I was reading about guy thinking that if you do all this, it always works out. Here is what he wrote:
End conversations early. Cancel dates. Be late. Appear disinterested. Don't lean in. Stop trying to kiss her all the time. Don't tell her when you'll contact her. Don't say you've been in love. Don't talk longingly about your exes. Don't console her. Take days to call her back after first time sex. Don't ask for her opinions. Be insensitive.
Why would I want to continue dating someone that is unpunctual, cancels dates, is late, ends conversations when he feels like it and acts all flaky? At work, you get fired for being late on the 3rd time.
I get the not talking about exes as no one wants to hear that but most of the things he wrote sound pathetic. If someone keeps cancelling dates I would already become disinterested. I wouldn't appreciate to always get cut off early in a conversation either. I would find that rude and not want to deal with someone like that. I don't appreciate someone that has to play that game to assume I'll then be interested.
Most Helpful Guy
People associate certain actions with neediness. What they don't understand is those using rules and formulaic practices such as scarcity and Pick Up Artist tactics are usually the most desperate and needy. It is sad in this day and age when just wanting to live life and see and talk to who you want is seen as undesirable. The biggest test of a person is how they are when they are with you. Too bad many people forget that but that isn't my problem.
If people do not have the courtesy to get involved in life then i don't waste my time with them. After all, I could die tomorrow and the person ignoring me today will never know what i wanted to tell them. It really does annoy me when people play games. I lose respect for them rapidly. Good on you for not taking crap.2
