I hate playing dating games

I was once seeing a guy (hindsight; total knob) who declared an hour and a half the time he was supposed to turn up for a date, that he actually wasn’t going to, then, spent the whole of that evening texting me with how much he missed me/likes me/wants to be with me. The Facebook Flirt: Those who flirt relentlessly with others over Facebook (posting suggestive messages on walls; hinting at plans to ‘catch up’; signing off with winks and kisses) and the like, to keep their love interest ‘on their toes’. The Fisherpeople: This species constantly tries to ‘bait’ their love interests for reactions.

Games are not for men or women who want a real relationship.

For me, being real is much more rewarding than playing games.

In other words, don’t play girl’s games but do play games with girls? Why do so many men have step-by-step instructions on how to get a woman?

Why do they feel like they need to trick women into liking them, and then play with their minds until they are so fucked up that they don’t actually know how they feel? A guy who figures that he’s not worthy or capable of getting a woman simply by being himself, so he has to come up with these tricks and techniques to follow.

Four days later, after his third call went unanswered, he left this voicemail: I had a great time with you the other night and I’d like to get to know you better.

I understand that you’re busy, so I’ll let you contact me when you’re available.

For example, take this introduction: “Hi Rebecca, this is Jackie…,” sans the “my girlfriend” part, when no doubt, Jackie has heard him poo; seen his privates, and is called ‘cutie-pie’ behind closed doors (or some other sickening love name that we all give our partners).

The Stupid Meanie: Advocates of the ‘treat em mean, keep em keen’ dating philosophy.

, which, amongst other things, encourages men to put down women they’re attracted to, to ultimately ruin their confidence and gain the upper hand – a practice called ‘negging’. I am anti-these books, and if ‘negging’ isn’t enough of a reason, it’s because most of them advocate manipulation; editing oneself, and time-wasting. Firstly, please let me clarify that if you date me I’m not going to clog up your phone with “I wuv U baby” text messages; casually hang outside your home (i.e.

Take the most common dating advice book inclusions; to every invitation. stalking), or buy a wedding dress after our second date. What I don’t understand though is if you’ve got a person in front of you, who you like, why go out of your way to extensive scientific research. For your own sanity, it is my recommendation that you avoid the following types (and Two and a Half Men) like the plague: The Relationship Denier: Just as silly as their climate change denying cousins, these people do not have the testicles or female equivalent to admit the truth.

If a woman finds herself with a guy who hides from his true potential behind digital games, she will instinctively lose attraction for him.
