Forget about how nice or flirty he may be in response to you — this is what trips a lot of women up. Another part of this is he may not take opportunities to talk to you when they’re presented to him.
Instead, ask yourself how often he actually reaches out to you. For example, you see him at a party or somewhere of the sort and he doesn’t come up to you. Again, don’t focus on how he behaves during the interaction, he may just be a polite, friendly guy.
This is a major point of confusion (and it’s one of the main reasons I was so confused by the guy I told you about at the beginning of the article).
So you meet a guy and you feel overcome by the electric chemistry.
The differences can be subtle, but they will still be there. When you like someone, you want them to like you back, so you present yourself in the best possible light. A sign of a healthy relationship is that you can relax and just be yourself, but in the beginning, this isn’t always necessarily true.
