I just don't get it - why do people like to play games when it comes to relationships? Why be so surreptitious to the point of ambiguity? Why move back and forth as though we're in some mating dance?
I'm not saying that I don't enjoy being coy - in fact, I get intimidated with people who are too forthcoming too quick. But it distresses me when a guy drops major hints everyday and behaves in a manner that implies something more than platonic friends but retreats at the slightest hint of interest shown by me. I'm just responding to you, for crying out loud! And when I decide to protect myself by keeping a distance, he claims that I am cold. Wha..?!?!!
*sigh* I shan't bother. It really isn't worth it. Or maybe I've been out of the game so long that I forgot what it was like. Do I *really* have to go through this?
