    Do you believe in the waiting game when meeting someone you like?

    Do you think a person should play the waiting game when meeting someone they like?  Should you wait before calling them? If so, why?

    No, because what are you waiting for?  Stop waiting around for that perfect and magical someone, and just start living your life.  I did not have any men call me or send me messages on Valentine's Day this year, and I did not go on any dates.  Was my day sad because of it, no not really.  I had a couple of guys try to ask me out the day before, but I think people just act this way around Valentine's Day.  Sometimes it is just better to be on your own, and to stop waiting around for something, or someone to materialize.  Just enjoy life in the moment.

    Sometimes in situations like this trusting one's intuition(sub- conscious) which women seem to access better than men when it comes to relationships, some men like it when a lady is up-front but not to aggressively. Can only speak from male perspective of course.

    Absolutely not.  No games, ever.  If you like them, call.  It's the games that make dating and relationships complicated and difficult.

    When I was allowed to play. I waited and waited. From my distant vantage point, I say "call", now or wait for the wedding invitation in the mail. And have something to say when you call.

    Well, as for me, everything was kind of backwards.  I moved into a house with 2 other men who I did not know prior to.  I eventually grew to like the one guy, and we hit it off pretty well.  Things did go slowly though, but I find it kind of funny that we were living together before we even were in a relationship - and we have great communication and best of all, we know we can live together!

    Definitely not! Carpe Diem people-seize the day, and the man!
    Show your interest in him and make it sincere and he'll be yours!

    Stop acquiesing your power to someone else.  Honesty is a good thing.  However, with that power, you have to be ready to accept the good with the bad.  In "putting yourself on the line", the risk of rejection comes with the territory.  You have to make a choice for either the waiting and hoping passive game or make a choice for action and deal head-on with the results.

    Depends whether you or they are married or not!  If the field is clear, charge ahead, boot leather squeaking and spurs jangling!

    ..of course, "fools rush in," and "everything comes to he who waits," also...?

    In high school those types of games may have been acceptable, but in adult dating it accomplishes little to nothing.

    The most important thing I've learned about relationships thus far is that there are no rules (or at the very least there are exceptions to every rule) and all really is fair in love and war.

    Risk and reward come hand in hand, waiting changes nothing.

    Why should anyone play mind games, when it comes to romance?

    Connections shouldn't be tampered with, or over analyzed.

    The world needs to stop playings games, and get real.

    In all aspects of life

    What's the point in ' the waiting game ' ? There is no benefit to it  what so ever.
    If there is no other way to meet ( party, work, via friends, etc...) , Just call her/him and see what happens.

    Yes, I believe in waiting until the right person comes. Don't be in a hurry.

    Waiting will get you nowhere. He who hesitates is lost, or at least the best man instead of the groom. Go for it, otherwise you may regret it forever.

    Definitely wait. I've been waiting 17 years and I have a feeling it's going to pay off really soon.
