Most Helpful Guy
There is a saying that clearly spells out guys mistakes with girls. "Women don't lie, men don't listen. Her response to you asking for a date was crystal clear if you took the time to listen and not let your ego trip you up. Part of the problem with men not understanding what a woman is trying to say is that they use a language not easily understood by men. It's called
"womanese." Once a man becomes even slighty fluent in the language, women become less of a mystery.
So on to your case. When asking a woman out on a date, any answer other than yes means no. Guys miss this important clue because they don't understand the speak. When she answered, "maybe" you were dead in the water. You didn't have a chance! But you still refused to accept what she was saying by thinking "She didn't flat out reject me," and that "I'm not ready to give up so easily..." She wants nothing to do with you romantically. But like most men you will not accept this and return for more embrassment and another beating.
I recommend you stop wasting your time on this woman and move on another one that is more receptive to your advances. Next time keep your ears open and your eyes peeled for that not well understood language that these beautiful women speak. Women don't lie, men don't listen.
