Playing Hard To Get
When a prospective sexual partner knows that you are seeking thier attention, they will do all they can to throw you off, so that you will have to do something seriously impressive to get thier attention. The two best tactics against this are to either completely ignore them or appear oblivious to the fact they are playing hard to get.

She's playing hard to get and keeps ignoring me.

Playing Hard To Get
Some women play hard to get with a guy even when she doesn't find him attractive nor has any romantic interest in him. She just likes to be chased and passionately desired because it's like a power trip for her. Then, when she gets bored she just cuts him off, especially if she's an extremely attractive women who's aware of her own extreme attractiveness. Women like that have lots of options and usually get what they want, and it seems no matter how much you protest, no matter how cruel her actions are, she doesn't feel one ounce of sympathy because she has a legion of other guys that will drool over her and do her bidding. That's why it's so important not to immediately fall for women like that. I know it's difficult to resist a beautiful woman - very difficult, but you just have to precondition yourself to do it. Admire her beauty for a while, but if you sense that she's...that kind of girl, just move on.

Don't be anybody's fool, that's what I say. So, the whole playing hard to get thing is often not cute. For guys looking for something serious, it's potentially a waste of time.
