There are way too many guys who either yell at you for being a heartless bitch who refuses to give a nice guy a chance or take "no" as a challenge. I have yet to have a guy accept a straight-up no until I played the psycho bitch card on him. Even then, some guys see it as a turn-on. And they say women are difficult!
60- why would a stranger, who is a nice guy, yell at you for turning him down. Goes to show you made the right choice by saying no. And why can't we just be honest? Why do women feel pressured into lying? Why can't we answer politely with, "I find it very flattering but I'm not interested." And that's that. It's the truth. Things might be awkward but awkward shouldn't over take the truth. The truth really does set you free.
That's true. Some men do get angry when turned down, and what? Punch a girl in the face? Call her names? Push her down? Make her feel bad? If that's the case, why on earth are women even at these bars/clubs where these men are, so called men because real men don't treat women like that. Or anyone for that matter. If the situation becomes aggressive or turns left, then you turn right and walk away. Doing what's right isn't always easy but it's always right. If a situation like that wants to be avoided altogether, start from the beginning and don't go to clubs.
71 while I see your point and agree to an extent, I don't believe women should have to stop going out to have a good time because some men are assholes. You can usually tell which ones will take it the wrong way so in that situation I believe lying is better then putting yourself at risk if an embarrassed angry douche retaliates
No. The men who are harassing and assaulting women are the criminals, not their victims. They need to be kicked out of clubs the second they are spotted, and society as a whole needs to stand together and tell these men their behaviour is not acceptable. It is not the responsibility of women to hide away at home where their very existence won't "provoke" criminals.
@#71 - If women decided to hide from these men, we would never leave home! Unfortunately, if they behave that badly in clubs/bars, they will still approach a woman the same way at the grocery store, library, mall, gym, and any other public place. Alcohol might loosen the tongue and lower inhibitions, but most times, the badly behaved male actually hasn't had much to drink.
Tell him everything on the phone is spoilt except the clock. Usually works :p
