Why do guys flirt but not ask you out on a date and does that mean a guy just wants to be friends and not take you out?

Probably just shy

most of the time if a guy flirts and does not ask you on a date he is just shy or afraid that you will say no. Try turning the tables on him and asking him out instead. At least, this was why I would flirt, but not ask the girl out.


They do want to take you out it's just guys are shy sometimes.

Everybody Flirts Sometimes

If depends on the guy. Is he shy? Some guys are to just to shy to ask for a date. Does he already have a girldfriend? Is he gay? Consider the situation and take time to find out more about the person. Sometimes people just have flirtatious personalities. It doesn't mean they want a serious relationship. The best way to find out if a guy wants a date is to ask him. How will you know if you don't ask?

A view from the other side

Maybe. But I bet not.

An awful lot of people are afraid of rejection. Very often someone will give all the signs, but then be unable to work up the courage to the last yard. What, you ask, how could he be afraid of someone as nice as you?

Here's what's going on in his head. He's met this absolutely wonderful girl, and while he's managed to get up enough nerve to talk to her, he just can't quite ask her out. Because if he muffs it and she says no it will wreck the great time you're having together now. Or what if she's already going out with someone else? Someone that terrific must already be involved with someone else. Don't want to make a fool of himself. So he waits. Maybe next time he'll have a better opportunity.

Is that rational? In a probabilistic sense, not really. But it's the way a lot of people are. While I am way past having to go through the agony of asking girls out, I can certainly remember going through that. What I missed out on because I was too scared to speak up! The guys who fire on anything that moves get a lot more babes, but I'll wager that the more reserved ones make better companions. After all, they're probably not going to be out firing on someone else while you're not looking.

Only thing I can suggest is be patient. Be approachable. Be open. Maybe drop a subtle hint or two.

Look For Flirting and be nice to him

He doesn't like you more than friends. But maybe you guys would just be better as friends.

Guys flirt! Don't expect any type of relationship until you are in a relationship. Guys flirt.

If her friends are girls and you go out with them and your girlfriend theres a chance that they will flirt with u. It will end very bad. Going out with just your girlfriend is much better, or if she really wants you to go with her and her friends, ask her if you can bring some of your friends, that way your girlfriends friends have other guys to flirt with, rather than with you.

Because she probably wanna make new friends or she's looking for somebody 2 date..or just looking for a sex body

Just flirt and become best friends with the guy.

It's too difficult to answer this question. It sometimes depends on the guy. Some guys flirt with everyone. Some guys flirt only with the girls they like.The nature changes when these guys enter a relationship. They might stop flirting and develop some other characteristics.

Guys sometimes try to annoy you when they flirt or if you guys are texting and he sends you lots of winky faces and hearts that is also considered flirting

What i do is... smile, be nice... and after a while you guys will be hanging out like you have been best friends all your life

Girls flirt with boys because they like them. They feel that if they flirt with the guys then they will start to like them. I flirt with guys to give them signs that i like them or want them to come and talk to me:) - hopefully this helped

Guys (of any age) flirt with people they find attractive and want to know if there is mutual interest.

Say you never got over him and ask if he wants to hang out. If you want you can do the "just friends" act.

Guys are sweet and honest but they care more about the friends they have then a girl (or guy) who they like. If it opposes any of their friends views they probably won't go into a relationship. Also, if it creates awkwardness then guys will probably also avoid it. Guys are complicated underneath and don't like showing it, you have to break the ice to understand them.

It sounds like you too are very young. If she hangs out with guys then she must have more guy friends than girl friends. Just give her some time. Maybe you will find someone else.

Because some guys are like this and believe in cheating and that it is ok to flirt and look but not touch
