A totally evil technique that girls use to hook guys for long-term (as in, "til death do us part" long-term). Unfortunately, it oftentimes works, because being direct freaks the guy out -- unless HE is desperate too -- whereas this method makes the guy want her. Also known as "tantalization", after Tantalus in Greek mythology, although strictly speaking the girl DOES plan to give it up -- but only after a term in purgatory.
Perhaps the most evil aspect of this technique is that if the guy loses it and turns needy or complains to her, she blows him off and looks for somebody else, thereby making it seem like she has been a tease all along.
Erica decided she wanted to marry Tim. Tim liked her and like a shark smelling blood, Erica could tell. But Tim didn't feel like having a girlfriend, which of course for a woman is like waving a red cape in front of the bull (or cow). So she played hard-core hard to get, working him over in ways that would make Machiavelli blush. He couldn't stand it but thought it would be wussy to complain, and that "all girls are like this anyway". Eventually, they ended up married until he died.
