Humans have been playing mind games with each other ever since the dawn of time.
Mind games were used to win wars and bring peace between nations.
The motivations differ from person to person, but the goal is always the same – to win.
There are many reasons why they choose to play with women’s emotions, but most of them are targeted at acquiring a prize, a sense of self-worth, or the admiration of their peers. Validation is usually connected to women, but it is also an issue with men.
When it finally happens, they can’t help but give in to anything the guy wants, lest they lose him and his image as the perfect partner. This one will disappear without a trace, and then suddenly, he’ll spring back up into the woodworks when you least expect it. He will purposely ignore you or make you wait for his call or text.
He will charge his disappearance to some sort of personal problem, but he promises that he just couldn’t stop thinking about you. When he finally does contact you, he knows that he has you wrapped around his finger. It’s pretty easy to pull one over on the guys that love playing mind games. Our instincts are borne out of a primal defense mechanism.
For the purpose of this article, we will be focusing on men and the mind games they play. Like when you’re doing it to save someone from a bad relationship.
Men are genetically programmed to take care of women. However, that is still up for discussion because playing mind games suggests duplicity and dishonesty.
