You call your BFF with great enthusiasm about the new guy you just met. Whoever responds first may end up being his booty call. Let him know he needs to plan several days in advance if he wants to see you.
A player is usually very deceptive and manipulative.
When one enters your life, you could be forgiven for believing that they are a gift from the gods – and that is exactly what they want you to think.
Sadly this thin veil of deception often hides low self worth, an inability to form secure attachments, and inevitably, heartbreak when the deception is exposed People who have been single for a long time, are lonely or are struggling with their own self-esteem are particularly vulnerable to falling for a player but really no-one is exempt.
Here are some of the main warning signs that can help you spot a one of these slippery characters if you are unfortunate enough to date one. The beginning of a relationship with a player will usually feel like a whirlwind and you may be knocked off your feet by their charm, enthusiasm and interest in your life.
They will work hard to make you believe, very quickly, that your life has no value without them.
They will endeavour to be in your life right away, helping with problems and offering to be there for you in all sorts of situations.
Before long they are in the centre of your life and being charming, endearing and overly helpful with other people as they try to ingratiate themselves with your family and friends too.
You met your dream guy on a Monday night at a social mixer. He takes your phone number and sends you a flirty text message on your ride home saying how he can't wait until Friday night. Unless he's truly sick or has a business meeting out of town, your dream date may have been caught up in the moment when he double-booked you. If you become the Wednesday night girl, you should be wondering what he is doing on a Friday or Saturday night. After a few months of dating and several conversations for upcoming events with his friends and family that he never follows up on, don't believe he is going alone. If your dream date calls you the day of, or even the day before a date to get together, don't get excited and change your plans with your girlfriends to accommodate him.
He asks you out for Friday night, which appears to be a good sign as it's one of the weekend evenings. If you are sleeping with a guy who doesn't call you his girlfriend, significant other, or other pet name in public, you're just a friend with benefits. It's time to get out of your dream world and find a man who wants to call you his girl. If your guy consistently goes to business mixers in the evening to meet with potential female clients, chances are he's going on a date.
