Something happens inside us when someone is unpredictable, when they don’t respond the way they are supposed to. We get a little excited, and the illogical part of our brain tells us to think about them more and more. So we like them more and more. But when this happens dozens of times, and you experience this game dozens of times, you become immune to it. Or at least aware. Game doesn’t work anymore, and you become attracted to things that wouldn’t have gotten you a couple years ago. Because everyone out there can run game. Anyone with a brain can put out the veneer of value. Yes dear, I know that you are wanted by other men. I completely understand that random losers want to fuck you. I get it.
It’s hard to fake quality. You can’t fake a sense of humor. And you can’t fake intelligence. The only thing you can fake is making it seem like you are more desired than you really are. Because you know you are just like every other girl. You are not unique. The things you have said, I’ve heard a dozen times before. I pretend that you are not exactly like the others, just so I can get in your pants and be done with reliving this same experience.
There is nothing wrong with normal. There is nothing wrong with someone who is predictable. You are so insecure that no one will like you if you act yourself, that you say and do what everyone else says and does. “But I barely know you!” You’re right, and you never will.
