The word "no" is among the first a baby learns. It surprises me, therefore, that so many men I meet do not understand its meaning.

No, I do not want to have cybersex with you.

No, I do not want you to teach me why I need you.

No, I do not want to hear your theories on why I don't want you.

No, I do not want to have a drink.

No, I am not interested in playing with any part of your anatomy that one does not see when you are clothed.

No, I am not too keen on calling you for a "good time."

No, I am not "in the mood."

No, I am not looking for a boyfriend, and no, you cannot change my mind with your picture.

No, I really am not a bitch just because I am responding to your ridiculous comments with a less-than-civil attitude.

No, I am not old enough to be your mother, nor too young to appreciate your sexiness.

No, your picture does not turn me on.

No, I do not like to be called "baby."

No, your profile does not impress me.

No, I don't really wanna "trade pics."

No, I will not tell you my bra size.

No, you are not the exception.

No, you are not the first of your kind I have ever seen, nor are you the last, I imagine.

No, I most certainly am not interested in having you over for wine and oral sex.

No, your attempts at seducing me are not working.

No, you cannot kiss me.

No, the object of life is not to get laid.

No, I am not a sex toy.

No, I do not respond well to being called "sexy."

No, I don't particularly want to hear about the attributes of your sexual organs.

No, I am not a lesbian.

No, I am not into barnyard animals.

No, I am not actually a man.

No, your penis really isn't that great.

No, in fact I am not impressed.

YES, I am willing to chat with someone who has an interest in my mind, I love new friends, I love people who don't judge me, I want to get to know each other without hopes of getting it on, YES YES YES. But I have been propositioned by far too many jerks for you to mistake me for an easy lay, and I will not take crap from ANYONE. I am sick and tired of being told what I want and need. I know better than you do and there is nothing you can say that will change my mind on that, especially if you just met me. No, I do not "need your seed," and YES, I want you to leave me the hell alone.

Comments from others:

Mikey: It is to my understanding that most men don't understand nothing, so this comes as no shocker.

Dieter: I don't fully disagree with Mikey's comment, but I would add that this painfully ignorant attitude extends to women as well. People in general are bad at accepting answers they don't like and not getting things they want. While your experience, Miss Ivy, is unlikely to include many such experiences with females, I can assure you the same situations do arise.

Marintha: .... I don't think I've ever even HEARD of a guy getting irritated to death by an actual girl on the internet. A man pretending to be a woman, yes. An actual woman? I'll admit a lot of women are dumb dumb dumb dumb. x.x Just walk into a strip club and you'll see what I mean. But they're not usually irritatingly persistant!

(Not all men are either, just some dumb dumbs.)

Stephen: I thought 'no' meant 'work on the neck and the nipples and check back in ten minutes'.
