Guys can be afraid of rejection too...right?

I know a lot of women don't ask guys out because they're afraid of rejection, but can't guys be scared of rejection too? I get tired of people saying..."He's just not that into you". Why do people say that? Maybe he's just afraid you'll say no or maybe he's just insecure?

What are your thoughts on this?

  • Well, if a guy says that he'll call but doesn't - he's just not that into you.

  • Fear of rejection is one of the main causes of people's failure to act. It's easy to blame the other person...too easy.

  • Well sure! If anything, men are probably more afraid of rejection than women.
