8 Signs He’s Just Stringing You Along Because You’re Convenient


When we commit ourselves to a relationship, we do it because we think that it will last. We’ve decided that the other person is worth our time and effort. When that person is just wasting your time, it can be devastating. No one wants to be strung along as a second choice.

Don’t allow yourself to be used by someone who doesn’t really care about you. These are 8 signs he’s just stringing you along because you’re convenient.

1. You Always Make the Plans

He never makes the effort to try and see you. You’re the one who always has to plan the dates and decide where and when you’ll see each other. You may even feel like you’re annoying him by constantly asking him when you’re going to hang out.

2. He’ll text You But Won’t Call

It’s not like he completely ignores you, he does text you – but only when it suits him. Besides texting you though, he never calls to see how you are and how your day has been. When you try to call him, he usually doesn’t pick up and will text you back instead.

3. You Don’t Know His Family

Even after all this time, you still haven’t met his family. Whenever the topic comes up, he avoids it and comes up with an excuse of why you can’t meet them yet. He’s even reluctant to meet your family as well.

4. He Never Expresses His Feeling

Your man is a bit of an enigma. He never opens up to you about anything. Not his feelings now, his past, or his plans for the future. He never lets you see the real him or let you experience his vulnerable side.

5. He’s Always Busy

It seems that your man leads quite a busy life. He’s always doing something somewhere else and you can never quite get a hold of him. You feel like you need to book him weeks in advance if you want to see him. Even then, he’s likely to cancel at the last minute.

6. There’s No PDA Allowed

Even if it’s just holding hands in public or a giving him a kiss goodbye, he will not engage in it. He absolutely hates any form of public affection, no matter how innocent it is.

7. You’re Never His Priority

He puts everything else before you. His friends, work, hobbies, or any other excuse he can think of all comes first. When there’s nothing else for him to do, that’s when he’ll call you and finally want to spend time with you.

8. He Doesn’t Include You in His Future

The biggest warning sign that your relationship is going nowhere, is if he doesn’t talk about the future with you. He may talk about his plans, but they never include you. He doesn’t see you being with him several years from now.

We can pour our hearts and souls to someone and they can still use us. Don’t allow yourself to be strung along by someone who only has you around out of convenience. If your significant other does these things, then it’s probably time to dump him.
