Uhm, no. If I am interested in a woman and she doesn't reciprocate when I show her attention, I take that as a fairly evident sign that she is not interested.

I can tell you that it wouldn't work with me. I really don't think there is a special way of attracting a man who would not have been interested to begin with; their are definitely ways of repelling a man, as I can attest to, having been, quite often, on the receiving end.

I suspect it will work on some guys but not others. Serious egotists for instance may possibly be offended that you do not swoon as expected, taking it as a challenge.

As for me, if someone behaves as if they are not interested I try to do them the courtesy of assuming they are not.

this goes for both genders:

if you're the type that is very atttactive to people from the opposite sex, yes, so some degree.

If you're not the type that is extremely attractive to the opposite sex, no.

The more attractive you are, the more it works.

The less attractive you are, the less it will do anything but cause them to move on.

Everytime I was ignored by a woman I took it at face value...and stopped pursuit, because, believe it or not, I was "asked to leave" by a store manager for flirting with a woman

I do not cave in.If a woman wants to play games.Well i am not into that..i dealt with that all in my 20s.It gave me a nervous breakdown and lost my pride.I am 39 now and will never travel that road again. I rather be alone on the sidelines than play the head games.At least i have my pride.

Actually, this "game" thing women pull by "Ignoring" a man to get his attention, is actually basically she gets off on the "Control" she has over a man basically. She loves it, the games....everything.
She holds the cards, and by dangling the carrot in front of him, is just part of the control she is attempting to make over a man.

get his attention, sure.

Positive attention?

I highly doubt this.

will I chase? (sort of maybe as a secondary or tertiary thingb tom chase, but you've dropped on my "list" of prospects, so to speak)

If I DO end up bein with you at all; I will remember how you have treated me, and maybe, not worry so much about bein a lil rude to you.

"When I ignore him then suddenly he is around all the time. When he gets too much attention from me..then bam he disapears..lol..."

Just do the same thing at work, as you do in that photo...and you'll have his attention

I didn't know this thread was here. But a lot of current posts are on the thread I started earlier this morning: "Do You Believe Playing Hard to Get Is Important?" Some good answers.

Personally, when women are ignoring me (which is 99% of the time) it makes me think you're not interested, and I end up on a singles website getting ignored.

Not this one. Ignore me and I'll respect you and what I know, not what I can or cannot intuit.

Not on this site.

Here, you pay attention to a guy, he'll totally notice.

What you're talking about only has a bit of relevance where some dude is the center of attention amongst a tight-knit group of people with lots of girls.

Guys that have that going on don't come to sites like this.

I have a question. There are all these nice guys on here looking to meet women, yet here we have women chasing guys that can't even bother to pay attention to them unless you girls figure out wierd, reverse-psychological-methods to convince them to like you?

Who ARE these guys, and how can we, as the decent dudes on this site, become one of them for just a day so we can meet, and treat nicely, just one of these girls these dudes like to string along and ignore?




And finally yes, it can work, but you have to be coveted by him in the first place. -And why would you even want to pursue someone like that, anyway, even if it did work?

Doesn't get my attention, just the opposite. I lose interest in someone like that very quickly.
