Play hard to get.
If you’re in the world of dating, or were at some point in your life — you’ve definitely heard the relationship advice that tells you to play hard to get.
Don’t look too interested.
Don’t call for at least 3 days.
Make sure they don’t know how much you like them.
Don’t text back right away.
But is this relationship advice any good?
Play Hard To Get
There’s a reason why this is common relationship advice. We want to play the game of relationships, and make ourselves feel like we’re in control rather than feeling like someone is in control of us.
But there are two major problems that the “play hard to get” mentality creates in relationships.
Today on the podcast, I’m explaining both of those problems and why this is actually BAD relationship advice, and what you should do instead. Don’t be fooled by the play hard to get game…because you’re going to end up losing in the end.
