I'll give the same answer to you I've given to a thousand other women in your age bracket. It's because you're dealing with boys. Men don't act that way, but boys certainly can.
Thank you, ma'am. I appreciate that.
Because the want you to feel the way they did when they got turned down...don't feel bad about yourself if you are talking about the men on here, they are probably some big nasty drunk men with no profile pic or a fake pic that have nothing to do but sit infront of their moms computer and jack off because they want keep a job.
Two possibilities:<br />
1. They expected you to be interested in them and when you turned them down, you bruised their ego.<br />
2. You made them think you were interested in them, and when you turned them down they felt lied to.
Well it also depends on exactly how you are turning them down. Its one thing to smile and say without sarcasm "thanks but sorry i'm not looking for anything right now" and its a totally different thing when you look them over from bottom up, get all bitchy and say "beat it pal". If you're doing something along the lines of the second version, don't be surprised if you're insulted. Treat others like you want to be treated.
Rejection hurts, so they want to hurt you back, I suppose. They're gambling with their self-esteem when they come to you and ask you out. What do you do to keep from hurting them as you turn them down? We *are* talking about dates, aren't we?
they can't deal with rejection. Don't put in on yourself. It's they that need to understand. You haven't done anything but make a choice.. They took offense to that choice.. they get mad at your choice your better off and they aren't worth the effort or regret.
Why bad about yourself? The fact that they were creeps that would put you down for saying no, says you have great judgement concerning men. I think that is wonderful. Go girl.<br />
As for why? Because they lack the maturity and decency to graciously accept a ladies no.
They are just looking to sleep with you
Don't feel bad about yourself - it is their problem!
Nice guys don't act that way. I have had that too though ;-(
they're not really nice guys...a nice guy wouldn't insult you...his mother would have taught him better.
Would you feel better by saying yes?
Because they are not gentlemen and don't handle rejection graciously.
don't turn em down...?
she's speaking about those 5% she turned down
i know everything... didn't you know ;)
