Keeping The Girl
This sounds like awful advice but, in a weird twist, our expert says it’s bang on. “A lot of women are deeply insecure and will devalue a guy who treats them well because they don’t feel they deserve it.” But she warns there’s a fine line between him playing it cool and treating you poorly. Dr McMillan says a guy playing hard to get because he likes you is fine, but it’s a “see ya later” scenario if he’s disrespectful.
Dr McMillan thinks the advice comes from a good place, but it’s not overly wise. “If a guy is attractive to a woman, she won’t be put off by going to coffee or socialising with him and a group of friends – those scenarios are good ways for women to get to know a guy without pressure.” As for being an a**hole? “He may end up not having romance.”
