Every woman likes a guy who is at least a little mysterious. It allows her to know she can still get to know you. The trick to being mysterious without being aloof is not an easy needle to thread. You can easily cross the line from man of mystery to game-player quicker than you might realize. To keep her interested, there are a few things you should be willing to do. You should be make the conversation all about her, keep your answers direct to the questions and talk minimally about other subjects. This will allow you to keep her attention without making it look like you have something to hide. She will enjoy the challenge of getting to know you even more this way.
Make the Conversation about Her
Whenever you are talking with her, try to make sure you are showing her you are interested in getting to know her. Do not volley back with talking about the ways you share her interests. Instead, keep talking about what interests her and why it interests her. Ask questions and keep the conversation going. She will get so excited you are showing an interest, she will keep talking. It will not be until later she will realize she did not learn much about you and it will make her insane with curiosity to know more about you.
Be Direct with Your Answers
Whenever she is asking you about the things you are interested in, be direct with your answers. You can elaborate a little bit to let her know you are trying to answer her question fully, but try not to get too long with your answer. Remember, you want to bring the conversation back around to her as quickly as possible. You should not get so elaborate with your answer you are now making it all about you. This is about her and you need to make sure you are driving this point home. Say something like, “but enough about me, tell me about…” This will allow you to maintain the conversation on her without making it appear as if you do not want to talk about you. It will keep her happy and interested.
Talk Minimally about Other Subjects
When you are talking about other subjects, make sure you are talking strictly about the subject and not offering your personal opinion about it. This will let her know you are willing to talk about other things, but not trying to take a stand on either side. She will want to know where you stand with the subjects you are talking about and she will try to get the information out of you.
This is kind of a game you are playing with her to maintain her interest, but it is one she will appreciate. In the end, she will feel intrigued and excited about you. Later on, you can open up and be yourself and it will just appear you have become comfortable in the relationship you are working on.
