Both men and women play Mind Games. To some it's just that, A Game. Others have made an art of it. Women play mind games to keep men guessing and also to make them jealous. Men play them when they are not really serious about a woman and also when they are insecure. They simply want to have some fun and are generally not bothered about other person's feelings.
Mind Games actually cause a lot of friction and serious problems between men and woman. There are women who like leading men on making them think they are interested in a certain guy and when the guy begins to get serious, the woman loses all interest. What happens then is she starts to ignore him or act like she does not know what he is talking about kind. It's mostly the youngger, attractive woman who plays this type of game. Knowing she can get any man she likes, makes her want to experiment and see how many she can catch; Just like an angler who once having eaten the fish, throws it back, because for him it was the chase that mattered.
When it comes to Men, mind games I think is played by the insecure and immature man who does not have a lot of self confidence in himself. They want the woman to think of them as being superior beings expecting to wait on them or ignoring the woman when they are among a group of friends to show their friends how macho they are. Although the man does the ignoring, he expects respect from the woman and does not like it when she cares him the same way, and then the fights and arguments begin.
While a man expects the woman to reveal her previous relationships, you ask him about his relationships and you will never get a straight answer. That's how it is with most men; They tend to beat around the bush on many issues and then play mind games with their partners, simply because they do not want to be tied down. They however expect the woman to be there to cater to their every whim and fancy and do not see any wrong in this due to their inflated egos.
If a woman starts playing mind games the only thing a man can do is either ignore her completely or take revenge by giving back as good. A woman most of the time play mind games when she wants attention from her man and finds it missing. The man could always tell her to cut it out or get out. Be firm and make sure she understands that you will not tolerate any nonsense from her. If you dilly dally and show a lack of confidence, she will definitely take advantage of you and go on to do worse things to "teach you a lesson". It is a vicious cycle and should be stopped as soon as possible if you are really serious about the woman concerned.
The most common of all mind games played by women is trying to make the man jealous by showing interest in another man. Do not react in the way she expects you to. Do not throw a tantrum and shout at her. She might compare you to another man and say how successful he is or how smart he is hoping to hurt you. At times like this, do not show your true feelings. The best way to act would be to show how bored you are with her silly games. You can always tell her that she's free to go to the successful man if he would have her. Show that you do not care one way or the other. No woman wants to be told she's free to go and if she has been only playing games, she will soon put a stop to it when she sees that it does not bother you. It may even scare her into changing her tactics and both of you can start living normally and with luck, peacefully.CS GO Cross Hairs
