7 "Confusing" Guy Habits That Are Actually Easy to Interpret ...

Men aren't as confusing as we think they are. Even though they constantly send us mixed signals, you can determine how your crush feels about you by analyzing exactly what he does. Here are some of the most "confusing" guy habits that are actually easy to interpret:

He Stares without Asking You out

If a guy with a girlfriend stares at you, then you shouldn't spend hours obsessing over what it could possibly mean. You don't want to get involved with another girl's boyfriend, and chances are that the guy staring isn't even interested in dating you. Men love to look at pretty things, which means that he finds you attractive. Of course, just because you're gorgeous doesn't mean that he wants to be in a relationship with you. Unless he breaks up with his girlfriend for you, those stares don't mean as much as you'd hope.


When it comes to understanding men, it can be difficult to decipher their intentions and feelings. While some men are very vocal and clear about their intentions, others can be more mysterious. One confusing habit of men is when they stare without asking you out.

Staring is a common behavior among men, and it can mean different things depending on the context. It could be a sign of admiration, or it could be a sign of curiosity. It could also be a sign that the man is interested in you and is trying to figure out how to approach you.

However, if the man in question has a girlfriend, then it is more likely that he is simply admiring you from afar. Men love to look at attractive people, and this is especially true when they are already in a relationship. Men may be drawn to you, but they don't necessarily want to pursue a relationship with you. Unless the man breaks up with his girlfriend for you, then those stares don't mean anything more than admiration.


He Doesn't Call when He Says

Why do men claim that they'll call you? Because they think that it's what you want to hear, and they want to make you happy. Of course, later on it will completely slip their mind, because talking isn't as important to him as it is to you. So if a guy claims he's going to call, he's probably just saying it to keep you happy until he walks away to talk to another girl.


He Refuses to Commit

He'll kiss you, but he won't date you. He'll sleep with you, but he won't meet your parents. Why? The answer is obvious. He wants all of the benefits of being your boyfriend with none of the negatives. He wants to be free to date other women and go out without consulting you, but he still wants a warm body to hold. He's just being selfish.


He Teases You

Some men tease the women they like. Why? Because they consider it a form of flirting that can't end in embarrassment. If he teases you about your haircut, and you tell him you have no interest in him, he can claim that he was being serious and clearly has no interest in you either. It's an easy way to cover up his feelings.


He Won't Express Emotion

When it comes to men, actions speak louder than words. If he does everything he can for you, but refuses to admit he likes you, then it's because he's used to hiding his feelings. Men aren't encouraged to express their emotions in the same way women are, so even if he won't come out and say those three little words, he might still feel them.

Famous Quotes

To give oneself earnestly to the duties due to men, and, while respecting spiritual beings, to keep aloof from them, may be called wisdom.


He Always Texts You

If he sends you good morning and good night texts every day of the week, he likes you. If he won't reply to your messages, even after you've sent three in a row and have waited three days, then he's not interested in you. His texting habits can tell you a lot about his feelings for you.


He Sends Mixed Signals

If he flirts with you one day, and then ignores you the next, he's not sure if he wants to be with you or not. There are so many opinions out there and he doesn't want to make the wrong choice. You can either ask him out in order to convince him to choose you, or just wait until he finally makes up his mind. Whatever you choose to do, don't waste your time trying to figure him out, because he doesn't even know what he wants.

The confusing things men do are actually pretty simple to understand once you look at your situation logically. What's the most confusing thing your crush has ever done?

Men are more simple creatures than us. Its just that we are on a higher plane than they are. Their way of thinking is so simple that we tend to perceive it as complicated.

ughh im giving up on my crush. he has all these traits and im too much of a gemini to wait around.. i hate feeling anxious over something thats never going to happen :(

the night my husband and I met, he asked me for my number and from that night on he texted me good morning and good night every single day and then he'd also txt me if he had some time during the day like a break at work! :) 3 yrs later and we're married :)

im a guy, don't ask how i got here, but i've got to be honest, most of this is bs, but she does make some true points, like we tease bc its easier than flirting most of the time but pretty much everything else is a girl trying to dissect a guys mind

Thank you! This helped a lot!

Then Farrah he doesn't deserve you and you don't deserve that kind of treatment

As annoying as it is. I've got to let this one go. He has most of these traits and I'm just kidding myself.

Totally agreed with this one! My crush used to be so close to me at one point constant texting and asking how I was etc but never asked the most important question about dating. Everyone else who knew us thought we were dating and always referred to me as being his bird. He knows that I like him too but still hasn't done anything. But now he's just distance himself from me and talks to me now and then but nowhere near as much as he did before. Hmm...thinking about cutting my losses and moving on as if he clearly knew my worth he would make a space for me in his life I wouldn't have to fight for one!

Okay so there is this guy that I really like and he has teased me nonstop for about a year now and I was was told by multiple people that he was gonna ask me out but I was stupid enough not to go over to him when his friend tried to get me over there but at the time I didn't know that he was there😭

This guy I really like started leaving to talk to another girls and I know it shouldn't bother me but it does. What should I do?
