Dating: Are men playing hard to get?

So I have this ongoing “flirtatious dance” in the elevator situation going on with one of my neighbors.  We’ve lived in the same building for five years now and somehow we don’t go beyond a twenty minute conversation.  He’s invited me over for dinner but we never set a date.  I’ve asked him for a ride on his bike but we never got around to it.

He is painfully shy and not at all a “slick” player from what I can tell.  At this point, I’ve long given up on moving things from the elevator!  I was asking my “male decoder” how much reassurance men really needed. How many ways can a woman indicate to men that they  have the green light and can proceed!?

He told me that it could be a matter of shyness or maybe he is just playing hard to get. I’m stunned.

Wait a minute! Do men even play hard to get? Why? Why would they do that?  I need answers! I don’t think I’d have a clue of what a guy playing  hard to get even acts like.  To me it’s either full court press or I’m traded in for …

Do you need an ‘ex flame repellent’?

I am your fellow soldier on the love battlefield, so I feel compelled to send you this warning: Beware of returning exes.  I’ve noticed  “returning ex” season kicks off in March and I’m expecting a random visit, text message, or Facebook poke from one of my exes.  It’s so funny because they usually find a way to work in:  “So, are you seeing anyone?” or “Are you married yet?”

Does it ever bother you when your ex pops up in your life? Are you happy to hear from them or annoyed that they are still keeping tabs on you?

Why does it seem that our exes wait until we are over them, completely happy, and moved on to a new romance to show up?

Are you in need of an ex flame repellent? What do you do to keep unwelcome ex boyfriends/girlfriends from ruining your new romance?

If your ex is still able to garner some kind of reaction from you, does that mean you aren’t really over them yet?
