I was browsing some articles on love (because I read up on this stuff) and found one called "There Is No Gray Area: He Is Either Obsessed With You Or He DGAF." I was a little dumbfounded, because that's... kind of an insane thing to say. Here's an excerpt:
"Guys are never playing hard-to-get or being aloof to get you interested. He isn’t ghosting you because he’s coy; he’s ghosting you because he doesn’t want to deal with telling you he’s over it. But trust me, he’s over it.
This sucks to hear. It blows. I know that. There have been plenty of times in my sordid past when I have convinced myself that a guy is going to come around, stop treating me like second-class garbage and be a good boyfriend...
What you may perceive as some kind of game, some variety of mixed signals, is not what you think it is. Those confusing signals are actually the CLEAREST signal of all: he’s not that into you. He doesn’t care. He doesn’t. He does not.
If he’s not calling you his girlfriend, it’s because he doesn’t want you to be his girlfriend. If he’s not committing, it’s because he doesn’t see you as worthy of a commitment. If he’s distant, it’s because he doesn’t care enough."
Is this a real thing?!? I'd love to hear what you guys think.
You can read it in full here if you want to, but I think you probably can get the picture from the above chunk.
I mean, seriously??? Guys NEVER send any sort of mixed signal?!
