Dear Poll: Who’s the Bigger Game Player?

My male friends point the finger at women, and my gal pals blame men. Apparently the only thing we can all agree on is that someone’s definitely playing games! The guys’ defense is that women are more manipulative, and thus use games as a tool.

While I do know many women who consciously work a particular angle, I think it’s naïve to say that men don't do that too! So in your experience, who plays more games? Men or women?

In my experience, women have been more conniving and manipulative. They've also proven themselves to play mind games. It's just sad. It might do a lot of women good to read up on Barbara De Angelis's books. They actually make sense i.e. if you want a real man, be the real you. If you don't want a man to manipulate you, don't manipulate him. If you want a man to be honest with you, be honest with him. If you sincerely like a man, don't play hard to get. No responsible, mature man has time for that sort of shit.

We're all to blame. I'd say that women are better at it, but women are also the ones who let themselves keep getting played over and over again.

Men are so much more straight forward when it comes to dating and relationships. Women have so many 'rules' and tests for the guys. I'm a woman in my mid-20's and even I don't get all of these games that other women play.

Women most definitely. When it comes to the boil guys are pretty straightforward if the woman is not delusional LOL. Women always play mean games which sometimes are self defeating.

Women definitely. Most women try and play games and do the totally wrong thing. I've seen it with all my girl friends and all of my guy friends girlfriends. Trying to make your man jealous usually backfires and makes the guy dislike you. Hard to get works as long as you're still flirting and just waiting to have sex. Being honest and truthful is the best idea for a relationship.

Women!!! Ugh!! Make me crazy. I'm not a huge game player so it makes me crazy that men have practically been conditioned to expect it. I get so mad when they second guess what I say. I say things because I mean them, not because I am trying to get you to guess what I want and do the opposite of what I say.

Me being bisexual, I've noticed that WOMEN know what to say and HOW to say it to get their way. Even women in my fam, know how to manipulate very well. Fooling people into believing things. Men can only try to get away with it, but women know how to do it and when to do it...LIE!

I picked both because I think we're definitely both at fault, but I do know more guys that have been screwed over by women than the other way around

Im frustrated by the myth that men are the ones at fault for playing games and being cheaters. In fact, I know of a bunch of women who have cheated on their men, and are just as "bad" if not worse than your stereotypical men when it comes to game.
