You’ve been talking to this guy, and everything seems to be going smoothly.
Suddenly, he hits you with a “we’ll see” answer, and you don’t know what to do.
What does “we’ll see” mean, and how do you respond?
If you’re ready to master the “we’ll see” reply, just keep reading.
What Does It Mean When A Guy Says “We’ll See”?
If you’re not sure what he means when he says “we’ll see”, you won’t know how to reply.
Typically, receiving this response from a guy means one of two things.
He’s either flirting with you and trying to play coy, or he’s not that interested and doesn’t like you enough to commit to a full “yes” answer.
If the conversation is light and you have been joking back and forth, a “we’ll see” comment is most likely flirtatious.
If you’re texting and he adds an emoji like the winking or kissy face, you can breathe a sigh of relief and smile, knowing he’s teasing and does like you.
However, if you feel like the conversation is dry or he’s taking a long time to respond, it may mean he’s not that interested and doesn’t want to say yes.
Let’s go over the best ways to respond in each scenario.
If you’re into the guy you’re talking to or texting, and he responds with a flirty “we’ll see,” you want to keep the conversation going.
It’s ok to respond in an equally flirtatious manner, leading him on a bit to keep the light-hearted fun going.
Here are some examples:
“Oh, we will, will we?”
The beauty of saying this is, it almost always gets a “yes we will” answer back. The more he thinks of the two of you as “we,” the better. Subconsciously it will draw him to you and make him want you more.
“Nope, the answer is yes!”
Guys love strong women who know what they want. A guy will have a tough time turning down a girl he likes when she replies to him like this. Make sure not to sound bossy and keep the playful tone, but let him know you’re the one in charge!
“I guess I’ll just ask someone else, then”
As long as you’re both flirting with each other, this response reminds him how desirable you are and that it’s an honor you’re choosing him to spend time with you. If you’re responding over text, make sure to add a cute emoji at the end to ensure he knows you’re joking with him.
He Doesn’t Like You Enough To Commit
If you’ve been talking to a guy and he isn’t acting as interested as you’d like, there is a chance he’s not that into you.
Guys are sometimes hard to read and can seem disinterested when they’re simply distracted.
If you suspect his “we’ll see” reply is because he doesn’t want to commit, you can use a few responses to find out.
“Do you have something else going on?”
It’s ok to ask him if there is another reason he can’t give you a straightforward “yes.” He may have a prior commitment, so he wants to leave the possibility open to being with you.
“I’d really love for you to ____”
You can fill in the blank depending on the question you asked him. Telling him you’d love it if he said yes, shows him your interest in him, and you’re letting him know he’s important to you. If he responds positively, that’s a great sign, but if he seems disinterested still, he’s most likely not interested in committing further.
This answer is a serious power move. You’re telling him you don’t have time for anyone that doesn’t want to spend time with you and that he is the one missing out. You don’t have to say it rudely, just reply with a sweet “ok” and walk away.
If you’ve determined whether his “we’ll see” reply is flirting or if it means he doesn’t like you enough to commit, you’re probably wondering what to do now.
That answer depends on your conclusion.
If he was flirting
If he was flirting with you, first of all, congratulations, that’s amazing!
You’re in a great position because he’s already shown his interest, and you’re able to have fun together and enjoy each other’s company.
Now you can focus on letting the relationship grow. Assuming he does take you up on your original offer, enjoy your time together and see where it takes you.
Keep flirting with him and play a little hard to get. Remember, guys enjoy the “chase.” The best part of a new relationship is getting to know the other person.
If he didn’t like you enough to commit
If he did have a prior commitment, and that’s why he answered, “we’ll see,” then keep talking to each other and see if the relationship progresses.
If it turns out he didn’t like you enough, and that was why he chose not to commit to saying yes, it can hurt and make you feel upset or angry.
Try to remember that even though rejection hurts, it doesn’t mean you’ve done anything wrong or that you’re not good enough.
He simply isn’t the right guy for you, which means there is someone else out there that will make you happy.
Don’t let this one interaction keep you from opening yourself up again. You’re wonderful and unique, and your worth isn’t determined by what other people think!
Getting a “we’ll see” reply can be scary and leave you feeling unsure and confused.
It can either mean he’s flirting with you or that he doesn’t like you enough to commit to saying “yes.”
Whichever reason, remember, your worth is in yourself and not what others think of you.
I hope this post helps you gain the confidence you need to know how to respond when a guy tells you, “we’ll see.”
