5. She works with you. She could be either your cubicle-mate or your company’s client. Even if she is interested in you and, in any other scenario, wouldn’t hesitate for a minute to get to know you intimately, she may be wary of the consequences associated with office romances. Although they happen quite frequently, everyone still hears horror stories about when a work relationship goes south. Fewer women are willing to risk their professional reputations, office ridicule or possible termination for a fun fling. She may have a hard time not flirting with you, but if she goes cold when you request her cell number for personal use, she may need her job more than a date.
6. She is still getting over a breakup. She may be out with friends and willing to talk to men, but if she is still reeling over an ex, she is not willing to open up too much. Women and men handle breakups differently. Women tend to prolong the post-breakup mode with extended rehashing of how it all fell apart, or numerous sob sessions. Unfortunately, if you catch her in this mode, she may be guarded and not ready to open up to someone new. Bad timing is more of a factor here than anything else.

7. She lied for no reason. This sounds kind of generic, so I will clarify. Maybe you met once before in a public place and chatted about general topics, with the assumption you would ever cross paths again–and then you did. It’s possible she could have blurred some details or overstated her persona the first time in an effort to impress you, thinking no damage could come of it. But now, if she gives you her number, she will have to explain her previous embellishments. Some women may not care and assume you will not remember, but many will not want to perpetuate the lie.
8. She doesn’t know you well enough yet. This is a valid reason most women use. Unfortunately, if she continues to say this after multiple opportunities to engage in open communication, then she may not want to go further and doesn’t know a gentle way to tell you she’s no longer interested. At this point, it’s time to move on. However, if you have other opportunities to chat and she continues to open up each time, she will give you clues that she is ready and willing to take it a step further. Patience is sometimes all you need.
