    The usually unified men and women of TSR will be torn apart by this thread.

    As the title suggests, what's up with you guys and taking a hint??

    If it's not "please leave me alone" or "i really want to see you" no matter how hard we try, you guys never seem to pick up on a hint.....

    Is this down to just bad hint giving skills, or just an inability to recognise them???
    Give us an example?

    Is it our fault for not taking the hint or your fault for being sneaky and hinting instead of being forward and honest.

    Not really. I'd rather that than have a girlfriend complain that I'm **** at taking hints (which has happened before).
    hmmm s'pose... :rolleyes:

    It's always horrible when people don't make something clear. Males AND females should make it clear how they feel. Would solve so many problems.

    Haha! Don't worry about it.

    It would be a lot easier if you women just spoke your mind instead of dropping hints, though.
    We can see hints (usually), but you should be more like (most) of us and just be open about speaking your mind. :yep:

    Much more fun.

    *shrugs* Personal preference comes into play a lot when subjects like this come up.

    I'd rather a girl tell me that she's feeling horny as opposed to feeling bored if she means the same thing, for example. Boredom can be quelled by an endless list, horniness, however... :sexface:

    Tell the guy what you want to say in full form not a hint...

    We are not cytologists... (Well most are not)
    And what would you do if a guy figured out the hint in a wrong/different way??

    speaking as a 20 year old virgin who has never kissed a girl before, i am unsure if i should make a move on a girl unless she gives obvious hints or tells me outright that she likes me.

    i dont want to appear desperate or be slapped in the face for making a move if she didnt want me to. i stay on the side of caution and if i think she might or might not want me to make a move, i will wait until the signals are more obvious.
    i wouldn't say just outright kiss a girl i get that, but if a girl is giving definite hints and signs she does like you, then an innocent peck on the cheek would be the way to go, it's a kinda go between of a hug and a full on kiss on the lips, and probably less likely to be received by a slap...


    but it boils down to the fact use girls don't always want to have to say what we want, then it seems like we're nagging and it gets us nowhere.....

    I'm with the guys on this onw. Being cryptic never solves anything. Too much is open to interpretation. Say exactly what you mean. The guy I'm seeing has been very encouraging of me to say what I mean rather than infer. I must say it's reduced misunderstandings quite a lot.

    applies for that. Most girls don't know what they want, they'll hint something you go with it and it's not what they want

    no i always reply. It's the same with phonecalls, her telling me i don't call her...while we were on the phone

    but suppose they aren't cryptic???

    for instance, when they know you have nothing to do, you know they're free and you mention A LOT well wouldn't it be nice to have some company.... how nice it'd be if we could meet up...

    how much more obvious and uncryptic could it be??

    This concerns both of your statements; women confuse the hell out of me :sad:
