1. He has a good reason to be very private. Perhaps he has been publicly ridiculed, is insecure or has a high profile job. It's completely understandable that he'd want to keep his personal life private. It may take some time for him to open up but there isn't any reason to think he's not worth the wait. Facebook Doesn't Ruin Relationships, People Do.

2. He doesn't trust his self-restraint. He loves to tell stories about the people he deals with on a daily basis. He is smart enough not to tell these stories publicly. Perhaps he has a crazy family, a horrible job or does anything involving customer service. If he were on Facebook, he'd undoubtedly get himself in some trouble. He's probably fun to be with but keep an eye out for how he handles conflict. He may be the type to say hurtful words he'll later regret.

3. It would ruin his "player" ways. He wouldn't be able to date multiple women if they would all have access to his Facebook page. Keeping a secret, private page would be too much work, as he needs to focus his time on making the ladies feel special. If you're not looking for anything serious, enjoy his company. But don't forget to be careful! Relationships of Convenience

4. He's completely self-centered. He's not logging on to see what's happening in anyone's lives because he simply doesn't care. This is the same guy who will ignore your texts, pass you on the street without noticing and forget your birthday. He's clearly not a keeper.

5. He's uncomfortable with technology. It is entirely possible that he doesn't have enough time, patience or interest to learn the ins and outs of Facebook. Given the frequency at which Facebook changes formats, who can blame him? He probably has a great real-life social network and doesn't see the need to have one on Facebook.
