Sometimes that woman is playing games with you on dating apps or in real life because women are simply bored. They don't have any hobbies. They don't really have any life. She literally has nothing going on in her life that is independent from other people.
A woman's modern day life consists of swiping on dating apps, playing games with a dozen guys during the day by messaging them all day, watching some shows on laptop or tv, and then taking new booty/cleavage picture selfies to post online for an ego boost.
What are a woman's hobbies? They aren't really activities. Music? TV shows? Basically boredom activities at home where she is stationary and on her phone swiping dating apps and taking more pictures for attention.
Gentleman, you are the prize. The time and attention that you give to a woman is your currency. A woman's only game plan to take your currency is the prospect of sex. The fantasy and allure that you may one day get a chance to be deep inside her.
When a woman isn't texting you. She is not "busy". She is talking to 5 other guys for their attention. After work hours what is she doing that makes her "busy'? A woman literally has very little going on in her life. If she is not spending her time with you it is most likely attention from other guys or just very low interest. Men can easily assume that beyond attention of other men she is bored and lonely.
A man's power is ignoring a woman. If she really likes you she will contact you. Why? Because other than messaging a few other guys (who are clueless and thirsty) she has nothing else to do. But hey...maybe her girlfriends are around. Then they can go party at the bar together...to attract attention from...guys.
Women are completely dependent on other people for entertainment. Either dating app guys or girlfriends. They have no hobbies of their own. Are there exceptions? Sure. Gentlemen. You are a dancing monkey to her with a tambourine. Just merely her amusement.
