It’s not easy being rejected by someone you like, or even someone you think you might like. However, it’s always best to know that someone has no interest in you whatsoever ASAP. With us guys, it’s usually easy to tell—you just have to know the signs. To help you ladies avoid undue heartache and rejection, here are a few to look out for.
He makes no effort to spend time together.
This can be a little tricky because some guys are shy and others try to play you hot and cold. However, guy who doesn’t like you will just be cold. If he’s playing games, he’ll have to find a way to be around you so he can then give you the cold shoulder. I know, pretty stupid, right? But if a guy is going out of his way to avoid being around you at all, he genuinely doesn’t like you and you shouldn’t waste your time.
He has no reaction when you mention other guys.
First of all, you don’t have to make an effort to mention other guys to make him jealous; that’s a silly game. That being said, a guy who likes you will always get a little jealous when you talk about another dude. Sometimes, that’s how we realize we actually like someone. If you pay close attention, you should notice a guy changing his tone or facial expression when you so much as say another guy’s name. That’s jealousy. If he has no reaction, he’s either great at hiding his jealousy or doesn’t care about you at all.
He doesn’t ask questions.
To state the obvious, asking questions is one way to show that you’re interested in someone else’s life. A guy who likes you will surely ask you questions about yourself. Even if he’s shy or nervous, he’ll stumble upon a question sooner or later. You should be able to tell that he’s making no effort to ask a question, and that’s a dead giveaway that he has no interest in you whatsoever.
He doesn’t smile.
You shouldn’t be overanalyzing how a guy smiles, but if he’s not doing it at all, he probably doesn’t care about you. This isn’t a game, it’s just a guy who’s disinterested. I mean, if you like someone, you’re probably going to smile around them, right? If his face looks pretty unamused at all times, it’s probably because that’s how he feels.
He avoids being one on one with you.
To be fair, if he’s, he might be too nervous to be alone with you, at least at first. However, a guy who’s not interested in you will do the same. He’ll insist on hanging out in a group or come up with bad excuses to get away if you two are left on your own. If he’s nervous to be alone with you, that may actually be a good sign. One who avoids you altogether just isn’t feeling it.
He’s not nervous.
Almost all guys will be a little nervous when they’re around someone they like and want to get to know better. I’m sure this goes both ways. Even if he has trained himself to be calm, cool, and collected, you may be able to sense some nervousness. If you can’t, it’s probably because he’s not into you.
As you may know, some guys aren’t super talkative. Then again, some of us tend to ramble when we like someone. This can come across both in person and in texts. On the flip side, a guy who doesn’t like you will always say the bare minimum. He won’t care about talking to you, so it’ll be “yes,” “no,” and “OK,” and little else.
He talks about other girls.
Please don’t try to rationalize why a guy is mentioning other girls around you. Either he’s a jerk who’s playing games or he’s a jerk who doesn’t like you. It doesn’t matter if it’s someone else in the room, someone he met recently, or he speaks glowingly about his ex. If he talks about other girls around you, he’s actively letting you know he doesn’t want you. You can send out all of the vibes you want, he doesn’t care.
His phone is out.
Come on, you don’t need me to tell you that a guy who actually likes you won’t be using his phone while you two are talking. There’s always some leeway based on the situation, but if he’s staring at his screen and deep in text convo with someone mid-conversation, you’re definitely not on his radar. If it matters, you don’t want to date that guy anyway.
He remembers nothing.
To be fair, some of us guys have bad memories. But if a guy can’t remember simple details about you, he’s mentally checked out while you’re talking and probably doesn’t care about getting to know you. If you try to remind him of something and he says “I don’t remember,” it’s a safe bet that he has zero interest in you in any capacity.
