As I was cleaning up about two week ago, I chanced upon an article which I tore from the pages of a Chalk magazine. The issue was June 2010 and the fact that I kept it all these years reminded me why when I saw it again. The article was titled Tease Test and written by Patricia Lazatin. In the article, a tease was defined as a “person who knowingly [leads] someone on without any intention of following through.”
Seven types of teases were identified to help the reader determine if they are encountering one and how to avoid them. Reiterated from the same article, each has been listed below.
