Don't you just have mixed signals?
What do you think he was thinking or wasn't thinking when he said this or that?
It's kind of frustrating.
But it seems like today's dating scene can't survive without mixed signals .
Getting inside a man's head and understanding where they come from is not easy.
But we did our homework.
We asked 30 men to be brutally honest when it came to mixed signals.
Here's what we found:< /p>
1. A random message out of the blue after he's been gone for a long time.
He's just checking if you're still there, if you're still interested enough to answer.
He doesn't usually want anything specific, he just wants your attention.
If his message is short and effortless, don't even try to text him back.
He just wants to boost his ego by believing he can have you anytime his message is up appears on your screen.
2. Texting all the time but never asking you out.
This is a man who texts without intention.
He just enjoys being in touch with you, he likes the conversation and enjoys the attention he gets and nothing more than that.
If you guys have been texting for a while or stayed in touch in some way and he didn’t have the decency to ask you out on a real date, you are just flirting that will never become a real relationship.
3 . He initiates the conversation and then disappears for a long time.
He definitely plays games. Let's be honest – a man who sends you a message that you replied to almost immediately still has his phone in his hand and sees you texted back.
He's just delaying the reply, um letting you know you're playing by his rules.
He wants to build the excitement and anticipation and get you hooked. Don't play his game.
4. He retires after a few good dates.
The first and most likely reason for this is that if he has had time to text and meet you before and is now the ‘busy’ he is not only dating you. Excuse used.
He's probably dating other women besides you. Don't commit yourself and keep your options open.
Secondly, he may not be ready for a relationship because he recently went through a breakup and he just realized it.
If that's the case, thank him for not making you his rebound girlfriend and wave him goodbye.
5. When he says he just wants to be friends but is still flirting with you.
He wants you in his life, he probably even likes you, but he doesn't want you date or start a relationship with you.
Therefore, it is safest for him to stay in your life as your boyfriend.
He's made it clear that he doesn't want anything serious to do with you, so he's not afraid to flirt freely with you.
But don't be confused, it's just for the sake of flirting. Some men are just like that.
6. It's all about late night calls.
If a man only calls or texts late at night, his intentions are clear – he just wants to undress with you.
He's probably drunk and alone, or both, and needs some attention and is trying to see if that's possible with you.
If he never asks you out, he never asks you out during the day meets and you only see each other when he finds it convenient, you must face the fact that you are just his bedtime, a friend with benefits and nothing more.
7. He saw you with another guy and now he's trying.
He saw you with a random guy who might just be your friend, but that made him jealous.
Suddenly he's texting and calling, commenting and liking photos your social networks.
He's probably acting this way because he sees the other guy as competition and once he sees that he can have you back he'll be cold again.
What's happening here is that he doesn't want to be with you, but he doesn't want the other one to be either. Don't fall for it.
8. He says he is not ready for a relationship NOW.
He may not be ready, or he may be smart and play games.
< p>He knows how the female brain works and when he says ”now” adds, that will be the only thing you will hear.
He gives you false hope that something more significant could happen one day, especially when his story includes phrases like ”Let’s have fun’ have”, ”We don’t need labels” or ”Let's take it easy now and see what happens” to be added.
You don’t have to wait or see anything, he’s just telling you that he’s not relationship material and never will be as far as you are concerned.
Don't waste your time with him if you want something real.
The bottom line is that a guy who likes you won't send you mixed signals, except maybe on Beginning while he's still trying to figure out what he's into with you so as not to rush it.
But if this behavior continues, don't even try to close his mixed signals read and end it.
You need someone who is into you and not afraid to show it.
You need someone with whom you can communicate openly and honestly, and not someone who wants you to read their mind.
