If she's picking silly fights, or there's an unusual increasein emotional distance, you've got bad news.

11. He keeps you waiting. And waiting. And waiting.
"Time is an important non-verbal communicator," says Wood.If he keeps you waiting, it's a sign his interest is waning,and a sign of disrespect.
This is true for dates as well. If he starts waiting untilthe very last minute to make date plans with you, it's likelyhe's lost interest, or he's hoping something better will comealong and he's using you as a back-up.
12. She buys a personal pager, or a pre-paid cell phone.
This is bad news. Just about every privateinvestigator in the book will tell you the pager purchaseis a sign of impending heartbreak. Sure, it could be forwork, but more likely, she's using it to get a head starton her post-you life. Beep Beep - Bye Bye.
13. He used to be a three-blue-shirts-and-four-pair-of-Chinoskind of guy, and suddenly he's obsessed with Armani.

If your sweetielooks like he just finished taping an episode of "A MakeoverStory" - Those Chinos might not be the only dud he'slooking to lose.

Only time (and his shoes) will tell.
