Da guins vs dating game
Mark - are you claiming that the hormone testosterone actually changes positively when a women compliments a man?
I've had men start talking about marriage before dinner is served on a first date. Im one of those women who say exactly what they want, need, feel, in a relationship. This will encourage people to have unhealthy relationships that are less than honest.
Gaming is what people do when they are unable to have real intimacy & truly bond, b/c they were too wounded in their childhood.
Flirting to start a relationship when you don't know each other or flirting in a loving, solid relationship, is a bit different of course than the game playing that is supposedly hormonal run encouraged above....
And then when the woman he is seeing gets fed up with his broken promises and threatens to break up, that re-triggers a challenge in him ( the fear of losing her) to then recapture her only to start the cycle all over. wax and wane poetic over marriage, love, future, etc) to get sex.
When oxytocin is in charge, women go from: see → want → commit (to getting him) → bond → build (family, nest, etc).early on in a relationship only to become resentful when the woman begins to ask him whatever became of that promise later on.
