5 Signs He Only Likes You As A Friend & Nothing More

Men seem to assume that the friendzone is a kingdom they’ve claimed as their own since, apparently, women do not face the same problems in love as they do. But, the sad truth is that we have, all of us, at least once in our lives, been friendzoned by someone, or the other. And the problem is, sometimes we cannot figure out if they really reciprocated our feelings or just liked us as friends. So, here I am, to help you figure out if your crush has friendzoned you or not. As much as it might break your heart, it’s always better to know sooner rather than later if he likes you only as a friend so that you can move on to someone who would actually reciprocate your feelings.


1. Refers to you as ‘bro’


Men will never call the girl they are crushing on ‘bro’ or ‘buddy’. They don’t see their crushes as one of the guys so you can be sure that they wouldn’t address you the same way they address their other friends. However, if your crush does call you a ‘bro’ then he does see you as one of the boys of the gang.


2. He never flirts


Even if you two are just friends, if a guy has a crush on you, he will flirt with you, even if he passes it off as a joke later. He will pay a little more attention to you and will, at some point, give you clues about his attraction. If this is something that has never happened between the two of you, consider it a possibility that he only sees you as a friend.

3. He talks to you about other girls


Let’s be honest, if he’s interested in you, he will never discuss other women with you. Even if it’s in passing, he wouldn’t want you to think he’s interested in someone else. But, if he does discuss other women with you, maybe he’s just not that into you.


4. There is no difference in his behaviour


Notice how he is with his other friends and how he’s around you. If there is absolutely no difference in his behaviour, it is obvious that he sees you just as a friend. Otherwise, there will be a few differences in his attitude towards you and others; it may be subtle, but it will definitely be there!

5. He sets you up with other people


Now this is one of the more obvious signs. Bottom line is, a guy or person who likes you will never want to imagine you with somebody else; let alone set you up with somebody else. And if he has, then he only sees you as a friend.


So, it’s better deal with some minor heartache now than have your hopes squashed later!
