They don’t call it the dating game for nothing. How you play it can really determine who holds all the cards in the relationship and whether or not you turn into that clingy, needy, soon to be dumped girlfriend.
Don’t get Hung Up On Looks
Just take a look around you, there are plenty of happy couples who don’t exactly match up on the same levels in terms of looks. There are many women who struggle to find dates, whether it’s because they’re too tall, too fat, too small, too whatever. Be realistic. If you only want that Alpha male sportsman with the hard chest and 6 pack abs, even if you do find him, you’ll always feel insecure.
Play Hard to Get
Now, I don’t mean stringing along men you have no interest in. That game is a waste of everyone’s time, don’t be an egotistical idiot. But if a man comes along that you do fancy, playing hard to get gives him something to fight for. Let him woo you and give him the chance to try to sweep you off your feet, before any other fanciable man does.
Don’t rush into sex
A woman’s supposed ability to get laid easily or quickly doesn’t correspond with her desirability or attractiveness. Don’t be feel the need to give out sex so readily. And please don’t have sex with a man in an attempt to get him to love you.
Speak up when you feel you’re not treated fairly. Don’t be a doormat. If you feel disrespected or ignored, make it clear that you will go no further, for instance, you won’t be going out together, until there is a change. Then stick to your guns. If he doesn’t not address the issue and is happy to just move on without you, then you were going to lose this game anyway. Better sooner than later.
Pick Your Battles
Don’t sweat the small stuff. Seriously. If you want to fight about every little thing, you become that dreaded nag of a girlfriend. It’s also very tiring to be so combative. When you do have an issue to raise, he will be more likely to pay attention because he knows it must be important to you.
If you stop giving your power away in relationships, you may just have a shot at playing it right. Honestly, women are stronger and more intelligent than men in the dating game. Play it to your advantage, girls!
