Him, “I want to tell you something, dear, for all this time that I’ve known you, I have fallen for you, I love you.”
Her, “I am so sorry but I can’t be in love with you. I don’t feel the same but I really want us to stay just friends.”
Just about every man who has ever had interests in love has ever faced rejection when they confessed their emotions to one of these daughters of Eve. It’s such a trying moment. However, there is a tendency amongst some women that when she rejects a man, she still expects him to simply go back to being just a friend.
I don’t know how they think but for them, I assume, they think that reversing emotions is as easy as swiping a credit card. Swoosh. Probably because, by refusing to put themselves in our shoes, they’re ignorant to the fact that a man declaring his feelings doesn’t want you to be just a friend but his girlfriend, a wife, his children’s mother, nothing less. He either gets that or he bails out completely because in such situations, it is either it or it’s totally not. Women can’t know how this feels because they (except a very rare few of them) never have the courage to take the first step & confess their feelings to a guy. Chickens just.
Now, my question is, if you say no to a guy’s proposal, then why should he decline back to keeping you around as just a friend? He doesn’t want you for only that & you’re not interested in what he plans to make you in his life so it’s safe to say that the whole friendship is canceled because you’re both not interested in the same thing.
And, why do some women act surprised or mad when the guy decides to abandon the whole friendship after turning him down? Why do you want him to keep around for something he doesn’t want? He wanted you as a better half but you wanted him as just a friend so it’s only fair that he leaves because ya’ll aren’t ready to be on the same page.
