Yo-Yo Dating

February 22, 2010 at 11:44AM by Divya Bahl |


You'd think once you arrive at college, boys would grow up and not reel you in and then push you away, right? I guys are mature and older...aren't they? Nope. Even in college, you'll meet that gorgeous senior who flirts with you after class, texts you before you go to sleep and acts totally interested in you but then the following week completely ignores you while he's chatting up some other girl at a party. As soon as you are about to say "enough is enough," he does something so irresistibly sweet, that you can't possibly let go. Behold, the infamous yo-yo dating scene.

I've met and dealt with them and you totally deserve better – as I'm sure you've said to yourself a million times already. There are ways though, to cut the cord of this yo-yo who has been stringing you along for way too long!

Don't over flirt! Boys who like you will be clear. Yes, we all play games but when a boy truly does like you – it's game over, and there are no more pawns to kill or castles to jump. If you feel like you're flirting more than he is, stop yourself and let him keep the witty banter flowing for once. It'll stop you from wasting your conversation on a guy who isn't as invested in this as you are.

Take control of your social life. I can admit to going to a party because I thought my crush would be there. Don't plan your social life around where he might be! You're only setting yourself up for disappointment when your fun is determined on his actions! Do what you want to do tonight and don't plan your social life around him.

Be true to yourself. My friend had to put her foot down to the off and on again hookups with a guy who was being hot and cold with her. You might tell yourself you're okay with a friends and benefits relationship, but if you truly like this guy, you're only getting half of what you want, which won't make you happy in the end. You deserve the whole nine yards, so be strong and hold out.

It's definitely hard when you fall for a guy like this, but remember a guy who hates labels, is a repeated hookup, or is just hot and cold isn't the person you want a relationship with.

Have you been in this type of relationship? What did you do to stop chasing?
