I've heard from several places that you ignore the girl you really want. Usually done in group settings. You pay more attention to other girls she seems to be familiar with, or other girls entirely, but don't give your main target the prime attention. You also surround yourself with lots of women to play off of the natural selection strategy. Don't worship the girl you really want, don't put her on a pedestal, don't shift the balance of power to her, make her want you with your high social value, so on and so forth.
I've tried this several times when I see new girls at the parties that my friends throw. Its pretty easy to do, because I do have a bunch of female friends that we're all on good, friendly, play-flirting terms with. What seems to happen is the girl I really want seems to get pissed that I've causally dissed her. Its like she feels left out, so she tries to one-up by getting as much attention from as many other guys as possible; if I'm not giving her attention, there's plenty of other guys that will. That pretty much blows, because now I have to AMOG all of them to get back to her. Its like I've shot myself in the foot.
Am I understanding and/or doing this wrong?
