You had a fantastic time on your date—and he did, too. “You may never know for sure what's up with him,” says Marla Martenson, a matchmaker, author and motivational speaker.
In this article, I’m focusing on the way men and women lie to their dates and end up leading them on when they’re not actually interested.What’s one of the most frequent lies men and women use?Then I wouldn’t hear from him for 4 or 5 days and most of the time in between, I was reaching out to him via text or phone.I got tired of the hot and cold behavior, and I texted him (as he never seemed to want to call me or really spend any time with me) and told him I was getting the hint, I wouldn’t be bothering him anymore.For the purpose of this article, we will be focusing on men and the mind games they play. Like when you’re doing it to save someone from a bad relationship.
Men are genetically programmed to take care of women. However, that is still up for discussion because playing mind games suggests duplicity and dishonesty.Cue the sirens, folks, because the first game we’ll discuss is a true contagion in the dating world. Sugar-Coated Lying Early in dating, men and women lie constantly.Some of the lies are little white lies (“I love exercising”) while others are serious lies that no one should ever be repeating (“I’m single,” when you’re really not).Unfortunately, those of us who don’t see the benefits that mind games offer tend to use it for devious purposes – specifically, relationships.No one is exempt from this transgression because both men and women are guilty of playing mind games.In person, he’d say things like, “I really like you a lot”, “I enjoy your company, we have fun together”, and “You’re really easy to talk to, it makes it very easy for me to buy you a gift”.
