How to Identify and Avoid a Player

When a guy calls you babe, he means a lot of things and it may also mean that he is a player and wants to take advantage of you. Do not give him a chance to do that. Here are a few indications that you are communicating with a ‘player’.

He Pretends to Know Your True Feelings

If it seems that he is a little too much into you, he is probably just playing you. It is common for such men to call you every night, text you all day, and do everything else to make their presence felt. Once you get used to all this, they suddenly disappear, making you feel as if you are missing something. This is when you become vulnerable to all their tricks. Know if they are showing too much affection in the beginning and avoid such people as much as possible.

He Gives You Nick Names

He Compliments You a Lot

Everyone likes to be complimented, but if he does it all the time, know that something is just not right. Another thing to note is that a player will try to spoil you with his compliments and also ask you about your sex life. This shows that he is interested in you sexually, not emotionally.

He Doesn’t Want to Keep His Relationship Public

This is especially true if you are in relationship with someone you have met online. Know that he is a player if he does not want to be seen in public with you. A player would be very reluctant to hang out with you in public places mainly because he does not want to bump into his other girls. He definitely does not deserve your time and attention.
