Thanks to “Chasing Harry Winston” here are some things to keep in mind in order to properly snook for love this summer:
Friendly, outgoing, engaging, charming, whatever you want to call it, it still translates into available and desperate when you’re the one who initiates contact.
Let him introduce himself to you. At that point you will politely reward his politeness with a smile and some smoldering eyes, and then you will promptly dodge any of his direct questions, turn away, and become completely engaged in a conversation that does not include him.
Give a little, and then ignore. Flirt, then withhold. He’ll go crazy trying to pin you down.
Nothing works more efficiently than a maybe. It’s not a flat out rejection, but it definitely sends the message that he has to work a little harder.
I feel like there’s a thin line between playing hard to get and being a stuck up bitch. I probably come off as the desperate available girl because hey, I am desperate and available! Well, this summer I’m changing my ways- let’s see if this approach (or lack of approach) is more successful. Do you follow any dating rules?
“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect – you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break – her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.”—Bob Marley
