Ladies if he isn’t calling like his heart is on fire, then he might not be so into you. Calling goes a long way and the most likely way to express your emotions best is to call. What if he likes to chat?

Chatting is good but calling is best, a guy can chat with 10 girls at the same time but when he picks that phone up to call then it means you are on his list of importance.

Calling is a vital aspect of communication and if he is not doing that then you might want to rethink that date. If he really wants to take that date to the next level, he will call every day and never gets tired.

2. Checking Out Another Chick While He is With You

That is definitely a total turn off, don’t you just want to scream guy am still here! When a guy is into you then no other lady matters. Respecting you should be the top on his list, he should have his eyes all on you.

You do not want to have to worry if his heart is with you at all times, Do you? Guys tend to get wrapped up easily in a girl if they are not playing games but if they are then their attention can get diverted asap.

Checking out another chick while he is with you might be the sign you need to get out before you fall for him.

3. Check His Manner Of Approach

Ladies if there is one thing you should always take note of is how a man approaches you. If he is the guy who respects ladies then he won’t have his eyes racing all over your body while he talks.

Does he look you straight in the eye when he approached? Was he polite when he asked for your contact? If yes to these then he is on the right track but if no he might just be a player.

Politeness should be ascertained in his manners of approach. ”Hello beautiful” might actually be more pleasant than” You look hot”

4. He Cancels Dates Without Tangible Reasons

Does he always bail out at the last minutes of your date?  Then he might be up to something.

If there is one thing you can be sure of is how much a guys ego means to him and he would not cancel a date because he might lose his respect if he does that often, especially if he likes the girl in question, but if a guy cancels dates frequently with no tangible reasons then he might have other fishes in his pot to fry.

If he wants a relationship to blossom he will keep to dates.

5. He Has A Female Bestie

Ladies take note; the issue is not having a female bestie but the issue is how close they are.

Do they hang out very often? Does he like to talk about her? Does he make excuses for her? If he does then these are all red flags telling you he might be in love with his bestie. Guys tend to keep girls they are in love with but can not have due to some reasons, as friends.

Have you heard the saying that goes; ”If she can not be a lover, let her be my friend”. This might be applicable here. Girl and Guy bestie just don’t mix well.

6. He Talks A lot About Himself

Does he like the sound of his own voice than yours? Doesn’t he want to hear all about you too?

You are supposed to listen to each other babes, but if he keeps going on and on about himself then he might be into himself.
