Just as some women like to play dating games, many men are notorious for it also. Many men cheat on women, date several women at once, they might take a woman out and sleep with her and never call her again, and some men do all of the above and more. As a woman, you need to know how to tell the game players from the real men so that you don’t get hurt. So if you’re dating a man, and you want to know if he’s playing games or if he’s serious, just pay attention to how he acts and how he treats you and you’ll soon see the answer was clear the entire time.

Playing Games

Slip Up

Some men are very good at playing games. They’ll date several women at once and the whole time those women will have no idea the others exist. This type of game playing man is able to keep all the women’s facts straight just as he’s able to keep key football stats straight. Sooner or later, however, even players slip up. They may get too comfortable or too full of themselves and that’s when you need to pay attention. He may call you by the wrong name, he may ask if you remember certain things you and him supposedly did together that have nothing to do with you. They also include him rushing you out of a place where one of his other women happen to be.



Men who play games are often secretive about where they’re going and what they’re doing. If you’re out with him and his phone rings, for example, does he get up and step out the room or does he just ignore it completely? Both of those can be signs but they can also be completely innocent. It could be his mother calling, for instance, and he just didn’t want to be rude and answer his phone at dinner.


Physical Too Soon

Another good way to find out if he’s a player or if he’s serious is if he tries to get physical too soon. If you’ve only been dating for a short time, you should try to prolong the physical aspect until the two of you know each other better. Players have no interest in getting to know you and only want to get physical in as short of time as possible. If he tries to get physical, and you tell him you want to wait, and he gets frustrated or angry, he’s a player and you should move on. If he respects your wishes, however, and he agrees to wait with you, then he’s serious and that’s a relationship you definitely want to pursue.


How Does He Act

While slipping up, being secretive and getting physical too soon are signs that he’s playing you, they’re not really definitive proof. However, you can usually tell right away if he’s playing games or if he’s serious by the way he acts towards you. Does he pay attention when you talk? Does he go out of his way to make you happy? Does he try his hardest to see you as often as possible? Does he tell you everything without holding anything back? And, finally, does he look deeply in your eyes when he talks to you almost as if he’s hypnotized? These are signs that he is totally into you and that he’s completely serious.

So keep an eye out for clues that he may be seeing other women and playing you for a fool. But really pay attention to his behavior and how he treats you. Because, the fact is, a man who is serious about you would never jeopardize your relationship, and so he’ll do anything in his power to make sure you never go anywhere. That’s what separates players from real men and you don’t want to waste your time on any men who are only interested in playing games.
