I don’t play games, so it always amazes me when guys think that the following 12 things are strategies or manipulations to get one over on them. They’re really not—they just help me suss out who I’m dating and ensure that I don’t settle for less than I deserve.
1. SAYING I’M TOO BUSY TO MEET UP
When a guy wants to see me and I can’t make it because of work or other social commitments, he’s quick to think that I’m just playing hard to get. Oh, please. I really am busy, but it happens naturally that not being too available does show me how a guy handles it. If he throws a fit or acts like a sulking man-child, my busy schedule has helped me dodge a bullet!
2. WAITING FOR HIM TO MAKE A MOVE
I don’t think it’s bad to let him make an effort. He has to meet me halfway and I need to gauge his level of interest before I jump into the relationship, right?
