As for me, I have never been the type of girl that plays hard to get – it seems too manipulative to me. However, I know that many view this a way as capturing the one they want. Since I have been thinking about this topic, I decided that I would give you 7 tips on playing hard to get today …
It is important to first make sure the individual that is showing an interest in you is worth it. The object here is to go with someone you will like and not someone you are just going to let down. I know that this can be hard at times, but make sure you first at least have an interest in them, then play a game of hard to get. Sure, leading someone on that you are interested in could be fun, but you don’t want to lead someone on if you are not interested in them.
The first time the individual asks for your phone number, don’t give it to them. Make them ask for that phone number at least two or three times before you finally give it to them. When they do call, you will decide when you want to answer the phone and when you want to return their calls. Remember, it wouldn’t be a game of hard to get if you gave your phone number up right away.
Of course, you should keep a little ray of hope in there for the individual you are playing hard to get with. If you go to far with this game, the individual may view you as impossible and move on to someone else. So, remember to keep that balance and don’t take it too far.
When they offer a date night, tell them you are busy that night. When they give it a second try, tell them that you will be busy during that time as well. When they come to you with a third night in mind, you may take it.
Yes, you should be accessible during this “game,” but you should still be “out of reach” if you know what I mean.
Sure, you should give them what they want, just don’t do it in a way that they would expect it. This way, you will keep them interested in you.
You should call them when you know they will not be at home and leave a message. Then, when the return the call, don’t answer the phone right away. Instead, wait a couple of hours, then call them.
Those are my 7 tips on playing hard to get. If you are the type of person who enjoys playing a game of hard to get, then I am sure these tips will come in handy for you. Do you have any other tips that you would like to add to my list?
