To my mind, anything a woman does could be construed as part of a 'mind game' to a male.
There's two simple reasons for this. I was going to write these as generalizations, but being specific to me can't hurt (and by all means, please, feel free to point out what a freak I am for being my own guinea-'hawk).
One, there is a tendency for myself to want to be the centre of said woman's attention. The tendency then becomes to internalize her every action as somehow relative to me. It's like a conspiracy theory with a really hot figure. She doesn't call? Must've been something I said. She wants to go out? Maybe she does like me. She's interested in talking Trek with me? Hey, I'm doing something right. My initial reaction is always self-specific, reflective entirely on my own actions or lack thereof.
This is nothing new-- women do the same exact thing. The difference, though, is in the details. In my experience, women tend to internalize everything, period. Men, on the other hand, tend to internalize specific moments, and have a less general, and more relative, mechanism of self-criticism. In other words, to women, men are just part of everything else they have to do, while to men, women, the job, the bills, the dog, the vehicle they drive-- these are all separate entities.
So it tends to be easier for men to point and yell "bitch!" simply because they disconnect one issue from all the rest. This is not a good thing to do in all cases. Especially not when you're a raving jackass and can't see your own flaws to save your pathetic life. See also: 'Hawk, the.
(And no, I'd be more likely to yell 'fire!' in a crowded theatre than 'bitch!', ever.)
The second point, on this regard, is that neither men nor women can read minds. While I certainly expect people to behave rationally (and I'm told that most men do), I fully understand and appreciate that neither men nor women are always motivated solely out of reason. Sometimes they do stupid stuff for reasons only they can hope to explain, and even then, not very well, even to themselves. I honestly believe that a man will tend to be harder on women the more he expects to be able to control the situation by using simple, logical, calculated steps. It's so much easier when you stop worrying about directing whatever moment you're having and simply experience it, in fullness, for what it is, and what it will be. Most people can't do that, since they really want things to work and they don't want to waste their apparently-precious time. This goes back to a tendency prevalent in any human being not to want to make a risk for no reward.
Now, I don't pretend to know women, in fact, there's quite a few I'd like to know a lot better. But I honestly don't know that there's anything unique about "mind games", especially considering the number of female friends I've had confide in me that "men are pigs" or "guys are all players" or "you bastards can't make up your damned minds", or my personal favourite, "aside from you, I want every man on this planet to drop dead, and then I'd have to neuter you just so you could live."
But then, what do I know, I've relegated myself to the fact that I'm one of the "guys women marry", as opposed to the "guys women date". Whatever that means. It's probably all part of some mind game. Yeah. That's it.
