Dating games playing hard to get
As a result, I have—unconsciously or unintentionally—taken him/it for granted. It happened to me recently and I can laugh about it now, but at the time I was freaked out, because he had been very consistent for the first month, then the curveball.
He knew what he was doing and I have to give him props for playing the game.
With the abundance of options available, men have less motivation to get serious with one woman.
Of course, it is easy to blame Tinder and hookup culture for keeping them single.It really is like a basketball game; the ball bounces from your court to her court at different times, especially at the beginning when you are learning about one another.I am definitely guilty of having a guy pursue and chase me and make it oh-so-easy early on that I have felt like I didn’t have to work as hard to build something. He skips calling me for a day or two or doesn’t ask me out for Saturday night and I go cray-cray.Now, there are always exceptions and last minute fun events or basketball tickets that come up, but we are focusing here on the beginning stages of dating, so humor me.
My girlfriends and I have talked this topic to death and we have all said “no” to last minute dates and, of course, been accused of playing hard to get for it.
This became an issue for us both and instead of being the bigger person and communicating with him, I played games and hard to get, intentionally logging onto the site and leaving it open Well, as most of you have guessed, my games backfired and he told me he did not want to date a woman who was always online seeking other men.
