I say what I mean and I mean what I say and stick to it. I also fully agree with Marge on what she said.

Fair enough "no"mean "no" and "yes" mean "yes",of course "maybe" mean "maybe".

Well Carl this could be a really loaded question.

For instance in the serious stuff and I am sure you know what I mean, No is definitely NO.

In the case where you want me to go zipcording down a mountainside, my initial no could be a bit wishy washy and with some persistent goading it might become a yes.

Or trying to get me to eat sea urchin sushi or something, that no could probably be overridden after some persuading to at least give it a shot.

Some security expert I think on "Oprah" made an interesting comment:


When a man says "no" it's the end of the conversation. When a woman says "no" it's the beginning of a negotiation.


No truer words were ever spoken!

No mean no.

If there's any doubt in your head that it means no, interpret it as no. It's a good way to keep from getting arrested.

(Quote) Elizabeth-929069 said: That is the benefit of "maybe" or "let me think about it" depending on the question of course. Do you like liver? Yes-- (I happen to like it if cooked right.) Do you want to see my pet boa? -- no --( I have a phobia.) Do you mode if I smoke? Yes, (I really have a problem with it.) Do you want to get a bit to eat? Yes-- (I'm interested in getting to know you) Do you want to go scuba diving? Maybe --(I've never done it and have to think if I feel brave :)) Etc. etc.. Or are you asking something else..... The more we know ourselves the more you will bet a straight answer. I think some might not, and so will consider the answer they think you are asking for to be a pleaser.

When you are ready to scuba dive, let me know and I will go with you. I learned to dive in college. Scuba diving has gotten better and better as more equipment is designed for the female form. My kids dive too. fluffy fluffy fluffy
