“That’s sweet but I have a boyfriend.”
“I’m not dating right now but thank you.”
“I wouldn’t be interested but I appreciate the compliment.”
And my favorite?
“Wow! Thank you I sure would!”
Each of these examples is miles ahead of you needing to apply the dreaded resting bitch face when a guy approaches you.
Instead when he tries to speak with you?
You can treat him with RESPECT.
Treat him like the real human being he actually is.
Albeit one who is interested in you.
Instead of acting like he’s not even there?
Why don’t you encourage him instead?
But you have been taught from a very young age, you have to head him off at the pass unless you already see him as “romantic potential.”
He’s a predator right?
Even if he’s not?
It’s too RISKY to even give him a chance.
And yes I will admit that there are SOME guys out there who are indeed insincere, and possibly even dangerous.
But the percentage of those?
They might be a handful of all guys.
To avoid them?
Don’t go wandering down dark alleys at night.
How refreshing it would be to encounter more of you girls, ready to give a guy a chance before you judge and sentence him.
Make eye contact.
So he can notice something besides just your body for a change.
Put your wonderful personality on display.
Thank him when he compliments you!
I know I’m fighting an uphill battle here, especially on the streets of Vancouver. In Yaletown if you’re not obsessed with walking your dog, the sidewalk has completely enamored you.
As always why I’m saying this?
I’m hoping to be a catalyst.
While you work so hard to ignore those guys?
Your next romantic friend might just be walking up to you!
What do you think? Is that resting bitch face of yours really getting you anywhere, or are you closing and steeling yourself off to the possibility of romantic love finding you?
