Dating and mind games
Stakes are high in the dating game, and there's no instruction manual for winning.
But while we're all gunning for high scores, here are the 15 games we should probably stop playing so we don't kill the fun.
(Aka ghosted.) But if I sat there and tried to explain to my dear mother, mom he hasn’t added me on snap chat, or followed me on insta or sent me a friend request yet. Or if I told her I’m salty AF about the fact he opened my snap and didn’t answer. Or tagging each other in memes and sending pics is a whole new level everyone hopes to get to, I think my mother’s head would spin. We claim we want relationships and want to see someone but we cancel the day of for reasons we don’t even know. Everyone says they hate being single but they’d rather spend a Friday night alone watching Netflix and swiping than try stepping out their front door.
That fact that you crush a pint of Talenti and watch "Sex and the City" reruns every night has nothing to do with your relationship status.
You look for a pick-me-up or pity date because you've ran out of matches.
You post your potential on the 'Gram just for your ex to see.
Still, it seems every time our phones light up, we willingly participate in petty mind games.
And it usually leads to fizzling out after the first date.
