If you’re dating a guy or you’re interested in him but you get the feeling he doesn’t take you seriously, that’s a potential red flag. You must determine whether he takes you seriously or not.
To help you out, here are 5 signs he doesn’t take you seriously and we will also discuss what you should do about it. You deserve not only to be taken seriously but to be fully appreciated. If he’s unable to give you the same positive energy you give him, you should move on!
5 Signs He Doesn’t Take You Seriously:
1- He either talks badly about you to his friends or no one knows you exist:
When a guy doesn’t take you seriously, he will either talk badly about you to his friends or he won’t talk about you at all. If he talks about you as the girl who’s always chasing him and is super uncool, that’s an awful thing to do. Anyone who talks badly about you behind your back doesn’t respect you or care about you.
He’s not only misrepresenting you, but he’s also poisoning people’s perceptions of you. He might be doing it to appear to be desirable or in demand, but his motives don’t matter. If he used you in that way, he doesn’t care about you.
If you ever hear that a guy is embarrassing you to make his friends laugh, you can either return the favor or walk away because he sure as hell doesn’t deserve a second of your time.
2- He doesn’t treat you like a priority:
If a guy is serious about you, he will make you a priority and you will feel it. He will make time for you and make an overall effort to make you feel special. He will communicate his plans to you and include you whenever possible, check up on you, and make the most of your time together. As a result, you will feel cared for and you’ll have a great time.
So, if he does the exact opposite, that’s one of the biggest signs he doesn’t take you seriously at all. If he never makes time for you and gives you less than the bare minimum, he’s communicating that you’re not worth the effort.

You deserve someone passionate about you, so don’t settle for less because you think he’ll change. He won’t and you shouldn’t wait for him anyway.
3- He doesn’t care what you say:
When a guy doesn’t take you seriously, he won’t care at all if you open your mouth and talk or not. He won’t make any kind of an effort to maintain or start a conversation with you. So, if you notice you’re always the one to say hi and you tend to carry the conversation, he may not be interested in you.
If you already have a boyfriend but you have noticed that the two of you don’t have any meaningful conversations or talk, then check this article out to see how you can connect mentally, emotionally, and intellectually.
Additionally, a guy who ghosts you for days on end and then comes back as if nothing happened is not taking you seriously. He doesn’t think he needs to keep up with you, you’ll always be there. Well, it’s time to show him how wrong he is. Block him or consistently leave his messages on “read” and be done with him.
4- He’s never up for any of your plans:
You’re always coming up with things you guys can do together but he never seems to be up for any of it. He always wants to do the things he wants to do, there’s no middle ground. If that’s the case, it means he doesn’t take you seriously enough to experience things with you.
Additionally, he never wants to show you his favorite places or let you in on his favorite activities because he doesn’t want to associate them with you. What you can do in this case is just focus on yourself.
Make time for YOU and take yourself out on dates. Focusing on your life will remind you that you don’t need anyone else to be happy. Make yourself a priority and someone who will do the same for you might show up soon, so you don’t have to settle for the minimum.
5- He doesn’t share anything with you:
Last but not least, if he knows more about you than you know about him, that’s a big sign he doesn’t take you seriously. It means you have put in the effort of getting to know him and he hasn’t bothered to ask more than a few surface-level questions. It can be difficult to realize this, but once you do, there’s no turning back.
If he makes no effort to have meaningful conversations with you and he seems uninterested in your life or the kind of person you are, he doesn’t take you seriously. In that case, you need to reevaluate the relationship. Do you really want to pursue someone who doesn’t care about you either way?
The difference between a guy who takes you seriously and a guy who doesn’t is abysmal.
Once you start to pay attention, it’s really easy to see whether a guy is truly interested in you or not. If he’s not, he can hit the curb because you have better things to do with your time!
