Guys Decoded: Your Top 5 Questions Answered

3. Do men like it when women play hard-to-get?

Not only does playing hard-to-get work, if done correctly it can help start out a relationship on a very spicy tip. The bottom line is that men like the thrill of the chase and, yes, we want what we can't have. It's just part of how we're programmed. So if you act somewhat interested yet slightly unavailable, we eat it up. The key, however, is to balance the chase with tidbits of encouragement. If you sense that your flirtatious snubs and indecision are frustrating him, throw him a bone. This may seem an antiquated scenario, but the truth is that guys like chasing after you as much as you like being pursued. Give your new man the right bait and he'll jump through hoops to get it (read: you). Just be sure he knows there's a light at the end of the tunnel.

4. Why don't guys talk about their ex-girlfriends?

It's not that guys don't talk about their ex-girlfriends, it's that they talk about them much, much less than women talk about (or want to talk about) their ex-boyfriends. The fact is, every relationship ends with blood on both hands, and the good guys will admit they could have done a better job in retrospect. Other than that, what more do you need to know? There's a word for wanting to know about the ex-girlfriends your guy was in love with: masochism.
