It’s obvious when someone is interested in you. It doesn’t matter if they convey their feelings verbally or by their behaviors, but when those feelings aren’t present, it’s a little more difficult to tell. So here are four indicators that they aren’t very into you, and you should probably exit those DMs and close the door behind you.
1. No response or a delayed response
If they don’t generally respond to your messages or take days to do so, they’re probably not that interested. Someone who likes you will want to chat to you, and may even be delighted to do so. Of course, everyone has a hectic schedule and commitments, but typing and sending a text just takes a minute. Someone following you isn’t going to mind if you take a minute or two. Make no excuses or justifications for someone who habitually puts you on the back burner; simply move onward.
2. Your energy isn’t matched
If the person finally responds to your messages, but their enthusiasm level does not match yours, it could suggest disinterest. Although some emotions are more difficult to detect through writing, there are still hints that can help you determine whether or not someone is interested. If they don’t ask any questions to get to know you, if they don’t appear passionate or fully engaged in the conversation, or if their responses are brief and aloof, these are three major red flags indicating they aren’t that into you.
