“I’m not going to ask you again Becky”
This was followed by a head tilt and squinting eyes implying;
A) that I should consider myself lucky I was asked at all
B) that I was letting all of my hopes and dreams go with my ‘no’
The no stuck. What stays with me long after that conversation ends though is what is going through this gentleman’s mind?
Not only now and in this exact moment, but later, with this ultimatum mentality, what other behaviours are going to manifest themselves through your need to belittle my no. To try to negate my ability to be clear and concise with my very first fucking answer. To try to incur self doubt when it’s you in fact who’s being rejected.
I don’t care to spend time with someone who can’t respect my no. If the answer to a no is a mental tantrum, foot stomping in the form of threats then you have a long road of learning what it means to accompany a real woman in this life.
