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

I think this question has to have been directed at the women of the forum. Us men have no idea what the heck is going on in a woman's mind!!!

Because

a. They lie to get an advantage. (Sex, attention, a meal etc.)

b. They don't know if they want to be in the relationship or not.

c. They want to finish the relationship, but are uncomfortable telling this straight to the face.
So they try to move out of the relationship giving signs they are not interested anymore, and hope the problem will get sorted in this way by itself.

d. They are not really interested, but keep the woman warm until they have someone better to sleep with.

e. Laziness.
Commitment and taking responsibility in a relationship needs effort, and it can be difficult to keep up the standards.

I think that you will find equal number of people of both genders falling into these catagories.

True. With exception of 'd' probably.

Personally I know a lot of people of both genders who constantly apply to D.

E. in my opinion, is the only one that's really gender specific. Laziness is definitely found on the Y chromosome.

There are no "mixed" signals sent by men. What you take as "mixed" signals basically means "I want sex but not comittment."

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

Women will always find it puzzling, though, because they just aren't wired to sleep with almost anything that moves like we are. As a result, it takes a while to come to terms with the fact that it is much easier for men to sleep with someone that's below their standards of dating. Combine that with perhaps an unrealistic self-image and impossibly high standards, and you get women who have a very hard time in the dating world.

It's much easier to say to oneself - "He's afraid of commitment and I can change that", than admit - "Maybe he doesn't want to commit to me." It's not easy for anyone to come to terms with something like that.

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

Yeah, but the guys have unrealistic standards too a lot of the time. Just because you get to watch a certain type of woman copulate with hairy, overweight guys in pr0n movies it doesn't mean that she would do it with you for free.

Thats what you get when you watch those free pr0n channels.

A guy checks into a hotel and says to the receptionist, I hope the prn channel in my room is disabled. She replied, its regular sex you sick b"s%rd

And that's where nature works against women, unfortunately. Guys with unrealistic standards usually just end up sulking alone and not getting anywhere. Women end up going through disappointment after disappointment.

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

Nah, I just think that the thousands of ladies working in the red light district probably serve as replacement girlfriends. The problem is that if you regularly pay for a woman who is a 9 or 10 when you are a 3, I think you start to think that it's the only acceptable standard looks-wise and you will be unable to enter into a normal relationship again. At least not happily. Which I guess is fine and actually works out cheaper than getting married with a stay at home wife but it's still kind of sad...

Yeah, we're not talking about the same men anymore. We were previously talking about good-looking guys who are capable of having many women on the hook, and don't know how to articulate that they aren't looking for relationships with them. Or who don't know any better.

The guys in your rant exist and are pathetic, but not really on topic anymore. But you needed to vent, I get it.

In that case, one should be looking for a Convent to join rather than a relationship.

Other than that its all quite simple fundamentally: either a person wants to settle down in a relationship with a partner or not. Rest are just stupid excuses and explainations.

"Good guys" can do far more worse than "bad boys" in relationships. People just dont want to settle down with one partner, except at times when they are going through a bad phase in life and need someone around. In good times most of us want to go out and experience the new season.

Even attractive, successful men choose to pay for sex rather than have all the drama of a woman who thinks she can get a relationship out of them. It's business thinking, nothing else. Why put up with the same woman who may or may not maintain her looks and may or may not have the same notion of fun in the bedroom as you when you can just pay for it and have a different hot girl every time?

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

Why are we getting so bitter here....really now.

Games get old. For everyone. Sooner or later, people either finally grow up, or get tired of it, or invest in something more rewarding. Why waste time whining and worrying about being played or used.

Just go out and try your best. And have fun while you are at it. If he/she turns out to be a player, it's their loss, innit.

Yes, thats why the Player men go for the younger and inexperienced ones soon after.

Get tired of playing?!! naah...

Yes, I have seen so many players crying rivers on the losses the have suffered.

The only thing a player would cry over is... Why cant I have one more like that!!!
