Treat the situation as though you’re right about letting time dictate how things will play out naturally. Be more spontaneous and open to what may come your way. That will be far more refreshing and exciting!

How To Get A Gemini Man To Chase You (6 Easy Ways)
1. Be Friends First
The best approach to getting a Gemini man to come calling is to be his friend first. This way you are able to get to know him, know his likes, know his dislikes, and get the “inside” information you want.
Since not all Gemini men are the same; this will help you to figure out which type you’ve got and what you can do about it. You can figure out if he’s the type that would prefer a woman to be bold with him or if he prefers a woman for him to chase.
Having some of that information is definitely helpful. Also forming a friendship first will actually make things far easier communication-wise. You two can get to know each other and figure out if you’re actually compatible or not.
Gemini men are slow movers and will prefer to be friends first with you until they can fully assess if you’re the type of woman they want to try dating. He isn’t thinking about marriage or commitment.
He’s thinking about whether or not he can DATE you. Only after he’s dated you for what he feels is a significant time will he decide whether or not it can go further than that.
While you’re still unattached to each other though; just be friendly. Keep things light and airy with him. Be funny and show him WHY you would be a good match for him.
2. Be Witty And Interesting
Gemini’s are the most talkative signs of the Zodiac, and they have a wonderful way with words. You won’t meet a better joke-teller!
The way they speak is so highly characteristic of them and so they are likely to search out somebody with similar ways of thinking and speaking. So, one way to encourage a Gemini to chase you is to engage him in any manner of mental connection.
Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication and how each one of us thinks. Since Gemini has such close ties to Mercury, we can reasonably assume that Geminis have similar qualities to the planet Mercury.
They really enjoy a flirtatious meeting of the minds. They go nuts for someone who can intelligently banter with them as flirting. Going this route will ensure that you stay on their minds. One thing a Gemini cannot ignore is someone who can match them in mental prowess.
So, make sure to flex your critical thinking skills around a Gemini. And remember, Mercury is also the fastest planet in the solar system, so your mind better go as fast as theirs does – if you want to keep them interested!

3. Go With The Flow
A Gemini will head in eight different directions before breakfast and will need the room to freely explore every direction, so it is important that they feel empowered to do so.
A great way to open up a Gemini to pursuing you is to stay open to any new possibility they may come up with throughout the day.
In the morning they may want to take a road trip to their favourite restaurant two hours away and by lunchtime, they may want to stay snuggled in bed. And you need to be okay with that.
Finding someone who is open to letting a Gemini pursue any avenue they find interesting that second is going to have a much better chance at winning their heart.
The key is to not be threatened by a Gemini’s roving mind. If you are solid enough and have enough substance then the Gemini will come back to you with time. It just takes them exhausting every avenue first.
4. Be Social
If you know anything about Geminis, you know that they are hyper-social! In most cases, they are the most social sign of the Zodiac.
One can imagine that a Gemini is not typically too interested in hanging out with someone who is very introverted. It just works against who they are at their core.
They will be most open to being with someone who will be comfortable going out and meeting and greeting them.
So, if you want to encourage a Gemini to chase after you, then show that you like to talk to people and actively engage in social scenarios.
Make sure that you let your Gemini in on the times you expect to go out and about. Make sure that they see pictures on social media or better yet, invite them to go out with you! As long as it is clear that it is just to hang out and that it isn’t a date then they will be on board.
The idea is to hang out with them enough outside of a romantic context to entice them into a romantic situation with you.
5. Don’t Ask For Commitment Too Soon
We’ve established that Geminis move fast and that their minds are always active and running. But what else does this mean for a woman who is looking to be chased by the Gemini?
A Gemini always likes to keep his options open. He doesn’t like feeling married to one decision forever unless he has evaluated all other options and has decided that one option is superior.
As a result, do not make the Gemini man feel like he has to commit to having a chance with you. This can be difficult, but it is important to note in order to recognize how a Gemini man operates.
A Gemini man is going to feel most free to explore you and who you are when they know that you aren’t the only option. When they have all the options open to them and they still choose to go after you, that is how you know a Gemini man is ready to commit.
This can be a frustrating process but hopefully, one that doesn’t last for a long time after they recognize that you are the one that they really want.
Just be on the lookout for signs that they are letting go of all the other options and committing to you.
6. Ignore Him
This is going to drive them insane. As I have covered, a Gemini man is all about keeping his options open. So, when you ignore him, it is like he is losing an option.
The Gemini man cannot resist the urge to open up all pathways of thinking and perceiving the world. And people fall under this umbrella.
So, when you shut them out a little, they will begin to increase their efforts to open up the lines of communication again.
They will not be able to stop thinking about losing you as an option when you push them away. As a result, you’ll see them become hyper-flexible to attempt to meet any need that will help you stay with them and in their life.
The important thing to remember here is to close him out a little bit, but not completely ghost him. If he feels there is no chance at all he will just discount you as an option to pacify his need to feel that he still has all the choices he wants.
Like I said, a Gemini man will not chase you unless the conditions are perfect! As a result, it is important to stay consistent in your approach.
Don’t be afraid to pull back some! Sometimes Geminis need to be reminded that you aren’t just going to stay freely available to them forever. They need to pull the trigger if they want to cash in on your affection.

