Yes you have started to discover things, but you are still not sure, you are confused. Whilst not a comprehensive list, these traits show that the person you are dating could potentially be a sociopath. Charismatic and charming For the sociopath, image is everything.
At least the image that he/she gives to the outside world.
When you first meet, you will be bowled over at just how charismatic and charming he/she is. Sometimes this will seem false to you, He/she might tell you how incredible that you look. You just got out of bed, sat in your dressing gown, no makeup, and yes, you did actually see yourself in the mirror.
There’s enough dating advice / flirting tips stuff out there that beats those points into the ground, so I’m not going to spend time talking about body language. A guy will make the time for a girl he’s interested in.
It can be hard to sink in that Mr or Mrs Perfect that you have been dating is actually a sociopath. You come up with a list of traits from the DSM about sociopaths, and you question is he/she really a sociopath?
You read the list, and still you are not sure, after all he/she was just so ‘nice’.
Now, a guy might talk about how another girl is hot randomly, and sometimes that can be innocent. But don’t assume he’s not interested based on something like him not texting you back immediately. They get all wound up because some guy totally swept them off their feet. The problem is this particular guy flirts with every girl. In fact, I used to have a habit of calling girls pet names like sweetheart, “hun,” and stuff like that. He doesn’t talk about feelings, doesn’t say “I love you,” or says he’s “not sure what he feels” (a.k.a.
However, if you notice that he not only talks about other girls, but talks about liking a girl on more than just a physical level, or wanting to date her, then that’s a very clear sign he’s not interested in you. Guys and their texting habits can be tricky, and you can’t use that to assess his level of interest. He got her number, they had a charming conversation, she texts him and… I thought it was affectionate and nice, but I meant it in a platonic way. I know what I feel and you would not respond well if I told you).
If he has ample opportunity to talk to you and never acts on it, that’s a sign he’s not interested. Negative body language cues include: avoiding eye contact, positioning his body away from you, not engaging in the conversation (non-verbal signs of this are him not smiling while talking to you, or not nodding and showing active interest in what you’re saying), maintaining distance from you, looking around the room while talking to you… I didn’t realize it, but I ended up leading girls on and they took it to mean I was into them and started crushing back on me. This is more in the realm of relationship problem advice, but I figure it’s worth mentioning here.
On that same note, if you talk to him and he always finds a way to stop talking to you, or always lets the conversation fizzle out and die, then it’s very likely a sign he doesn’t like you in a romantic sense. It’s usually pretty obvious when someone isn’t focused on you. He sets up dates last minute, he keeps rescheduling, he flakes constantly on you – if any of this sounds familiar, he’s not that into you (as they say). When a guy is interested in a girl, there’s always a slight difference in the way he interacts with her. He’ll have some special way of talking to her, or extend some special kind of attention to her that he doesn’t generally extend. I honestly wasn’t talking to them this way to be flirtatious, but it came off that way. If you’re dating, or “seeing,” a guy and it’s been going on for several months, the common warning sign that he’s not really invested is if he doesn’t share his true feelings with you.
Let’s go through the checklist of ten ways to tell a guy is not into you: 1. This is the biggest sign of whether or not a guy is into you. It’s the fact that one way or another, they always just seem to be acting that way around her. He’ll always just seem to end up in the same parts of the room as you.
Stand-offish isn’t exactly a promising sign, but who knows? But if they’re into her, it’s not a matter of how they’re acting.
