Do Tell: Do You Like the Chase?

Knowing if someone's interested in you can alleviate that ever confusing guessing game in the beginning of a new relationship, but guys that come on too strong could risk scaring off their potential suitor — some women enjoy the chase! I always savor those feelings you get when you first meet someone you really like — the butterflies, the questions, the unknown — but I know some people who would skip the limbo phase and fast forward straight to boyfriend/girlfriend land if they could. To each their own so do tell, do you prefer the chase or would you rather have your crush lay it all out on the table early on?

yes its all about the chase. it really gets me tortured to know if my love loves me back or not, but im all for the anticipation before confiding

I'm also pretty perceptive about when a guy is into me. I love all the flirtation that goes on in the beginning, and I like a long, drawn out romance where you progress from one base to another in a span of weeks (as opposed to days!) so that there's a lot of tension all the time until finally the two of you burst into a breathless declaration of love!! Okay wow, I've read too many romance novels :P

I'd rather be chased! I'm too shy to pursue anything myself.

hmmm... haven't been chased for a while so won't be able to tell if someone is chasing me unless that person is very skillful at the act. If he uses traditional methods or become too overboard, I will tell him straight up that he has no chance with me and can cut all that crap out. I like to orchestrate the chase myself though for the guy who I have butterflies with, but that's kind of lame too.

I really don't like to jump into relationships. I like to be chased, but I also like to play the part of cat chasing mouse. I like to make him work, but I also don't like him to be too available. It's a matter of testing grounds I think ;)

Lol GScott. :P I'm getting tired of the "fish in the sea" line myself. I love the chase; it's probably my favorite game ever. And my boyfriend still chases me sometimes haha. go figure..

Just to let you know...some guys are fine with the chance but there's a limit. Don't drag him on too long or seem a bit distant during the chase, or he'll fine someone else. It changes for a fun game to a bad game, we know there's plenty fresh meat in the field, and we'll find a different piece if we had to (haha, don't bash my head in, I sounded sleezy there on purpose...I thought it was cute in a jerk way).

The chase seems very exciting but perhaps that's because I'm in a long-term relationship. But I did love the period before we got together, when there was still a little uncertainty. I also like the "new-ness" feelings when you first start going out...I still remember those.

I love the chase - but things with my current boyfriend started pretty immediately though. There was a quick chase though. But usually I LOVE the chase.

I'm with Jude C. I never have trouble telling if someone is into me or not, so I guess I'm not qualified to answer this, really. (I like being the pursuer, though. Probably more than I should. I really enjoy going after guys I can tell don't think of me like that and changing their minds completely.)

Honestly I think life is a marathon not a 100 m sprint. I just like things to unfold liek tehy are meant to and enjoy every moment of the relationship from the first meeting, the the butterlfies to the the gf/bf to the first I love yous..and etc...

It's always been very clear to me when someone's into me, so I can't really say I've dealt with that I feel like I've missed out a bit. But I can live with that ;)

I'm all about the chase. Probably too much about the chase.
