43 Reasons He's Not Playing Hard To Get, He's Just Playing You


Dating, hooking up and relationships are all awkward, interesting, fun and confusing times in any person's life. Why? Because the mind games that take place are absolutely ridiculous to the point that, honestly, no one can keep up.

The fact that people believe they can't be straightforward and must engage in these behaviors is enough to drive any sane person completely insane.

Saying things we don't mean just to give off the impression of not being interested just to make the other person more interested is the most twisted way we've learned to communicate in this day and age.

It's because of these games and skewed logic we never really know if someone is being sincere or facetious. So when someone acts one way, it's more than common to think they have ulterior motives.

But sometimes people actually are sincere in their motives, which just makes things more confusing. Rarely will you find two people on the exact same track.

So for all of you ladies who are basking in confusion like the rest of the population, it's time to clear a few things up...
