It’s easy to tell when you like someone, and want them in your life, because it’s you, and you can explain how you feel. But the difficulty lies in knowing how other people feel about you, and whether they feel the same way you do about them. Sometimes, you like someone and want to be with them so bad, but you are not sure how they truly feel.
Women aren’t the only ones who friend-zone men, men also friend-zone women. If you’re a woman, and you’re not so sure what your relationship status is with that guy you care about, here are signs to look out for— signs you may have been put in the friend-zone by that man.
1.HE TALKS ABOUT OTHER WOMEN AROUND YOU
This is not always so, but mostly true for guys who do not feel anything serious for the female friend in their life. If a guy is very comfortable enough to talk about other women when you’re together, forget it, he’s definitely not into you— why? A man who is interested in being with you beyond ordinary friendship would never raise talks about another woman around you because he knows it would scupper his chances.
2. HE MAKES EXCUSES AS TO WHY YOU CANNOT BE TOGETHER
So you finally muster up some gut, and tell him how you feel about him, and all he does is say something along the lines of, “Thank you, but…I am not ready to date right now” or “you’re like a sister to me, I can’t take advantage of you like that” etc… it’s a clear indication that he’s not into you. People who want something so badly grab it when opportunity provides them with a chance to do so.
3. HE RARELY SHOWERS YOU WITH COMPLIMENTS
It’s common for men to use sweet words on women they care about or admire— it’s a ploy employed to make her aware of their interest in being with her. When the man you care about doesn’t do anything like that, it may be a clear indication that he’s not feeling you that way.
4. HE RARELY KEEPS IN TOUCH
How can you care about someone and want to be with them so badly, and go days and weeks without communicating with them in any way— no texts, no calls, no nothing? Ladies, if that guy shows this sort of attitude towards you, a rethink of your position may be in order.
So, there ladies; remember that being friend-zoned doesn’t mean you’re not good enough, it only means that you’re probably not meant to be with that man. So keep your head high, and hold on for the next!
