Please, please, PLEASE grab every single magazine, website, leaflet or other form of communication that gives you Cosmogirl-type garbage advice. It is made to keep people dependent on their garbage, by constantly buying into the shitty advice.
In the end, the only true thing that matters is you. Who are you, who do YOU want to be and how do YOU feel comfortable. It is irrelevant what people around you think, as those people who are worth fighting for will also appreciate all the little quirks that you may have.
So what if that makes you different. Good, it makes you worth the time. It's so good to see someone genuinely being themselves rather than a clone of societal expectations smothered in teenage insecurity.
If you want someone, go for it. Take a leap, put your foot forward and show them through being yourself without any pretense or masquerade, that you're wonderful. But do not start the infantile games of "oh god play hard to get that'll help". Many men will literally just walk away and write you off because you aren't interested or simply come across snobby if you would do that.3THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

I'm with you, I have no interest in playing games and acting any differently than the way I am. I know what I want and I have no issue asking for it or pursuing it.
Even if it doesn't work the way I had wished, upside is, I didn't sink a ton of time and effort into it.
To me, Id much rather "lose" fair and square by being me. Saves a lot of trouble later with the questions
"Well, what if I had done _____? Maybe it would have turned out differently."
He didn't like me, he didn't want what I wanted, or whatever else it was.
It's done and over, I can move on.
I dont enjoy it when guys play games so it's only fair that I dont either.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
