Playing games while dating Free chat sex webcams
But while we're all gunning for high scores, here are the 15 games we should probably stop playing so we don't kill the fun.
Instead of bumping a dating dud off your roster and sliding onto your next suitor, you lie about having to housesit your own apartment.
Choosing between the guy-no-call-ologist and opting for a homie/lover/friend is exhausting.
Still, it seems every time our phones light up, we willingly participate in petty mind games.
Your phone becomes your best friend or worst enemy, depending on what message, if any, it's delivering. Perhaps it's better not to play games in the first place...
You’ve heard them; don’t approach him first, don’t flirt, don’t look friendly, don’t pick up the phone when he calls, wait four days before you call him back, never ever accept spontaneous invitations, act like you’re not interested, don’t show him you like him, don’t let him hold your hand until on the third date, don’t introduce him to your friends before he introduces you to his, if he’s not ready to commit when you’re ready dump him, never be friends with an ex etc. What kind of man does a woman who follows these rules attract?
Look, when you expect your partner to be a mind reader, dating becomes Trivial Pursuit.Playing games means deliberately withholding attention with the intention of simultaneously annoying and enticing your love interest and gaining the upper hand in the relationship.The games elongate the courting process, which we fondly refer to as “The Chase.” Neurobiology senior Claire Jordan said that while playing hard to get, one of the most popular forms of “game playing,” can be fun at first, it can also be a sign of insecurity.Like love itself, it’s just one of those things that you know once you see it.It’s the chase, the courting and the mind games that make dating a mess, but whether we like it or not, playing games makes flirting all the more fun, too.
Does it ever seem like the Dating world is a world completely unto its own, with its own rules, players, and most namely - games?
