Dear Love Doctor,
Why do guys say they will do something when they have no intention to follow through?
I think your question goes back to the cavemen, and maybe even beyond. I’m pretty sure that your complaint is also a complaint that most guys also have about women.
Obviously, I would need more specifics, but some logical answers would be: (1) They don’t reallly like you, (2) They are testing you, or (3) They are psychopathic. Any of those could be right, depending on your specific situation.
If you could give me something a little more specific to go off of I will gladly try to explore your quandry more fully. Until then, good luck!
