How to spot a smooth talker

He avoids in depth questions

A man who’s really interested in knowing you will do everything to gather information about you within the first few dates. On the other hand a smooth talker will only be interested in what you do for fun or your favourite hang out spots. Be aware of how he reacts when you ask him meaningful questions about life, goals and aspirations. If he jokes about it or tries changing the subject know that he won’t hang around for long.

He never discusses his feelings

If you were asked what you two are you wouldn’t be able to put a label on it because, honestly, he’s never said why he keeps coming back to you. He’ll compliment your looks and how amazing you are as a person and it ends just there.

He’s easy on the tongue

Someone who’s previously lured a lot of ladies eventually becomes a pro at it because he’s had enough time to practice right? It’s quiet rare that upon meeting a stranger he immediately grabs your attention unless, of course, you’re dealing with a smooth talker. This is the guy that’ll make you giggle even when you‘re trying to pull a straight face. 

He's the’one day’ type of man

You’ll hear about all the amazing places that he’s been to and wants to experience with you. The problem here is that he’s not particular about his plans with you. He doesn’t put  any time frame to his plans it’s always ‘one day’.  He does this to avoid making promises and to give you false hope because he knows that three months from now, he’ll probably be smooth talking someone else.

He’s too interesting to you

Without him even trying, you find yourself keen on giving him much of your attention which is something that you rarely do with men you don’t really know. Beware of a man who appear to be overly interesting to you within the first few moments of interaction. You know what they say… if too good to be true, it probably is.
