I Already Knew His Game. Its A Good Thing Bbecause 2 yrs later my other dies. I love reading I'm going through this crap with my husband, I'm sick of it, this helps me thanks. The "aggressive" section of the article through me over the edge. How about men learn to respect the woman they have, or remain single until they grow the hell up! Ridiculous article, sounds like a man looking for a doormat. Putting someone on hold, on a hook, withholding a person emotionally, this is to me comes across as way of control and manipulation, this is not healthy at all. If I can't communicate clearly, straight forward, sincerely, openly, honesty about what is going on in my life at the moment then that means I am not ready to enter a relationship.

I first need to do some growing on my own before bringing a human being down with me. I don't play games. I don't tolerate it either. When two people get together usually the game between them happen whether they like it or not. Obviously or not obviously. But it is how it rolls - who is the dominant and who is not or in some aspects one is Alpha other is Beta and vice versa.

So I can see how this happen. It's part of being human. Not a surprise to me when reading this article. Woman are emotional creatures; men are not. I think when it comes to their feelings for a women they have no clue what they are feeling or why. Their hearts is telling them one thing, their mind is telling them another and their gut has a third answer. Sometimes the games may not be intentional - it's just they don't know what the heck to do with the feelings they are having. Men listen up - just face the fact you're interested and just ask the girl out and get on with something.

Leaving us hanging and confused does nothing but piss us off!!! A guy who pushes a girl away when she has told him she wants to be with him is testing her to see is really wants him in her life and what move she will do next. As far as playing mind games that can really hurt someone's self esteem and shouldn't be used. Just swap all of the above to the other gender, and think of how it would be revived by men I always surprise these losers. They start catching feels for me so they start playing games because they can't handle it.

They're always afraid that I'll upgrade on them so they try to shake me up with their baby games. Then they wonder why I upgrade on them. First I have fun with them and wait for them to wait for my reaction. It's so much fun to watch them panic in wonder if they're going to lose me.

Then they start posting memes on Facebook about how women are whack. It's so much fun to watch them go through it hehehehehe!!! I would like to point out that not allowing a partner to leave the house is a sign of domestic violence. Well last night I text u rc an somebody text me back an say who is this so what does that mean.

So basically, these are all ridiculous. I don't mean the article is, but the idea that any relationship should have to go through these steps. If you're a man or woman that feels the need to "test" their partner in these moronic ways, you aren't mature enough to have a partner.

SO men really are manipulative assholes. I can't trust any of them, no way of knowing if they're just trying to mess with me or if they're a genuine, decent person. Very sad to learn how truly manipulative men are. Games are definitely par for the course now, but you wouldn't think that any male over the age of 40 would be trying to run game. I was reading your list to see if I missed anything, being that I dismissed him this week before seeing him again. He put the "s" in shady. I don't know what his real situation is, but he'd always say it was work. I guess that's what he called her - work.

Anytime a male is not responsive after a certain time or can solely be reached by text. I know many solely rely on text, but that's how somerun game. I could tell this one was complacent and used to females catering to him. I know he wanted the cookie, but I don't trust him, so that was never going to happen. I blocked all means of contact as I don't like liars and I do believe he is a liar. Now I need to block his boy who is following m on ig too. Anyway, in my own opinion, reacting poorly is acting as if you didn't notice any change in the behaviour of your partner towards you. I realize this article is aging, but I just happened upon it and appreciated the forthcoming insight.

As an educated man who isn't above 'playing games': I am interested in your insight, and opinion on what you feel should be said or done in this situation that can 'make or break it? There are so many differing views. What do you feel is 'reacting poorly? And I must add, while people love to hate the player, but even the haters participate and fall in love with the game Women over analyse way too much and that's probably the reason why it's so easy to play mind games on them. Ok girlfriends, I'm a very luck guy, most of my friends are women. I am not gay. But women way over analyze.

Here is a very good example of what is usually going on. We had made plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it. Conversation wasn't flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn't say much. I asked him what was wrong; He said, 'Nothing. He said he wasn't upset, that it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry about it.

On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled slightly, and kept driving. I can't explain his behavior I don't know why he didn't say, love you, too. He just sat there quietly, and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent. Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed. About 15 minutes later, he came to bed. But I still felt that he was distracted, and his thoughts were somewhere else.

