“Try to judge from her gestures”
One of the most maddening things to have to deal with when it comes to women is trying to figure out if she’s playing hard to get or if she really isn’t interested in you. Sometimes playing hard to get can be fun, but more often than not, it just ends up being annoying and ends up being confusing for both of you. Fortunately, finding out if a woman is playing hard to get isn’t as difficult as long as you know what signs to look for. Women have the habit of subtly letting us know that they want us to chase them. You just have to know where to look.
She Flirts, But Shoots Down Your Advances
This one is a bit tricky. A lot of women flirt with no intention of ever hooking up with you. However, most women who flirt with you, but don’t make themselves available right away are actually playing hard to get. You can tell this especially if they are the ones who initiate contact with you either through phone calls, emails, texts, or even in person. These women like to be chased, but they don’t want to risk you giving up on them, so they will always make sure they are available to chat and flirt with you.
Another way to figure out if she’s playing hard to get is to look at exactly how she’s shooting you down. If she doesn’t mention that she has a boyfriend, or doesn’t tell you that she’s having too much fun being single, chances are that she wants you to keep chasing after her. If she does have a boyfriend and constantly complains about him, it’s another good sign that she wants you to pursue her even harder. If you really want her to make you aware of where you stand, you should back off for a few days. Let her wonder why you are no longer chasing her. More often than not, she will be the one to attempt to get the flirting going again. She may even start trying to chase you. Let her.
She Makes You Wait
“She is doing it knowingly”
If a woman has your number, flirts with you with no problems, but never calls you, there is a high possibility that she’s playing hard to get. Women want you to chase after them. If she sends you a simple message such as, “What’s up?” and nothing else, what she really wants is for you to start up a conversation with her. She doesn’t want to do it herself and risk being shot down, so she’s leaving it up to you to see if you are really serious about hooking up with her. If she tells you that she’ll call or text you and doesn’t, making it so that you have to contact her instead, it’s almost certain that she’s playing hard to get.
Even if you like the chase of playing hard to get, don’t allow a woman to go overboard with it. If you feel like you’ve been doing too much chasing, fall back and make her change things up. Let her chase you and give her a taste of her own medicine.
