Here's me advising a girl who's asking if her best friend is letting her down or is gently telling her there's hope. This is from Reddit so I'll be reading the question and giving my take on the question that she gives me. Let's hope this is good.
So this is pretty much how you deal with people who have a lukewarm interest.
Take lukewarmness as a "no" and move on. I noticed a lot of my clients get into these situations where they encounter guys who are lukewarm clearly showing lukewarm emotions and yet, they still pursue.
Don't pursue a guy who's giving you lukewarm interest because that's how you end up being fucked over and that's where you end up developing a pattern of continuing dating guys who use you by letting this happen. You can't let a guy use you like that.
It's like you're doing it to yourself by not reading the signs. Women won't tell me not to pursue them because they're not interested, they won't tell me that. They'll ignore me but they'll let me pursue them. Now, the reason why I don't pursue women that don't like me is not because of them. It's because it's my choice. I chose not pursuing women who are lukewarm interested.
You got to say "no" to people who are lukewarm because they're not going to say "no" to you. They won't say yes though, and that's a problem.
