Dating is complicated. Sometimes people are jerks and instead of being honest and truthful, they lie. They don’t always lie because they’re trying to hurt you – most of the time they lie because they don’t want to hurt you. This especially comes into play when a crush makes plans with you and then blows you off.
A lot of time, guys will give you excuses as to why they can’t hang out instead of just saying “I don’t want to hang out” because they’re afraid to say that. I won’t be a hypocrite – I’ve used all of these excuses at least once. I know it’s horrible, I’m sorry! Anyway, while these reasons are sometimes legit, a lot of time they’re just a lame excuse. Here are 5 excuses guys will give you when they’re blowing you off. Beware!
I’m So Busy With Work/School/Etc.
If a guy has a crush on you and wants to be with you, he will very rarely be too busy for you. Especially if he made plans with you! Think twice if he cancels plans because he’s too busy. Unless he is legitimately stuck with work stuff, I bet he’s giving you an excuse. It’s just vague enough to mean basically anything, which is always suspicious.
I mean, what guy is really going to cancel a date he’s really excited about because he would rather be busy doing office stuff at home? Let’s be real, guys. Even if he has a super hard assignment, he would get that stuff done with plenty of time left for a date.
I Totally Forgot I Made Plans With My Friends
If a dude is going to go on a date with a girl he likes, he’s going to choose that date over his friends (unless it’s a legit obligation or you guys have been dating for a long time). It’s basically a fact. And how did he forget but conveniently remember right before your date? Okay.
Oh, My Phone Died/Is Broken
This excuse happens when you have a date with a guy and he just ignores all of your texts and phone calls until afterwards when he’s like, “OMG my phone died/broke/got lost and I tried to get in touch but I couldn’t!” and you’re just so relieved to hear that he wasn’t ignoring you that you believe it. Except he probably was ignoring you because there are other ways he could get in touch with you. . There is always another way.
Telling someone you’re sick to get out of something is so easy because it’s basically foolproof. You can’t argue with someone that they’re not sick. You’re not going to tell them to come out anyway. And, on top of all that, you’re going to feel bad for the person! I mean, sure, everyone gets sick, but if your crush seemed fine up until a few hours before the date and he’s been acting shady – bad sign.
I’m Sooooo Tired
If a dude likes you, he will never be too tired to go out on a date with you. NEVER!
