If You Play Hard To Get, She Will Discover She's Happier Without You

If You Play Hard To Get, She Will Discover She's Happier Without You

No self-respecting woman will ever fall for a man who neglects her and treats her badly because she knows she can easily find the love she's looking for within herself.

Many men buy into the foolish idea that a woman is looking for a challenge when she's looking for love. They think that by playing hard to get, her interest will be piqued and she'll chase after them, but the reality couldn't be further from that. While the more naive may readily fall for these manipulative tricks, a woman is not impressed when her man ignores her or treats her poorly in the expectation that she'll throw herself at him just to win his love. No, a woman knows that she's better off without a man who plays mind games with her and disrespects her and her needs.

1. She knows real love when she sees it

A real woman knows exactly what she's looking for in love, and she's learned from her experiences to identify real love when it's staring her in the face. She knows that some who truly loves her would never ignore her or leave her feeling unwanted. She's learned to recognize the differences between immature lovers and true partners, and she doesn't fall for men like you who waste their time manipulating her instead of actually loving her.

2. She gets what she wants from other people if you refuse to give it to her

When a woman knows she's being shortchanged by you, she doesn't hesitate to move on. She can deal with the minor heartbreak because she's been through even worse pain than you could ever imagine. She knows that there are many men out there with character who are mature enough to love her the way she wants. She won't settle for you because you've already proved you're not worth her time and her love.

3. She desires honesty from you

You should never underestimate the importance of honesty to a woman because the only way to win her heart is to be straightforward with her about your feelings. She does not need grand promises that you never intend to keep or sweet words that are empty and meaningless. She needs you to be frank with her about the good and the bad, and she wants you to be willing to take the same kind of honesty from her.

4. She will not put up with manipulative behavior

A woman of character hates men who are circuitous in their approach to love. She doesn't want to play your games, she certainly isn't falling for your deceptions. If she senses that you're afraid of committing to her and that you're only testing the water with no intention of ever taking the plunge, then she isn't going to waste her time chasing after you and pining for you. The way to a woman's heart is never through manipulation and deceit.

5. She values respect above all else

It is insulting to a woman's intelligence when you ignore her and neglect her, hoping that this will make her fall deeper in love with you. She knows that you think very little of her when you play hard to get, and that can have quite the opposite effect you intend on her. A healthy relationship is based on mutual respect, and if you fail to respect and treat her with the dignity she deserves, you don't get to be with her.

6. She does not settle for less than what she knows she deserves

A woman who has self-respect knows exactly what she needs from a relationship, and she isn't about to let you treat her any way you want. She has expectations about what a loving, caring partner is like, and she will hold you to reasonable standards. If you're inadequate or refuse to meet her expectations, then she deems you unworthy of her love and affections. When she commits to a man, she needs to be sure that he'll be there for her through thick and thin, and a man who disappears when she needs him the most is quickly eliminated.

7. She loves herself enough to be fine on her own

Finally, and most importantly, a woman isn't desperately craving your love and attention. She can manage just fine on her own, and she doesn't need to depend on you to be happy. If you fail to love her the way she needs to be loved, she can find the love she needs within herself. All the approval and validation she's seeking lie within her, and you're making a big mistake by thinking that she will beg you for your love. She's a strong, badass woman on her own, and nothing you do can take that away from her.
