In response to : If guys are realizing we are catching on why is it that they haven't changed?
Whose to say that all guys are catching on, I may be one of the few that his to the new game (or at least I like to think that). Nevertheless, guys still want to feel dominant in any action they engage in, most importantly relationships, and a sense of feeling inferior to a woman strikes fear in the heart of any man. Control in all aspects of a relationship is a central component of a guy starting, staying, and maintaining a relationship with a woman. The degree of that control differs from guy to guy. Traditionally the more egomaniacal, the more control as security issues are sure to arise.
These "games" that woman are now attempting to take control over throws a wrench in the traditional gameplay that was once completely owned by men. It will be interesting to see what transpires from it. This "battle" will be a hard fought one, as certain dating traditions have been ingrained in a man's head for decades, (I'm not talking about opening doors and covering the dinner bill) and if women believe men will be so willing as to allow a shift in the balance of power so easily, they are fairly mistaken. However, women do have one card up their sleeve that a man is always on the hunt for, and how they choose to play it can make or break the game.