He fell asleep — I cried. At 29 years, methinks that a wrong decision 'cause you've still a load of some more useful years ahead to enjoy your life! These types of passages make me upset cuz they are all true. Only difference is my little guy friend likes to play the reverse psychology game with me and all of a sudden give me a silent treatment no calls no nothing. And then im sitting there trying to figure out what i did wrong meanwhile hes really the one in his feelings because hes trying to do what he wants to do to make me upset but deep down trying to make himself feel like a mack smh.

My man sent me a song by Julio Iglesias to old the girls I've loved before. Is he breaking up with me. When a guy plays mind games, I feel confused and stressed out and I don't trust him emotionally anymore. I don't want to stick around and take more hurtful tests. At that point the guy has either come across as scary or emotionally abusive.

My advice to anyone who is dating someone who plays mind games is to run! Run as fast as you can in the opposite direction because this person will destroy you and everything you are. Only give your heart to those who respect you and are worthy of it.

For Survival: Understanding Mind Games Men Play in Relationships

I was in this position and it showed it's ugly head 11 months into what carried on to be a 5 year relationship from hell. Out of it last February and I'm only just started to feel my normal self again. I grew up around manipulative people which, let's face it, is what you are if you play "mind games" , so I can spot an attempt at manipulation a mile away. In fact, I even inherited the trait, and have to work extra hard NOT to use it. Regardless of the source, whenever I see someone trying to manipulate me person, media, etc. Ain't nobody got time for that.

I didn't date around a lot before I got married thank God! Would YOU want it done to you? Not would you "mind" or would you think it's "fair," but would you WANT someone to treat you that way? Because you think you can get away with it? I guarantee you someday you'll encounter that special someone who makes you wanna drop all your games and just have an honest relationship YOU did that to countless others, and it was "okay," but now suddenly it's not?

BTW, when I say "you," I don't mean specifically the author, just "a person. Pure and simple, these are all examples of abuse. It's all a sickening, sad, pathetic, insiduous self serving and weak ploy. Men who play such games shouldn't be allowed on the field. A strong, assertive, self-aware and healthy woman would not put up with any of it. Grown people have no business playing childish games with a person's emotions. The best way to deal with a person who plays The Game like this is to never get involved with them in the first place.

The whole, "Lets just go with the flow" is sheer. If a man can't just get it over with an fuck me already, he'll be sitting on the curb with yesterday's trash. I'm a busy woman with no patience for bullshit. Instead of trying to get her to show you some devotion, why not show HER some?

All take and no give Overall, we all know it is JUST a game I'm always in, but I'm always a loner The real struggle for mind games is what if they both really start to grow feelings for each other? Will it still be a game? It's the stage where complexity begins And trust me, with time, you will find out the whole relationship is gonna engulf you, that is, if it hasn't already.

I suggest you talk to him. Let him know that his suspicions and constant poke nosing is killing you. The earlier you do that, the better for you. Controlling and jealous men can be very dangerous and if care is not taken, out of so much fear of him, you might find out that you cannot even separate from him, even if you want to He's just too difficult.

He loves me, he is a child at heart who loves to be pampered with love now and then, but sometimes his need for pamper takes a toll on me. Sometimes I hate to let him know every little detail bcoz i like a sense of freedom. Its very subtle which he thinks if I dont give him those little details, I have something to hide, as if I don't love him as much as he does. I love him but I dont like him to be putting his nose into every little detail. He would care to to which people, especially guys that I talk when we are in a long distance. How do I tell him that I love him and I also have to stay busy through the day.

We dont have to break up only because we are far away and busy. How do I let him know that we must not compromise our careers and have faith, because a greater degree of online engagement will not only hamper my career but his too. Once someone picks up that a person is like that they should leave them in the dust where they belong. They don't respect themselves.

I'm 39 yrs old, and I'm 4ft 8 inches tall. So I get mistaken for a young person, and I find that young men play this game where they stare at you, and it seems like they expect you to notice them back. I'm sure it's a game they're playing. Secondly I don't care to be around young people, and none of the guys from my generation ever did things like that. So I find it strange that today's younger generation thinks it's okay to play this type of game.

