  • Well first of all I'd like to give you a hug. Then I'd ask you to clarify whether you're asking about a character flaw, even a mental condition, or an attitude towards a single individual. – JHCL Oct 18 '15 at 10:01
  • An attitude of an individual – Ehaan Oct 18 '15 at 10:18
  • So what are we talking about? She has one special boyfriend, and rejects shows of affection from all others? And Ehaan is one of those others? – GEdgar Oct 18 '15 at 13:11

Well, girls usually go with the word "jerk" preceded by any of the dozens of adjectives, such as:

unfeeling jerk, condescending jerk, arrogant jerk, self-absorbed jerk, conceited jerk, dismissive jerk, etc.


If you mean that such person is not feeling love for you and try to express it by being reserved (showing no familiarity or cordiality), you can say that he is distant.

Example: I thought my parents were distant and unloving.


I would say that they sound uninterested.

uninterested adj. not interested in or concerned about something or someone.
