I’m Interested In You. That Doesn’t Mean I’m Trying To Have Sex With You.

The flip side of the unleashing the bounds on how we interact with each other, via the liberation movement and the like, is that we still do not have sets of rules that are universally accepted/known when it comes to meeting other people and there many desperate people out there that want find someone to share their lives with.

One of the patterns I’ve seen over the years is that a woman will often mention her boyfriend/fiance/husband quickly in the conversation in order to potentially defuse the conversation. The person may actually not exist, but it informs the other person in a subtle way that there is no interest beyond polite conversation.

It would be nice if people had a way of politely expressing interest and just as politely refusing it without a loss of “face” that can be traumatic or create drama.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
