Dating and playing game

09 Apr

When young singletons brave the dating world, we basically have to amp up, suit up and prepare to take the gridiron.Dating today is a game, and it’s a fierce one at that. Playing hard to get is a flirtatious, natural, fun, sometimes difficult and intimidating course of attack.Although some believe today's dating game is challenging (OK, outright frustrating), we can't seem to get enough of it.Our automatic response is to chase when the "other" pulls away.

A major factor which adds to the existent stress and confusion during this period is game-playing.

It's long been the rule that when dating someone whose behavior is marked by hot and cold reactivity, you're standing on shaky ground.

This is the core thinking of the partner who initiates hot/cold, and serves as their safety net to vulnerability. Because relationship uncertainty makes human beings yearn for stability.

They're not sorting out their last breakup, and they're not swamped at work. The hot/cold scenario typifies much more than a lack of certainty on a lover's part. You quickly find yourself craving more of this delicious new feeling.

This phase lures you into the hopes of the possibility of romance.
