    Hey was just curious about what everyone is like when they see someone.

    When it comes to meeting someone that you like or the beginning of a relationship or seeing someone do you play games or are you a person who just gets on with it?

    Some people I know leave it ages to contact or don't contact unless the other person does first. To me that is playing games and I don't think it's very healthy to play it that way. With me, if I like someone I won't hesitate in contacting them - I don't go overboard and text every minute of the day but I don't believe in the whole playing games. If you like someone then go for it.

    What are you guys like when it comes to this sort of thing?

    I don't. Frankly, I'm not the kind of guy who can afford to - I'm terrible at first impressions so if I tried to wait for someone I'd met to contact me first, I'd probably be waiting forever.

    I don't prefer playing games but I am not the kind of girl who contacts men first. I wait for them to approach me and so far all the men I have liked have approached me first.

    Not really. I used to play cricket, but obviously this years weather has put paid to that. I do bike about 120 miles a week though...

    Coat, hat, taxi and gone...


    being serious now..I do play games, but its inadvertent. I do it unconciously, and then feel a proper pillock a few hours later fo doing it.

    I think that girls seem to 'play games' more, but thats just from a male point-of-view.

    Thanks for replying, it's interesting seeing what other people do.

    In the past I waited for guys to come to me, then when they did I would act cool and uninterested - soon learnt when they got fed up and moved on.

    Now I won't hesitate in contacting if I like them, I don't care if I come across keen because to be honest if they are interested in you they won't care. If I want something I will fight for it.

    Although I am wondering if my way of thinking is hindering my chances with guys, most guys seem to come across keen then back off totally. This whole dating business is mind-boggling!

    yeah. you have to know when to stop... in my experience, the aloof attitude works for a bit but if you're acting like that all the time and not making an effort, they just move on. so, y'know, you don't have to always be the first to text/call/ask out but a little more human-like interaction wouldn't hurt :p:

    Games are a good method of getting kicked to the kerb in short order. I wont waste my time with someone yanking my chain for the sheer ****ing hell of it.

    I'd rather be honest than play hard to get.
