MORE: Signs He Doesn’t Want to Be With You He might give you some excuse as to why he can’t get into a relationship, but the excuse isn’t the part that matters.

As I’ve said time and time again: When a man says he doesn’t want a relationship with you (for any reason), believe him! It makes me sad to see, but there are a lot of relationships I see where the guy is insecure and wants to make sure the woman likes him.

“Dropping the mask” is something I talk about extensively in the article link below…

He does all sorts of things to woo her and win her over, but simultaneously, he (for whatever reason) does not want to be in an exclusive relationship.

So as soon as the woman declares that she really likes him, she assumes it means that they’re headed towards a relationship.

For instance, if a guy says something like “I like you so much” or whatever during the early phases, he very well might mean it, but he also wants to see how you’ll react.

Specifically, he’s checking to see if you’ll say that you feel the same way.

At first, I thought he was just trying to end things, but then from time to time, he’ll text me something really sweet, like about how much he wants to see me, or that he’s been thinking about me, so obviously, he’s still interested or why would he do that?

Okay, I’m gonna let you in on something that very few women know.What if they’re not that into me and I end up making a fool of myself falling for someone when they don’t feel the same way? It may seem hard to believe, but in the beginning of a relationship, a guy will try to feel out how much a woman likes him …especially if he feels some amount of insecurity about how much she’s into him.The guy, if he hasn’t already, starts talking about how he doesn’t want to be in a relationship for some reason.the guy change his mind if you’re going to stick around regardless of whether or not you’re in an explicitly committed, exclusive relationship?What I am saying is that in the beginning phase of the relationship, it’s common for one or both people to have some amount of insecurity and want to go out of their way to make sure the other person really likes them before they let their guard down.
