People protect themselves by hiding their true desires and feelings, because admitting them would make them vulnerable to rejection. If a guy comes out and tell you how he feels, he gives you the luxury of deciding how to respond -- that is, it's win-win for you, while he's risking being embarrassed. The way people act when dating is a succession of small admissions of affection passing back and forth, so they can each judge how committed the other person is while still having the option to back out and save face.<br />
Really confident people might come out and make a grand declaration, but not everyone has the guts. If you don't, you can't expect the other person to.
im hungry. you're right that was easy
You want us to tell you we're horny every seven seconds?
Because they aren't women. We can't expect them to feel and express themselves the way WE do. <br />
If you let that aspect go, and just accept them? You will be so much happier in your relationships.
For me, 9 times out of 10, if I don't tell a girl how I feel, its because something stressful is going on and I would rather not talk about it and meditate on a solution quietly. 9 times out of 10 its nothing she did or didn't do that has me closed up and not willing to talk. There is that 1 time of 10 it does happen because of her, but most of the time I meditate on my problems quietly.
I feel worried about implicit gender roles and stereotypes because I fit them so poorly and feel like less of an individual when someone refers to it like that......<br />
There you go. Honest.<br />
I also hate sports. Compliment and admit some men are good looking...I love a good drama and poetry and no I'm not gay....only when I'm smiling and happy because that's what that word means.
I guess we're confused... lol
What do you mean how do I feel, How do you think I feel? Well that is not what I was feeling so I guess you will not know how I feel. I feel bad that you just gave up and did not find out how I really feel.
Because if women really understood what most men are thinking, most women wouldn't have anything to do with us.
I was talking about women, not girls and I understand. It isn't about innocence it's about men and their needs, no, their obsession with sex. Most men will tell you anything to get you into bed. Women really don't understand this on the level most men do.
Fear of rejection?
No, of course not. Then again...did you ask him?
No it won't. Then again...did you ask him?
I can see how that'd be frustrating. Give him a little time though :-)
