How to Tell If You Should Break Up

5 Signs You Don't Really Like Him

Knowing whether or not you like a guy should be easy enough, but all too often I hear friends arguing a case, mostly to themselves, for why they keep seeing someone. There may be something to say for giving a guy a chance, but the longer you stay, the harder it is to leave. Here are five signs to save you from the lukewarm romance of Mr. Good Enough.

  1. "He's really nice": If you find yourself rationalizing that he's a nice guy, a good guy who you should give a chance, then be friends. Maybe he'll grow on you?
  2. He's perfect on paper: Throw the paper away, and accept that he who is perfect on paper is almost never perfect in real life — and vice versa!
  3. You forget to respond: Whether it's his email, text, IM, or call, if something else is so interesting that you forget about him, then you might as well forget him now.
  4. You like his friends better than him: If you'd rather hang out with him and his friends than with him alone (or you're using them to gain access to something), then you might be in it for the wrong reasons. Or the right!
  5. He always calls you: Unless you're playing a game, the making and breaking of plans should be fairly even.

Do you have any signs to add?

Agree w/ Jazzytummy...certain things are annoying that otherwise wouldn't be! Also, you never find yourself daydreaming about him/her.

Ah. Also very much applies to friends.

Another dead giveaway...little personality quirks that you find adorable in a guy that you are crazy are magnified and irritate you to death with the wrong guy.

6. You don't take him home to meet your family/friends/close allies 7. You don't give him a moniker (e.g. boyfriend, significant other). You always label him "my friend".

"He's really nice" / I think nice guys are a turn on. I haven't known a lot of them.

No. I love this man. But my ex all those signs were there.
