They will remember things that you have told them and will try to bring up common interests in conversation.The uninterested person will remember very little of what you have told them and will try their best to avoid asking you anything too personal.
But it's especially intolerable on a first encounter, because it's unlikely to improve with time.
Forget that hokum about "Opposites attract." You want to find a person who's as similar to you as possible.
If you’ve tried to arrange a date, but it has been cancelled, the person playing hard to get will have a genuine reason for not showing up.
They will also probably have another time and date in mind so you two can get together.
The hard to get player will take a genuine interest in your life.
They may still not seem 100%, keen and will try to maintain the act of indifference, but the personal questions they ask give them away.
Like John Travolta’s character Danny Zuko in Grease, the men of today (and yesteryear) all labour through the trials of dating under the misguided notion that “playing it cool” gets the girl. Well, if the dating game today is anything to go by, then apparently we do.
Following “The Rules” that state that you cannot seem too interested in a guy is probably the wrong way to go about getting your man. Do we really think that “treat ’em mean to keep ’em keen” is really all it’s cracked up to be?
Someone who is uninterested will just leave you hanging.
They won’t call you or even return your calls, and to be honest, you should really have spotted that something is wrong at this stage.
However, if someone is not interested, you should have noticed an extreme change in their behaviour.
