How to Tell if a Guy Doesn't Like You

Guys often give very specific signs that they aren't interested. Men aren't always the best verbal communicators, but if you can pick up on some of the other signs that they are sharing, you'll be much better off.

There are many signs of attraction that men and women show when they have an interest in one another. By looking and thoroughly observing the body language and the general behavior of the person, you can make a conclusion on whether or not he or she has an interest in you.

In this article I will describe in detail the many signs that guys show when they don’t like a girl. You might be interested in this guy, but how sure are you he has the same feelings for you? This seems a hard question to answer for many women, and it doesn't need to be. You can observe the behavior of the guy you like and determine for yourself if he has feelings for you.
