Not to mention all her questions meant to be statements; taking them as questions and attempting to answer them is actually dragging your feet for not doing what you are clearly being hinted at. You'd better get acting on it.

A yes/no question that would be impossible to answer with a yes/no would be a complex question or that includes conditions that are not true.

"Did you know that you were being watched while you were breaking into the blue car?"

If you weren't breaking into a car, or it was a green car rather than a blue car, how do you answer that question?
"Are you still abusing your financial responsibilities?"

"No."

"So you've stopped?"

Oh, you mean the ones like, "Don't you think it's time to take the trash out?" or "Couldn't you watch TV some other time?" or "Can't you ever pick up after yourself?"

You can always say "yes" then drag your feet to act on the implications. (The passive agressive approach.) But if you don't care about her feelings, or you think she can "take it" or should learn how to, then just say the truth: "I really like you as a friend but I am in a relationship right now."

Yes these are accurate examples.

No, it didn't start after my scary test. I remember it was his emotion from the first day. Go to his first thread and you can see what I said! :wink:

yes or no is never the right answer because if you say yes, you are just saying it to be nice, if you say no, then you are a jerk.
:rofl: That reminds me of a story. Once a woman who just get married, asks his husband "Would you marry again if I'd die before you?"
The man tries to side step her question by saying he can't stay alive after her, he'll kill himself, the life would be intolerable and that kind of things!
The woman insist on having an answer, he says "NO! Never"
She start :cry: ing and says "do you want to say you're having too terrible life with me and hate all women after our marriage that you don't want to make your mistake again?"
The man:"No, I'm having a great time.so yes, I'll marry again for sure perhaps more than 1 time"
The woman: "How cheeky and unfaithful! I'm still alive and you're talking about remarriage and other women? :grumpy: :cry: "
The man finally get angry and kills his wife accidently!

"Have you stopped beating your gf?"

Answering "no" says that you do beat her, and answering "yes" implies that you used to.

This only works if 'yes' and 'no' are the only responses allowed.

Lemmesee, you're in a relationship but at least one other female is advancing on you... Hm, you must be going through some really tough times. So what's so bad with your life aside from that? Is it so bad you can't tell us?

you can also do, "Do you beat your spouse for pleasure?" yes says you do enjoy it, no says you do it, but she deserves it or something.

Better to assume that she will find out and be ready for her reaction. (Hope for the best, be ready for the worst.) Do you think the liking is reciprocal with the girl you like? Does she know you exist? Would she be upset if she found out, or would she say "gurkawho? Kissed who? Do I care? No?"

And why did you call your schoolmate "psycho"? It appears like she really likes you, and if she was a psycho what would that tell about you?

So that's what makes you think you're in some tough times? Gimme a break.

If that's not it, what is it then? Too much HW, too little time? Were you joking when you posted you were in for some tough times?

In that case, you are right to be concerned about upsetting her, IMHO. Because you have expectations from each other.
 
what happened today was in my mind the whole day so i just posted it.
i didnt want to post "no i m not saying it to u"
and i still wanted to respond to your sympathy.
so i felt that it is worth mentoning.
the tough times are related to my friends back home.

Sorry to hear; I hope that you and they will find the strength to pull through with relative ease and/or unharm.
