A lot of girls don't want to feel vulnerable. Once a guy knows she likes him, she's setting herself up for possibly humiliation or heartache if he doesn't reciprocate. The vulnerability usually stems from low self esteem. She's not sure if she's good enough for you. She doesn't want to take the chance in CONFIRMING (in her eyes) that she's not good enough for you. She'd rather maintain the hope that there's a possibility you could feel the same.
If you know that she feels this way toward you, maybe give her a little extra attention. Look her in the eyes and smile, it'll validate her as a person. Ask her opinion, it'll tell her you're interested in what she has to say. If little things like this don't get it out of her, ask her to coffee, or ask her if you'll see her at some event going on. Ease into things and she'll gain not only self confidence, but if your relationship develops into anything, she'll have more confidence in your relationship, knowing it has a solid foundation.
it depends on the type of girl it is.. we all have different reasons..
some girls are just shy, others are afraid to let the guy know, some are embarassed,i even know some girls who don't want to let people know they like a guy because their friend does or because (this sounds shallow) but because he may not have the highest social standing. all girls are different.. some even don't pretend not to at all. some girls do let guys know x] just depends who you're dealing with
The same reason some guys do...most people are afraid of rejection...in some girls' minds if they act interested in you, but then they pull back, and if you're still pursuing them, in their minds they'll know for sure that you like them. Other girls (manipulative girls) like to see how many guys they can get to boost their egos...horrible I know. Another thing is a lot of girls don't do these things...I, for example, will act interested as long as you don't dissuade me. If I like you I will most definitely go after you.
sometimes girls don't want to put their dignity down and show interest in a man unless he does first. or it could be because they crave attention and you know usually when you don't show interest in a person they'll chase after you and if you do show interest they won't chase after you ..thats how things are unfortunetly ..so I would say first show her you are interested then if she doesn't show anything back then back off.. if she is interested in you ..she'll probably message because she's wondering why you changed
Girls play games with guys like you. If I were you I would take this girl in your arms and kiss her nice and long and then walk away. Pretend like your not interested in her play her games. If she likes you she is not gonna go anywhere
Girls are complicated creatures, so don't even make any attempts of understanding us. It's just the way it is. :) With your question, it's just that sometimes, we want to see some effort with you guys. Most especially if the feelings mutual. And if it's not, we're just so caught up with the possible effect of rejection towards us. We're girls, our emotions can accumulate us. We can't handle rejection as just an ordinary embarrassment.
Hahahaha I do this 2 guys all the time..idk some girls are like that..I kno I do it because I don't want 2 make it seem like I'm pressed and 2 try 2 cover up my feelings and be mean because I'm so used 2 them being crushed down. Sit her down and tell her, but you need to be very serious and up front..no playin around..if she truly is interested then she shud stop it.. If not keep it movin
I don't act interested if the guy I like isn't acting interested.Might do a little subtle flirting,but other than that,then I won't act interested.Truthfully,I'm afraid of rejection,so that's why I do it(:
This is probably how other girls think too.But there's still a good number of us that'll show interest first.Hope this helped:D
They do it because they don't know what your intentions are. I usually don't show interest because I'm just not interested...either that, or I think that if I show interest the guy will try to take advantage of that.
they don't know if you like them, they are having problems with confidence in themselves, they want to seem mysterious to you and give you a chase even though it never works, or they are just not that into you- take your pick
I'd like to know what percentage of girls actually play these games?
Pure ego, been there done that. In all honesty, give up because if she liked you she wouldn't ignore you. As much as you don't want to hear it that's what it is & nothing else. I went through the same thing so I just deleted anything to do with her and put it behind me. Or you can keep chasing her, up to you but don't put too much into it or turn down some other girl if you get the chance.
the more interested you are the less attractive you become, you have less power in the relationship, the person who has less interest has more power in the relationship
They don't want to be to easy, don't want to put themselves out there, don't like rejection,
