When it comes to the games people play, few are as frustrating as when someone tries to make you jealous. If you’re wondering how to know if a guy is trying to make you jealous, there are a few telltale signs. First, he may start talking about other women he’s interested in, or he may try to make you think he’s interested in someone else. He may also start paying more attention to other women in your presence.
He will all of a sudden appear to be very busy
Don’t get alarmed if, out of the blue he suddenly seems too busy, perhaps even to take your calls. His sulking is just a signal from him to you that he needs you to shower him with more attention, and he wants you to get this point without saying it directly.

This happens to be one of their favourite tricks to make their women feel jealous. If you find him laughing away to glory at some other woman’s joke that is not even remotely funny to you, just know that it is only one of his attempts to make to feel jealous.
He “at the last minute” finds a reason to cancel a plan
You have made some plans together and unexpectedly he cancels it at the very last moment and is also unable to give a sound reason for him doing so, don’t press the panic button. He is just trying to put you through some agony trying to make you think what exactly he is up to
