When he doesn’t show you off or make the relationship public. It is possible you’re his side piece. He doesn’t value you, and when he says he misses you, he’s lying to make you feel better.
Don’t be a suck-up… Know your worth!
When a guy values and misses you, he would do anything to make you happy. He would never manipulate you. When he’s lying, your gut strongly presents it. Never fall for it. Be strong. You’re worth more than a deceitful guy.
