You know if a guy likes you by how he treats you! You also know he's playing you by how he treats you!<br />
HE IS PLAYING YOU IF any of the following rings true in your relationship:<br />
If he doesn't make time for you, doesn't return your phone calls, calls you late at night instead of during the daytime, doesn't (or rarely) takes you out on dates (but instead makes the event more private for a booty session), doesn't encourage you to bring him out with your friends or meet your family, hasn't introduced you to his friends or family, is secretive or careless of your feelings... Basically anything that hurts or insults you is a sign that he's bad news.<br />
A guy that really likes you will let you know AND YOU WILL KNOW! Honestly, always go with your intuition. If you are worried that he is playing you, he probably is!
By how he treats you. Words mean nothing when there are no actions to back them up.
Take a hard look at the guy if he hangs with a pla<x>yer crowd for instance than he is probably a pla<x>yer himself. Does he give a **** how he lives? Does he drink to excess does he indulge in drugs etc if so he dosnt' much care about any thing so probably not you either. If he's solid and leads an inocent life he could very well be for real.
What other people have said is true. action vs words a the key thing here. You know when your being played when he calls in the middle of the night wants booty call. He makes no attempt to even see you durning the day. he never want to be seen with you anywhere only behind close doors.<br />
If he his your age I'm sorry to tell you he has no idea what he wants. He just a guy with raging hormones and adeline junkie. Guys don't know what they want until the hit about 30's most of them anyway.<br />
I've never been played. I'm way too guarded to ever let anybody close who I haven't observed for a while first. So, that's one answer, its only when you get to know the guy, that you'll know if you're being played or not.
Does he put you first or is it all about him and what he wants. Are youa priority?
Really slow down all the physical stuff and see if he's still interested in hanging out...
I have never been nor tried to be a pla<x>yer but if I really like you, you will not know it until I want you to know it. You may think you know but will be asking questions like this until I let you know I am really into you.
