To bet on all horses in a race other than the one favored to win. My father had this curious strategy of always playing the field when he bet on horse races. Never worked for him, though. By extension, to date a variety of people rather than making a commitment to one person.
Dating: Guys who see themselves "playing the field" after 30? What's your plan? | Wall Street Oasis
Why take a risk on meeting someone who already lies from the beginning? Yeah, no shit! Because you're one of those people he uses as a booty call, but you're so arrogant that you actually think he's into you he's actually way too good for you, and you know it, which is why you jump for joy at his "crumbs". Don't be that girl. Online dating is common practice, leading people on is common practice, and blowing people off is becoming common practice. The same technology that is rejecting people via a swipe.
Thats simple. Guys play the field, for he same reason women hook up with the wrong kinda guys. I can't even begin to tell you how many times I have heard women say "There are no more good men left, where are all the good men". Answer: We're the ones you're not looking at.
The truth is, dating is a game. Sometimes, you win. Sometimes, you lose. Sometimes, you draw even. So, who is the girl who has game?
