Short and simple post today, with a short and simple message to men:
Learn how to say “No” to women.
Seriously, if you have trouble with it now, learn to do it. Your life will become so much better for it.
And, dare I say, so will the lives of most of the women who are part of it.
I might be a bit presumptuous here, but I think most men spend a lot of time trying to get women to say “Yes” to various things. But learning to say “No” to when when necessary can get you just as much. In fact, I would warrant a guess that you saying “No” just might be a factor in her saying “Yes.”
This is easier said than done, of course. We men have an instinctive desire to please women. We don’t like it when when are upset. And of course, we are fearful of being tagged a misogynist or the like. Couple that with a Western
upbringing indoctrination, and most men in the West end up as the ones saying “Yes.”
So perhaps some of my male readers would be kind enough to offer their advice on how they learned to overcome all of that. Guys, what happened you learn to say “No” to women?
