Should You Really Play Hard To Get???

Plenty of guy friends tell you they dislike girls who play hard to get... So does this mean you shouldn't do so?

Nobody says playing hard to get is easy, nobody says life is easy. The art is not to let the 'victim' be aware of your intention. You have to keep him guessing, keep him on his toes. If he knows that you are playing hard to get, that also means he knows you are 'fond' (some people may be attention junkie and just wants to get as many people to fall in love with them as possible) of him and that defeats the whole purpose of your action.

The whole point of playing hard to get is really just to keep him guessing. You want him to know there is a possibility that you might be fond of him and also a possibility that you might not. Basically, you want him to pluck the petals of a forget-me-not and play the sissy game of "she loves me, she loves me not, she so loves me, she so loves me not..." He would then have to engage in a knightly quest to woo you or risk losing you.

Take the analogy of baiting the horse with the carrot. If the horse knows that you are using the carrot to toy with him, will it still chase after the carrot? Nobody, not even animals like to be toyed with for sure.

So in order to play a good game of hard to get,
make sure you don't play yourself too hard to get!
