Why Do Men Like ‘The Chase’ and How Can You Use It to Your Advantage?

chasing a guy

Women have always been told that when it comes to men, she should play hard to get. Equally, men have been told that women love to be pursued by them. Unfortunately, in recent times they have lost sight of what “the chase” really means and why men like it.

To really be great at dating, you have to understand what the chase means and why men like it, before you blindly follow that advice.

Have you ever heard guys complain that they hate when women play hard to get? What they probably don’t realize is that they actually love a good chase. Chasing a great woman who knows how to make a guy chase her is every guy’s dream. And we’ll tell you how to be that special woman here.
Men like to chase women for two main reasons: their ego and actually to understand if they want the girl. But the real reason behind why a woman plays hard to get and makes the men chase her is entirely different.

Men Chase Women to Boost Their Egos

Men are competitive creatures, and they’ve always been that way. Every guy wants to go out with a amazing woman. So when a lot of eligible men try to date her, she obviously has several options. The woman then evaluates the odds and sees which guy likes her more than the others, and he’ll also test her compatibility at the same time. So what guys call a chase isn’t really a chase, it’s just the woman’s way of weighing the odds and picking one who seems more determined and willing to prove that he’s the best choice for her.

So when the woman chooses a particular guy, he’s going to puff out his chest and walk around like he’s top dog because he won an amazing prize—you! If you don’t have that many options available, you don’t want to pay the guy any attention simply because someone says that you should. If a guy notices that there’s some competition, he’ll go into “competition” mode and will notice when you’re trying to force things along.

The Chase Helps Men Realize How Important the Woman Is

Men tend to fall in love with someone in various stages. The first thing they’ll do is make the woman fall in love with them way before they can consider if they should start having feelings for the woman in question. All the guys care about is trying to get the woman to like them. This tends to be the trickier part of the guys thinking that you really have to understand.

If you’re too easy, he’ll start thinking that he deserves someone better than you. If you wind up kissing them on the first date (or have sex with him on the first date), don’t let it control you. The chase helps you to decide whether he is a worthy partner. If you know that you both like each other, then the chase has ended… Well, you know the rest.
