Quite often this type of person just needs someone to talk to or to give them advice.
You might feel like their best friend and that things are going well, but it’s possible that you are just a feel good friend that makes them feel better about themselves.
The uninterested person, if they have agreed to a date will not have a clear idea of when you can meet again in the future.
It’s actually possible that they will just stand you up and leave you waiting alone at the restaurant.
You could end up missing out on the love of your life because neither of you was willing to admit your interest in the other.
So maybe it’s time to drop the mind games and get back to some good, honest romance and leave “playing it cool” to the Danny Zukos of this world.
The results show that those seeking a long term relationship had a better success rate when playing hard to get. Our subconscious is probably telling us that if your prospective partner is willing to put in the hard work, then they are probably in for the long haul.
The problem with going down this path is that in all likelihood your love interest will be pulling the same stunt.
The hard to get player will take a genuine interest in your life.
They may still not seem 100%, keen and will try to maintain the act of indifference, but the personal questions they ask give them away.
If you’ve tried to arrange a date, but it has been cancelled, the person playing hard to get will have a genuine reason for not showing up.
