12. All of your dates involve alcohol.
The fact is, most players want to avoid getting a girl sloppy drunk. However, they also know that sharing just drink or two will make it easier to get sex by an order of magnitude.
13. He has a wide face.
Biomechanics is your friend in your quest to root out cads. Men with wider faces are more likely to have higher testosterone levels, and therefore are more likely to seek sexual novelty.
14. Is secretive about his phone –
He knows that, because you possess a vagina, you are going to try to snoop as soon as you get the chance.

15. His phone is always blowing up OR you have never heard it.
The bolder player will not care to hide their dalliances with other women because they can use jealousy to their advantage. The stealthier guys will make their phones a complete non-factor when you’re together.
16. Is resistant to any innovative date ideas after getting sex. Why should this guy waste time on taking you to the zoo or ice skating if he got what he came for?
17. Avoids PDA at all costs, especially if he’s better looking than you. The player needs some plausible deniability should he run into one of his other conquests. He also doesn’t want to devalue himself in the eyes of women or other men if he’s punching below his weight.
18. He forgets which stories he’s told you. The most surgical players have a cache of go-to anecdotes, one liners, and pontifications that they unleash on any new prospect to build attraction. If you’re hearing about his skydiving adventure or his palm reading skills for the third time, he’s used this script before.
19. Doesn’t give a shit about Facebook. He knows that social networking puts him squarely on the grid, and also that “getting your Facebook” actually decreases his odds of having sex with you. A small subset of players will embrace the opposite extreme and have a prodigious Facebook presence with tons of female “friends,” but most player Facebook accounts will be locked up like the farmer’s daughter on prom night.
20. Not anxious to please you. Have you noticed that most men have bent over backwards to accommodate you since around the age of 14? This behavior will be conspicuously absent in players. They will be less willing to put up with your crap and will act like they have other options. Because they do.
21. Doesn’t call or text you beyond the bare minimum. With lots of balls in the air, it’s impractical for the player to devote significant energy to any single one.
22. Will only meet up when there’s the prospect of sex. Lunch at your favorite place between work meetings? Taking a walk around the park? Getting together while you’re on your period? The veteran player will avoid these like the plague.
Men, if you work some of these characteristics into your persona you’ll improve your success with women instantly, have more power in dating, and free up time to focus on more important things.
Now for the ladies — I’ve given you a great blueprint for avoiding the kinds of men you profess to despise, but I fear it will inevitably fall on deaf ears. You are innately and viscerally attracted to men who display these characteristics, which is why many of us have worked hard to develop them as second nature. Sorry.
