If you feel that he is leading you on, you need to ask yourself why you suspect that he likes you.
If you have noticed certain signs in the past that made you suspect that he likes you, you may not be the only one that he shows those kind of signs to.
There are guys who just like it when they are able to observe how a girl responds to their supposed signals of interest.
This doesn’t mean that they are necessarily interested in the girl.
They may just want to experience the sense of empowerment that they feel when they are able to influence a girl’s thoughts, emotions and behavior.
His ex girlfriend may be copying your style because she may get the sense that he has some kind of attraction towards you.
In order to keep his attention completely focused on her, she may be copying your style so that he doesn’t feel the need to direct his attention towards you.
Again, the mixed signals that you are getting may simply be due to a guy who wants to see how he can influence you emotionally, mentally and behaviorally, without him feeling any desire to take things further by talking to you or even asking you out.
He doesn’t talk to you at all.
This is often an indication that he only wants to keep this game of influence nonverbal and nothing more.
