When dating a man, women often get caught in looking for signs and what they could possibly mean, even though those signs couldn’t, sometimes, be any clearer. They like to think of themselves as being the exception to the rule. And while every relationship is special, some signs have only one explanation. He’s just not that into you.

1. He’s Not Asking You Out 

I know that time has changed, that now, women and men are equal (almost), but when it comes to starting a relationship, men and women cease to be equal. When a man likes and wants a woman, he’ll ask her out. It has nothing to do with not having her phone number or being busy in his work or coming out of a difficult breakup or any of the other excuses women like to feed themselves when they like a man and think that they like them back. Trust me, if he wants you, he’ll find you and ask you out. If he doesn’t, then he’s just not that into you.
It’s important to let the man take action and start the relationship, he likes to feel in control. And who wants to be with someone that can’t find the courage to ask them out.

2 He’s Not Calling You

When someone is so into you, he’ll want to be with you every waken moment, and if he can’t he’ll want to talk to you, to call you. It’s easy to find excuses when someone you like doesn’t call you back or says that he’ll call you later and never does, or at least, not exactly when he says he’ll do. You might think to yourself that he’s too busy with his work, that he has simply forgotten. You have to know something, “When you like someone, they don’t just slip your mind”. No one is too busy to give a phone call. If he doesn’t call, then he simply chose not to call.

What’s important about a man calling especially when he says he will, is the expectations his promise builds, the hurtful thing about waiting and checking your phone every so often to see if he called. A simple phone call can mean way too much, it means that the person is always thinking about you and that he cares about you. And you deserve a phone call

3. He’s not dating you

Hanging out or seeing each other every other week when the distance isn’t that significant, wouldn’t be qualified as dating. No matter what excuses you keep fading yourself; this is better than nothing, he’s afraid of intimacy, we’re taking it slow… that still means that he isn’t that into you to date you officially. Believe me, if he cares enough, he’ll claim you his at the first opportunity.

4. He’s not having sex with you

If a man likes you, then he would want to kiss you and never take his hands off of you. Even if he doesn’t, to respect your wishes or any other obvious reason, he would still want to and it would show right on his face. So, if a man doesn’t look so hot for you, even if he says he loves you, then know that he isn’t that into you and that you’re like a friend to him.

5. He’s having sex with someone else

I know it’s not that easy to break a relationship for one mistake, or so you can think of it, but the truth is there’s no excuse for cheating; not problems, not you gaining some weight… There are many ways to solve and approach any problem that shows up and none of these ways include cheating. Keep in mind that cheating doesn’t happen accidentally, it’s the result of a planning and an execution.

6. He only wants to see you when he’s drunk

Some women think nothing wrong with being with someone who only wants to see them when he’s drunk. Some, especially, love the things their man says when he’s drunk. Well, you shouldn’t believe everything a man says when he’s drunk. Moreover, being constantly drunk has a lot to do with the way the man feels about himself when he’s troubled and has little self-esteem, they tend to drink more. And believe me, you don’t want to be with someone like that. You deserve an attentive and sober man.

7. He doesn’t want to marry you
The truth is, marriage had quite a bad publicity in those past decades. However, that never held people from getting married. If your man is bringing up every possible excuse about why he doesn’t believe in marriage whenever the subject is brought, then listen more closely, because he might be saying it outright, I don’t want to get married “to you”. Whatever bad experience he might have been through, when a man finds the love of his life, he would jump right away to claim you his forever. More importantly, never let anyone make you feel stupid for wanting to get married and if marriage is your wish, then the right man would do it for you.

8. He’s breaking up with you

If he breaks up with you and then starts calling all the time asking about you, or wants to hang out with you as friends but then you end up in his bed, then know that he isn’t that into you. Because someone who really wants you, after breaking up, he’ll be right by your door telling you how much he misses you and asking you to be back with him. Otherwise, he’s just feeling lonely.

Then deciding to go back together is up to you, but just keep in mind that the guy in front of you, is the same one who looked you in the eye and broke up with you telling you that he no longer needs you in his life.

9. He’s disappeared on you

When a guy disappears on you and never call you back, don’t start calling him asking him why he had done it or imagine excuses for him that made him do what he did. Simply, he wasn’t into you, but also he wasn’t man enough to break it to you. No answer is enough of an answer and the best thing you can do is to move on and never look back. “Sometimes you have to get closure all by yourself”

I know that you deserve to know why, but would anything he might say satisfy you, I doubt it. And does calling him back will change his mind, I highly doubt that.

