There are women who feel guilty about their sexuality, and would
prefer all interactions to be the guy’s idea. If they say no in an ambiguous
way, certain guys (most, I’d say) won’t interpret it as no. (There are also
scum who don’t understand no when it is clearly intended as such–tone of voice
is a pretty good give-away–but that’s not what I’m talking about.) When I
come along and take no at face value, women don’t beg and plead and tell me
they really meant yes. Instead, they go looking for another guy who is willing
to put up with the ambiguity.

Are such women worth it? Maybe not. But life gets pretty lonely when 99.9%
of the people you meet aren’t worth the trouble.
