Does no always mean no?

    Whether you're in a relationship or not, men and women seem to disagree on this topic. What is your take on it?

      It should! Date rape, or any rape and abuse is too prevalent.  We (BOTH MEN AND WOMEN) have to learn to be clear about our intentions. As women, we have to know that men are wired entirely different and to think we're being "nice or friendly" while they are getting aroused and taking these as green lights can lead to disaster.  Be clear up front and feel confident enough that if you say NO, and that "turns him off", then you've spared yourself an unhealthy relationship.  Likewise, if men don't want to end up behind bars, they need to be sure they have clear consent to move forward.  Your life, reputation, and character are worth it.
      ***Side note: Maybe if we dare to get to know each other before jumping in the sack this would not even be a question. I know...I live in a dream world. But it makes me feel good to say it.

      "NO" is a simple two letter word meaning the opposite of "YES". There can be no grey area about this word it is a direct expression of a negative response. "No" means "NO"  not maybe, not we'll see, not possibly, there is no if or when that can attach itself to "NO".

    No always means no....

    if no didn't mean no, then it would be called 'yes'

    Now that doesnt mean that someone cant change their mind and later on.. 15 minutes later, 2 hours later, one week later, 3 years later.. say 'yes'...

    but if it is a no, then it is a no

    (ps men are still allowed to beg in an adorable and semi-convincing fashion, of course)

      That's a pretty stupid answer. It must have come from some idiotic jock type who can't spell let alone understand that NO is NO.

        Guess again!  By the by, apparently sometimes humor escapes you.  Did think I had to draw out on a easel about tongue in cheek.

          It might be a good idea because from my point of view it is more like foot in mouth rather than tongue in cheek.

            There are none so blind as those that will not see.

    The thing that comes closest to the meaning of yes is yes. So if you mean yes, don't say no.

    No means 'Maybe'? Yes means 'Not really'? Never means 'no'?
