Apparently now days, it is well within our duties as both guys and dolls to be well aware of this thing that we like to call ‘game playing’.
I am not referring to any kind of snakes and ladders or hide and seek either.
I am referring to the scenarios falling under, oh I can play that game way better than him or her, we can both play hard to get here!
It has got to the point that we are expected to be playing this game 24/7. It makes the start of developing relationships or even just harmless flirtations pretty difficult.
You are not a game player, but you’ll play along regardless. If the person you like even blanks you for a few hours there is a sudden urge to make them wait when you do get a reply. Absence makes the heart grow stronger and all that. Busyness is no longer an excuse because there are too many means of social media to not be able to contact someone for just a second… right?
I don’t like playing these games. Not so much anyway. To the point where I have said to myself “oh, don’t think so, I’m not playing these games, i’ll just ignore the person”. Yeah ultimately entering once again into some kind of playful torment between two people.
Of course there are always the perfect exceptions, but this seems to be more common now.
Does it work? Do you enjoy it? Is it fun? Maybe people really are just busy?
I’m majorly intrigued to find out the thinking behind it all.
