He's kept your attention for two months by doing almost nothing.

And we wonder why men play games.

I am to learn such games---although perhaps they are already being played if such ladies do not call back either.

I think this reaction absolutely illustrates the original OP. Whereas the chap thinks nothing of a flirt and passing some attention onto a young lady, she is wracked in torment once it stops. It won`t ever change because thats the way we are. The moment that the chap continues his attention, and the young lady understands, thats when she accepts and to quote an old very old saying:_
Why be so complicated over a regular crush. It happens both ways. More you care more you over analyze and try really hard not to come across as a needy codependent type. But. There is a fine line between that and between just lazy or having poor dating manners. When people really care, they can read the signals really well and usually respond. If people have poor dating manners or are unresponsive, then they deal with consequences. Why go out of her way so much ..I'd only call if it hasn't been decided who calls and who makes the first step. Honestly, if a guy said he would call and that was the last I'd hear from him, I wouldn't be the one to stalk him. And....sticking to some kind code of behavior that is acceptable for me might actually inspire some guys to act, it might be even a turn on for others. Good luck, Begga. If he cares, he will let you know. People sometimes need space and time, sometimes even to sit back and enjoying taking things super slowly. He might be just busy playing some kinky scenarios in his head (well.....honestly, if that is true, you would have heard form him the next day, hahaha). But your life isn't going to stop, waiting.

I thought games were to get women to bed, not having them scratching their heads...

Not all men are trying to get you into their bed - some are just trying to get themselves firmly planted in your head.

Sex is easy. Being remembered is the hard part.

Please remember that this is the world wide web- and if your friend is internet savvy, he is likely to recognise himself as you have given enough clues.

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

Chicken and egg situation. I used to have this thing called moral values and a hope of happily ever after. Reality is a different kettle of fish entirely. If there is something prettier and shinier to be had, it takes a special kind of guy to say 'nope, not for me'. Most women I know have invested time, energy and sometimes even money to help their partner achieve their goals, often pushing them a little but not uncomfortably so. You don't just run off with a random guy when the nice chap you have at home keeps you safe and happy. A tight butt is not a selling point for me...

Men's messages are 'mixed' because a lot of them are running around in what is essentially a sweetie shop, unwilling to choose, sampling a bit of everything.

Maybe that's what she wants... Some sort of Begga Gambit where she sacrifices a little bit of personal info in order to Force a Move that would lead her into a !! play

Do think that the title should say 'some' women.

It's true, it is not a m/f thing.

My mom would always say: "it's all about what one finds acceptable, there is no rule nor judgment".

I think it is about what Beggs accepts or not. But waiting inactively, pausing one's life while hurting isn't the best thing I'd suggest. And I am no expert on dating matters.

Of course not.

Everyone knows that all men are cheating, game-playing, misogynistic, selfish, lazy bastards.

Please pay attention, Odile.

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

DB, you're smarter than that... I know only one woman who behaves the way I've described and believe me, I give her hell for it. She's pretty with an amazing body, so obviously men are prepared to put up with all sorts of BS from her - in a way it's their own fault, you want the thing everyone wants, you'll end up sharing. Especially if the lady in question is an insecure and unstable attention seeker... So she changes boyfriend and declarations of affection and love on a 48 hour basis. But like I said, that's just the one girl, all the other single ones are increasingly adopting my way of thinking, not prepared to let anyone close because of the damage it causes.

I'm smart enough to know that I have never "played games" with a woman, nor have I ever cheated on a woman. Yet, until I met my wife, I experienced more than twenty years of being cheated on and played like a fool.

That's because people are fundamentally a bit crap. Not men. Not women. People.

But if you want to believe that women are, somehow, any better than men, please go ahead.

Whatever floats your boat.

Same difference. The thread is full of generalisations and bullshit, because people can't help but apply their own experiences to the other six billion people on the planet.

All men are bastards. All women are gullible. All black people are lazy. All Chinese people are inscrutable. All Germans are nazis.

Stands to reason, dunnit, eh?

Yes! This. I have just read this whole thread. Exhausting.

Yeah, women are just as crap as men, but you find awesomeness in both genders, so perhaps people are generally a bit crap but not fundamentally a bit crap.

Check your punctuation DB, or you'll get into big trouble

I agree, hate all those generalisations and stereotypes banded about. I object to the title as as a woman I am neither a victim nor gullible. And neither is my OH.
