It’s kind of like a little kid hoping their parents don’t realize they’re lying about who really broke the lamp. Sharing a few smiles across a crowded room is usually a good sign a guy is interested. The problem is, he doesn’t want you to know how afraid he is. All of these are ways for them to deal with feeling a little inferior to the hot girl they’ve approached. Did you just tell him about getting promoted at work? Odds are, an intimidated man suddenly comes up with an excuse to leave.
