Ha ha! True. Not my missed connection. The point I’m making is that women often react reflexively by saying no. They don’t always mean no. One of Eric’s ex’s, a very pretty girl tells the story of how, in high school, a guy she liked suddenly called her home and asked her out and she heard herself saying no even as she wanted to go out with him. As Janka likes to say, women are in automatic no mode and are looking for a reason to say no. Eric and I love these missed connections posts because a surprisingly large number are from women who said no – or in some other way disqualified themselves – and later regretted it. This thread was just an observation about the behavior of women, not any specific advice for dealing with no’s.
