STAY AWAY from Amber, Dilbert.
Not only is she insensitive, she's also a braindead nut. What western person would ever come up with "the TWO musketeers?" Any child knows that first there were three and with d'Artagnan they became four.
Why can't women simply say "no" if they mean "no" and instead say "sure" and then set you up so you come out a big loser? What could they possibly gain in the long term with this tactic? Other than making enemies out of potential "friendlies."
No, not saying "friends" because most men can never become "friends" with women. If "friends" included actual penetration then I guess most men could become "friends" with women.
Damn this brings back one painful memory.
It was at university. This one girl that I thought was special (not beautiful), I asked on a date to the cinema. On our way outside of the lecture hall, she asked three (3) of her friends to come along!
When one of them hesitated, she insisted he come along because it would be FUN.
But I gave her a little payback later that summer. We both signed up for a voluntary project for the freshmen.
This one's spot on. A woman at work had been giving me every indication she was interested in me - more than just normally being friendly. I asked her out for a drink; she agreed and then suggested she bring another woman along. I'm bad at reading body language but she left no doubt she was interested in me but something must have changed her mind - strange creatures women - from a male viewpoint, that is! ;)
