The games that started in middle school, for whatever sick and twisted reason, will initially take a toll on the young boys they were deployed against.
But over the long term, they will cost girls more.
Boys will adapt.
Boys will learn.
Boys will read, compare notes, theorize and inevitably figure it out as their genetics are programmed to do.
They will then become men.
And once that happens, they will have been so forged by fire and tribulation not only will your games not work, your sincerity will be dismissed as a tactic.
And when your sincerity is refused or just not trusted, you will then realize the full price you'll have to pay for your foolish games.
