How to tell if he’s really busy or just too busy for you.
Time To Walk Away?
Having trouble reading the person you’re interested in most or the one you’re with? Here are nine ways to tell if he’s really busy or just too busy for you.
You Talk Little (Or Barely At All)
If he returns your calls and text messages days after you reach out and ignores the fact that he’s been distant, something’s up. A person interested in you wants to build the relationship and communication is a major part of that. While a little distance at the start of a relationship isn’t uncommon, a lackluster effort with odd excuses as to why is a major sign that he’s not that into you.
He’s Open about other Women
Many men will bring up other women as a push-a-way mechanism. If he’s comfortable enough talking to you about other women, he’s probably not as interested in you as he is in those other women.
He Doesn’t Bring You around Friends or Family
If he doesn’t want to bring you around the people that matter most, he’s not interested in progressing with you. Unless you’re just meeting, if he’s not bringing you around family and friends, it’s a sign that you’re relationship is not moving in the right direction.
He Tries to Change You
If he’s nitpicky or critical about the things most men value in a woman–your body, your personality, even your dreams, this is a sign that he’s more focused on what he believes is wrong with you, not what makes you beautiful. Unless he’s bringing something up to encourage and lift you, he’s not the one for you.
The Relationship Is More Physical than Emotional
If the only time he’s available is after midnight and only presses you for a physical relationship, this is a major indicator that he’s bad news. A man who’s into you doesn’t want to just get to know your body, he wants to get to know your mind and your spirit.
He’s Always Texting or Messaging Other Women
If you’re the woman he’s into, he will cherish the time you both spend together and not want to jeopardize what you’re building by talking to other women. Period. And if the list of other women he’s talking to is long, this may be an indicator that he’s insecure and needy. This is a major sign that he is not prince charming.
He Never Asks About Your Day
This may seem small but when a man is into you, he values what’s going on in your life, even the little things. We’re not talking about asking with a breathing-down-your-throat kind of aggression, but one with curiosity and wonderment.
He Works Hard to Pencil You In
If you’re the only one initiating dates and when you do, he has trouble making room for you in his schedule, it’s not you, it’s him. The only men that should be working that hard to pencil you in are celebrities and secret agents. And even those men find a way to make time for the women that matter.
You’re Always Wondering
It’s time for a reality check. A man who’s interested doesn’t leave you wondering. Let go of the excuses. It’s not that he’s too shy, too busy or too intimidated. Trust your inner voice. If he’s into you, there will be little need to wonder.
