"I like when women play hard to get."
"I like when women pretend not to like me as oppose to showing me they’re actually interested and I’ve never questioned how weird and messed up that is."
I feel like this could also translate to “Women are actually saying ‘no’ to me and don’t want to be around me but I just think they’re playing hard to get so I’ll keep harassing them”
That too! What I was originally thinking was that they were basically admitting what you said - they DO enjoy harassing women and this is a more socially acceptable way to say it.
