You got Game?

Over the course of spring break we had a discussion about whether or not people have game when they go after members of the opposite sex. I proposed personally that I do not consider when I attract a girl or not game, but if I did that it would be referred to as prolonged game, in the sense that I take my time and girls like me over time not because I said something cute at a bar. I also think that as people date someone for an extended amount of time, that they eventually lose said game that they may have. You drop out of the race for so long can you catch up?

This is interesting because I dont think game has anything to do with it. I think people like to tell themselves that it does because it makes them feel more confident in any decisions they may be making and hell, its an ego boost. But what is game really? Does anyone actually have it?

Most of the time "game" is based entirely on how "hot or not" the person is. A girl isnt going to talk to you in a bar if you look like Jabba the Hut, its just not gonna happen unless she has a seeing eye dog and a stick. The truth of the matter is, it shouldnt be about game. It should be about chillin and being yourself and waiting for someone to notice that, and appreciate that. THAT is game. Its much harder to just be yourself around a girl you find attractive than to impress her with lines or what have you. So what do you guys think...is game actually existent or is some sort of social construction?
