The dating game is tough, to say the least. Let’s face it – meeting loads of people and hoping that one of them might be your soul mate, can feel like mission impossible. When you find someone who you like, though, everything changes for the better. “This is it,” you think to yourself, hoping that you might have found the one. But, what if that person is not as into you as you think? Here are some signs that you are wasting your time.


#1 You haven’t met their friends

If you have been dating for more than a couple of months, they should want you to meet their friends. If they have any interest in a future with you, surely they will want you to be a part of their life. If they are keeping their friends separate from you, it probably means that they haven’t told them about you.

#2 They have never said the ‘G’ or the ‘B’ word

This sign is a serious one, and you shouldn’t kid yourself into thinking that it doesn’t matter. If the person you are dating, has never called you their girlfriend or boyfriend, they don’t see you in that way. It doesn’t matter how long you spend together or how many ‘cute’ little moments you think you have – you need a definitive answer. It might be difficult to ask someone outright whether they see you are their partner, but you need to do it.

#3 You are always the one calling them

When was the last time that they called you? If you are always calling them and making arrangements, it means that you are putting 100% into this relationship. If they are giving you 0% of their attention, you need to move on fast. Dating is a two-way street. You should not have to call them all the time to make plans. Occasionally, it might be nice if they called you.

#4 They avoid social media (like the plague)

Like it or hate it, social media is a massive part of everybody’s lives these days. If you have been dating someone for a while and they still haven’t added you on their networks, something is up. Could they be trying to hide the fact that they are seeing someone else? It might be painful to think about, but not everyone is honest when it comes to relationships.

#5 They don’t listen to you when you talk

Communication is the foundation of any relationship. If you watch this YouTube video, it explains that the reason many couples break up is because they lack communication. If you feel as though you are giving this person all you’ve got, but they barely pay attention to what you do or say, you need to cut them loose. Think about it – when you talk to one another, who usually asks the questions? If you are always asking about how the other person is, does that mean that all you ever talk about is how they feel? What about you?

#6 They always want space

In the early stages of a relationship, everything is new and exciting. At this point, it should feel as though you can’t get enough of one another. If the person you are dating wants space already, they are not into you at all. Do yourself a favor and get rid of them before they waste any more of your precious time. Don’t waste your life dating someone who doesn’t care about you. If they think that you will do for now, but you think that they are the one, you are heading towards a heartbreak.
