Women have been sharing the really obvious hints that went totally unnoticed by a guy – 17 proper bombshells


‘A friend (now boyfriend of 7 years) asked what I wanted to do that night. I said “you”. He didn’t even seem to register what I had said. He was like we should go see x movie.’


‘Him: “I dont want to pressure you, but it’s pretty late and I think you should spend the night. My couch is super comfortable and I can make it up for you if you’d like.’

‘Me: “Maybe I could sleep in your bed with you.”

‘Him: “I promise the couch isn’t bad”



‘We were married two full years before I finally understood that if she took a bath at night I was going to get some. Watched a lot of baseball while she lay sparkling clean in bed alone.’


‘Me: I think you’re really cute and I like you. A lot.

‘Him:…. uh, thanks.

‘Accepting this unrequited crush, I decided I was happy being friends with him.

‘3 months down the line he spent hours comforting me after a disastrous night and then finally confessed he had feelings for me, going back 6 months. When I asked why he didn’t say anything when I told him my feelings “but I wasn’t sure you liked me.”

‘That was 4 years ago, he’s still as cute and dense now, and is fast asleep next to me.’


‘This girl was sitting with our group of boys and saying “if I was to get with one of you, it would be you [my name]” And I was just like “Ah thanks very much, very kind of you to say that”


‘After many moons of trying get this guy in bed I straight up humped his leg in an act of horny desperation. He thought it was hilarious. Years later he asked me why we never hooked up.

‘Edit: some clarification. We were making out on his couch at the time. I didn’t just attack him and try to fuck his leg.’


‘I was laying down on a bench with my head in his lap talking about our previous /experiences/ (this was high school) and he told me he had never had a bj before. I told him, with my head in his crotch, that I could blow his mind. Nothing. Crickets.’


‘I told my boyfriend to get naked and he responded “YOU get naked” so I said “Okay. I will if you’re nice to me 😉 “. He laughed and went to sleep. Guess he didn’t want to be nice ._.’

Maybe this guy spoke for a lot of men …

‘As a guy, I completely see your hints all the time but I’m afraid that I’m wrong and going to get rejected/made a fool out of myself so I don’t do anything.’
