When it comes to other women, we can almost always tell off the back who is being real and who isn’t. But with men, things are different and a lot more complicated, especially in matters of the heart.

So how can you tell when a man is saying one thing but actually means something else? These are major red flags that should put you on alert:

He Has Zero Follow Through

Say to him, “You said you’d call me — what’s up?” and he’ll promise to do better. And yet, he won’t follow through the next time with his promise. He can’t say he’s not going to call, but his actions prove that calling is low on his priority list.

He Flirts…With Everybody

The best way to tell if a man means it when he flashes that smile your way? See how he acts with other women who come around. If he seems to give the eye to every woman he meets, don’t take him seriously.

You Just Don’t Trust Him

He Pulls a Disappearing Act

He’s there for the good times, but goes ghost right when you need him. That’s his way of letting you know you can’t lean on him.

You Tell Him How You Really Feel

And nothing changes. He said he felt the same way, but things haven’t gone to the next level. It’s his way of saying he’s not as interested in moving forward as he thought when he can’t use his words.

He’s Always Kind of Unavailable

Not picking up the first time you call and waiting until later is his way of saying “I’m not ready for a 24/7 commitment and to be there when you need me.” He’s just not real enough to say it.

He Cancels Plans Last Minute

It happens to everyone from time to time. But if he does it all the time, he’s clearly playing games and not interested in telling you that he’s just not that into you after all.