10. He’s married (or has a girlfriend)

You can feed yourself all the excuses you want as for why it’s okay to date someone who isn’t available. He might be a good person, you’re in love, his wife is mean toward him… but that wouldn’t change the fact that you’re dating a married man and that can’t be right because, he’s being dishonest, he’s cheating on his wife, he has no regards for you and you’ll be helping a man cheat on his wife.

You’re better than that and you deserve much more than that, you deserve someone who’s available for you.

11. He’s a selfish jerk or a bully

One good rule to go by, is to ask yourself: is he making me happy? Because someone who’s really into you will want to do the things that make you happy. Now, he might be a good person with some good qualities, but if he treats you badly and bullies you, then he’s just not that good for you. No pressure can justify his yelling at you and no matter how fat you are, that doesn’t give him the right to point it out to you every now and then. Even if he’s not into your family and friends, he would make the effort to be nice if that means a lot to you.

Being told to get out of these relationships isn’t that easy to apply, but being told that you’re way better than those relationships, that’s where to start off. In any relationship, make sure you’re happy, that’s a good way to know if you’re with Mr right or not.

The book: He's just not that into you

Simplifying our life is a good goal one could set up as a new year resolution, yet, many people don't take any action on it. Below is a list of actions that you can take today that will simplify your life considerably

1. Pack your lunch: Instead of wasting your money, make your own lunch or pack leftovers from the night before. This is even a healthier alternative.

2. Cook one more night a week: This will not only save you more money but will also save you the calories if you aren't eating out. Adding to that you'll get to spend more time with your family.

3. De-clutter your desk: Clearing your desk will make it more spacious and more comfortable for you to work and create. Organizing your desk will also save you the time you normally spend rifling through the piles of papers.

4. Stop buying things you don’t need: De-cluttering your desk or place and then replacing what you get rid of with more things you don’t need, doesn’t help. Whenever you like something and feel the urge to buy it, ask yourself “do I need it now?”.

5. Own Less: Any clothes you no longer wear and are just taking up room, give them away to a charity. Make sure that anything you own has a use. If not, get rid of it. Don’t let your stuff own you!

6. Limit Your Choices: It has been proven that the more choices you get, the less happy you feel. Take the example of choosing among ice-cream flavors. If you love chocolate and you get to choose between chocolate, strawberry or vanilla, you’ll choose the chocolate and feel pretty satisfied. Now if you get to choose between dark chocolate, Chocolate Peppermint Crunch, Chocolate Fudge Brownie… you might end up regretting your choice and wondering if you have to choose again. Now, this goes with everything in your life. Always limit your choices.

7. Learn the Power of No: Learn to say a polite “No, thank you” to anything that might hold you from the things you love and the goals you care about achieving. 

8. Spend Some Time Disconnected: As much as useful the technology could be, it might take some of your time you otherwise could’ve spent it in more important things, like meeting the people you love or enjoying the view instead of watching it through your phone screen. Don’t let life pass you by while you click away.

9. Spend Time with Those You Care About: We often don’t realize how important it is to spend quality time with the people you care about. We take them for granted forgetting that they’re the ones that matter and that they’re the ones who’ll be there for you when it gets though.

10. Give More: We need to give as much as we need to get. In fact, it has been proven that giving provides us with a deep satisfaction and a feeling of fullness like nothing else. Make giving a goal in your life. You can not only give money and things but even giving some of your time might be the most precious gift.

11. Learn More About Minimalism: Start reading books that will help you lead a more minimalist lifestyle and follow people who are living such a life. It is important to live simply, but what is more important is to keep learning how to maintain your life that simple.

12. Consider a Smaller Home: If you intend to move, consider a smaller home. Limiting your living space will make you limit the things you don’t need.

13. Switch Chemical Beauty Product With Natural Ones: Beauty products can burn a hole in your pocket and leave behind unwanted side effect. Whereas, natural remedies and treatments are safe to use and more effective.

Check out these natural remedies:

14. Try Living Without a Car: Walk, bike, or take public transportation. Using your car less will give you more time to think and the opportunity to interact with people and notice your surroundings.

15. Choose Quality Over Quantity: You can apply this to every aspect of your life. For example, instead of buying different jeans, buy one that is with a good quality.

16. Start Your Day With Gratitude: Always find reasons to be thankful. This will provide you with deep satisfaction and a feeling of fullness way better than owning more could.

17. Pack Lightly: From going to school, work to vacations, try to pack the least you can. You can try the one bag rule which consists of going out with only one bag, even in vacations. Remember that life is about experiences and not things.

18. Pay off Your Debt: Whether it’s student loan debt, credit card debt, car debt… paying it off will make it much easier for you to manage your finances and you will have less debt to stress about.
