You met a girl, you hit it off, and you're certain that she likes you.
All the signals are there, after all.
She smiles when you talk to her. She laughs at your (sometimes unfunny) jokes.
She waits for you. She plays with her hair. She stares deep into your eyes while you talk.
Yet, when you ask her out, she evades. "I can't," she says. "I'm too busy right now."
And you're perplexed! You'd swear this girl likes you. You're sure she does. She's not just some random flirtatious girl.
You've seen her with other guys. She isn't this way with them. There's definitely something there between you. You're definite about it.
However, she keeps being flirtatious with you, but keeps evading your attempts to get together with her.
Why do girls play hard to get?
