This whole consent thing is really confusing me, and I think my self-esteem and confidence is taking a blow from it.
I know what consent is. I know that when a person says "no" then they haven't gave me consent to whatever it is. But does consent have to be verbal?
I was completely into this girl I met recently. I was actively flirting with her, touching her and making her laugh, but I just didn't know if I should ask to kiss her or just go in for the kiss regardless.
Our system tends to want us guys to ask before we do anything. But then it makes us men look weak if we have to ask and not lead. Inevitably nothing happened and I must have disappointed her.
I feel like I'm losing my masculinity over things like this too, it's a strange feeling. I'm quite masculin generally, but stripping this "leading" role from me is making me feel weak.
Not once have i ever asked. If you desire the girl, just kiss her and she will either kiss you back or pull away. From there it's pretty easy to judge (if she won't let you finger her then she aint putting out).
