Bro, She’s Just Not That Into You: 10 Signs She’s Putting You In The Friend Zone

Bro, She’s Just Not That Into You: 10 Signs She’s Putting You In The Friend Zone
Sex

So let’s say you’re a guy out there and you want to know if the current girl you’re into possibly has the same feelings towards you. Well, if any of the following situations below have happened to you, then you, my friend, may very well want to reconsider confessing your undying love for her.

Here are ten signs she’s just not that into you:

Her Text Messages To You Are Short, One-Word Responses

This is an easy one. You’re sending long text message sonnets to the young lady you are trying to court, and all you’re getting back is ‘hey, ‘sure, ‘cool, and ‘okay’ type responses? Yeah, she’s just not interested in you, bro.


If It Takes Her More Than A Day To Respond to Your Email, Text, Tweet, Facebook Message or Voicemail…

This may seem like an extreme measure, but trust me; the attention span of women and men in Generation-Y is that of a buzzing gnat. More than 24 hours to respond to your social inquiry means that she is more than capable of going a day without contacting you. And do you really want to deal with a girl who isn’t constantly thinking about you in the first place?


She Cancels Your Date At The Very Last Minute

Another telltale sign… If she cancels last minute, like literally forty minutes before your date is supposed to start, it means she’s not as into you as you thought she was. Women can come up with all the excuses in the world, but according to my very attractive homegirls who do this on regular basis, the only real reason behind this behavior is: “hanging out with him just wasn’t a top propriety for me.” Word.


She Mentions Her Ex-Boyfriend To You On More Than Two Occasions In A One Week-Time Frame

She’s thinking about her ex, dude. It means she isn’t thinking about you.


She Isn’t Comfortable Talking About Sex In Front Of You… Whether You Are A Third Party Or Not

Listen guys, talking about sex should not be an off-limits topic with any of the women you are involved with in your life. If this is not a conversation starter for you or the girl in your life, then it is a conversation ender. It means she doesn’t like that.


She’s Comfortable Talking About The Person She Is Currently Interested In… In Front Of You

This seems like a catch-22, but logically, there is a motive behind it. If she does not see you as a romantic suitor, then talking about the current guy (or guys) she is interested in banging, means you are her Duckie from “Pretty in Pink.” You are just…the…friend.


She Only Returns Your Phone Calls When She Needs Something

Women are not as innocent as you may think. The only time you are having your phone calls or text messages returned is when she’s asking for a favor? Welcome to the land of no return.


She Makes You Hold Her Purse In Public

Again… you are in the friend zone (or you’re just another pussy-whipped guy).


She Says, “I Wish Guys Out There Were More Like You”

Really? Do I have to explain this one? Do you really need me to break it down for you? These are friend zone words if I’ve ever heard them. Women NEVER date the guys that are like everyone else. They usually go after the unique fella that everyone else wants. Beware of these words, compadres. If ever uttered, she is definitely not that into you.


She Makes You The Designated Driver

It may sound funny as hell, but if she makes you the DD every weekend, you should interpret that, as she wants no ‘excuse juice’ in you. It means, there will be no “Whatever Happens In Vegas” moments between you two. The Designated Driver = Mr. Safe. He is the guy who makes sure everyone leaves at a certain time, and he’s the one who talks the cops out of a possible broken taillight ticket.

Remember, men, you’ve been warned.
