Girls test you because they want to be sure that your heart and intentions are in the right place.
They don’t want to find themselves in a situation where they have become emotionally involved with a guy who never intended to take them seriously in the first place.
When they test the guy, they are in many ways trying to guard their own hearts so that they don’t end up falling for this guy and getting hurt by him in the future.
Girls will test you to ensure that you are either there for the long-term or not.
Depending on the kind of relationship they are looking for, they will try to determine where you stand.
If they are looking for a long-term relationship, they may constantly test you by making you initiate most of the conversations and dates.
This shows them that you are in it in a serious way and you are actively pursuing them.
If they are in it for a short-term relationship, perhaps something that is more casual, they will be more willing to flirt hard and see how you respond.
If you take the bait and return the favor in kind, they may be willing to jump into a short-term relationship with you knowing full well that they don’t intend to take it any further than that.
