Do they mean someone's interested and too shy to express it or that they're just not interested?
The exact situation is this: I met this guy while going out with a group of friends. I thought he was cute and we got along well and he mostly talked to me, walked with me almost constantly although we didn't know each other at all beforehand. Whenever I said I was against something or I didn't like something, he'd side with me. For example, I freaked out when I saw a moth and while everyone started making fun of me for being such a girl, he said that he usually ends up being the moth killer in the group and that he's pretty good and if I didn't want to go into a certain place, he would sway the group to go somewhere else. However, throughout the night, he'd get randomly quiet and then go back to being talkative. He also hasn't added me on Facebook so far. :/ Sounds petty but I thought that would be a sign of disinterest right? I don't think I showed interest because I was too shy since we were in a group of people and I didn't want to be obvious about it but then again, he didn't either really - he didn't flirt with me or awkwardly ask me if I'm seeing anyone. I usually can pick up signals really well but with this one, I am so confused.
Vote A Interested but shy/discouraged/socially inept.
Mixed signals, could mean the person is just trying to play hard 2 get until they your feelings are confirmed or it's just their nature as an egotistical person. On the other hand I could be yeah just plain shy not sure how to act around that person, the best solution is to just confround the person and be like what is going on her , decode their body language or just leave it alone unless you really felt something there it's not worth it to deal with their confusion...
seems to me that YOU are the one giving mixed signals! your are so busy LOOKING for someone else s signals but you ain't sending any of yer own! if I were the guy I would be perplexed by now. you gave the poor guy nothing to work with. I wouldn't have added you to my Facebook either.
You haven't considered anything like C. He has a girlfriend? But no in all seriously, if a guy is interested - he'll make a move. If he was interested but didn't know how you felt/ thought you didn't like him - he'd have added you on Facebook and let you get to know him more so he change your mind. Perhaps he didn't feel he knew you well enough...but he didn't try and get to know you better. Sorry honey, however you didn't say how long ago you met him, if this was literally last night, he could still make a move - but I wouldn't hold my breath for someone who didn't flirt.
