This happened to me recently, and in the nicest way possible, I can't get over the fact that he honestly thought there's a possibility I'd say yes.
Nothing I've ever said or done around him has ever implied that I'd be interested in something more than a business relationship, but he seemed genuinely upset and confused when I turned him down.
Problem is now, he won't drop it, and he brings it up every time we interact.
Have you ever experienced this?
2mo Just to update after seeing all the replies, I did NOT mean it in a "he's not good enough for me" way, I meant it purely based on the fact that I've never shown an interest, so why was he so shocked when I said no? I guess I probably could have phrased the original question better...
I've been asked out by girls i don't find attractive at all, but i've never really though ill of them like that. More that it's sweet and hopefully they find someone who is into them. Guess that put's me into the nice guy category.
no, i don't think like that at all. I try to treat people with respect and show them compassion especially if they would do something that took courage like that. It's a shame that you thought the opposite. But at least you didn't say it.
Usually, i may push my luck one time as i will have to gain confidence in order to go for it and approach a woman... but when i got a no, i just skip. The last thing i want is to be with someone i have to convince that she wants me lol...
If really you'r not interested, say it straight and forever , no!
WOMEN DO IT TO ME ALLLLLL THE TIME!!! LITERALLY IT'S LIKE THEY HAVE NO FILTER AND LET THEIR EMOTIONS DICTATE THEIR ACTIONS. HOW COULD THEY ACTUALLY THINK IT WOULD HAPPEN IS BEYOND ME. THEY ARE MORE GUILTY THEN MEN. FACTS!
