In the dating world, everyone wants the attention of people they find attractive. The difference is in HOW they get that attention.
Boys/girls get other peoples attention by drawing it in, that is, by chasing after it. Their tactics include playing silly games, creating problems or drama, and making up excuses to get you to come near, only to push you away again.
Men/woman get other peoples attention naturally; their energy radiates, and the people who match their energy will be naturally attracted to them. This is attention by giving, and you’ll know it when you come across it.
As always, it’s not about right or wrong, it’s just about how to break past the barriers holding you back and get to the part where life is sweet.