Should I Play Hard To Get To Make A Gemini Man To Chase Me?
Playing hard to get is basically the best rule of thumb to follow if you want to make a Gemini man chase you. This cerebral man needs a woman who can feel like a challenge to him. Life would be boring if he got everything he wanted.
Intrigue and mystery make his life exciting. And the best way to create this is to play hard to get with your Gemini man. If you just play open cards with your Gemini man, he might find it a little boring.
He likes to be able to work towards a goal as this gets his cogs turning. Anything a Gemini man gets too easily he doesn’t appreciate. It is always better for him to struggle a little bit, this is why you should play hard to get with him.
Give him enough of your energy to make him interested, but pull back when he least expects it to keep things interesting for him. I know this can be somewhat exhausting, but you will be happy you did this with him as he needs this stimulation. Keep him on his toes!
So, Do Geminis Like To Chase Or Be Chased? Final Thoughts
If I were to give you a very simple answer, I would say that Gemini men definitely prefer to be the ones doing all the chasing. Being chased is no fun for them because it means that you are making it too easy for him.
He is a man that needs that extra stimulation and excitement. This is the only way he stays interested in a woman. I know playing games isn’t always fun and it can be exhausting to do, but if you lean back and let him come to you, it’ll be more worth it in the end.
Gemini men may think they like to be chased, but the truth is, no man does, and if he does, then that should be somewhat of a red flag for you. Let him lead, and try not to force things. Be yourself and remember that you are a prize.
Is Your Gemini Man Avoiding Commitment?
Does your Gemini man pull away or get quiet when you’ve just had a deep emotional connection? Does he seem to disappear just when you thought he was getting closer? Have you felt confused by his hot and cold behavior?
If so, then he might have an avoidant attachment style.
He could be Dismissive Avoidant and completely terrified of commitment… Or he could be Fearful Avoidant and REALLY want commitment… But get scared when he feels himself getting closer to you.
If he has either one of these attachment styles, you’re going to end up feeling extremely confused at times.
And both are caused by childhood trauma.
When you can see the scared little boy inside him that had to shut down his feelings if he’s dismissive avoidant… Or have a parent not provide his needs consistently if he’s fearful avoidant…
It can make it easier to have empathy and compassion for his confusing and frustrating behavior. But that won’t fix it.
And while advice on attachment styles can be helpful…
What you really need to stop this frustrating hot and cold cycle is to understand him better.
It will stop him from pulling back when you begin feeling closer. And it will accomplish this in only 30 days.
So no more crying yourself to sleep when he pulls back… No more feeling incredibly confused. And no more wondering what in the heck is going on with him…
Even if he has an avoidant attachment style.
