He’s not necessarily mean, but he just doesn’t want the same type of relationship that you do.
Often this problem stems from single women believing the can change a man’s desire for a relationship. That is pure fantasy. Once a man tells you he doesn’t want a relationship or, when he doesn’t make time to see you on real dates, the rest lands on your shoulders.
Yes, it’s up to YOU to maintain standards for the treatment that you want and deserve.
Establishing boundaries means that you know what you will and will not put up with to have a man in your life. And quality men who want a loving relationship will pursue you and do their best to win you over. They will happily spend time with you, treat you well and try to impress you.
If he doesn’t act this way from the start, or dating disintegrates into a virtual relationship — you need to cut him loose. Otherwise the chances are extremely high that you have some serious embarrassment headed your way.
Here are the seven telltale signs to watch for that let you know he’s not serious about you.
1. He tells you he doesn’t want a relationship, but you date him anyway.
You go on a first date with a man who has many qualities you’re seeking. He tells you right away he doesn’t want a relationship and then engages you in interesting conversation. You like him and decide to see where things go. This is a big mistake.
When a man says he doesn’t want a relationship, you need to believe him and move on.
2. He flirts with you, but doesn’t ask you out.
This man — you know him from work, the gym or church — is such a flirt! He goes out of his way to turn your head. Funny thing is he never asks you out. He’s always happy to see you, but it doesn’t go any further and that’s your clue he’s not seriously interested.
Any man who wants to date you will ask you out. If he doesn’t, there’s something holding him back, so move on.
3. He says he’s never been in love.
This is a tough one. Some women are drawn to a man, who appears vulnerable and admits he’s never been in love, like a moth to a flame. He becomes your “love project” because you think he just hasn’t met the right woman yet (a.k.a. you!).
Thoughts like these will leave you feeling foolish when he breaks it off. If he hasn’t been in love and he’s over 40, he doesn’t want to be in love. Don’t’ fall for this — please walk away.
4. He texts, but doesn’t have time to see you.
So many men love texting. But any man who texts you “Good morning Beautiful” but doesn’t have time to see you is probably texting several other women the same message. Imagine the ego boost of texting with a bunch of single gals.
Don’t waste your time no matter how much fun texting him is or how “into you” he seems. If he was serious, he’d spend time with you in person.
5. He’s newly divorced, isn’t ready for anything serious, but wants to “see where things go.”
This is a tricky red flag because he tells you right off he doesn’t want anything serious. Yet, he dangles the possibility of a relationship based on how things go.
In your mind you know things could will go great because you’re a great catch. So, you decide to take the chance. Big mistake!
When a man tells you he isn’t serious, he means it. Finish your glass of wine and say goodbye.
6. He brings “take out” to your place, but you never go out.
Your date suggests takeout and watching a movie at your place (The old “Netflix and chill” routine). Sounds cozy right? But this is the man code for “booty call.” He comes over to your place, but he never takes you out on a proper dinner date.
Why? Chances are he can’t risk being seen in public with another woman because he’s in a relationship or married. Avoid dates at home until you’ve had several dates in public to see how serious a man is about pursuing you.
7. You always set up dates because he doesn’t.
When you call and ask him to do something, he agrees to meet you. But he never initiates anything.
Is he lazy? Maybe, but the more likely motivation (or lack of it) is that he’s just passing time with you. He has fun and you’re willing to do all the work, so why not spend time with you until he meets a woman he likes more.
Don’t be a place holder if you don’t want to feel foolish. If he doesn’t ask you out, regardless of the reason, drop him fast.
Once you spot any of these seven red flags, commit to walk away and find a better prospect.
I understand that walking away is not easy. Some men seem too cute, charming, or fun to reject them and resist their advances. But, don’t waste time with men who make a fool of you. If you have any inkling or suspicion, move on because there are plenty of good men out there for you to date.

These PPEs comprise N95 respirators, surgical masks, examination gloves, face shields, medical gowns, no-touch thermometers, disposable aprons, heavy-duty rubber gloves, rubber boots, basic masks, disposable gloves, and hand sanitizers.
Since the first confirmed case of the disease in Nigeria reported in February, over 800 healthcare workers have contracted the disease.

Taking Care of Tomorrow’s Leaders Today – The itel, Lagos Food Bank Example
Waking up to a special meal or choice gift is the best feeling ever. Hundreds of children in Mushin, mainland Lagos, had a filling taste of this feeling for the October 1 st celebrations. It’s an experience they will remember for a long time.
Being one of the most responsible corporate citizens around, celebrating Independence Day was always going to be on the radar for itel Mobile. To make this possible and memorable, the brand got to work in earnest. The focus of the work was picking the best way to commemorate the 60th independence anniversary of the most populous black nation on earth.
The efforts soon paid off through an impact-driven partnership with the Lagos Food Bank Initiative. With the arrangement, both partners considered a couple of activities capable of affecting communities positively and bringing smiles to people’s faces in Lagos. At the end of the exercise, taking care of children, the leaders of tomorrow, in the commercial city secured the highest votes.
With the decision, itel Mobile set about making this happen. Not surprisingly, the decision was
influenced by giving children the means to excel and prepare them for leadership and nation-building, for them to enjoy better life. For the good of their immediate family, community and the Nigerian society.
Idiko, Mushin, a suburb of mainland Lagos, was chosen as the benefiting community. And the partners strategically reached out to the beneficiaries, children and families, with gifts of love, care, happiness and support made possible by the itel Love Always On CSR initiative.
Over 1,000 families benefited from the gesture as well as 600 children, and each one of them received food packages to celebrate Nigeria’s 60 th Independence Day commemoration.
Speaking on the event and itel’s Love Always On CSR Initiative, Oke Umurhohwo, itel’s Marketing Manager said, ‘We wanted to mark this year’s Independence Day celebrations differently, and that is why we did something so momentous for our children. Children are the backbone of any longstanding community, and as such, we are proud to be able to give back and support them on their journey as leaders of tomorrow and for a better life.’
To meet the demands of the memorable event, 30 volunteers joined the customer-centric brand and the Lagos-based NGO to share smiles, and to convey just how important it is to love and take care of today’s children who will ultimately become leaders of tomorrow.
With the thoughtful activity, there are insights for everyone, from the government to citizens, on partnerships that are capable of making life better for children. Indeed, itel Mobile and the Lagos Food Bank Initiative have offered a great template on bringing this to reality.
