Most Helpful Guy
I dont play games either, so when I am interested in a girl, I will distance myself to see if she expresses interest, initiates hang outs, or continues to like me. If she doesn't then I take it she isn't interested and move on to find a girl that will. If she is playing games and "ignoring me" to be cool, or to not seem "desperate"(I hate that mentality by the way the whole "I dont want to be desperate" thing is a load of BS), then its her loss cause I know I am a great guy to date, and its too bad for her that she didn't feel like expressing interest in me, cause now she isn't getting me at all.1

i honestly think they do. i've been told by a guy that when a guy likes a girl he wants to feel like she likes him more than he likes her, and by pulling away it will have her chasing him, which gives him that feeling.
now obviously this doesn't apply to all, but it makes sense1
