So there's this guy you've been dating for a while and you love him, really love him. But there's just something about him that makes you feel like he's not yet ready for a relationship, for you. If you still can't make up your mind whether you want to be in a relationship with him, or if you're currently in a relationship and you have this nagging feeling that he's not totally into what you have, then we hope this list helps you. Maybe you have to press pause for now.

 1  He can't stop talking about his ex.

 2  He just got out of a relationship.

Inconsistent is his last name. He forgot to call you when you got home, he was too tired and fell asleep. He didn't text you for days, he was too busy with school. Always ready (for an excuse), this guy.

Is he trying to hide something from your loved ones? Oh it looks like he is.

 5  He loses it when he is faced with a stressful situation.

Not that he should just relax, but he just doesn't do anything to address the whole situation.  

 6  He doesn't know his priorities.

And he's adding another role on top of being a student, a son, a brother, and a friend?

 7  He leaves you hanging.

You wait and wait and wait for him—whether its for his calls or his messages or during conversations, when he gives you vague answers to questions about your relationship. He doesn't give you enough so you can be sure of what's your role in his life.

 8  He keeps seeing other girls because he says you're not yet exclusive.

Spontaneity is lovely from time to time, but always second-guessing is exhausting.

 10  He doesn't say I love you.

Because he's "still looking for the perfect time to say it." How about now is the perfect time because you just need to hear it?
