My friend Eve thinks she has had more dating misadventures than she wants to remember. I think Eve is a great girl but I have warned her about going overboard on playing hard to get. I know women like to be pursued but we can sometimes forget to slow down and get caught!
Sometimes playing hard to get backfires because it starts to look a lot like playing games. I think men, especially smart men, don’t like women who play games. When men realize that there is no real effort at reciprocity or interest, they move on…quick. This is why I believe Eve has to figure out how to play hard to get but also know when to be responsive.
Do you ever meet single people who try to play hard to get? Are you intrigued by it or annoyed by it? At what point do you call them on it?
Are you guilty of playing hard to get? Does it work for you?
