Whether you love or hate the hype of Valentine’s Day, there’s no denying that it gets everyone talking about all things luv ‘n’ relationships. And when everyone is talking about it, you can’t help but start thinking about it yourself. And if you’re single, then it probably becomes even more of a burden on your mind (whether you want it to or not!) 

While you’re left to contemplate all the intricacies of your love-life in a span of one-week, you’re probably asking yourself, “Why am I single, anyway? I’m smart, sweet, and fabulous!” What’s keeping the great men around from stepping up and making a move? Well, we’re here to fill you in on some reasons why a guy may not be pursuing you. 

5. He’s scared

Yes, guys can be just as insecure as the rest of us. You may be completely unaware of his own fears when it comes to pursuing a relationship—whether its fear of being rejected, having his heart broken, or even failure altogether. To make a move, it takes some confidence and courage, and some men may not be there yet. 

4. He’s not ready for a relationship (really)

We’ve witnessed this time and time again: a man and a woman spend time together, are great friends, and clearly, one party (the woman) has feelings for the other. The man, however, seems to take a step back. He may just not be ready for a relationship (right now). You may be exactly what he’s dreamed of, but that won’t matter one bit if he’s not in the right place. He may be focused on other things, like his career or even enjoying his friendships. Timing really matters for some guys, and that’s just something we have to accept and respect. Just remember, while he may not be ready now, you can always leave a little space in your heart for when he is ready, should you choose to accept him then.  

3. He’s just not that into you

So, maybe you’ve gone ahead and given some pretty explicit signs you’re interested. Still, no movement on his part. This is when you may have to consider that he just isn’t that into you. You may think this is terrible, but really, it’s better for you in the end. You want to be with someone who is as crazy about you as you are about them. And yes, that person exists. 

2. He’s working on himself

Oftentimes we get carried away with blaming ourselves for someone else’s lack of interest or pursuit in us. Sometimes, you’ll need to recognize that he if he hasn’t asked you out yet, it might just be because he’s actually working on himself. This is something to be applauded. If he’s not ready to pursue a relationship with you now, there’s good reason to believe it’s best that he didn’t! Take it as a sign and don’t wait around obsessing over his next move. This is the perfect chance for you to do some of your own reflecting to illuminate your own personal journey. What areas of your own life need some work or added focus? Where are some places you need to heal? What are your own goals in life? You can even talk to your KEEN Psychic  to work on the becoming the best version of you, too. 

1. He doesn’t know you’re into him 

How many times do guys have to tell us before we believe them: men can’t read our minds. We want them to really bad, but alas, they cannot. And because of this reason, your love-interest may have zero clue about your feelings for him. You may be putting out the vibe and his radar can be completely off. Want to help him figure it out? It’s time to show him how you feel. Don’t be scared to be bold and make a move yourself: start up a convo, set up some plans to hang out. Go ahead and help him out by showing a little love and see what happens. 

If you want deeper insight directly into what you’re experiencing, a gifted KEEN Psychic is exactly who you need to talk to. They’ll be able to give you information you’re looking for to steer you in the right direction.
