I have always been told that complete honesty is the best policy, especially when it comes to women. Up until the moment I adopted this policy, I believed that to be true. How naive of me to think that I had it all figured out. Recently I’ve come to find that most women to not want real honesty. Most women want “convenient honesty.”
The term convenient honesty is somewhat self-explanatory, but for those of you who don’t know what I mean, allow me to explain. Most women want sparkly, story book, romantic comedy honesty. The media, movies, and sitcoms have some how fooled many females into thinking that honesty is always a good think when it really isn’t.
I’d like to think that I’m a pretty honest and blunt guy. I tell women the truth and nothing but. The females that I encounter (and maybe it’s JUST the ones I’ve encountered) do not seem to appreciate the very honesty that they claim they’re looking for. I tell every woman that I mingle with that I’m not looking for anything serious but I do want more than a fuck buddy. I am a grown man that has physical needs so I prefer a woman that is okay with having sex without having a serious relationship. A good majority of the women look at me with disgust and assume I think they are easy when that is not at all what I said.
Now please, ladies, don’t think I have a problem with being told no. The problem is not denial, it’s the reaction. You said you wanted honesty and that you always respect the man that gives you that. I immediately make know my intentions for us and you respond with disrespect. Doesn’t that make YOU the dishonest one?
It’s not like I deliver the truth in a mean way. I do, however, deliver it in a way that is unable to be misinterpreted. The last thing I want to do is hurt a good woman because I left her in the dark by only telling her the convenient truth. The way I see it, there’s only one form of genuine honesty and that’s 100% honesty. Any thing else is a lie.
So ladies I have to ask….
Do you really want to truth?
