There is no being in the entire world who is as devious as a woman. And I would know.
Give me an ear men. Have you ever come across this lady and you just felt compelled to have her grace your life? Because you knew if you got to know each other, noodles will start tasting like spaghetti just because she brings so much richness to your life?
Well, women encounter such men too..and land them in a matter of hours. But for you men, before you can even spend sometime in the friend zone, you are met with a cold, hard, frozen NO.
Why do some women do that ish, though? Check out some of the reasons off the top of my head ( take out your pencils students because I am about to educate you):
1. String you along
If she knows you’re pretty stuck on her, she will keep saying no just to string you along in the eventual case she does say yes. In the meantime, you will be relegated to her clubbing buddy,her movie buddy, her shoulder to lean on etc.
This kind of no will be soft and accompanied by lots of reasons of why she is not ready for a relationship or to get intimate. It will never be harsh to shock you, but sweet to keep you believing you still got a shot.

2. More time to study you
The only truth a man will ever tell a woman is his name. And even that is debatable. It might be his nickname or his fourth Christian name after his fourth grandfather twice removed.
So a woman will tell you no, but still flirt with you as she studies you. The real you. Do not be lulled into a false sense of comfort thinking she has no clue about you.
She’s probably already snooped on you on social media, checked out your relatives as well and seen how the company you work for performs on a quarterly basis in case you are to be her future ex-husband.
Saying yes at first question is the cheapest of all cheap moves. So she will try her best to prolong everything to appear classy, a pseudo-virgin and most of all, principled.
After all, if Steve Harvey can advise women to wait three months before getting down with a guy, who is she to break the universal rule?
Saying NO gives her the opportunity to make sure the guy goes above and beyond the call of duty to recognize how worthy she is.
She will look forward to being flaunted to his friends, become a testimony of decent girls who just don’t give in and how she was “worth the wait”.
5. Play toy
Well, how else is she going to occupy her time? You will not be friend zoned but will be a plan b in case the guy she’s really after fails to notice her.
Girls love games. It makes her crazy with happiness when a guy would move traffic and political demonstrations just to please her.
She looks forward kubembelezwa with gifts, with road trips etc. And who doesn’t like seeing a man squirm in his shoes with all that pretense of being macho?
It has to be the highlight of a dating period, right?
7. Because she can
She knows she’s wanted. And for that she will want further validation. Saying NO will be the measure of seeing how the opposite sex perceives her. If she is worth the time or he was just in it for a hit and run.
Plus, it’s her only safe word. That’s if she does not have a black belt in karate.