Women this is a curse to shut up your worn, men are clueless on these facts because they don't give birth. Stay away from guys who does this is a lack of respect for any woman and young adult worn. They have no idea it causing stress and my best friend lost a baby due to these same sick actions, Africa men play well these games, due to it their culture to see women and young adults as objects but clueless to the harm it causing, destroying their own women and God's health way of carrying her baby Be Love and do so and you will reap what u sow.

My doctor said anyone playing with your emotions, stay away from them it can cause miscarriage, still births They are messing with those same emotions you use to connect with your baby in your worn, stay away from fools. This is the way God make it to communicate with your baby in your stomach I don't know if he's playing mind games with you or not, although to be frank with you, it sounds more like a threat to me. We started to chat onlion we were good friends but suddenly he started to say things like i wanna control you and now he threatens to stalk me. Anybody who would be deliberately deceitful to someone just to see how they react doesn't deserve to keep that someone.

And nobody should put up with any of that crap. You don't have to be in such a hurry to see what's inside somebody. If they trust you they'll show you. If you play games to get it they'll never trust you like they would otherwise. And you don't deserve their trust. If you want to know who somebody is wait for the circumstances of life to bring it out, don't manufacture your own. I started to chat with a guy onlion and now its over a year.

You might be right but then again, you and I know it's different strokes for different folks. No body has time for this. U could lose the spouse of your dreams , playing games Most of these reasons for the actions are not the true underlying reasons. For instance, a man who gives the silent treatment to a woman isn't testing her.

It's that he doesn't know how to show his anger. And a man who is violent is not testing a woman either. That's just abuse of power. Additionally, suggesting women should "relax" and tolerate this sort of behavior while remaining strong , while yes - would keep this man around - is not sane advice.

A woman who see these things in a man should get out of the relationship. These are the signs of narcissism That's the right advice! A man with healthy self esteem does not engage in such behavior. Study psychology and you will learn what's behind this behavior.

What a huge stinking log of a shitty article. Any of these qualities are a red flag of the emotionally immature manipulator. If a woman or man observes this kind of behavior from their partner, RUN. But don't forget to ask tricks are for kids. I wouldn't waste much time on a guy like that. Not even if he was really, really great in bed.

The problem is still going on I am afraid. A man I met a couple of weeks ago have texted me and very intensely so, just to suddenly disappear in thin air. He did send me a text saying "I am not going to respond to any text or mails for a week. This bothers me because we are supposed to go on a week end trip in a week, and now I am unsure about what to do. You know what, Ginger? After taking some considerable time to look at the whole picture, I'll say that you are right. There is another word for what you're describing, it's called abuse. There's nothing funny about it.

I read all of the comments and it wasn't just women who disagreed with you there were men also. However, you wouldn't understand their position because you are from a 3rd world country Nigeria. Your country is behind developed countries in different areas including women's rights. Although there are men in America who would practice your suggestions most of the women wouldn't stand for it. Also, many men here wouldn't either.

Especially, since we've had a feminist movement here that lobbied for the rights of women and brought the emotional, physical, and mental abuse of women to the light. I don't know if your country has been through that. You probably don't even know what emotional abuse is.

Because if you did, you would clearly see that many of the "games" mentioned in your article follows under that category. Well, S, all I can say is that not everything a man does to you should be seen as mind games. In fact, one of the easiest ways to turn yourself into an emotional wreck is by reading meanings into just about anything your man does. So please desist from that. My ex showed signs of testing. But how far will they go? Some days would go past and i would not hear from him. I text him casually "hey, how are you" he responded well "im good, how're you?

So i was supportive and said goodnight. He didn't say goodnight. At one point earlier in our relationship, he asked if i missed him - cos we hadnt messaged in 2 days, i responded "it was only 2 days. Do whatever pleases you. Now, imagine if I start attacking you for doing just that. How would you feel? Remember what the very first commenter stated three years ago and I quote: Someone from somewhere who does not even know anything about me comes here and starts calling me all sorts of names….

Well, I understand why you girls who are doing that are doing so, so now permit me to let you know why it amuses me. Well, so let me tell you how this thing goes. If you think you can anonymously sit back in the comfort of your room behind your computer and call me names, well, I guess I can do the same thing and if that eventually makes you boil with anger, well, I guess it will surely make me smile. What I hate is stupidity. And stupidity is when you consciously miss the whole point and totally ignore the message—no matter how remotely helpful it might be to you—and then you turn around and start attacking the messenger!

