"I've never had a problem playing the game. When I was single I never got into that crying on your shoulder crap."
I wouldn't date the same girl more than twice a month. No sex or intimacy at all. Had about 6 girls I rotated though. Sounds bad doesn't it. But I like the finer restuarants in town and like going places and doing things. And I enjoy friendly female companionship. So I didn't go too far with any of them. No sex."
Your sentences seem like a total oxymoron to me. It doesn't sound like playing the game at all. It sounds like avoidance behavior. I am going to be very honest with you, I think you could use a good Psychologist. I am not at all convinced you can get and maintain a normal healthy love relationship with a woman on your own without professional help. If you try, you may end up upset with women again.
If you do get a chance, watch Confessions of a Matchmaker. She can be brutal, but she gets results. And, go to her site and read her tips. She really knows her stuff
Avoidance behavior : behavior that postpones an aversive event thereby escaping from the conditioned aversive stimuli; conditioned aversive stimulus is all the stimuli before the aversive stimulus presented minus the stimuli associated with the avoidance response; a form of escape behavior.
Avoidance behavior can develop when someone begins to be afraid of doing something so they avoid it.
The terms avoidance behavior are also loosely used to describe the act of knowing you should be doing something and you're not, because you're avoiding it.
