Having a crush on someone is exciting. It’s fun to gush over someone new, wondering if you’ll ever get the chance to date them. Well… it’s fun until you realize you probably won’t get the chance to date them. Then, it’s just heartbreaking! Do you have a crush, and you’re worried they might not be as into you as you are into them? You may, unfortunately, be looking for signs he doesn’t like you back. It may be disheartening to find out that they don’t like you the way you like them, but it’s better to find out sooner rather than later. And it’s especially better to find out before you invest more time into them.
Check out these small signs your crush is not interested in you.
1. He doesn’t know your name
It is normal to not know your name if you have never met. But if you do have some common friends and you have been introduced to him a few times and he still can’t remember your name then that’s not a good sign. If he was interested he would never forget something so important as your name. And that’s one of the most obvious signs your crush is not interested in you.
2. He takes forever to respond to you
Talking to a guy you like in person may be a little overwhelming. So to soften the blow, you engage him in conversation online or via text. That way, you’ll have something to talk about when you decide to finally have that real-live conversation. But what good is setting up a virtual foundation if you almost always feel like you’re talking to a brick wall? Not only does he take hours to respond, but his responses may also be vague. It’s like waiting for hours and even days just to get a simple response.
3. You initiate always
If you’re always the one texting your crush or starting a convo, they might not be super into you. Sure, they could just be shy, but if they do like you, they will at least try to reach out and make contact. If there is barely anything coming from their end, it’s time to end the crush. Sorry!
4. He leans away from you
If, when you two are talking, he leans away from you, it is very possible that he does not regard you as a potential love interest. Body language can go a long way in understanding these things. If you try to get closer to him and he leans away he is most likely not interested. If he avoids physical contact with you at all then it is sure he doesn’t like you.
5. He doesn’t listen when you talk
Someone who likes you as much as you like him will hang on your every word. Hey’ll be interested in what you have to say because he is interested in you. Conversely, someone who doesn’t like you back will barely listen to what you are saying. If you feel like you’re trying to chase him down just to have a normal conversation with him, and then when you get there, he isn’t paying attention, he is not the one for you.
6. He talks about other women
Possibly one of the most surefire ways to find out if a guy doesn’t like you back is when he talks about other women that he could potentially be going out with. There’s no fault in thinking that this might just be one of his tactics to get you to step up, lest another woman takes him away. But once he starts saying that he just went out with this girl or that he’s buying flowers for her, then it’s a done deal: he’s not into you.
7. He treats you like he treats his friends
Some women like to be treated like a bro. That means being invited to typical guy-centered events like sporting matches, nights out at the pub or gaming night. A lot of women genuinely enjoy being included into their crush’s inner circle of guys. The problem here though, is that he may be treating you like one of the guys. So that means there are no special favors like saving you a seat, giving you special attention or driving you home.
8. He avoids you
There is a chance he might have picked up on your interest and he will start to avoid you. It is likely he won’t sit next to you and makes sure there are other people seated between you two or he will avoid going out with your common friends if he knows you will be there because he doesn’t want to see you.
9. He doesn’t remember the things that are important to you
Does your crush never seem to remember your birthday? Or, if you tell him about an important event coming up, does he forget all about it right away? If he can’t seem to keep track of the things that matter to you, then he definitely isn’t that into you. It’s probable that you remember literally everything that is important to him, and this is because you actually like him. If he had a crush on you, too, it wouldn’t be that hard for him to ask you about the big parts of you life once in a while.
