Most Helpful Guy
I'm sure most of them don't mean to mislead you and make you feel like you're wasting your time. The problem is that at some point in a girl's life, she'll learn (usually from a very scary confrontation) that being direct with guys isn't the best idea. So to avoid hurting a guy's feelings or provoking a harsh reaction, girls will learn to come up with excuses that are intended to soften the blow. As a general rule, if a girl likes you, she'll say "yes" when you ask her out, she won't act hot-and-cold towards you, and she'll want to be with you. Anything less should be interpreted as a lack of interest.
