does he like me

Sorry, he just doesn't like you like that.

Love, and what looks like love but isn’t, are two things that can be very confusing. You think it’s pretty clear that the guy you have your eye on likes you but you have to wonder, "Does he like me enough?"

You try to analyze his body language and what he says, and it just adds up to more confusion. Why can’t we read people more easily? If someone just wants to be friends and hang out, that’s cool, but you’d like to know so that you don’t get your hopes up.

Then there’s the guy who really is only interested in sex. You could be OK with that if he wasn’t acting as if he wanted a relationship with you.

Dissecting his every text and gesture aren’t giving you the answers you seek, and just when you think you’ve figured out what he wants, he flips the script and has you believing that your conclusion about his behavior is all wrong.

You wonder if he means to be jerking you around emotionally or if he doesn’t know himself what it is that he really wants. There are people who enjoy messing with other people’s emotions as it makes them feel powerful, and you’d hate to be the object of that kind of playing around.


You’d prefer not to be in a situation where you like him a huge amount and can see a future with him, and he just thinks of you as an acquaintance — or even worse, like one of the guys. Sometimes, you’d rather he didn’t like you at all so at least you’d know where you stood.

How about some help here? Astrology can help clarify things for you and give you some indication of where he’s at emotionally. Here’s some insight into what he does when he likes you but doesn’t like you enough, based on his zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

You like how spontaneous he is, but the fact that there are never any planned dates is starting to seem shady. It's probably not that he detests making plans, he just doesn't like you enough to commit to anything in case something better comes up. You're trapped between being a booty call and a friend.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

You think it's a good sign when he lets his jealousy show when you talk about another guy, but his constant flirting with other women kind of cancels that out. If he can't focus on you long enough to ignore other women, he doesn't like you enough.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

He's an excuse-genius and always has an elaborate story on why he can't get together with you. He's such a giver — always taking a sick friend to the doctor or helping someone else move. The truth is he's not that nice, it's either that he'd rather do anything than hang out with you or he doesn't think being honest with you is worth the effort.

He likes you enough to tell you everything about his thoughts and feelings, but not enough to ask you about yours. You're a sounding board, a shoulder to cry on, but not someone to be in a romantic relationship with.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

It's great that he has so many friends but not so great that the only time you see him is with his friends. He couldn't be more obvious that he sees you as a friend, not a girlfriend.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

At first, when you hear him say things about how great you look or how funny you are, you think it means that he really must like you. Then you realize that those aren't compliments — they're critiques about the way that he wishes you'd change. He's trying to change you into his ideal of the perfect woman, not appreciating the fabulous woman you already are.

He likes you enough to flirt outrageously when he runs into you at a party or event, but he doesn't like you enough to put your number in his phone or even Facebook friend you to further any contact.

Look, you know he's not that into you when he takes forever to respond to a text and never really initiates any contact. If he was genuinely interested in you, there would be a steady stream of messages, texts, and calls.

You love hearing him talk about all the places you'll go and explore — everywhere from Disney World to Tahiti — and yet he never follows through or books any kind of trip. He won't even make a mini-vacation a reality.

If you're wondering where you stand with your guy and he tries to fix you up with one of his friends, you know he isn't interested in anything more than friendship. He doesn't believe that the two of you are a good match, so he becomes your matchmaker. Sweet, but ouch.

He likes you enough to stay up all hours of the night talking to you and making all kinds of inside jokes, but he doesn't like you enough to let those conversations go deeper and become more meaningful.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

He's told you that he has feelings for you but he hasn't actually done anything to back up those feelings. There has been no talk of making it official — not on Facebook or anywhere. He still introduces you as his friend.
