He'll answer the first one if he actually wants to talk to you. I can keep going, but I think you get my point. I won't lie.
It's almost become a rule at this point in our society that you have to play mind games with your crush to keep them interested in you. But "playing the game" makes dating and relationships giant headaches when they don't have to be that way. There's a huge misconception out there that you have to be clever and manipulative when dating someone new to keep them on their toes, and somehow that is supposed to make them want you more.
How can you tell if someone is playing hard to get or if they are just not interested? So why do we do it? Well, if the dating game today is anything to go by, then apparently we do.

Social media being the prime way of doing so, where millions of individuals socialize and blabber on for hours on end every single day. No face or voices, unless you want it so. Actual interaction in some sort of virtual reality where your sense of touch can be used is not yet possible.
But a bit ironic, given that MEN themselves are masters of game playing in relationships. In fact, the tough love coaching I give my clients is aimed at protecting women from falling victim to such games. What kind of games am I talking about?
There are the social norms of not harassing or abusing on dates which are really important. The dating rules that I have come across make me concerned for those loving souls just trying to connect while holding on to their authentic sense of self; so I thought, I would write guidelines for a win-win situation. Get rid of them!
You always have a choice about the games you will and will not play. Some games are flirty-fun, but sometimes they are detrimental to your emotional stability. You know the difference when it happens to you and the people around you.
