I understand women have it hard when they reject guys since men can harass them or use violence on them. This is a valid experience women go through unfortunately.
But I also noticed that women hate it when guys develop crushes on them. I am not talking about aromatics but this sense that they hate the actual crushes that guys develop on them. I think the reason being is either that they think guys are manipulating them or they are scared of ruining their friendship. Notice the words "I think" I am using here. I can get where they are coming from but I think these thoughts are incorrect.
This makes me believe that the solution women want is for guys to supress their feelings or for guys to not express their feelings. Again this is just my folk theory I am not claiming that this is the absolute truth.
But I think we can come up with better solutions to this dilemma. For one we need better men who can handle rejection appropriately. Before the red pillers come at me I think women should stop assuming all guys that develop crushes are manipulative. I understand guys who end friendships with you and that sucks but I think it's because they cannot handle uncomfortable emotions and I think they should handle these emotions and remain friends. At the same time women should take the chance and date their friends if they want to. Not saying women should give everyone a chance just that they should go after someone they have feelings for. If they break up so what they handle these uncomfortable emotions and awkwardness. Life is full of awkwardness and uncomfortable feelings but we need to navigate through them instead of avoiding them. These are just my thoughts and ideas, I am not claiming I hold the absolute truth so please don't get the wrong idea here
