7 Signs to Figure out if He is Picking on Me or Flirting with Me? ...


Is he picking on me or flirting with me is not a silly question.

The language of love can often be a mystery, and if an object of your affection starts sending out mixed signals it can be very confusing.

When he makes jokey comments or asides to his friends, is he poking fun or hiding his embarrassment at how he really feels?

Is he too afraid to admit how he feels, so he is covering up with teasing and put downs?2

Does he make fun of you but wear a smile while doing so?

If he makes disparaging remarks about the way you dress or style your hair, what does it all mean?

Is he picking on me or flirting with me isn’t the easiest question to answer but here’s a few tips and clues.

1. If You Were a Guy then Would He Have Said These Things?

Many, many men are terrible at flirting but they sometimes discover that if they are jerks to women, they get more attention than if they are sweet (and smarmy).

Is he picking on me or flirting with me?

It’s possible that he's flirting, and it’s possible that he is not very good at it.

Ask yourself if he would say the things he is saying to another guy.

If that is the case then he may simply be a jerk and you should probably avoid him before he steps on your feelings and ego.

Don’t ever forget that you are the one choosing to allow a man be in your presence (at least in dating terms anyway).

Is He Paying You More Attention than He Should Be?

If he like, laughs with his friends when you walk by, is he making fun of you or could it mean something deeper? Idk if I'm looking to much into it but it happens all the time😔

I love his " ugh, i know you so well" stare at me then he rolls his eyes, shakes his head and finally, smile at me. I just melt everytime 😍
I had a stalker at work. He was always there, but did not say anything to me. This was not even picking, but bullying, since it lasted too long. I ignored him, since I did not want to make a fool if myself. I recently changed jobs, so I probably will not meet him ever again, but sometimes I still wonder why he behaved like this. Maybe he is just a basket case. 😝

Kudos! Good article think I have experienced them all! Lol!
At the start of our relationship my boyfriend was pretty insecure and he'd make fun of me I didn't like it so we had a long talk about it and he started to not pick on me so much but it wasn't till later when it got really annoying. He would be kidding but it still hurt and again we talked about it. Sometimes guys don't realize how much their words hurt even when they're kidding. They're not that smart. So if your man just keeps picking on you or the guy you're seeing tell them how you feel and ask them why they do it. If he's not willing to listen to you then he isn't worth it.
