It’s a tale as old as time: girl meets guy, they like each other, and then she wonders forever what he’s thinking. You hope that things will get simpler once you get into a relationship, but what if you’re not in that place yet and you don’t even know if he likes you in that way? If the guy that you’re into is all hot and cold, it’s not a fun experience. Here’s what’s really going on when you’re confused AF.
1. HE’S NOT SURE ABOUT YOU.
If a guy likes you, guess what—he’s going to act like he likes you. He’s not going to talk to you a ton one day and ignore your text messages the next. When he promises that you’re going to grab drinks this weekend and then you never hear from him, that proves that he hasn’t made up his mind about how he feels about you. You don’t need to put up with that.
2. HE’S DATING AROUND.
A guy who’s boyfriend material is going to have eyes for only you. He won’t feel the need to play the field. He’s not acting in an honest way because he might be juggling a bunch of different girls. He might have had every intention of doing what he said that he was going to, like texting you to get together again, but then he went out with someone else. It sucks but it happens, so you might as well think that you’re not the only one.
