Rules of dating a player
However, if someone is not interested, you should have noticed an extreme change in their behaviour.
Maybe initially they were approachable and keen, then after a while seem distant and unavailable.
If someone is playing hard to get they will avoid hurting your feelings unnecessarily.
They will call when they are thinking of you and if they say they will meet for coffee then that’s what they will do.
Like John Travolta’s character Danny Zuko in Grease, the men of today (and yesteryear) all labour through the trials of dating under the misguided notion that “playing it cool” gets the girl. Well, if the dating game today is anything to go by, then apparently we do.
They may still not seem 100%, keen and will try to maintain the act of indifference, but the personal questions they ask give them away.
Well, it might help to first figure out which side the players are on in this big game of indifference.
A person who is playing hard to get will more than likely have other guys or girls that are interested in them.
If you’ve tried to arrange a date, but it has been cancelled, the person playing hard to get will have a genuine reason for not showing up.
They will also probably have another time and date in mind so you two can get together.
