The dating game for men

I’m barely old enough to remember their successes in the 1980’s.Otherwise, I’ve seen them have losing season after losing season. In this post, I explain why guys lose the dating game.But when should you stick around, and when should you run out the door?Here are seven mind games guys play and how to deal.But then I mentioned it to my other single friends—both men and women—and they all professed similar experiences.It appears the "the chase" has become something more of a war.
