How do you know if someone is teasing you?

When someone "curves" you, they continue to respond, but they avoid any inquiries about commitment or attempts to define your relationship. They are telling you that they're having fun with you and don't want anything serious.

If you ask them directly if the teasing is for real, they will usually say yes. But beware of weasely "no's" that come after a lot of pressure from you. If they can walk away without hurting your feelings, then they're trying to be nice by leaving you confused.

The only way to really know if someone is teasing you is if they tell you outright. But if they do, just remember that it's not meant to be taken seriously and they probably have people who don't tease them too who can tell you more about it.

Teasing is used as a means of entertainment by some people. Whether they intend to make you feel uncomfortable is another matter entirely. Just keep in mind that when someone curves you, they aren't necessarily trying to hurt your feelings.

How can you tell if you’re being curved?

If you're being curled, it's because they're noncommittal and just not that interested in you, which means you're not at the top of their priority list. They will not go out of their way to inform you that they do not want to continue dating, nor will they try to set up dates or fully engage in a discussion. This type of relationship is best described as nothing serious.

If you think you might be curving, ask yourself these questions: Are we going out every week? Do I have to call them to set up dates? Is there a chance we could get married? If you don't get an answer to any of these questions, you probably aren't being curved.

Here are some other signs that you might be curving: If you call someone and they never call you back, even when you call several times, you're being curved. Not returning calls is another way for them to show they don't want to date you anymore. The more significant the person, the longer they should wait before not calling you back.

If you find out that someone has been curving you, let them know that this behavior is inappropriate. Explain that you want to keep your options open and not close anyone out prematurely. Most people understand where you're coming from and won't do it again.

When do you curve a person? What does it mean?

When you curve someone, you are not outright rejecting them; rather, you are attempting to avoid their approaches in a non-confrontational manner. The word gained popularity in 2016 as a method to describe when a person tries to let down a romantically interested person. It is used primarily by women to refuse men's advances.

The term "curve" comes from the game of basketball, where a team will pass the ball around the perimeter until someone misses a shot. If no one else shoots, then everyone on the team gets a chance to shoot again. This is called "rolling the ball," or simply "rolling." If someone misses twice in a row, then they get "rolled off the curve." This means that they no longer get any more chances to score.

Women use the phrase "you're rolling me" when a man starts to show interest in her. He is not being rejected, but she does not want to encourage him either. She is looking for a good time without getting too invested.

Men use the phrase "you're curving me up" when a woman starts to show interest in him. Again, he is not being rejected, but she does not want to encourage him either. She is looking for a good time without getting too attached.

Is he bending you? Here's What to Keep an Eye Out For

What does "curving a guy" mean?

When someone rejects you in such a subtle way, you may not even recognize it as rejection. It's a tactic for disappointing someone without explicitly telling them you're no longer interested. With this person, there is no clear indication that they are no longer wanted. They can still think they have a chance with you because there was never a clear cut-off date.

The problem is that by not giving them an out, you're leaving them no choice but to keep trying to get you into bed with them. Even if they don't say anything, you know what they're thinking: why would she want me when I can have her? The more they try and fail, the more frustrated they become with you. That's why men hate being curved.

The phrase "curveting a guy" comes from baseball. In baseball, when a pitcher throws a ball, he tries to make it curve toward the plate so that it becomes a strike. With a curveball, however, the pitcher cannot control where the ball goes after it leaves his hand. Sometimes it will curl away from the hitter, other times toward him. But either way it's a hit.

That's how some guys feel about women.

How can you tell if someone is flexing?

If your spouse publicly boasts about their successes, they may be flexing. "If your spouse is continually sending you texts bragging about stuff, it's a clue that they're bragging and utilizing texting to do so," Masini explains. "It's called flexing because it's using your fingers to type instead of your thumbs like normal people."

Flexing can also mean that your partner is feeling insecure or inadequate and is trying to make themselves feel better by showing off their accomplishments to you. "If they're doing this regularly, it's a sign that there's some insecurity going on with them," Masini says. "They might not know how to handle it, so they just take out their feelings on you."

Finally, if your spouse starts using texting to get back at you for something they did, then they may be flexing as well. "If they send you dozens of texts in one day then skip right over breakfast with you every morning, they're probably angry with you and aren't thinking clearly," Masini warns.

Texting while driving is dangerous and can have devastating consequences for others. If you suspect that your spouse is flexing, call them immediately before getting into an argument via text message.
