Not taking “No” for an answer right away
That’s all it should take is just one “No.” For example, “No” I don’t want to go out with you. “No” I don’t want to kiss you. “No” I don’t want to fool around yet. Whatever the request, if the answer was “No,” the request should have stopped then and there. But we were almost primed from girlhood to believe that it was common practice for men to go on the chase and not give up so easily. The culture was that male sexual drive was allowed to exist uninhibited and that we just had to deal with it, even if dealing with it was exhausting. I see clearly now that any man who doesn’t take the first “No” doesn’t deserve your time.
