Mind games have been around as long as relationships have. However, how do we know when a guy says that you are messing with his head that he is thinking you are playing mind games with him? The short answer: We don’t. There could be many other reasons as to why he would be saying this to you. It is just up to you to figure out which reason best fits your situation. Keep reading to go through all the reasons he might be saying you are messing with that head of his!
You have been sending him mixed signals: Yes, a huge reason that he might be saying that you are messing with his head is that he thinks you are sending him mixed signals. This might be taking a negative effect on him. Have you been clear about where the two of you stand with each other? If not, he might take this as you messing with his head. Or he might say this too if you are seeing more than just one person. Take this as a good sign, because it definitely means that he likes you a lot. Unless you don’t want him to like you like that… Then you may have a problem. You will have to diffuse the situation with him somehow and stop… Well, to be quite frank, stop messing with his head. Be honest about what you want from him and it should clear this whole problem up pretty quickly.
He is trying to deflect hat he has been sending you mixed signals: Or, on the contrary, it might be a fact that he is the one that has been sending you mixed signals. Ask yourself if you feel that way! Have you talked to him about these mixed signals? If so, then he might just be telling you that you are messing with his head because he wants to deflect from the fact that it is actually him who has been messing with your head! This is a tactic that many guys use when they have been caught being pretty flaky. He might want to make it seem like this is all your fault. But in reality he is the one who hasn’t been very clear about what he wants from the relationship (if you have one at all) that the two of you share with each other.
He is avoiding taking things to the next level: A guy could be saying that you are messing with his head because he is avoiding getting serious with you. He wants to make it seem like things in his head are all confused. This is a great way for him to avoid having to become committed to you. Essentially he is just trying to play mind games with you, because he wants to drag out whatever you have right now as long as he possibly can. This is a good indicator that he is seeing more than just one girl at a time. So be cautious if you find out that this is the reason that he said you were messing with his head.
He wants to play mind games with you: Some guys are just mean enough to want to mess with your head. So it turn they tell you that you are actually the one that is messing with their head. We know, this sounds awful, but the sad truth is that there are some guys who solely reach out to women just to play certain mind games with them. He finds a thrill in reeling you in and then saying something like, “You are messing with my head!” Although we like to believe that every guy we talk to is 100 percent into us, it just simply is not realistic. We have to remember that some guys, also known as “players”, do this kind of thing because they are honestly just bored with their lives.
He is not very experienced at relationships: However, it is a slight possibility that he is telling you this because he truly feels like you are messing with his head. You might not actively be trying to mess with his head, but it sure is coming off to him that way. This is generally a reason found with guys who do not seem to have much experience when it comes to women or relationships. He might think that you are messing with his head, but you are just doing normal things you do when you are building a bond with someone. Don’t take it personally. He just needs more time to get more experience before he fully understands everything that is happening.
You have taken over his thoughts: He might be telling you that you are messing with his head, but he might actually mean it in a very positive way. He might mean it as in, “You have taken over my thoughts all day and all night. I cannot stop thinking about you!”
This is a good thing. However, you will usually know that this is the reason because he will say something really sweet that revolves around the sentence. He won’t just say that you are messing with his head and leave it there. He will add on why he thinks that you are messing with his head. It will usually be something pretty flattering, too.
