Do men change their minds?Page 1 of 1    
Do men change their minds about women? As in, I wasn't into her before, but now I am? I've noticed that some women say "Oh I couldn't stand him when I first met him," or "I thought he was the biggest dork." But you don't usually hear men say that. Can men become interested later on? Or is it that if they reject you once, that's it. Could stuff develop as time goes on?

Sure they do...

Once they figure out the chick with the big boobs is really an airhead...

OR

When they figure out the chick they THOUGHT was an airhead, has big boobs...

But you don't usually hear men say that.

Maybe because men don't communicate with each other the same way women do. So maybe men say it, but you don't understand what we're saying.


Can men become interested later on?

Yes, men can learn, understand, reason, and change their minds.


Could stuff develop as time goes on?

Yes. But just as easily things could get worse, and they wish they stuck with their earlier decision.


Or is it that if they reject you once, that's it.

To some this is always true.
To some this is never true.
To some this is sometimes true and dependent upon the other person just as much as him.

No, none of us has EVER gone from being not interested in a woman, to being interested in her.

That kind of thing only happens in Harlequin publications and in unattractive women's imaginations.

I'm sure you can guage the depth of my seriousness.

Since everyone changes their minds...that means men do too. Some more often than us women.

For me, at least, there would have to be some kind of drastic shift in the woman. Like she used to be 300 lbs, but lost 180 of them. Or she used to look like her face was in a cuisinart, but got plastic surgery. Or something of that nature.

If it is a person's personality, and not their looks that turned me off, chances are its not going to change.

Sure, they decide a woman is to psycho for their tastes, don't they?

Don't know about them changing their mind once they are already intially not attracted to what a woman has to offer...Maybe some enlightened creatures do...They are human as well, after all.

Yes, and it could just as easily go the other way.

Once a man rejects you doesn't mean it's all over. Maybe he just didn't like your approach. If you come back at him some other time with a different attitude, the whole thing could turn around. For the most part men aren't very moody. But we do sometimes have our head up our arse. It doesn't mean we don't like you, just that we're
not thinking much about a woman's company at that time.

I know I don't change my mind but then again I dont ever really put anyone out of consideration. I keep my options open and what attracts me to someone is getting attention from her or knowing that she's into me.

I'm always open to change my mind about anyone. But I'm usually not very judgemental in the beginning, anyways. A person really has to try hard to rub me the wrong way before I'll decide I don't like them. After that it'll take quite the same amount of effort to change my mind though. I get alond with most everyone in general though.

What I'd like to know is do women ever change their minds? Seems like I'm always getting permanently placed in the dreaded "friend" catagory.

Heh... Better question, do women ever MAKE UP their minds about anything? Kidding kidding.... I'm gonna go hide now...

Yes a man will change his mind.
When ever his mom, his wife, sister or girlfriend tell him to.

Sure often times if the woman is trying to impress she's not being herself. Some, as good as they may think they are, are BAD at flirting and come off as over needy, clingy, or what's the word I'm looking for... permiscuous

Also if they think things aren't going well thier mood may change for the worse making them seem like a b**ch. If we have the opportunity to spend time with them later when they've given up and mellowed out they could be seen as a whole new person.

I find it is the complete opposite: Men fall in love faster...but fall out of love faster.

Its about supply and demand ... if a guy hasn't gone on a date for a while then maybe. Or just plain old getting drunk and something happens.

Yes. But not very often.

In truth, women are apt to say "I don't fancy him at all", and then be seen snogging the same guy, on lots of different occasions. Guys, either they do, or they don't. They do change their minds, but not very often. It's more of a long shot with guys.

If you want someone to change their mind about you, I'd stick with girls.

Possible...

idk, never happened to me. Usually if I was interested within the first conversation, I'm not going to get bored too easily =)

Way to go with the undisguised misogyny, Neitzchean.

Hey, was "Nietzschean" taken or something ? I'm sure that dead loony would have loved the irony.

Change their minds? Boobs and Bj's can't miss! It's when things don't happen that guys change their minds...as in "Which head should I think with today??"

our minds don't change, our feelings do.
