Mixed Signals

Welcome to the wonderful world of Dating – or not dating. “Hanging out” with that very interesting FRIEND on a Friday or Saturday night is simply innocent. (But you have to admit that that is what makes your weekend interesting, right?)

It’s that thrill that we live for though, that uncertainty- the guessing game, the thrill of the chase. You wait for some one to call, text and sometimes it drives you insane if they don’t. You deny to yourself that you don’ t like them like them because you don’t want to be disappointed if they end up NOT liking you.
But then, signals could go haywire and get confusing. It’s worse than getting a rejection because you don’t know whats going on. Do you go with it or just forget about it?
Here is a list of Mixed signals that me and my girls hate… feel free to comment and add to the list …
Mixed signal #1: He holds your hand, he keeps the conversation light and easy but does not say anything.
Mixed signal #2: he says she just wants to be friends and then kisses you.

Mixed signal #3: He asks for your number but never calls.

Mixed signal #4:He always says yes when you ask him out or always asks you out and its just the two of you.

Mixed signal #5: He’s always complimenting you and taking you on lots of “dates,” but he doesn’t even try to kiss you on the lips.

From the experts:

“Let’s get something straight: Most guys aren’t interested in being just friends. If he’s whispering lots of sweet nothings and treating you to nice dinners or fun outings, then he’s into you—but he’s scared that you don’t feel the same. “Lots of guys are so afraid of rejection that they can’t make that first move,” says Feinstein. It’ll be up to you to get the ball rolling, she says. “You may think that your interest in him is obvious, but you’ll need to send some unambiguous clues that you want things to get physical,” she says. So try going for a kiss yourself, or, if that’s not your style, try some subtle moves: holding his hand, standing or sitting a wee bit closer to him than normal, or (here’s the clincher) letting your eyes linger on his lips while he’s talking to you. All clear signs that you’re saying, Kiss me you fool!”

Mixed signal #6: He buys you boyfriendy type gifts for your birthday, for Christmas, he gives you what he got everyone.

Mixed Signal #7: He says he loves you and then does not call or text at all and mysteriously disappears.
Mixed signal #8: He wants to hang out with you, and you only — but he never says anything about what he is to you.
Mixed signal #9: He always ends up sitting next to you everywhere and waiting for you and talking to you – and he says its nothing.
Mixed signal # 10 : He treats you like a princess when youre together and then ignores you in a crowd.
Its just sad. when you dont know what you are to a person. Guys, don’t do that. it hurts not only you but the person who the attentions are directed to. Why cant people be honest?
I know that I am. Sometimes though, my honesty gets me into trouble. But its better that he knows than for me to totally deny and hide it….
You know what.. I hate this.
