Telling a Man You are Taken Means Nothing to Him
Every woman gets badgered at least once a week by a guy, who under different circumstances may be nice, but can’t take a hint.
There once was a time (probably back when dinosaurs roamed the earth) when a man would approach a woman and she could politely decline. No harm, no foul. Both parties would go their ways.
Soon, a polite decline was no longer acceptable. Now, a woman had to give the guy a reason why. Was he not good looking enough, didn’t drive the car she liked, too tall, short, fat, skinny. What was it about him, he had to know right then and there. Her answer better be good.
Women wised up. They began spouting a response that left men stumped.
“I have a man.”
In man law, a man couldn’t disrespect the union of another man whether he knows said man or not. Once she said she was taken, it was as if the man inquiring felt for her boyfriend. You don’t disrespect a happy home. Karma is a bitch.
Yet, something shifted. man law became obsolete. For a woman to say she is with someone meant nothing.
“Excuse me Miss. I came over to tell you, I think you are beautiful.”
“Why, thank you.”
“I was wondering maybe we can keep in touch.”
“Well, I don’t give me number out like that. I have a boyfriend.”
“Oh. Well do you love him? I just want to be friends with you.”
“Yes, I love him. What kind of girlfriend would i be if i made friends with random men?”
“If you let me be your friend, you’d be a happy girlfriend.”
Ladies, if you have ever had one of these conversations you know how exhausting they can be.
Men, since when did it become ok to be a snake?
Let me let the fellas in on a little secret: If a woman is interested she will give you her info, boyfriend or not. If you have to interrogate her for an e-mail address you are doing too much and she’s more sympathetic than smitten.
It’s my belief that the men who don’t care about a woman having a man are the men who don’t want anything more than sex. Chances are they have a woman or women of their own. “Have an affair, act like an adult for once,” is their motto. These are the men who also don’t ask “Do you have a man?” They don’t care and won’t ask because they don’t want to answer it in return.
Saying “I have a man” carries no weight anymore especially if you really do have a man.
I guess a safe bet is to be married or wear a fake wedding band.
