So you’ve got your eye on that one girl. She’s low maintenance, easy to talk to, and downright hot. Problem is, you’re hovering a little too close to the friend zone.
Sure, you can convince yourself that it’s better to be friends first and test out the waters, but will you ever make it past that point?
As Askmen’s top signal, this one should be your first red flag. What she really means is: she’s not ready for a relationship with you. Don’t fall for this crap. Move on and move on fast.
2. “I’m focusing on me right now
Again, this is laughable. Thought Catalog translates this perfectly, “I’d rather be single than with you.” She’s doing you a favor by spelling out that she’s just not that into you.
3. “I’m super busy”
This is one of my favorites and I may have used it more than necessary at one point or another. If you find yourself constantly being bombarded with some of the lamest excuses, take the hint and walk away.
Let me get this straight. She wants more guys like you, but she doesn’t want you. Interesting. You can’t possibly miss this. She doesn’t think you’re hot, but she knows you’re a decent catch.
5. You’re always calling her or she doesn’t answer you
So you’re feeling pretty good that you’ve made it all the way to number five without checking off any of the flags. I’m guessing she even answers all of your texts and phone calls which leaves you feeling a bit more confident. Or maybe she doesn’t even answer you back. Has she ever initiated the conversation? If not, the feelings only go one way and you’re wasting your time. That leads us to my next point.
6. She only calls you when she needs something
7. She’s bored and distracted
8. She talks about other guys
