots you down, he might only be interested in the chase, not the catch.
  4. He doesn’t want anyone else to have you, but he doesn’t want you either. He loves the fact that you have a lot of options because he feels like the top dog when your attention is on him. What he really loves is the competition. The second another guy looks your way, he’s fighting for you. That might sound exciting, but just remember when the only interest you care about is his, that’s when he no longer cares about you.
  5. He wants to have his cake and eat it too. He wants you all to himself, but he also wants his freedom. Since he’s technically single, hooking up with another girl wouldn’t be cheating. He chases you until he gets you into bed and then he feels like he finally won.
  6. It’s too damn easy to bruise his ego. His confidence depends on how many women he can catch and release. The single life is like a drug to these men, and the chase is their very own high. The fact is that you’re in control of his confidence. When he gets you into bed, he feels good about himself, but the only way to feel even better is to leave you behind and move on to his next victim.
  7. He’s not sure about what he wants. If he doesn’t know what he wants, it’s pretty obvious he doesn’t really want you. What he likes is the chase, but when it comes to serious relationships, he can’t admit that he’s just not interested.
  8. You think he’s playing mind games. Listen to your intuition. You’re already wondering if he finds more thrills in chasing you than being with you. So why are you still with him? If you think he’s playing mind games, he probably is. Beat him at his own screwed up game by no longer allowing yourself to be a player. He’ll move onto someone else, and you’ll be better off without him.
