I hated what he said so much because it was the inevitable truth I had been denying my whole dating-game-hating life. When it comes to dating, play by the rules, or you’re not going to score in any way, shape or form. I can hate all I want, and I can even band together with a fellow dating game hater. Based on the wise words of my “coach,” I feel I have no choice but to suit up and hit the field.
But really, has hating it ever helped my dating life? Whenever I’ve had a love interest, I’ve operated under an attitude of, “F*ck the game, I’m going to text anyway.” All of these times, it has never worked out for me and the guy I had my eye on. The dating game is filled with rules, spin moves and roundabout victories.
How then, can we find our perfect match if both guys and girls try their best to seem uninterested?The guy or girl playing hard to get will still give off those tell tale signs that we just mentioned.You will feel encouraged and even though they are playing hard to get, you can still talk to them and approach them.You risk getting stomped on, sacked and tackled, all for the slight chance you could get a free breakaway to the end zone, ultimately scoring a touchdown (aka, finding the love of your life).It is not news to anyone that the dating world is a game. I personally think it is immature, and I’m flat-out over it. I’m over the insecurities and the power struggles involved in the game. The topic of “the game” came up just the other night over dinner with two of my best guy friends.
