You two “magically” end up right next to each other and conversation strikes.
What made this person more attractive to you than the nice guy or girl who was buying you drinks all night, asking about your college major and saying how they’d love to go on a date with you? You knew you could have the person who cared, you knew they were interested, so you put them on the back burner, saving them for later, perhaps.
Usually, once the game is over and the chase is gone, we get bored, and it’s on to the next one.
Once we’ve finally got what we wanted, it’s a 50 percent chance that we will either get bored and start searching for the next thing “out of our reach,” or we will realize that the chase was worth it, and this is the person we’ve been searching for.
So, when does the chase turn into a "relationship" or go to the next step?
The success stories here are few and far between, but I’m sure somehow it works out. Not everyone is single — the relationships had to start somewhere.
And when they follow this advice, it’s funny how much harder the guy starts to chase them, and I’m sure it goes vice versa, as well.But then, once I’ve invested my time and efforts into someone, I stop playing by the rules and I think to myself, “You know what? They were mysterious and giving you the right amount of attention to intrigue you but not enough that you knew you had it in the bag.You two made eye contact throughout the night, and you even thought about going up to them and buying them a drink, but you held back because you remembered the dating rules.They’re “not ready” to settle down, or they’re just not worth your time, anyway. You obviously cared a lot more about them than the person constantly playing “hard to get."To be completely honest, I don’t really like "the unknown" or when things are left up in the air.I like knowing what's up, even if it is the painful truth that hey, maybe this person actually doesn't like me at all.We like the chase, we play the game and we give in to the game.
