This signal is a little more difficult to discern but if you take a few minutes to step back and look at the timeline of your “relationship” with this girl, it might be easier to see. It happened to me a couple of years ago. I met a girl named Trina one night. We became MySpace friends. Ok, it was like 7 years ago when MySpace was… cool? We were supposed to go jogging together but a family emergency sent me out of town to St. Augustine, Florida. Upon returning to Nashville, we made plans to jog but again, circumstances got in the way. It happened a third time so I knew something was up.
Now I know this doesn’t mean she’s not into you. It’s a sign she can’t be into you. For whatever reason, the relationship you’re hoping for is simply not meant to be. Sometimes it’s worth pursuing, but as I’ve been told time and time again, “In the beginning, it should be easy.” If you’re starting out fighting the odds, you should just stop. But hey, this isn’t about dating advice so do whatever you want. And consequently if you’re reading this, Trina from Brentwood, I’m still single.
