Mixed Messages

Learning the ins and outs of how guys mess with your head is difficult, especially when they are sending mixed messages! If your guy is sending mixed messages, it could absolutely be one of the ways that he is messing with your head. It could be a sign that maybe he doesn't like you as much as you think. Ask him about it and if you feel like he is messing with your head, talk to him about it!


It's no secret that guys can be hard to read, and when they start sending mixed messages, it can be even more confusing. Mixed messages can come in many forms, from ignoring you one day and then being overly attentive the next, to sending you mixed signals about their feelings. It can be hard to tell if they are messing with your head or if they really don't know what they want.

When it comes to mixed messages, it's important to remember that it's not always intentional. Sometimes guys don't even realize they are sending mixed signals. It could be a sign that they are unsure of their feelings or are afraid to express them. It could also mean that they are trying to protect themselves from getting hurt.

If your guy is sending mixed messages, it's best to talk to him about it. Ask him what he is feeling and why he is sending mixed signals. It's also important to remember that it's ok to walk away if the situation isn't healthy for you. No one deserves to be in a relationship where they are constantly being manipulated and confused.



While guys say that girls are big manipulators, they can manipulate with the best of them too! If your guy is constantly manipulating you, it could be one of the ways that he is messing with your head. You need to stop him dead in his tracks if you have a feeling that he is manipulating you.


Manipulation is a common form of emotional abuse, and it can be incredibly damaging to a relationship. It can be hard to spot, as it often takes the form of subtle comments or behaviors that undermine your self-confidence or make you doubt yourself. It’s important to be aware of this kind of behavior and to take steps to protect yourself.

Manipulative behavior often involves making you feel guilty or ashamed for things that you have no control over. A manipulative partner might use guilt-tripping to make you do things that they want, or to make you feel bad for expressing your own thoughts and feelings. They might also make subtle comments to make you feel like you’re not good enough or that you’re not living up to their expectations.

Manipulative behavior can also involve gaslighting, which is when your partner tries to make you question your own reality and memory. They might deny that something happened or make you feel like you’re imagining things, which can be incredibly damaging to your self-confidence and mental health.


Ignoring You

A lot of the time, a guy can ignore you for hours and hours and then, when he needs you, you instantly have all of his attention. This is another form of messing with your head! If your guy is ignoring you until he needs you, ignore him right back! This will drive him nuts and mess with his head.


Being treated like a convenience rather than a priority can leave you feeling undervalued and frustrated. It's essential to establish boundaries and make it clear that your attention is not on standby, just waiting to be called upon. If he's only all-in when it suits him, it's a red flag. Don't let this slide. Stand your ground and let him know that a genuine relationship is a two-way street, involving consistent communication and mutual respect. Remember, you deserve someone who is attentive and considers your feelingsnot just when it's convenient for them.



Another way a guy can mess with your head is to friend-zone you, so that he can actually date your BFF or so that he can flirt endlessly with all of your friends. If you have a crush and you are seeing that your crush is constantly friend-zoning you just so he can flirt with some other people, you deserve better.


Using Your Emotions

How about your emotions? Does the guy you like constantly prey on your emotions? This is another sign that he is just messing with your head, girls. Did you tell him that you like him and now he is using that against you? Does he constantly say things like 'if you really liked me, you'd do this'? These are all signs that he is just messing with you!

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.



Guys are notorious for this, girls. Firstly, you aren't stupid and nobody should ever, ever make you feel stupid. This means that if a guy is constantly patronizing you, you need to make sure that you put him right back in his place.


Putting You down

Finally girls, the last sign that he is messing with your head is constantly putting you down. Does he call you names? Does he constantly tell you that you are worthless? This is not only putting you down, but it's actually emotionally abusing you. Nobody should ever be allowed to do that to you, girls!

While girls can mess with a guy's head too, guys are known for it. If you are feeling like you are being messed with, maybe you should take a look at my tips! Have you ever been messed with?

@emogothia corie is right u should confront your guy sweetie xx :)

How to we dislike something we"ve liked before ?

well its like weve been dating for like some weeks now only a few ppl know about us...whicj is his freinds and some of mine he says he dosent want everybody in our bussiness thsts why he dosent want alot of ppl knowing he has a rep. Of flirting with alot of ppl but out of all of them he only went out with me but is thst an excuse for him to only connect to me on facebook?

I even had something similar to @Olivia's but it was my 18th birthday at our homecoming dance and I saw him cheat on me. The minute any guy makes you feel inferior, walk away!!! Do not make excuses for him, if he does it once, he'll do it again!! I've had 3 ex-bfs and a few guys i only went on a few dates with message me months after things ended to "apologize" for being jerks, in the past I forgave them but it is a jerk tactic.

I've been dating a guy for almost 2 months and he has no problem with anything that ur experiencing. I would tell him that if he's not willing to show u off then he's not worth ur time.

Ok I need help ASAP!!! I'm going insane trying to figure this guy out!! Ok so we met this school year as he's in an academy with me. So I recently started liking him and I can't stop thinking about him..... He's a fun guy and he interacts with everyone. However sometimes I feel like he's a big flirt. I don't know if he likes me but whenever I ask for money he usually will let me borrow it (I pay him back) and he TEASES me to no end. I don't know if it's just teasing or flirting. So we were helping in this community services thing over the weekend and it was the funnest thing ever to be around him. We play fought a lot and he just makes me laugh all the time. I tripped on a toy at the community service and as I was about to fall he caught my wrist( you might think well he was obviously helping you but there was a guy right in front of me and that guys didn't help) and then he pulled me closer and said "I caught you" I know it sounds cliché but it happened and that just made me more confused. He even complimented me by telling me I was smart and he helped me carry/push heavy objects as well. He teases other people sometimes too though so it confuses me. I flirt back though and when he caught me we were just staring at eachother. Today we helped again and this time we were passing out stuff for the needy and we got on the truck he was sat next to me and he would lean into me and say I'm tired or something. And he's always like you want to play fight? And then he starts lightly touching me. Before we say down on the truck though we were standing and I said I would push him so I did and he pushed back and I was about to trip but he caught me and I hugged his wait he hugged mine. And he always teased me about pushing me off and he laughed about it though. I don't know what to think please help!!

hi im going out with this guy for 2 months n he doesnt want anyone to know that knows coz he doesnt want ppl to talk about us nhe flirts with a lot of people in my face n he tells me i love u and stuff n he wants to be with be n doesnt want to lose me n he wants to do sexaul stuff with me

@j girls can be introverted and guys can be extroverted too. Its not like all women are social. Im an introvert, i like to work alone and do tasks independentl and my boyfriend is an extrovert who likes to work in groups. It all depends on your personality type. Commonly, it would be that way but my boyfriend and i are quite opposite to your statement haha

this paragraph is my life. :(
