How To Tell If a Guy Friend Likes You
Response to reader questions I've received regarding specific situations.

It is also possible that he is not interesting in a relationship, and he does see you as just a friend he enjoys flirting with.

In this situation, you have two options. Your first option is to let things stay at status quo for now, but make yourself available to others.

Remain close friends with this guy, but if someone shows interest in you or asks you out, go for it. Don’t put your whole life on hold for the possibility of a maybe relationship.

Your second option is to talk to him. Tell him you want to go out on a real date.

Sometimes this is when women jump right to “I want a “real” or committed relationship.” Instead of trying to tie him to a fence post, just ask him out.

After a couple dates, you may decide he was much better as a friend.

The downside to this option is that he may say no, and you need to accept that.

If a guy flat out tells you he is not interested, I do not recommend tying up your time and life trying to convince him otherwise. You are worth more than that.

Now, let me take a minute to tell you what you should NOT do in this situation.

You should not play games!

You should not do things to see if you can make him jealous, you should not make up situations where you need him to “save” you, and you should not start avoiding him to see if he pursues you. These are childish, unneeded, and often ineffective.

Okay, this turned out to be longer than I thought, so I will post my second situation on how to tell if a guy likes you later today. In the mean time, CLICK HERE to watch my free video on the #1 dating mistake women make.
