So what if women just don’t want to be anything more than friends with you?
First of all its inappropriate period. Would you be proud to do that in front of your parents or her parents and your unmarried? If not, that's why you don't do it. You always males your intent verbally clear. Most women sadly would not be bold enough to tell you anything. They just expect you would read their minds.
what if your intent is friendship but then you develop feelings for her?
If your a friend why would you touch her inappropriately and your supposed to be a friend? It doesn't matter what your developing. Haven't you been thought to always keep your hands to yourseld? She's going to wonder "what the he'll is he doing?" If she doesn't say anything that it's sexual harrassment and she's petrified. Don't do it. If you say you have feelings, tell the person. Otherwise you don't know what she is going to think of you.
I don’t touch people inappropriately.
And telling a friend you fell for them almost always results in a Rejection and lost friendship.
Well see that's why you shouldn't do either because then that means that your intentions are not pure. Relationships are not about you. It's about the other person. If you are not really about the other person and caring about their well-being, then you should not be with them. And if they reject you and don't want to be your friend because of that, realize it's because what you chose to do. We often know who's right for us or not within the first few weeks unless we not really agreeing with dating friends. If that's going to be your attitude of mindset then you better find somebody else.
Well I asked a friend out on a date recently and she said she’s not ready to date anyone right now because she’s still trying to figure out what she’s doing. But she wants to hang out with me more and get to know me better. What’s the right thing to do in this situation?
You decide what's more important. Her well being or you wanting something more than what she can't give you. Whatever you decide will show her if your worth the jump or best to leave hanging on the cliff.
Her well being. I’ll leave her alone then.
Asker, you should focus on your well being, and that is just moving on from this woman. Lots of women say, "I'm not ready for a relationship right now" but really just meant they aren't interested. Which is fine.. just move on and talk to other women
@MrNameless I thought they all say that when they’re not interested.
@MrNamelessDon't give him any more pain than what he's already feeling pain then what he's already going through. And please stop assuming that every woman that says that don't want to date them which is not true. When I say that I've actually mean it. Has nothing to do about me not being interested in that person, but that I cannot be responsible for such a serious relationship like that. Especially in something that I don't know about. I at least be truthful, and the best thing that you can do is give the person the benefit of the doubt. What you're saying is entirely selfish. Only he would know whether or not the person being released to stay or not. It is not for you or I to judge.
Because when you do that, you're going to give us a good reason to not date him in the first place. Which all red flags. Selfishness is not something we want in a relationship.If a woman is truly sincere, or she got to say is that she's not interested. It's up to you to decide to take this back that you said she is not interested. If a girl says that she is unsure, respect the fact that she said she's unsure. We go to a lot of emotional changes, if not hormonal changes on top of that. We have more than enough stress in our plate as it is. Why do we need extra stress added on top of that? That's like doing that to a guy who's also going through the same thing himself. Why couldn't you all that stress? Everybody deserves to be treated with fairness. Everybody who have an interest in a relationship, should have the right to be investing himself into one as long as they have the right reasons for it. Again, it's all about having respect for other people.
A person who plays manipulative games just does that, manipulative games. Please don't have those bias negative views about women like that. Because it's disrespectful to all women.
