When we like someone, we have butterflies and get all excited, wanting to be around them all the time. But that’s the problem. Now, you shouldn’t suppress your emotions, but there are some things you need to be aware of that make you look overeager, clingy, and desperate.
1 He takes forever to reply. Honestly, babies can text faster than this guy. Girls, it’s really quite simple. If he texts you within a couple of hours *maybe he can’t text at work* and the texts are engaging then it shows he’s interested in talking to you. But if it takes him an entire day to reply to one text and his message has nothing of value in it, stop texting him. [Read: 12 common texting habits that push guys away
2 He doesn’t take the conversation anywhere. The conversation is basically him replying to you going on and on and on about whatever it is. It’s actually not a conversation, it’s just him letting you breathe for a moment before you keep the conversation alive. Listen, there was never a conversation to begin with.

3 You always text him first. You never receive a morning text from him first. It’s always you sending him the first text when you want to talk to him. If he was into you, he would be texting you first. Not necessarily all the time, but there would be a healthy back-and-forth relationship going on. But there’s not.
4 He doesn’t ask you out. You have been texting with him for days, weeks, even months, but he never asks to hang out with you. Strange, no? It is strange. And that’s either because he’s simply talking to you to keep you as an option in case one of his other girls don’t work out or he’s really not interested in you. Either way, it’s a shitty deal for you. You need to pull out.
5 He only texts you when he’s drunk. Maybe he does text you, but it seems to be only when he’s really drunk. Now, you may interpret this as he likes you but he’s hiding his emotions. No, that’s not the reason. He’s texting you when he’s drunk because he knows you’ll hook up with him, and you’re easier than meeting someone new.