Your opinions are bizarre, though mind games do occur, but buying into them and keeping them going back and forth solves nothing. It's like stupid kids taunting each other on the playground. You clearly get off on working women up into anger. THAT is quite the mind game! You obviously hate women and when you tell them to keep the angry comments coming, that tells us a lot about YOU but nothing about other men and real relationships. I advise the women including myself responding to this topic to do what they should to other mind-game guys: As for what to do when you run into more of them, ignore and move on.

Don't waste your time doing battle with their sick mentality.

There actually ARE good men out there. Just value yourself and the "gamers", who have no lives, will not get to you. DO beware of the high potential for violence when you don't give these babies the attention they crave so desperately! I just wanted to say that I looked up this article because my boyfriend was all there are articles on facebook blah blah blah so I figured I'd look one up. And I just want men to know that there are For instance he's all I'm going to my moms house and you can't stop me.

Me I'm all crying on his shoulder please don't I'm sorry I'm such an a hole. But when I leave my tears are gone and I'm excited for booze and whatever else I get myself into. Real men and women don't play games. But don't try playing a real woman.. She'll let you believe what you want and get hers however she feels the need to the second she sees it. Sometimes the players aren't really ahead of the game. In fact, I can easily recommend a very good and professional psychiatrist and psychologist for your ex right away.

His charges are moderately fair. I have been trying to mend things with him for weeks but he just keeps on with these demented and cruel games.

Why Do Men Play Mind Games? Why Do Men Mess With Your Head And How To Get Him To Stop

GAMES are played by innocent children not psychotic, fucked-up men like the author of this article. Awesome, I've been reading this thread for many years and don't get tired of it. I've also grown more mature meanwhile and must say, Games are with the flirty guy standing at the bar flashing his smile and jokes - the rest of the evening is with the genuine man with who I go home. This is all b. Real women don't have time for mind games, real women prefer men who are straight forward and know exactly what they want, a strong man who'l ask questions and voice his concerns instead of "testing" you.

Its hard to let go of someone you really liked but after u let go you'll miss him and after that you'll get over it. We've all lost people who meant a lot to us to something as big as death and we got through it. Losing someone to a break up should be a piece of cake. So in conclusion, all I have 2 say is Don't waste your time on these childish games you'l eventually find a real man who's really into you and has the same values as you, in the meantime dont rush anything.

God has perfect timing it will happen when the time is right! I have to laugh I know who I am and what I'm worth. My man tried most of these games with me because he's always done this with women. He's a player, rake, womanizer, romeo, cad, all those names would fit him well.

I am a player too I know these games well. I chew up and spit out players ; So, with both of us being "players" we managed to find real and true and lasting love! Come to think of it, why would I do that? Listen, I play mind games just for fun. I've said that before. I play mind games with everybody. I enjoy making you wonder. I love and want to see your reaction when I push your buttons. I just love making you think plus listening in to that cranking sound of your busy brain as I make you do the mental gymnastic over and over.

Yeah, I thrive on mental stimulation! And yes, in relationships, I also use mind games to check how emotional and independent you can get. Ergo, I just love and will always prefer independent and strong willed women over the clingy, insecure, crybaby types. I have so many other things of interest to do than seeking for some woman or women to control. Yes, Miss moi is right. Keep the fire alive. Come up with your own games and pranks. Show me that your awesome brainpower.

OMG, I love these things. I will stay tuned! You recognize the pattern there? And then you start hurting. Just look how you angrily and hurriedly posted three good times just to get your one point across! And you know what? Some buttons are just too easy to push! Hmmm… three good years after writing this hub and the fun is still this unbelievably undiluted. Okay baby, now listen. Something you should know. Everybody is not the same.

You need to come out of your own world first to see this for yourself. You may not be down with mind games, I know, but trust me on this; there are so many women who are. They just love the drama, the suspense and the mystery. They want a challenge. Babe, please wake up and look up and stop being stereotypical! I wonder what makes you think mind games is strictly a woman affair only.

