- Who we are dating (although that's generally common knowledge).
- Why we are not dating (awkwardly dominated by Type A female).
- What constitutes dating (3 P's, musings, and other random stories).
M: So, I asked out this girl a couple weeks ago and she said NO. Flat out refused me.
F (Not me): Ohh, really? That's terrible.
(In these situations I can't figure out if the male is: 1. Playing his why-it-is-so-hard-to-be-a-guy card, 2. Trying to elicit sympathy?, or 3. LYING.)
WHO are these women?
My rule is, give the guy a chance. At least one chance. It's just a date. A first date, at that. Maybe you feel different or maybe you're one of those "no" gals, but I figure, why not give it a whirl. He had the courage to ask you out and you should have the courtesy/courage to say yes. Besides, it's. just. a. first. date.
*Note To Single Men: Clearly, you are asking out the wrong women.
