THE LOVE SHERPA: Never Tell Women YES or NO; Tell Them MAYBE.
A male friend of mine in his 30s has been on a roll, dating gorgeous 20ish women, I recently asked him how his young girlfriend was, and he replied, "Which one?".

Immediately I knew I could learn something so when we sat down, I braced myself for a series of life altering lessons on women and how he get dates.

Instead, what I learned from my savvy friend -- now my idol -- was a single word that soon may change the landscape of my dating, or lack of dates. Maybe.

That's the word, Maybe. He explained that by answering women's questions -- queries such as "Maybe", he has drastically improved the number and quality of his dates.

Criticizing me as "too accomodating" for telling women "yes" or "no", he confidently looked at me and with great conviction said, "Responding with a 'yes' is often worse than telling them 'no'. The correct answer to women's questions is always 'maybe'.

The simple"maybe" response tells the woman several important things. First, it's not a "no". Thus, leaving her with hope, like Jim Carrey's line in "Dumb and Dumber", "So, you're telling me I have a chance".

He explained that women like suspense and that "maybe" leaves them with uncertainty, thus something to look forward to and talk to their friends about.

Second, it demonstrates that you are a busy man with a demanding schedule. Women want someone who is busy and not waiting on the couch for a phone call.

Finally my friend uses "maybe" just in case a better offer comes up in the meantime. This was he will always be spending the evening with his "top choice".

Not being one for games, this new knowledge made me sick to my stomach. Could it be that easy? Does it really work? Will I change my answers to questions asked by women?
