The comfort of having a person who’s been down with you for years is something that cannot be taken lightly.
As such, risking type of friendship for a relationship might not seem like it’s worth the risk to a man at all.
In about 95% of the cases, once a man has placed a woman in a category, she’s stuck there.
It’s not based on anything scientific, like a list of things she does and doesn’t do or some random point system either.
In that last one out of ten, he’s not interested enough in risking the friendship to pursue a relationship.
Growing up, I’ve been told women know within the first five to ten seconds of meeting a man whether they’re going to sleep with him.
I’m sure that sounds weird with conventional wisdom saying, “what better person to risk ruining everything for, than the person you’ve already been through everything with?
”I’m not sure the answer can be fully fleshed out via text.
Girl gets more brazen in her attempts until she finally asks boy why he doesn’t want to be her boyfriend.
Girl thinks boy is awesome and wants boy to be her boyfriend. Boy notices the hint but ignores because he doesn’t like girl.
He’s not worried about the consequences and ramifications of a failed relationship. If a man has been secretly crushing on a woman and she presents an opportunity to take the next step, he’s going to jump at the chance.
If you’ve been placed in something other than the girlfriend category, you’re going to get something other than “yes.” It’s really that simple.
The bottom line is, nine times out of ten if a man tells a woman “I don’t want to ruin a friendship” when pressed about dating said woman, he’s just not that into her.
