Seriously, so many times I've gotten to know a young lady, texted her, built rapport with her, and then made clear my intentions through compliments and telling her I like her--you know, did everything according to social protocol. No matter what, however, it always results in the girl ceasing communication with me (not responding to my texts and calls), ignoring me, moving seats away from me in classes, refusing to say "hi" back when I greet her, etc.
What the fucking fuck? What is this stupid bullshit? I don't mind rejection; trust me, I've gotten used to it. But what the fuck is this? Why won't they just flat out tell me that they're not interested so that I can stop wasting my valuable damn time? All it does is seriously piss me off.

I prefer to be direct. I hate when people are indirect with me and I don't want to lead someone on. The very thing men ask for (directness) seems to be the thing they lose their shit over most quickly, however. I tell guys I don't want to talk to them, to leave me alone, to stop being creepy etc and then they write rants about awful women like me who have the guts to just be forthright and honest. No man takes rejection well, and few actually take it like a proverbial man these days so no matter what it seems like we women are so domineering and offensive.4

I get that girls are put in danger when they hurt a man's ego who an potentially turn and physically harm them. I completely get that. I really do.
It's just a real shame.
Because so many girls are quicker to tell a guy she isn't interested because he's "too nice" instead of "not very good-looking" or "socially awkward".
So now, we have a generation of men convinced that instead of taking better care of themselves or working on their people skills to do better with women, what they really need to do is become sociopaths.
This is a problem.3
