Your phone becomes your best friend or worst enemy, depending on what message, if any, it's delivering. Perhaps it's better not to play games in the first place...You’ve heard them; don’t approach him first, don’t flirt, don’t look friendly, don’t pick up the phone when he calls, wait four days before you call him back, never ever accept spontaneous invitations, act like you’re not interested, don’t show him you like him, don’t let him hold your hand until on the third date, don’t introduce him to your friends before he introduces you to his, if he’s not ready to commit when you’re ready dump him, never be friends with an ex etc. What kind of man does a woman who follows these rules attract?
Honestly, until the odds are ever in your favor, the only way to end the game is to play with the best intentions.
Stakes are high in the dating game, and there's no instruction manual for winning.
And it usually leads to fizzling out after the first date.
Look, when you expect your partner to be a mind reader, dating becomes Trivial Pursuit.
Like love itself, it’s just one of those things that you know once you see it.
