hard to get.
it’s when someone has you chasing them for the golden carrot they are dangling.
they can sense you’re really interested so it can be a form of manipulation.
those same tactics can be used in certain circles on a platonic level.
The nerd wants to fit in with the popular kids so they make him/her prove their worth.
if you have to overly prove yourself for anything,
it doesn’t actually work out in the way you’d imagine.
i saw a saying that blew my top earlier.
