Getting to know someone is already filled with many emotions! There’s the excitement of new, the fun and flirty spirit that comes out naturally as you discover how much you have in common with his representative. But at some point usually right after you settle on favorite foods and righteous before the 4th date you begin to wonder whether or not this relationship could go to the altar. Or is he just being agreeable and chilvarous to get to a known horizontal ending. He texts and talks and then goes radio silent. Then you start to wonder is he really busy or is he playing games. Here’s 3 ways you can tell if he has potential or nah…
Words and Actions Don’t Match
Does he make grand promises with his mouth but his actions always seem to fall short? Schedules get crazy for sure when two busy people are trying to connect but if he is always SAYING he wants to see you and you have made it clear you want to see him too but plans are NEVER made he is probably playing games! Throw out some dates and times that you know you will be free if he doesn’t take it forward from there then move on. He may be playing games.
More Surface than Substance
Initial getting-to-know you conversations can easily stay at the surface level but at some point you and your new beau will need to get deeper. Maybe not sharing your deepest darkest secrets but definitely conversations beyond your favorite color. Admittedly when trying to figure out what to say to keep the conversation interesting but not scare him away can feel Which can be awkward at times. You already know how we feel about playing emotional games but real games can help here! You can tell a whole lot about a person when you play an actual game with them. Strategy games are a great way to get to know how someone thinks. Provocative conversation games like “The War On Love” spark real, relevant and revealing discussions. It is a fun way to get below the surface and start talking about things that are truly important when it comes to love, sex and relationship.
Disappearing and Reappearing Acts
Magicians are cool except when you are attempting to date a guy who has the disappearing act down. You are going along just fine and without warning he stops calling or texting. You go into the initial panic of is he okay, did something happen, and just when you convince yourself that it’s him not you. Out of the blue you get that dreaded “WYD” text. Huh? WTH? He offers no explanation and worst attempts to reconvene the conversation as if you had just spoke to him an hour ago. It really is NOT you it’s HIM. Feel free to ask him about the disappearance and if his admission doesn’t involve a plausible emergency or something that disconnected him from the grid - he may be playing games! Keep it moving there are plenty of men who only play games that come in a package.
