    i would lose interest. i lose interes really fast, move on really fast when someone doesnt fit me.

    didn't use it. don't want to play

    eh yes.. of course harmless play / seduction in beginning is a "must", but wasn't talking bout that.. i was talking bout when people start being seriously interested.. not when you roughly get to know one another..

    Unless it's clear you're interested then I'll assume you're not and won't bother.

    I play hard to get really bad.
    Its a bad habit, almost- I don't even realize it.
    Its more shyness than hard to get really..

    Sometimes i'm just not interested.
    Sometimes i'm interested and i'm feeling nervous...

    Either way is the same result.

    Sometimes I "play" hard to get when I'm pretty interested but want to kind of test them.. But that just comes naturally..
    And yea.. backfires all the time.. normally it just scares them away. But I keep doing it and doing it anyway..

    (I think that's the definition of insanity.. Same method, expecting a different result...)

    Hasn't anyone ever seen Grease?

    The unattainable is always infinity more attractive than abundance. Playing hard to get is a strategy to acquire scarcity. If it's done well, in whatever field, it is an excellent stategy. Done poorly, the bluff will be called.

    All objects increase their desirability by increasing their obscurity.

    have soooo fallen in love with this response Amargith HAHAHAHAHAHA
    As for me I don't really play hard to get I don't think.. however, sometimes I have been accused of it! There's a difference between playing hard to get and being shy or forgetful right??

    As for having someone do it to me... I don't mind it too much.. In fact it's quite funny especially when you can see right through it, however Edgar is right on, where's the fun in wrestling someone into a relationship don't they call that rape or something!
    ... couldn't drag me away

    While I never intentionally and knowingly play this game, it may appear that way. It wouldn't work on me either, I am not going to chase someone, as I would assume that they are not interested after all.

    It may appear that I play hard to get. I keep guys at arms length for a while if I've never thought of them in a romantic sense before or they are generally flirtatious.

    I will pursue and am not put off by aloofness so I don't mind some well-intentioned playing hard to get. As long as he is focused solely on me and isn't toying with me. Otherwise I get bored and lose interest.
