Is Playing Hard to Get Worth It?


Is Playing Hard to Get Worth It?
Don't rely on this age-old game to land a boyfriend. Here's why it's likely to backfire.
  • Read the guy: Lots of guys simply have no patience for games and/or already feel like ALL girls are playing hard to get just by being themselves. Their girly, mysterious, confusing selves.
  • Make sure you have at least superficially plausible reasons for evading his advances. When you say “Oh sorry, I didn’t call you back for 10 days because my car broke down,” you are being dishonest, which is a huge turn-off.
  • Don’t take it to extremes. The longer you try to be elusive, the more it seems like you’re laying a long con (and you might leave the impression that you do this all the time).

No But Seriously
Do you really want to catch the guy who might only be interested because he likes the challenge? Letting him chase you a little bit is fun for both of you, but the lasting appeal that comes from being honest about your feelings will always trump the fleeting thrill of a risky game.
