Don't waste your time with someone who isn't interested.
Have you ever sat across from a guy and wondered, "Is he really interested in what I'm saying?" Sometimes it can be hard to tell! Poker faces are real, but there are always telltale signs that the person you're with just isn't that into you.
Maybe they're quiet. Maybe they're on their phone. Maybe they're blatantly checking out other people in the bar. Either way, the signs are ALWAYS there — you just have to know what to look for.
Just like in their personalities, every zodiac has their own signs for showing their disinterest. Some are more brutal than others, but each is unique. Once you know what to look for, it's not hard to pick out the red flags that just scream, "WALK AWAY, THEY'RE BORED."
Why waste your time on someone who doesn't even want to take time on you? It's not worth it.
WHAT HE'S DOING: Looking at other girls, watching tv, not “really” listening to what you have to say.
An Aries man will move on quickly if he’s disinterested. He'll be on the search for something new to pique his interest. An uninterested Aries man won't even give you the time of day. He'll be looking at the wall, at his food, at his watch, literally anything other than you because to him, his time could be better spent elsewhere.
He's not really listening to what you're saying, but probably giving the semi-interested nod with an occasional "Oh really?" If you’re moving too slowly for him, he’ll move on to something else. They love the chase, and if they’re not chasing, walk away.
WHAT HE'S DOING: Avoiding you, shutting you out.
A Taurus will pull away quickly if he’s not feeling it. Taurus men crave security and reliability. They want something that will last, and the second they get a notion that you’re not that “something,” they’ll shut down. Taurus men have no interest in someone that isn’t “in it for the long haul,” so they’re quick to turn off if you’re turning them off.
Short answers and bland responses are telltale signs that this Taurus isn’t feeling it.
WHAT HE'S DOING: Distancing himself, making decisions without you, not touching you.
Gemini men are two-sided. They have a “fun” side, and a more personal side. With these two sides, they can be very indecisive, so from you, they want decision. What’s more, both Gemini men and women hate being alone. When a Gemini starts distancing themselves from you and stops asking your opinion, they’re not into it.
Gemini are affectionate and quick to latch on, so if they’re not latching onto you, move on.
WHAT HE'S DOING: Getting short with you, avoiding deep, emotional conversation.
It’s hard to tell when a Cancer isn’t feeling the vibe. They’re tough shells to crack, and will put up invisible barriers to protect themselves. Cancer men WANT to feel that connection, and if they don’t they get even more guarded and cynical. They crave intimacy, even in conversation, so the moment they start asking you about trivial topics (weather, temperature, how bland the restaurant’s food is), they’re already checked out.
A Cancer won’t want to hurt your feelings, so they’re probably the guy to stir the leftover ice in his drink while he waits for something more interesting to happen.
WHAT HE'S DOING: Looks at other girls, stops paying attention to you.
A Leo wants you to love him. He’ll buy you a drink, he’ll entertain you with a dance, he’ll tell you jokes. But the second he stops feeling admired, he’s quick to move on to something (or someone) who will give him the attention he craves. When a Leo is disinterested, he gets the “wandering eye.” He’ll look around for everything and anything that will look back. If you’re having a conversation with a Leo and he’s NOT focusing totally on you, he’s bored.
When he stops paying attention to you, stop paying attention to him.
WHAT HE'S DOING: Shuts down, stops talking, stops calling.
Virgo men have very specific tastes, but they’re hesitant to speak out if something doesn’t fall in line with these tastes. Virgo men are much more prone to a complete shutdown. If he’s not feeling it, expect awkward silences. Even though he’s not saying it, he’s thinking it.
WHAT HE'S DOING: Skips out on dates, stops texting you back on time.
Men born in Libra seek a connection. Just like a scale, they want you to balance them, and vice versa. If you cause any type of imbalance, however, this Libra is quick to walk away. Libras can be noncommittal and indecisive, but want that their partners are. When he stops asking your opinion or what you want to do, he’s over it, and there’s a good chance he’s about to head out.
WHAT HE'S DOING: Telling you it's over.
Scorpio men can be harsh. They cut right to the point, often times with disregard for others. If he’s really not that into you, he’ll end it quickly and abruptly. Sometimes it can be hard to recognize when a Scorpio isn’t feeling the love. But when with one, watch out for his sarcastic comments and complacent attitudes.
Scorpios wear their disinterest on their sleeves, and it can be painfully visible.
WHAT HE'S DOING: Says he "wants to talk", isn't laughing or joking with you.
While usually playful, a Sagittarius will not hesitate to tell you how it is. They’re straight shooters. If he’s not into you, there’s no question that a Sagittarius man will let you know. It may not be in a mean way, but these guys don’t beat around the bush, especially in matters of the heart. When he stops being his happy-go-lucky self, get ready, because he’s about to speak some truth.
WHAT HE'S DOING: Busying himself with just about everything BUT you.
Capricorn men are headstrong go-getters. They’re responsible, reliable, and driven. So when they start talking about their work or their “to-do lists,” it means they’re thinking less about you, and more about what they need to get done. It’s not your fault, they’re just tunnel-visioning. When a Capricorn focuses more on the “I have to do…” instead of the “I want to do…,” they’re a lost cause and you should move on. Because really, do you want to hear about their managerial responsibilities anyway?
WHAT HE'S DOING: Looks bored, doesn't continue even SIMPLE conversation, being rude.
An Aquarius man will look OBVIOUSLY bored and detached when he’s not into you. They move on quickly and they crave constant intellectual stimulation. Without it, they’re very prone to shut down altogether. If you have the attention of an Aquarius, you’ll know. They’ll ask questions, they’ll pick your brain, and they’ll dig deeper to get to know you. So if none of those things are happening (and if they’re rolling their eyes in boredom), it’s time to walk away.
Don’t waste your time with a bored Aquarius, they’ll just bore you too.
WHAT HE'S DOING: Pulls away from you, doesn't confess anything real to you anymore, wishy-washy in his plans.
Pisces men are dreamers. They’re overly idealistic sometimes, but will never (ever) look to hurt you by telling you they’re not interested. They might even convince themselves that they’re wrong in their disinterest, just to make you happy. When they start pulling out the phrases, “Well I mean…,” or “But like…,” it means they’re making excuses and trying to preface whatever sentence follows with a statement that makes THEM feel better. They don’t do it to make you mad, but it’s a giveaway that they’re mulling things over in their mind.
Don’t wait. Just go. Waiting for a Pisces to make a decision is like waiting for water in a drought.
