Don't drag things on too long, objective here is to get her to trust you and realize you're not an axe murderer. Do a little kino to warm her up and then slooowwly move in for it. After about 3 months she should have said something to the effect of wanting an exclusive relationship with you.

If you suspect that your significant other may be playing one on you, all is not lost. If you understand how and why he is pushing you, you will be able to play the player at his own game and come out ahead.

If you're wondering what a mind game is, they come in many forms but always involve one thing—sending mixed signals to toy with someone's emotions.

This article will list the reasons people play tricks, then explain the most common ones and how to win them.

by Poosy Marauder When you meet a woman and build a relationship (to whatever extent you want) there are a series of critical tests that she has to be put through. If she doesn't respond in a receptive way she's failed the first test. After a suitable amount of small talk (timing is important - I aim for about 10 mins) you say, "Listen, I have to leave now but you should give me your home number so we can talk some more some other time." Some guys are sticklers for the home number. Work phones are not OK unless she doesn't have either of the above. Opinions differ on the mandatory waiting period but I say 3 or 4 days max. Your objective here is not to get to know her better...

And your objective is to administer those tests as smoothly as possible. Email address is not OK unless she is foreign and does not speak English well.

NEVER let her take control and tell you what the two of you should do. Warm her up with a bit of humor then TELL HER what you have in mind. NO giving away any unsolicited information if you can help it and definitely no negative info. NO hugging or smooching cheeks - that's for your Grandma. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER be the first one to say, "I love you." Show it to her with actions, not words. Don't overdo it and DON'T be predictable about anything. NEVER be the one to ask for it, it has to come from her.
