RE: How do you disarm her games?

No way! You have to say something like: Hmmm!, that's a lot of uncertainty and I don't like uncertainty when you are sure what day and what time you are available we can make plans, otherwise this is not gonna work out.
Quote:I agree with your course of action. I don't agree with the labels "games" or "tests." Again, I think they imply an antagonistic relationship, and they also put 100% of the responsibility on the girl for what's happening, which I don't think is accurate at all.
I just see it as she doesn't like me enough to commit to a date and I'm not willing to wait around for a girl who doesn't know if she likes me enough. It's not her fault she feels that way. She's not trying to mislead me.
Let me ask you this, if a girl's way into you one night, but then two days later decides she actually doesn't want to see you, so she doesn't answer your calls or texts. Is that her playing games? No. She just changed her mind. She didn't like you enough. That's called flaking.
Well, 1st. of all I'm hitting on girls 15 years younger than me, so I'm not gonna expect them to be ready to go out with me on dates right away, it's gonna take time, effort and patience on my part. Even in your article about older women you say: If she likes you, she’s not going to play games and pretend that she doesn’t. She’s not going to test you as much or make you work for her attention. She’s going to genuinely show that she likes you and if you don’t like her back, then that’s usually fine too.
What I understood when I read that it's that implies that younger women are gonna play games and PRETEND they don't like you, that is to say: they are doing that on purpose.
And 2nd of all this even happen with women around my age (38 y-o) they show a lot of attraction just to look cold and distant afterwards. For me this is NORMAL, I see it like part of the game and I see it like a game itself I don't take it so seriously, again I just play along and I get the girl. Some sexual relationships happen right away, some others take time. I'm not in a rush and I can wait for the woman's process, depending of the case. Especially if I'm seeing other women. I don't throw the towel so quickly, some women offer some resistance I keep plowing and I get the girl. If I give up every time a woman seems to be flaky I wouldn't get laid.
Quote:phone tag (you call/text her and she doesn't answer), scheduling games (she doesn't know when she's gonna be available = playing hard to get), ignoring you when you are close to her, just to confuse you.
Quote:Again, I think you're just being hyper-sensitive and interpreting these things as girls "playing games" when really, they're probably busy and need to call you later, or they just don't like you that much. I've played phone tag with girls for weeks. Some people are busy. Some people don't prioritize dates very high in their life.
I think you could be right about the hyper-sensitive part, I've been thinking about that myself. Sometimes I think I'm kinda paranoid. I have to work on it.
Quote:I can't think of a single example in the hundreds of women I've dated where a girl has CONSCIOUSLY chosen to not answer my calls because she thought it would make me like her more. If it happened, I'm sure I dumped her on the spot.
Did you bother to read the attachments I added to the thread? It seems like you din't. Have you heard about this book: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_rules BTW it was written by american women.
Quote:Again, the idea of "playing games" implies that they actually care... care so much about what you think about them, that they're willing to lie and mislead you. I've fucked girls for months and had them not care enough about me to actually GO OUT OF THEIR WAY to lie, not pick up my calls, make me think they don't like me or whatever the hell those types of girls do. In my experience, most women just aren't that into you. And so when they display hot/cold behavior, it's about them, not about you. To assume she's consciously fucking with you is a very self-centered way to look at it.
Sorry, but either you're consistently picking up the only conniving and twisted women, or you're just misinterpreting girls being flaky and not being that into you as "games."
When I mention "games" in those articles, what I'm referring to is flakiness and indecisiveness. I'll be more careful when using that word from now on.
Well, it seems that we see the world in a different way and that's fine with me. But at the same time I understand what are you trying to say about being self-centered and thinking that some women's behavior are done on purpose to fuck with you when they could just be busy. I have to be careful about it. But I do believe that a lot of women play games and I don't sweat it that much, I can choose to play along or move on, if what I initially saw was a lot of atracttion and right after she's acting cold and distant I'd think she's playing games, a lot of women believe in them, from diferent nationalities. For me it's like a pattern, women tend to do the same thing over and over again I play along and I get the girl, so easy like that. I wish all my interaction were so smooth that I have sex with the girl right away but usually they aren't like that, there's some token resistance, even from women that are hitting on me.
