Guys Reveal What Will Make Them Actually Stop Pursuing Someone They Like

So you met this guy at the bar when you were having a great time with your friends and honestly had no intention of meeting anyone. The two of you start talking, and you're lukewarm toward him, but you can tell he's really into you. Your suspicions are confirmed when he texts you first thing the next morning, asking if you'll go on a date with him. One date turns into another, which turns into another, when, suddenly, he stops talking to you. Ever wonder what makes a guy stop talking to you? Well, I'm a girl, so I don't have the answer off the top of my head, but a recent Reddit thread asked dudes to give their very own firsthand accounts of why they stopped talking to girls they liked.

Pro-tips after having read them all? Stop playing it so cool and actually act like you like him if you do. (That means maybe don't keep up the whole "hard to get" thing up for very long.)

Without further ado, read along and take note of the frankly pretty reasonable reasons why guys have stopped pursuing girls they liked.

When you stop texting him back

When you mention your ex

When he realizes he's the only one putting in the effort

When there are too many games

When he doesn't see eye-to-eye with you on the serious stuff

When you reject his invitations to hang out multiple times

When he feels like he's constantly chasing you

Hey, dudes, were there any reasons we missed on this list? Does anyone else out there have any thoughts? Comment them below!
