  • She will not confirm plans very far in advance. Gives vague answers when you ask about how she has been spending her time. Doesn't introduce you to many of her friends.

    • Well she invites me to plans far in advance, although I wasn't able to confirm, but I made sure to let her know this and she was perfectly fine with that, but closer to the date when I did try to confirm on the day I said I would she flaked. She's never really been vague about how she spends her time... although I mean it doesn't mean what she's saying is necessarily the truth either.

      We met through her friends, and they insisted I add them to social media and invite them out.

    • Some people think nothing of making a plan and backing out at the last minute because something better came along. If that is the situation, maybe you are not Plan B, but it appears that you are also not a high priority to her.

    • Okay, figured that might be the case. Just kind of annoying because whenever I ignore her she goes out of her way to get my attention. If I don't chase her up on her vague plans she starts chasing me really hard and pleading with me to go to one of her events.

      When we first met and she saw me talking to other girls (even taken ones) she would constantly try and jump in the conversation and grab my attention or would never not be in the room we were in.

  • As wise as I am her, dear, if she is Talking or even Texting Today and Tomorrow you are Not hearing Anything, she may be looking and lurking somewhere else and then Suddenly... One day out of the clear blue come find You. It also can Happen when if you both are Dating and mating.
    If she has a full circle problem pattern of Doing this and Screwing you with This, then you are what I call a "Back pocket boyfriend."
    Good luck. xx

    • Okay so I asked her out to an event she had asked me out to, but I couldn't make it so I had to reschedule. She then didn't get back to me in time/gave a wishy-washy answer and I ended up having plans. She apologized and gave a counter offer almost immediately, but then when I tried to finalize the plans with her she flaked but this time didn't give me an alternate time or an apology but seemed genuinely upset she couldn't make it.

  • when she isn't pay attention to you!

    • Well she pays attention, at first it was one to one as far as attention give take, then she would pull back and when I didn't chase she would come back. Could be a day could be a week, but would always come back and then the cycle would repeat.

    • sounds to me like you need to have a chat!

  • You're in the friendzone but she flirts with you constantly.

    • Not in her friend zone, admits she likes me, asks me out, but didn't follow through

    • Unless there's another guy in the picture, you could ask her out. If you have trouble finding time suitable for both of you, the holidays are coming up. A backup happens only when the girl is pining for someone else, I don't think that's the case here.

  • She says" thanks but maybe later" when you ask her out.

  • Please tell me you're not the same guy who uses girls because "they should have been with me first!"

    If she got broken up with and jumped to you straight away you would be a rebound. But that's about all.

    • No not at all, I just have a situation where a girl is being non-committal with me despite the fact she's the one who said she wanted to date and asked me out but then bailed... so I assumed she wasn't interested and started talking to other girls. She found out so she pursued me heavily again, and started being really involved again, even asked me out again, then she flaked.

      So I am trying to figure out if she's just keeping me around for attention/a back burner option.

    • In my experience that's never worked, because they can just play dumb and then they'll throw a negative label on you.

    • Not always. Best to just try it out. Ask her what she wants. There's nothing wrong with asking for clarity. But I wouldn't ask her if you're a back up or something.

  • She ignores you, you aren't one of her priorities, she cancels dates at the last minute, she only has time for you when she feels like it, she tells you she doesn't know what she wants, etc... as a guy who went through all this, just forget about it bro. you aren't a backup plan, you can be someones first choice if your not holding on to some dumbass bitch who ends up being a single mom.

    • Okay, so she made plans two weeks in advance but then couldn't follow through but didn't give an alternate? My comments apple24 and OlderAndWiser might help in understanding this.

  • Simple, you'll feel like that's what's going on if you're honest with yourself about it.
