How to tell if a guy just wants to be friends

How to tell if a guy just wants to be friends

It's very common that a woman will find that she has developed feelings for a male friend of hers. So getting right to the point, how can she tell if her guy friend just wants to be friends? Here's a list of attributes to consider:

1.) He doesn't want to have the relationship talk with you, or with anyone else

Very few women are direct with their feelings. Most women lead and tease in their conversations. However, guys always know where certain conversations are going. If he looks like he's about to break out in a sweat or in a rash, if he changes the topic, or if he talks about his love of the single life, he's definitely not interested in more.

2.) He likes keeping his options open

Again, this guy will sing and brag about all the girls he's loved before, and about the one's that he's about to love. This guy certainly doesn't want to be involved with his woman friend.

3.) He's never sends out romantic signals to her, ever

Most decent guys will make it a point not to lead his female friends on if he's not interested in her. Therefore, he won't get her hopes up with romantic signals or gestures.

3.) He never acts on the signals that she sends, or worse, he ignores her signals

When a woman wants to let a guy friend know she's interested, she'll throw out some signals. A guy that isn't interested won't respond to these, or he'll totally ignore them, making her feel rejected and humiliated.

4.) You're not his number one priority

His guy friends, his career, or anything else is a priority over his time with his female friend. Plainly put, when a guy is interested in a woman, everything else becomes second place.

5.) You're the only one actively doing the heavy lifting

If you are the one making the majority of the phone calls, and if he calls the most then it's on his terms, and only when it's fun for him to do so. When a guy is interested in a woman, she won't have to wonder when he'll call, because he'll call. If she is performing all of the heavy lifting when it comes to the phone calls, then he's letting her know that he's not interested.

You can follow these tips to find out if a guy wants to be just friends. But frankly, if she's friends with a guy who is this self-absorbed about women, then the woman in question might want to re-consider her friendship with such a guy as well!