Men and women equally play mind games. And like I stated earlier, they all play it for different reasons. See it for what it is and not for what you want it to be. Of course, I know you do! And please make sure you always dump and drop all of them on their silly big heads hard on a concrete floor, okay?

Also while you are at it, please also remember to kick out at their heads very hard. Smash it against the wall. Bust, split or crack it open. Do whatever you like—with all of them bad guys in your life. You have my support any day any time, okay? Then repeat as many times as you want! And hey… wait… just make sure you climb faster and higher this time around, okay… hello…? Are you listening to me…? On the other hand i understand how some "games " happen naturally when the man instinctlevely feels the need to see whether this girl is the one for him A man can be genuine but feels the pressure of the relationship and needs to know that the girl is not going to walk all over him by asking constantly he does as she wants etc Ultimately, when he starts playing games, it means, he wants an excuse to check out eventually at some point It is a sad reality.

Most players are not happy, because in order to keep a girl, they have to play games and trust me, it is not easier on them either because they work double on their "skills" to test the water That's when, the "unecessary"game turns into something toxic For women, we never know truly a man until he starts being himself. The funny dynamic is, a woman feels challenged, we endure, try to show him how we care, because that's our nature..

Two can play at that game Mr. I'm Kinda going through this now and instead of acting concerned, I will be flirting right in front of him with the boy toy who works the desk, in a very subtle way. Last time he did this game playing with me I made him feel so stupid lol. He knows I have options. He's gonna have to get past his insecurities if he wants my loyalty ;- ;-.

Let's think about it, isn't it a shame to have had a woman to dump you before you could even kiss her goodbye? In fact, it is very pathetic! It is even more pathetic when you have fallen for her, every thoughts about her will make you desire her more and more, and you know all these are just wishful thinkings of yours. You really got me there with that very statement!

Mind Games Men Like Playing on Women | PairedLife

You must be such a very strong woman for you to have realized how the 'game' is being played. Kudos to you but just so you know, the 'game' keeps on changing so your best bet is to keep getting smarter and smarter so as to remain one or two or three steps ahead Until we meet each other, hopefully, someday, who knows, and cancel each other out, huh? I know you'll like that and I know I'll like that too 'cause I really need and want to fall harder and harder for someone like thee who knows the 'game' inside out!

I've had one good-looking guy interested in me and asked me out to a party 1 month after we first met. Just like many typical insecure guys out there who is unashamed of pulling these mind games, he blatantly went intimate with another girl in the party just to see if I care enough to intervene.

Unlike many girls out there who would succumb, I purposely looked toward his direction and gave him a smile, just to let him know that I'm aware of his act, and continued chatting with people I met in the party, of course, I maintained my calm and confident demeanor.

He found me sexy for not giving shit, and was definitely impressed by my confidence. He asked me out for another date. As a woman with dignity, I rejected without giving any explanations. Now, he has been asking around about me I'm not friends with him on Facebook and obviously, he sees me as a challenge and wants to get me but unfortunately, he's just going to fall harder and harder whenever he thinks of me. So guys, don't ever think that mind games can get you what you want when it comes to any women like me, cuz' we are smart enough to see through your insecurities and your old tricks, and we'll fucking ditch you and move on, leaving you desperate for us.

Alright directgirl, in my own opinion, a hook up might pretend that part simply because he does not trust that you are just okay with the sex alone. Your hinting that will even make him more confused. You'll agree with me that quite unlike men, I'd say most women want the sex plus the intimacy.

So pretense might as well be a result of trying to fake that supply of intimacy so as to get laid. Naturally, people like to obtain 'favors' from others. At times, the process involved could be covert or subtle manipulation in the form of persuasion or pretense. Wanting you to swoon over them is just another way of furthering their agenda because you will be hypnotized, sort of, and you'll be subconsciously convinced that you need them the more and thus, you will be so much ready and willing to be satisfying their selfish needs because they know that in most cases, we feel good whenever we do something for someone we love.

Here's a question for you related to this but outside of the context of dating or a committed relationship.

