Hey you know what, Im female but I agree with you. I see so many of my friends do this:

friend: he told me he just wants to be friends, what does that mean??

me: he wants to be friends

friend: Do you think hes in denial or scared, really does want to be with me but just doesnt know how to show it???

me: no, he just wants to be friends and doesnt want to get romantically involved or committed with you

Friend: think I should go over there and talk to him some, show him how much I care about him??

me: AAARRGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH


That being said though - come on, there are guys who are just the same. Denial is a gender-traversed state of being : )

LMAO...we must hang in the same circles, Crystalise! BUT...there is a difference between not being able to take a hint, and outright denial when it was told to you! LOL

So....WHAT WAS the OP trying to hint at?! WHAT don't women "get?" If anyone can really answer this...they would be rich!! LOL

I can take a hint as well as the next person, I just prefer not to "guess" so I ASK! Or say something, I find the direct approach avoids confusion. Geez, what are we afraid of that we can't say something? If someone's that shy maybe they shouldn't be leaving their cave.

Hints? Waste of time.

I am not accountable to information I have not been given. A person can be indirect, but it's far simpler and saves lots of time to just USE ... YOUR ... WORDS.

If you're not willing to say what you mean, don't be surprised when people think you don't mean what you say.

Y'all like us to be direct with you. In general you are direct when you speak to each other-you cut right to the heart of the matter. So..., that's what we have come to understand and expect from you. The truth can sting, but it hurts much less than confusion. Just be upfront and direct with us. We can take it!

the reason women cannot take a hint (at least for me anyway) is that we over analyze things to death. If men try to give us a "hint" instead of being man enough to just come right out and say it (and no, you dont have to be cruel) then we will come to our own conclusions. For instance, you tell a woman that you need some time and space. Well, then we come up with all kinds of conclusions, i.e. something is going on at work and wont have time for me right now, he has to go out of town to see a family member, he just wants some time to hang out with your friends, etc. See, if you dont want to be with us or continue to date us, then just tell us. We are big girls, we can handle it. Sure, we may shed a tear, but then the next day we will be mad as hell at you and tell all our friends that you were bad in bed or something

Listen, the point is that confrontation is hard and no one likes to do it. But be a grown up and just do it, quick and easy. Break up over an email or the phone if nothing else.

You assume that most people are direct. That's the problem.

I'm with you, Canadian. I have a woman who only calls or emails after a date with someone else goes bad. Sometimes she's a month or more between. She told me up front, she needs a slow hand, and baby steps. Apparently, that's not what she says to the 20 somethings she brings home to her bed. I no longer initiate contact with her.

Seriously, don't confuse girls with women. I let them chase me. If you aren't interested you won't bother. I get the hint.

Mean what you say and say what you mean. I dont play guessing games, im not a mind reader nor do i own a chrystal ball. If there is a problem,,speak up!! I dont even care if a man is too much of a wuss to say it face to face and has to resort to email or the phone (tho id RATHER it was face to face), just be honest and say what you gotta say!

If you can't explain the hint to us then it is no wonder she is not getting it.

Why not try: I need _____ or I would really like it if you_______ or an honest question for an honest answer.

Maybe you should be politely blunt....if that doesn't work...well there is always the slap up side the head technique...that is what women have been using on men for centuries...
