They never said a word about not being interested, and instead thought it would be best to just not look at me, speak to me, or communicate with me. This was someone I knew for

Coming from just a human being, that doesn't work still, because you're just wasting the other person's time. He can never get that time back. Once he finds/figures out you're lying, you'll lose all his
Guys suck at taking hints. Trying to give them hints is about as productive as talking to a brick wall or watching paint dry.At all.I see that in a lot of cases the women don't want to be direct, and just kind of lead him on, hoping he'll get the hint. Well, ladies, coming from a guy, that doesn't work.
So, I saw a question about letting a guy down easy, which inspired me to write this MyTake. I have noticed throughout my 17 years that women seem to feel guilty about rejecting men who ask them out.
