Dating guy games
Hot to spot him: Every joke he makes is really funny. In 2012, the Huffington Post reported on a survey conducted by the makers of a mobile pet app, who found that certain breeds of dogs attract the opposite gender more than others. Walk a puppy across a college campus, and you’ll see what I mean. Well, any guy who can express his love for a puppy or a child becomes insanely attractive to most women (especially women dreaming about starting a family).He never misses an opportunity to show off his wit, but his responses are rarely quick. John Grogan, the author of “…it’s all about the dog – and what that tells women: A man who can love, and be loved by, a dog is a man they can trust, a man with good odds of being decent and sincere and in touch with the soft center beneath the hardened shell.”Every male player knows that the only way to grow the tree of desire in your heart is to plant a seed and water it often.The hope is that my two young daughters will read it some day, and become immune to these antics. All it takes is a witty remark or flirty jesting to make a girl smile and break down any defensive shields around her heart.This is difficult to accomplish in person, because it requires very quick thinking and perfect timing.It is largely a matter of perspective and awareness…and all of us (including myself) would do well to keep pushing ourselves towards acceptance, compassion, and understanding (versus attacking or defending as the first instinct).The skilled “player” uses very subtle flirtations – first dipping his toes into your pool and checking to see if the water is warm. A former Managing Editor of Make Use Of, he's spoken at national conferences on Data Visualization and has been featured on national TV and radio.I hate the whole game of one person sending a text and the other waiting two hours before responding, even if they have their phone and aren’t busy, just so they don’t seem desperate.

And definitely not how you think they “should” be acting. When you aren’t in the right headspace, you can interpret something as an attack or disrespectful action and attack back when the original action wasn’t an attack or disrespectful action in the first place.The best way to relate to people is to give them the space to be how they are and find a way to accept them and relate to them for who they truly are. If you can accept someone with compassion in your heart (and not view them through a lens that they’re doing something to/against you), then you’ll actually be able to relate to him without guardedness and without putting yourself in a position where you risk feeling hurt, resentful, taken advantage of, rejected, etc. Our mindset colors the lens through which we see the world.I really don’t like playing games but this guy I’m involved with is being very confusing and I can’t tell if it’s just a game or not.Is there a way to break the texting game or is that who that person is by nature and there’s nothing that can be done?
