Why don't guys ask for directions? Is it a macho thing? Of course you could always change where it is you want to go.
(Leaping here.) Same can be said with relationships. But then I can't help but realise that communication is a two-way street. I raise this as I've taken out a number of ladies where the chemistry wasn't quite right. Only one was open and honest enough to tell me straight. The rest just faded away. I can't help but view this as cowardly behaviour. And it's us guys that get this rep!
I think everyone would be a lot happier if everyone asked for directions. (Even if it's to the exit door.)
