I know I know!! Did me some mighty good though!







A little madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King,
But God be with the Clown —
Who ponders this tremendous scene —
This whole Experiment of Green —
As if it were his own!

OK then,

Why don't we just rename the title to:
"Why do women always COMPLAIN about falling for game playing men?"



You know it's a game, and you know you will continue to do so...... so what's the problem?

Or you could be yourself?

Try talking to Mr. Wilde... Didn't he say something about not spending your life mimicing others?

This is a HUGE mistake I made in a former life. I can say with confidence and conviction: If you're not hurting your partner, do NOT change your essential self to suit his or anyone else's whims. You'll never find Mr. Perfect and you'll never be Ms. Perfect so compromise is important, but you should figure out what your true principles are and stick to them.

Ideally find a partner that matches your fundamental principles and outlook on life. Then you just have to accept that you'll need to compromise on the rest. That may mean that he's either not Mr. Universe... or you'll have to put up with his games.

And why, I ask you, do the men come running back as the woman moves on?
So you already have the answer right there.
You know how to get them running back, so why not turn the tables and have him running / chasing instead of dumping.
It's so much fun to be chased, don't understand why girls put up dickheads that don't bother to chase.



-If he doesn't call, he's just not that into you. Move on, there are PLENTY of fishes in the sea!

Personally, I managed to move on, and realised that I deserved to be treated better than that.

-If he doesn't call, he's just not that into you. Move on, there are PLENTY of fishes in the sea!
But are they the fishes you want?
And is he only a dickhead because he won't do what you want, but instead does what he wants?

Things is, a guy that a typical girl finds attractive is attractive to *many* girls. There are plenty of fish in his sea too.
So he doesn't have to chase any one girl. I understand that you want to feel special, the one that he has chosen, but reality is you'll have to make some effort to hook him well before he feels like chasing.
The guys that don't have many options will chase you without much effort, but then you're probably not interested in them, right?

Re: Why do women always fall for game playing men?

It's definitely a Catch-22.

A friend once described what she was looking for in a guy and I think this sums it up perfectly: "I want a guy who can live without me, but chooses not to."

never met a man yet who has ever sent mixed messages (from a mans point of view)

if we don't call we're not interested, if a woman starts playing games then we're not interested, if a woman starts being all psycho then we're not interested, no means no and yes means yes etc etc

we're basically very simple creatures

No such thing, only guys who are not sending the messages you want to hear. If a guy is interested in you, he will do pretty much anything to get your attention. And it is up to you to be gracious about this rather than make fun of the poor sod like so many women do.

It drives me ABSOLUTELY bonkers when women spend hours analysing what a phone call after two days means as opposed to one after three. If a guy is interested, the minimum you can expect is a text or an e-mail within 24 hours of your first day. Heck, one guy even called as he was walking away from my house just after walking me home.

Also bear in mind that guys are not particularly interested in the thing that any man can have, so if it's too easy to catch you, they're instantly bored and the best you can hope for is to be filed under "keep keen for future reference, i.e. drunken booty phone calls/texts after a night out where I didn't pull".

If you make it past all those posts, then you have to brace yourself for make or break after three months. A lot of guys seem to get into a mad panic after roughly three months because they realise things are getting serious and if they have secretly being telling themselves that they are "just seeing how it goes, nothing serious", then this is the time where they have to decide in one way or another.

Additionally, if you hear the words "just got out of a long relationship", don't bother. You are the rebound girl and he will be a complete idiot until the rebound is over. Some more so than others. Sadly, BECAUSE part of what he misses in his long term relationship is the sense of intimacy, he will probably be unusually fast at doing things you normally only get to after at least a year, like talking about kids and marriage. He will "play house" and create this happy movie-like haze of a loved up cocoon. It won't last and you will get really badly hurt. It's happened to me, it's happened to my friends, it's simply a sad fact.

What about for example.. calling sometimes, but every time swearing that you are so totally interested and if she would just give you a bit more time as you're just so busy at the moment with blah, blah and blah, but just a bit more and ..? Wait and you're a fool who should understand that he's not interested. Move on and you're a heartless bitch not willing to put any effort into this relationship..Yes, I've had the latter vesrion as well and that man is probably telling everybody how egocentric and flakey women are, no understanding whatsoever..

I won't even get started with games and psychos. Many men absolutely LOVE them. It's this funny way of thinking, you see - instead of thinking "She's worth it, so I make an effort" they think "I'm making a lot of efforts here - so she must be worth it".

And "treat them mean.." works both ways of course. Like a friend of mine who only likes women until they become interested. He chases them, is all over them, calls, buys presents, takes them out, the usual - he would often give me relationship advice as well, was always telling that I should pretend to be less interested, not reply to the phone, ignore the guy sometimes etc. The only trouble is that the minute those women he has been pursuing show some interest in him and actually want to spend time with him, I already know that the next day I will hear that "Well..I'm not so sure any more...she's just too keen..". Every time, sure as sunrise. (The guy is in his 40s and still single, obviously).
