Dudes really need to practice “Cool! Lemme kno if you need anything.”
It’s the near perfect response to women saying “No.”/“Im good.”/“I’d rather wait for X.” Etc.
And it’s a lot simpler than giving us a 13 minute run on sentence validating whatever the fuck we’re tryna politely to shut down.
Y’all don’t *always* have something of value to contribute. Us saying “No.” is not a dig at you, it’s not patronizing you, it is not a statement on your validity as a person. Your inclusion just becomes intrusion in certain contexts.
