When you are in the beginning of a relationship, you always hope that it will turn out to be something special.
But, sadly, that can’t be true when you run into the wrong guy whose only intention is to lead you on.
This guy won’t be honest enough with you to tell you that he doesn’t want anything serious right from the start.
Instead, he will try to keep you around for as long as he needs you, without ever fully committing to you.
If you are in a situation where you can’t be sure of a guy’s intentions for you, here are 6 signs he is just leading you on.
1. He doesn’t want to label things
One of the first signs that a guy is just leading you on and that he doesn’t plan on having anything serious with you is that he doesn’t want to put a label on your relationship.
You keep telling yourself that labeling things doesn’t have to mean anything and that there are other more important things between a couple but deep down, you want him to commit.
You want exclusivity because you are only dating him but you are not sure whether he is doing the same and that makes you feel insecure.
2. He doesn’t talk about the future
When a guy takes you seriously, he has serious future plans that include you.
But when a man is just leading you on, he will never talk to you about the future. At the same time, he won’t be honest and he will never tell you not to get your hopes up.
Instead, he will be ambiguous, telling you that time will reveal everything and that he doesn’t want to rush things.
He is doing this only to keep you around, and he doesn’t plan on staying with you for much longer. But he knows that he can’t tell you this because it would chase you away for good.
3. He is not interested in you
One of the signs that a guy doesn’t want anything serious with you is the lack of interest he shows about your life.
You clearly see that he doesn’t listen to you when you talk and that he doesn’t take you seriously.
This guy is uncomfortable around your friends and family and he doesn’t know basic details about you.
It’s about time you stop justifying him, by telling yourself that he is just reckless and that it is in every man’s nature to be disinterested.
But please don’t let him fool you—when a man truly loves you, he’ll put in the effort to remember every little thing about you.
4. He doesn’t include you in his life
It is not just that this guy doesn’t want to become a part of your life, he doesn’t include you in his either.
He never talks about the stuff that is important to him, you know almost nothing about his work and he never asks you to hang out with his group of friends.
As a matter of fact, he never introduces you to anyone important to him and you’ve started wondering if anyone in his life even knows about your existence.
This clearly shows that this guy doesn’t think of your relationship as important enough to let you become a part of his life.
5. He makes excuses
When a man is leading you on, he doesn’t love you enough and never will but he doesn’t want you to know it.
He wants you to stay hooked on him, so he’ll do anything in his power to avoid any kind of responsibility for his behavior and he will justify his actions.
This guy will always make excuses for the way he is treating you and nothing will ever be his fault.
But before you start believing him, you need to remember that where there is a will, there is a way.
6. He plays mind games
When you get involved with a guy who just wants to lead you on, he will play hot and cold mind games with you.
With him, you’ll never know where you stand and what he actually feels for you.
He will never be sincere with you and tell you he doesn’t love you enough and that he doesn’t plan on being with you. Instead, he will ask you to wait for him and that he needs more time.
There will be days when he’ll give you his full attention and then there will be weeks without him even contacting you.
And in those periods where he is nowhere to be found, when you feel like you are just about to get over him, he’ll come back into your life as if nothing has happened.