Why will a hook up pretend he's romantically into you? Even if you hint that you're fine with just sex? Why do people who clearly ONLY have you over when they are trying to satisfy their needs still want you to swoon over them? Would you say the game it's similar or has a different purpose? Ouch, recent comments are tough eh. There needs to be a little game but the limit between play and pain is too risky. This is textbook emotional abuse and it's quite disgusting that you're endorsing it, and admit to even partaking in it yourself. Only a man-child would even entertain the idea of or see any reason to treat a woman like this, and those men certainly aren't worth anyone's time.

Pulling this bullshit on any woman with integrity and self respect will disengage her from you before the first phase of your mind games operation is even complete. I personally would dump you so fast your head would spin. See of remaining comments. Other product and company names shown may be trademarks of their respective owners.

For more information on managing or withdrawing consents and how we handle data, visit our Privacy Policy at: Some men really love playing mind games on women. I know I do. Here are the three main reasons people use deceitful ploys: The first reason why a man might play them is just to test his woman—her love, loyalty, emotional capability, understanding, and intelligence. A man may also play them when he really wants to obtain something from his significant other and knows that the only way he can make her consider doing it is by messing with her emotions. These guys are what I call the real players.

These real players or masters of the game have recognized how vulnerable emotions can make people, and they are using this shortcoming to their advantage. Yet other guys play games simply because—now, you must wait as I look over my shoulders to make sure no angry girl is close by because of what I am about to say next. Listen, a man may also be playing games simply because he knows it can be fun. Such a man may purposely stir the waters just to watch the fish react. Sometimes putting someone off balance can be satisfying.

Mind Games and Their Hacks. Are you interested in knowing how he could be springing that mind game on you? Based off of my own experience, here are some flags: He drops you back at your place, and leaves without saying a single word about how stunning you looked that evening. He is purposely not paying a compliment, even though he knows that it is all that you want to hear from him. Try not to overreact, because he may have done this to test your patience. If you throw a tantrum, it will convince him that you are a difficult person to get along with.

The next time you meet him, ask him if he noticed you the other day. However, don't say it angrily, rather, put it across subtly. You wait for his call or message, but it is as if he has vanished into thin air. You see that he is active on Facebook, but still not replying to your messages. You try to call him, but he doesn't answer your calls. You keep on wondering if you did something wrong to hurt him on the last date. These thoughts start disturbing you, and you desperately look for answers. You imagine that he has found someone else, or he does not think you are attractive enough.

You are deeply hurt by his behavior, and so you send him one last nasty text, telling him why he doesn't deserve you anyway. This seals the deal of your breakup. He knows very well that you will get a panic attack when something like this happens. Still, he wants to wait and watch the fun.

While he may be genuinely busy, overreacting to this situation can seriously backfire on your relationship. Patience is the key to surviving this mind game. Do not be in a haste to jump to conclusions or accuse him of anything. Get all the facts right before taking any decision. The 'I Need Space' Game. Boyfriends use this phrase when they feel claustrophobic in their relationship, or need a change.

However, women become restless and anxious, as they know that it would, in most cases, lead to a breakup. So, they start wondering what went wrong, or what was it that would have changed the scenario. Guys know very well that when they use this phrase, you will feel the need to be with them even more. Try to give him the space he needs. This will also tell him that you can survive easily without this relationship. Even after giving him space for a considerable number of days, if he doesn't turn up, confront him about your relationship status.

This conversation can be a maker or breaker, so watch your words carefully. I guess most girls must have had such boyfriends at some point in time, who claimed that their friends didn't approve of their relationship. Many guys try to create a rift between their friends and girlfriends, by telling both the parties stories about possessiveness of the other person.

This creates resentment and anger between both, their girlfriends and friends. They start hating each other, and the boyfriend only keeps adding fuel to the fire. He will love to sit back and watch the fun of the tug-of-war over him, between his girlfriend and friends. Don't give him a chance to manipulate you in this fashion. Right from the beginning, have cordial relations with his friends.

Make them your friends. In fact, you should be so friendly, that if a dispute occurs between your beau and yourself, they will take your side. Even if there are misunderstandings between you and his friends, you can take the initiative to bury the hatchet. So, you meet this wonderful person on Facebook, and you chatted with him day and night.

Both of you start feeling that you have met your soulmates. He tells you that he is into finance. You decide to meet up, and the date goes very well. You both get involved in a strong relationship. Only a few days later, you find out from a third person that he has lied to you about his career, and actually owns a store.
