People often play “hard to get”. Dating shouldn’t be a game, if you are serious about being in a long-term relationship there is nothing wrong with making it easy for the other person. No need to play games, make it clear that you are interested in going on a date. Fear of rejection can be very powerful and it’s strong in many people and it causes them to not make a move. A shy or insecure person is not the worst person to date. They might not be shy or insecure in their “normal” life but dating is different. So if you are not the shy or insecure one, make it easy for them, be available, say what you mean and mean what you say!
