Why Do Guys Keep Texting If They’re Not Interested?

Why do some men keep texting you when they don’t like you?

It’s a big mystery that, and that’s why we’re trying to come up with an explanation.

Let’s see all the reasons why they keep texting you.

Some men suddenly disappear, which is annoying, but at least you know they’re gone.

Others keep texting you, but you feel like things aren’t going anywhere and you’re pretty sure they don’t like you.

So why do they keep texting?

They Think They’re Educated

Some men get it into their heads that it’s impolite to tell a woman they don’t want to date her.

They are afraid of hurting your feelings.

While they understand that the time must come when they will tell her that they have no feelings for her, they are dragging their feet with it.

Sometimes they’ll wait for you to stop texting – maybe if they’re evasive enough, you’ll take the hint and stop texting without them having to say something hurtful like they don’t want to see you.

You might think it would be nicer if they told you what it’s like, but some men just feel so bad doing it that it makes it harder for them.

Some also really hope that if they are evasive, you will lose interest and you will both be happy.

They Are Clueless

Rather than being afraid of hurting you, they just can’t handle confrontations of any kind or the kind that involves a woman.

In short, they are clueless.

They Don’t Know How To End Things

Some men have absolutely no experience breaking up with a woman.

Perhaps the woman before you left; maybe they had longer relationships but didn’t date much so they never had to break things up.

Whatever the reason, they don’t know how to do it because they’ve never done it before.

And instead of just doing it one way or another, they avoid it as they are not sure how to do it.

They Want To Be Friends

Some men don’t want to date you, but they want to be your friends.

They already see her as a good friend or a potential friend, so they keep texting, although they avoid flirting.

They Just Want To Flirt

Some men love to flirt via text, even if they have no intention of going beyond that.

Or maybe they’re interested in an adventure, but not seriously interested in anything else.

They find flirting with you; fun and want to keep doing it – that’s why they keep texting you.

This could be because they are the type of guy who likes to have a crowd of women around them, they just adore female attention and women in general or they get so little attention that whatever attention they get they want to keep.

The latter is quite rare; he’s probably just a womanizer and, in his own way, adores you and the rest of the female population, even if he’s not interested in a relationship.

He is warm and wants to keep things warm.

He’s Not Sure

Maybe this guy doesn’t like you, but he’s still not sure.

He might still be harboring feelings for his ex, or he might feel like he’s in a position where maybe he shouldn’t have a girlfriend (he’s about to leave town for another job, or college, or he’s too busy at the moment or going through a difficult time).

That means he has a certain level of interest, but he doesn’t feel quite right going forward.

He doesn’t want to give up, but he doesn’t want to get too involved either.

They Want A Backup

He’s not into you right now as he’s flirting with someone else he met first, BUT he’d like a backup if things don’t work out with the other woman.

Maybe he’s not sure about the first one, but he wants to explore it before proceeding with you.

Some men don’t like to be alone either; it’s as if they need a black book as thick as the yellow pages to make sure they always have someone to turn to.

It sounds cruel, but they might not even think about it, as they never wanted anything serious.

They think it’s perfectly clear they’re just flirting.

There are a plethora of reasons why a man might keep texting you, even if he’s not into you.

However, it is not always the reason that matters most, but whether he is interested or not.

Women sometimes stand still and analyze things.

Instead, try setting up a date to find out.

After a while, you’ll need to have “the conversation” anyway.

Fortunately, things flow so that you feel like you really know he’s into you, but if they don’t like you, you need to ask sooner or later.

And remember not to make assumptions: one thing I’ve learned is that things aren’t always what they seem.

Some men are also much better at flirting and seem much more interested in you than those who are, even if they are the most interested.

If in doubt, ask in a friendly manner or find your answers
