“If you are actively pursuing someone, you better come up with something better than ‘hey’ or you will lose their interest,” he cautions.
But don’t underestimate the guy’s ability to play hard to get: “However, if I know someone is interested in me, and maybe I’m playing hard to get, just saying ‘hey’ after a lull in conversation can let them know that I’m still interested, but still give me the control.” We have a consensus here – everyone answered no.
