If you clicked on this blog because you believe you’re getting played, chances are you might not be wrong. We are in-tune to things that are happening around us and we can smell a chicken before it hatches. But just in case your intuition needs some reassurance, here are five signs that you are getting played.
1. Never Labels You
A person that genuinely wants you will label you as theirs because they want the world to know. They will want the world to know because they don’t want any other person to have you. So, if the person you’re “talking” to leaves you label-less then they don’t care what other man or women gets you because they are playing you anyway. Don’t be a chess piece in their pathetic game of love.
2. You Are Their Bedroom Secret
Ironically, a person that is playing you never takes you outside to play. They will keep you in a sandbox, which is either your apartment or theirs. How many times of countless sex and meaningless pillow talk does it take to realize that you are their bedroom secret? A person that is serious about you will take you on dates and get to know you outside the bedroom. A person that is playing you will keep you inside and only get to know the coordinates of your body parts.
3. They Only Text You
This is a subtle sign that you can easily miss. In this day in age everybody texts so it is easy to think that if they are texting you all the time, then that means they really like you. WRONG! It actually can mean the opposite if they only text you. Anyone can easily send the same “Good Morning Babe” text to 10 different people and then carry on separate conversations with them for the rest of the day. A person who genuinely likes you will text you sometimes and call you mostly. A person that is playing you will only text you because they have other people on their roster they need to make feel special too.
4. They Always Forget
If the person you are talking to always seems to forget things, then they are most likely playing you. This includes forgetting dates, forgetting things you tell them, forgetting to call you when they say they will and whatever else that could possibly be forgotten. A person that really likes you will never forget anything. Think about it from your point of view. When you like someone you remember everything they tell you down to what time their dentist appointment is in two weeks. It is just that simple. When someone likes you, they will never forget. A person that is playing you will frequently forget because they don’t care to remember.
5. Says It’s Bad Timing
I saved this one for number 5 because I must save the best for last. This is the best one because this is the one that traps people every single time. There is no such thing as bad timing when someone is serious about you. When someone says that it is bad timing, that is their way of giving you false hope that something could happen in the future so you stay on their roster. A player will never win without the help of their team, so they tell them what they know will keep their head in the game.
