Games Boys Play
Q: There's a guy that seems to be sending all the signals that he likes me but he never asks me out on a date. We have hung out together but he always makes sure it's casual. Should I ask him out? Do guys play games like this?
A: He's either too shy to ask you out or is playing games with you. Ask him out and if nothing else you'll figure out where things stand. Guys respect women who know what they want.
A: Guys have a lot of confidence issues when it comes to asking ladies out on dates; often this is due to past "strike outs." My feeling is, it's the 21st century, so why not just ask him out on an obvious romance-themed date (dinner, drinks, hot tub?). If he balks you will know. If he laughs like a fool and starts trying to touch you during casual conversation, you will know he is yours to toy with.
A: Guys most definitely play games like this. My gut says he’s really not interested and is just looking for an ego stroke. I wouldn’t ask him out, I would stop giving him the attention he seems to be looking for. He’ll either wither away or come begging like a puppy dog if he’s truly interested.
A: If you ask him out you'll find out if he's interested or not. At a certain point, you realize that they can only say no… and at least then you've got more information than you started with. And if he says no you can date his brother instead.
