Most Helpful Girl
1- if the woman is playing games, you're either dating young and/or immature girls. Or she is damaged from another gy and is on defense mode. Or she isn't interested in you but she doesn't want to be mean or hurt your feelings so she's nice, and you confuse that nice with "you have a chance". More often than not its the first one or the last one I just listed. The last one is the most common, and men and women both do that.
2. Not all women want assholes. But no woman wants a doormat stage 5 clinger. And it's usually the doormat stage 5 climbers that say women only wnat assholes. If a woman is interested in you, and I mean actually interested, you will know. Don't be the guy who gets friend zoned and hangs onto that rope for dear life hoping that everything nice she says or does means she's actually interested and you're about to escape the friend zone, or that she'll wake up one day and realize she loves you. Don't be the doormat who is available and at her beck and call 100% of the time. Don't let her talk about other men with you, don't be her guy pal. Don't let her push you over or use you. Don't be so relentlessly open for her. If you take everything I just said and applied it to a female, you will understand more of where I'm coming from. No guy wants a girl to be a doormat stage 5 clinger who's always touchy and needy and always forgiving. It comes off as desperate and creepy and no one likes that.
If you are not like any of this, not even with one girl you were burned by, and you just posted this question based off of your experience with one woman, I don't know what to tell you other than obviously one person doesn't represent them all. One asshole doesn't mean all men are assholes. Just that ONE man was an asshole.
