though there is no body of evidence to support this.Another criticism is that because The Rules advise rarely returning phone calls and other such hard-to-get dating methods, some men may have trouble telling the difference between a woman who is genuinely not interested (or not interested anymore) and one who is genuinely interested, thus leading to misunderstandings and stalkers; not only for women using The Rules, but any man who believes all women are playing similar games even when they are not.Proponents of the methods offered in the book point to The Rules as having positive results for both men and women.They represent the point of view that men enjoy being the aggressor and are inspired to treat women better who choose behaviors which set up boundaries and slow down the courtship process.Someone who is uninterested will just leave you hanging.
They will call when they are thinking of you and if they say they will meet for coffee then that’s what they will do.
The guy or girl playing hard to get will still give off those tell tale signs that we just mentioned.
You will feel encouraged and even though they are playing hard to get, you can still talk to them and approach them.
The results show that those seeking a long term relationship had a better success rate when playing hard to get. Our subconscious is probably telling us that if your prospective partner is willing to put in the hard work, then they are probably in for the long haul.
The problem with going down this path is that in all likelihood your love interest will be pulling the same stunt.
