Unlucky-in-love singles have revealed the telltale signs that someone isn’t interested in a serious relationship – and the most glaring one comes from yourself.
Australian dating coach Louanne Ward asked men and women if they can tell when someone just ‘isn’t that into you’ in her Facebook group, She Said He Said.
‘They are spending time with you but you have a feeling they are just waiting until someone better comes along,’ the Perth relationship expert wrote, adding: ‘Are there signs and is it possible to read them wrong?’
One woman said the biggest red flag is when you finding yourself questioning whether the person is into you in the first place, arguing that a healthy relationship will make you feel secure from the outset.
An overwhelming majority said someone spending hours on their phone while they are with you is the most obvious giveaway that their attentions are elsewhere.

‘When he spends a lot of time on his phone when you’re together,’ one woman wrote, while a second agreed: ‘Always on his phone instead of being present.’
Another said warning bells should be ringing if the person you are dating rarely asks when you are free next and never seems interested in learning more about your life.
She also urged others to watch for suitors who avoid introducing their friends, which can often be a sign they don’t envisage a future with you.
‘If they’re not pursuing you, it’s not going in the right direction,’ she added.
Seven ‘just not that into you’ relationship red flags
* Spending a lot of time on their phone
* Never making plans to meet
* Never asking questions about you or your life
* Avoiding introducing you to friends
* Always saying they are busy
* Failure to hold eye contact
* A niggling doubt or gut feeling that something isn’t quite right
Spending hours on the phone and a gut feeling that something isn’t quite right are telltale signs that someone isn’t interested in you, according to Australian singles (images are stock)
‘You should step back until all three of those things happen, then decide if you want to commit to them or be open to dating other people.’
Others said failure to hold eye contact is a major red flag.
However Ms Ward insisted this may be due to nerves and ironically, a sign that someone is very much attracted to you.
‘I have been also been in positions where culturally keeping eye contact with a woman is considered rude. Certainly, a wandering eye is a completely different story,’ she replied.
