Playing cat and mouse dating
When you make it a bit harder for a suitor to get your attention, you are perceived as having greater value as a partner, and the challenge is a turn-on.
It was thereby found that playing hard to get can absolutely increase attraction.
According to NBC, studies have determined playing hard to get results in meeting a "long-term" partner and establishing a committed relationship.
Another experiment revealed if you’re a woman who’s not looking for a relationship, but rather casual sex, there is no benefit to playing hard to get.
Cat-and-mouse is a natural high in the dating scene, and the rules of playing hard to get seem to be as follows: A gal or guy feels inclined to give off a somewhat "uninterested" vibe.
It’s a masterful display that says “I’m desirable” without appearing to be an easy catch.
It should be fun for both sides and is never (in any situation) attractive to be stuck up.

When I recapture it immediately, it will be trembling with fear, a prisoner to my designs. It’s not that I have anything personal against mice.Interestingly, a survey determined that when someone does not appear to be so available, the more likely a potential partner will want to spend time and money on them.Some things to keep in mind…Cat-and-mouse play is all fun and games until someone gets hurt.Hard to get will only pan out when interest has already been detected, even if it is a slight interest.People who played hard to get landed the date or relationship over those who made it too easy.
A study focusing on men found that women are generally drawn to guys when they did not know where they fell on the rating scale.
