Dear Poll: Is it a Turn On or Turn Off?

Do you like when guys play hard to get or do you want to know right off the bat if they are interested in you? If you have seen the movie Swingers, you will remember the infamous voicemail scene when Mikey incessantly calls Nikki the same night he meets her, pursuing her just a wee bit too hard!!! While he clearly went overboard here, do you think it is a turn on when a guy calls you soon after he asks for your numbers or do you like the excitement and the anticipation when he is aloof and obeys the "three day rule"?

ps. guys who think they're using a system (ie. waiting 3 days or a week to call or whatever), are kinda dumb. They're missing out on a great person, and missing out doing fun things with them, just because of a stupid guy system? Makes no sense! She could be playing the field at the same time and he'd miss out if another guy makes a move first!! hahah

I actually like the attention~ if he plays hard to get it's too hard to tell if he actually is interested and then you waste your time if he isn't. I like when they show interest in the beginning because then I have the upper hand in playing hard to get =) I'm a very careful person so it takes a guy a while to get really close to me. I'm one of those people who feels a little guarded because I'm not sure if the guy is *really* interested or not, and I don't want to get hurt if I dive in too fast. My current bf of 2 years was one of those nice guys who didn't play hard to get with me. I was very weary of him though cuz I couldn't tell if he was trying to get close with me or just be friendly cuz that's just how he is. Turns out he was very interested in me and I could never figure out why (to this day!). Took him a couple months to get my trust in the relationship though, as I was still very weary of having my heart broken. So far so good! It's been an absolutely wonderful relationship XD

Playing games is annoying and a waste of time. If a guy is interested he should show it!

The guy in the film is scary. If he called me five times, I would run for my life. But, calling the day of is okay. I like it when men don't play games. Incessant calling is something else.

Contant calling is freaky, but I like hearing from the guy soon.

I like when they call when they say they're going to call. I hate playing games in relationships. But constant calling would definitely freak me out.

I like when they call right away, but then they have to chill for a bit and keep me wondering. Incessant calling at the beginning is a sign of desperation and/or instability, if you asked me.

If, some guy is kissing the ground I walk on..I can't respect him. There must be balance. So, I like a guy to wait a bit before calling. It's more exciting and fun to me (when I was single).

if there is chemistry, i like it when he calls soon. however if there isn't much there, it is so creepy to have some guy obsessively calling you.
