2. Awkward Contact
Do you often feel like he is stiff and kind of awkward every time you go in for a hug? Or that he doesn’t respond in the way that you might think he would when you do something like pat his arm? Just think about the way you feel when a guy is giving you unwanted attention, it’s pretty much identical! Not embracing a lingering hug is a clear sign that you have been put in the friend zone.
