Dating playing the game
I always kept a little bit of myself back, leaving my potential date intrigued. Fast forward a few years (*cough, nine years*), with a few long term relationships under my belt I can tell you this now, I am naaaaat here for the games. Look, I don’t know whether it’s because I’m a bit older or what, but I can’t be *bothered* with games. I’m half introvert, and need to cut myself off sometimes to re-charge, ok? I don’t have the time or energy to deal with boy drama. Had fun on the previous date and want to go on another? If you need to play games to get someone to like you, there’s a big chance you’re not that compatible in the first place.
I know you know what I’m talking about because it has happened to each one of us.
Before we dive into specifics, the most important lesson is to understand what constitutes “game-playing.” At root, game-playing is about saying one thing but doing another.
People who play games “talk,” but their “walk” simply doesn’t match.
You may even seek out men who avoid commitment because of your own fears about becoming close to someone.
Becoming aware of any personal issues that may attract you to the wrong dating partners will help you find healthier relationships in the future.
