Alright, that’s enough, both sides stop it! Stop it right now before someone really gets hurt!
Guys – if you go out with a woman, and don’t want to see her again, then don’t make ANY indications that you are going to call her. Because when you do that, you lead her on, and that leads to the development of expectations and her eventually being let down.
Ladies – if you go out with a guy, and aren’t interested in going out with him again, then just say so. Please don’t say that you want to go out on another date in order to “spare our feelings,” because we all know you really aren’t doing it for us.
You see all this game playing and posturing is nonsense! Utter nonsense!
How old are we?
At 27 I consider myself to be a “big boy,” and think I am quite capable of handling the rejection that results from being turned down by a woman for a date. However, when I do begin to lose my patience, and act like a baby, is when women tell me they had a great time and want to go out again but never return my calls or texts trying to make plans.
I am fully aware that on the other side of this, women experience the same frustrations when it comes to men saying, at the end of the night, that they’ll call them, but never do; which is why I am calling out both sexes in this piece.
So just stop it. Stop all the game playing and rhetoric because that leads to people being led on, which I promise you hurts them more than if you would have just nicely rejected them in the first place.
