The more answers I read to questions about dating and relationships posted by myself or others, the more I begin to wonder...
One in particular I always find interesting is about these dating rules and games many people seem to follow. Personally, I don't do any of those because I don't like to waste time. I'm very direct and honest and like men to be that same way with me. But I have found that many people are ok with playing hard to get, waiting for him to make the first move, not calling until a certain day, etc. Why is that?
Do you enjoy playing these games or not? Do you follow the dating rules (ie. the guy should call first)? Why or why not?

I am like you are and try to be direct and honest whenever I can, however, I've found that I've had the most success with guys when I've sucked it up and played by the rules. As annoying as it is, boys seem to be familiar with the game playing and have come to expect it. If you are honest about liking them, they assume that you're desperate or that you have no life because you make yourself too available to them.
Guys like the chase and being in control, so I guess it's best to let them have what they want. If you make yourself hard to get, then they begin to see you as a real catch because it took effort to land you and not just anyone could do so.1
