Why dont men ever give a straight answer to a straight question ?
Men don't give straight answers because we are in most cases too prideful to say, "I don't know." Or it may be that they are dancing around the truth and not telling the whole story.
Strange, this question caught my attention as I have only ever seen this happen with women. It just goes to show it happens on both sides. I guess it just depends on the person rather than the sex as I can think of a lot of women like this but hardly any men.
To say all men is a strech but the reason could simply be respect. Some men only answer what they want. If they don't think your important or the topic is a waste of time they may dance around the question because the really don't care.
The second answer would be to protect themselves or to manipulate a situation.
Possibly because they've been burned too many times by women that ask a question they don't want a straight answer to?
The age old "Does this make my butt look big?" is a good example. Answer truthfully and the poor man is in deep trouble, so he dances around trying to answer without flat out lying.
Men also often have trouble understanding what the question truly is. Many men can only answer what is actually asked, even when they know the real question is something else entirely.
The world is full of questions. And sometimes there's more than one answer to each question asked.
And then you have to ask yourself, what is a '"straight" question anyway?
Did you know that questions make men hungry? It's true. It's been scientifically proven somewhere, and science is very rarely wrong.
Cake. Who doesn't love cake? Nothing too dry mind. maybe with a nice creamy filling. Hmmm....creamy...
Sorry, what was the question now?!...
if men do ,he may not get to laid with you. and you question is really of no importance to men. unless there real love or wanting to get to know a woman, it all about hitting it with as little money out of pocket as possible. and unless you down for that, you don't want his real answer. so in a way, men are saving your feeling.
From my experience, only 1 thing: ...
"Specificity on what the question really is actually all about"
When I'm straight to the point, a lot of women might some times not like the answer when it doesn't fit what they want to hear. So a straight answer often doesn't even work to make her understand what we mean, compared to what/how she understands.
For example! Your question here ... is a straight one, right?
Well no! It just looks like, sounds like it...
The same question asked & answered by another men ... will be pretty short & direct, no hurt feelings, all is clear.
With woman? Not the same deal at all. Why? Because you have a specific question but remain vague at the same time. This question here above, just expresses how bothered you are about not having an answer on a question you asked to "YouKnowWHO" and is therefore more a rhetorical value.
So ... What is the actual question you want to have answered?
( ..but ask the right (concerned) guy for that ... ;-) ..)
Not all men ....but that may be simply because men may answer what they want or sometimes use that as a defense mechanism.
Firstly it is important to understand that not all men are the same.
If a man says he loves you and he ignores your questions, then you need to sit him down and tell him to listen or you will need to seek alternatives. Talking it out is a good idea, unless he still isn’t interested.
If you ask too many questions, then may be you need to let him ask some. This comment is NOT directed towards you, but some girls, e.g my exes, really don’t know when to stop talking and giving the opposite sex a chance to put their input in. In this case a man will automatically continue to ignore you and lack interest because you won’t allow him to express his thoughts.
Also, with communication at time, one side will usually speak in a tone that consist of a dominant manner. In other words don’t try and correct or make what your saying sound better then what he is saying all the time. It will ruin the balance of your relationship. Try to keep it neutral.
Hope this helps

Why are men so mean to women?All the men I meet seem to have some sort of attitude problem. Are there anymore nice men out there or have the whole "too nice" theory killed any chance of ever finding a gentleman?
