Dating playing it safe
You might have told all your friends that you are done with playing games, and you just want to be honest with the next person you date. It’s all well and good being straight and upfront with your next date, but if you are looking for something serious then honesty might not be the best policy.A study in The European Journal of Personality presents data collected from a group of young men and women attending four different universities.Well, it might help to first figure out which side the players are on in this big game of indifference.A person who is playing hard to get will more than likely have other guys or girls that are interested in them.Like John Travolta’s character Danny Zuko in Grease, the men of today (and yesteryear) all labour through the trials of dating under the misguided notion that “playing it cool” gets the girl. Well, if the dating game today is anything to go by, then apparently we do. Following “The Rules” that state that you cannot seem too interested in a guy is probably the wrong way to go about getting your man. Do we really think that “treat ’em mean to keep ’em keen” is really all it’s cracked up to be?Quite often this type of person just needs someone to talk to or to give them advice.
It’s actually possible that they will just stand you up and leave you waiting alone at the restaurant.But the fact that they still give you some kind of encouraging signal suggests that you are the one they want to get “caught” by.But if you find yourself in the situation of not knowing whether they will even answer your calls, then the chances are, you are not their type.Trust your instincts: If something doesn't seem right about the person, do not share your contact information and leave the situation immediately. Even if it's a little annoying, let your mom, dad or another adult know when you’re going out.Be sure to tell your parents who you're going with, where you plan to go and what time you expect to return home, too.
