Back when I was dating I gradually found out that "I'll think about it" really meant no, since nothing happened after that. I got to the point where I would just walk away instead of waiting around for her to "think about it".

Because they don't want to hurt your feelings.

Some women instead of saying just no, go out and hurt your feelings on purpose.

I one thing I forgot to say: even if a woman don't say to you (general you) no directly, the lack of a clear yes should give you a clue that is highly that she is not interested in you and, therefore, it's time to move on. It shouldn' be as difficult as many men claim it is, but as I said before, many men won't acept a no for answer and, for that reason, they may keep waiting for a direct answer even though is a waste of time.

I was late to the discussion, so my answer to this question has pretty much been stated.

But because I want to make this comment relative, so here is a picture of a bunny with a pancake on its head:

I evade questions all the time. It's not just a woman thing.

Why do you evade questions, Phersu?

because when we say "No" we get "why?" "why?" "why?" "why?"
or we give real reasons like "I don't find you attractive" or "I'm interested in someone else" and we're instantly seen as rude and cruel.

</experience>

Generally, as women, we are expected to be courteous and polite, so we sugar coat because a lot of people can't take criticism and would see anything less than a "yes" as rude.


And, at least for me - No does mean no. not "no till you convince me otherwise" But I'm honest to a fault anyway.



Yep, it's completely this. Every time I've ever said no it's always followed by someone badgering me about it nonstop. If I've given an actual reason then it's always that I'm heartless and this is why I'll never find love, or something to that extent. Yep, cruel bitch right here.



^ This.
I agree with these two. It actually infuriates me.

Too many men base their self-worth on female approval and a "NO" is a really bad word that deals heavy damage. What follows are desperate manoeuver to save some scrap of that, from being rude to less plesent displays of a dying ego. I've hardly ever see guys just take a no and walk away. The question should rather be, why are so many men such self-loathing pussy beggers that they can't take a no? And why would they keep wasting their time on one woman who already said no instead of moving on? Mysteries beyond my headache capacity.


Perhaps I can venture a guess. In the traditional concept of masculinity, part of what determines the value of a man is his ability to get with the opposite sex. When they fail to meet that, they become upset, and probably would rather not accept that. Now none of that means that they are justified in acting the way they do. Quite the opposite. Their bad behavior is on them, but the conception of masculinity should be less aligned with ability to get with the opposite sex. As to their repeated attempts are likely due to them believing persistence is more valued by people in this situation than it actually is. I apologize if this comes off as mansplaining.

On a general note, I am ashamed to share a gender with some of the guys referred to in this thread. Ugh

Everyone has a different reason, for example she wants to be your friend but not your girlfriend, so by saying no strait out she could lose that, and a infinite amount of other reasons, either way people in general should tread lightly with this subject

They never tell me no either... not something I usually complain about though.
