Not all men are liars, but some of them are pretty talented when it comes to tricking women. They’ll use their charm convince you that they’re crazy about you so that they can sleep with you or just boost their own confidence. That’s why you need to keep both eyes open when a guy seems too good to be true. Here are a few signs that he doesn’t like you as much as he says he does:

  1. He won’t acknowledge you on social media. If he refuses to post an Instagram picture of you, or tag you on Facebook, then he probably doesn’t want anyone knowing you’re involved. That means he might be involved with a few other girls at the same time.
  2. His friends have no idea who you are. If he really liked you, then his friends would know the names of all of your cats. If they don’t even know your name, then he probably isn’t as crazy about you as you’d like him to be.
  3. He only hangs out to make out. Or he only texts you to ask for nudes. If every conversation revolves around sex, then he’s not interested in anything more than getting laid.
  4. He never sees you in person. You can’t have a relationship over text. If he won’t set aside enough time to meet up with you in person, then he doesn’t like you as much as he says he does.
  5. You don’t spend holidays together. If he really liked you, he’d invite you over for the holidays. If you two aren’t all that serious, he’d at least invite you over to meet his parents on any other day of the year.
  6. He won’t delete his Tinder. If he was planning on committing himself to you, then he wouldn’t need his photo on a dating site—especially a site that is known for hooking up. If he’s still on Tinder, then he isn’t taking your relationship seriously.
  7. He never starts the conversation. If he only talks to you or hangs out with you after you initiate the interaction, he’s not as interested in you as you are in him. He should be thinking of you, even when you’re not around.
  8. He won’t watch the movie you picked. If he liked you, he wouldn’t mind sitting through Mean Girls for the third time that month. He’d do whatever he could to get on your good side, and that includes watching chick flicks.
  9. He talks to other women the same way he talks to you. If he flirts with you constantly, but then uses the same lines on your friends, he’s just recycling his moves. He’s trying to see which one of you will agree to sleep with him first, and then he’ll move on to the next one.
  10. He’s a hypocrite. If he gets mad when you won’t text him back, even though he never actually texts you back, then it’s a power move. He wants you to answer his beck and call while he gets to neglect you.
