Playing the game when dating
He knew what he was doing and I have to give him props for playing the game.
The ball bounced back to his court and I ran to get it. I need to hear a guy’s voice, get a vibe and have some sense of his personality before choosing to meet.
They don’t want to feel like a last minute plan or an afterthought.
This may present itself as a game, but with a little extra planning to ask a date out in advance, I’ll bet you’ll hear a lot more “yes’s” and feel like women are a lot less hard to get.
This first half is obviously a narcissistic tendency.
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.Be real, trust the outcome, and when a woman texts saying she had a great time with you, hit reply. And, yes, we can choose to perceive it as an excuse; but I can tell you firsthand, I have been accused of playing hard to get or intentionally not being available when, in fact, I have been working 15-hour days.This desire for a strong connection with another human is greater, possibly because it’s in such short supply given the world of modern dating.But breaking existing patterns and focusing on being real and straightforward requires me to be much more vulnerable.
