9 Reasons Why He's Just Not That Into You
Imagine this: You're stuck on the other end of the phone-line waiting for a this dude you met last night to text you. How do you know if he's into you or not? He may be shy, he may be playing the game, or he may even be heartbroken, but whatever the reason may be just make sure you aren't getting yourself stuck in a hopeless pool of disappointment.
Click next to read some tips that will help you acknowledge the signs of him not being that into you.
1. He hasn't asked you on a date...
If you guys just started talking. He should be interested, meaning he should be taking initiative and putting in work. You don't want some effortless attempt to give you attention, you want him to be genuinely feeling you. After the first or second day of talking to you a man usually knows if he's going to pursue you or not. So if he hasn't asked you on a date after a week, he's just not feeling the vibe. Don't waste your time! He's just not that into you.
2. Dry Convo
Some people are just not good texters or phone conversationalists. You can always tell when someone is trying; however, the one word answers via text or the awkward silences and lack of paying attention on the phone are definite signs. If he's not trying to get to know you, he's just not that into you.

3. He's always "busy"
There's 24-hours in the day, so he should definitely has time for you. You know your boo better than we do though. If he has three jobs and works a night shift then yea, he probably is too busy to chill, but our average joe's have one job (hopefully) and have time to put pics on the gram, play video games with friends, and play basketball all day. If you aren't a priority, he's just not that into you.
4. Always on the phone
He doesn't have to be a cheater, a liar or a player, but if a guy is always on his phone when he's with you, it just shows that he's being careless and you're not keeping his interest. If his inbox is more important than your quality time, he's just not that into you.

5. Booty Call
This is a given. It is inappropriate to get late night hit-ups, especially if it is technically the next morning. Don't let him hit you up at 12 a.m wanting to "chill." He's definitely interested, but in only one thing. If he can't contact you when the sun's out, he's just not that into you.
6. Avoiding physical contact
There's nothing wrong with a little PDA (public display of affection). He should be proud to call you his girl and a simple hand holding gesture is a cute and affective way to show that you're his. If he's not with it, he'll have no problem with you two being confused as brother and sister. That's not good. Test him, grab his hand, if he puts it in his pocket, he's just not that into you.
7. The Secret
It's been a while and you haven't met anyone is his life yet. When a guy doesn't want to show you off to his friends and family he's probably not satisfied with what he has. Don't let him take you for granted, you're fine just the way you are. If he doesn't want to bring you home to his momma, then he's just not that into you.
8. Canceling on you
You've finally worked up the gumption to initiate an outing between you two and something always happens to come up. Whether he "has to do something for his mom" or "his grandmother's sick," it's still a lame excuse. We get that life happens, but it's a little suspicious that it always happens when you are trying to have quality time. The point is, he's just not that into you.
9. Why is he ignoring me?
He hasn't answered your calls for weeks, he doesn't text you back, he responds to other peoples' picture comments and not yours...girl, what more of a sign do you need? He's just not that into you!
