I hear this all the time and am just wondering if this is true. What keeps the guy interested?

Anyone playing the GAME OF LOVE YES. But not all. This can go for both sides. Women like to chase guys "bad boys" but once they get them they try to change them into the prick they are not. Men like to chase women but once she turns around and saids... Hey lets move in together? They run... games game games.1

Men do this all the time, and judging from the responses below they don't even realize they're doing it. Which is why if you try to talk to them about it they'll act confused, hurt, and cornered.
It boils down to the male "chase and conquer" mentality. Men are designed to find things they want, chase them, and conquer their goal. Once they have accomplished that, they scale back their efforts and look for something else to conquer.
When a man is chasing a woman he will do ANYTHING necessary in his eyes to get her. He will be very romantic, use more words in more sentences than he's ever used in his life, open car doors, buy gifts and flowers, etc.
Once you tell him you're committed to him he relaxes. He turns his energies towards work or his car or his hobbies. The number of words he says drops to his normal level. No more opening doors, no flowers, or gifts. Valentine's Day is for "chasers" not "keepers."
There is no way to avoid it. It just is. It's largely why marriages suck. They expect sex on demand with no romance, which makes it hard to want sex beause you just feel like his maid, cook, secretary, and whore.
The only thing you can do is play games to make him less certain of your interest, which is exhausting.
Disclaimer: some men are very romantic and verbal by nature. I'm talking about your average Joe.
