3 Reasons Why Girls Say “No” To Sex

The bra is off, you’re making out and then, BOOM, your door slams shut; your hot date rushes out, making excuses and fumbling as she does up her shirt. “Wait -” you think, “That wasn’t supposed to happen!” What drove your dream girl to make a mad dash towards freedom? To eliminate all the mind-boggling guesswork, I’ve put together the top three reasons why she left you high, dry and naked. Now, put some clothes on!

1) She’s Virtually Married, Timing Is Everything

If the girl has: a boyfriend, a husband, someone she’s seeing or someone “back home” then this is the problem. First things first, naughty you for pursuing a girl who is “spoken for.” However, it’s understandable why you did it. People (not just girls) often fall into the trap of committing themselves to relationships they’re not that interested in for the sake of security. Unfortunately, lots of boyfriends and girlfriends are nothing more than an accessory.

So when someone they actually fancy in a raw, animalistic kind of way pops up, they’re forced to reconsider their options, weighing up long-term security versus a night of passion. They’re going to want to feel red-hot attraction; probably after they’ve squabbled with their other half over some minor domestic detail. This is what will create the moment where they feel ‘O.K.” to cheat.

Timing is very important, even more so when they may have been tempted numerous times before. Any English Majors out there will appreciate the reference here to Madame Bovary: bored housewife, almost had an affair with a guy she really liked, but held back, then she put out to the very next smooth talker who she met.

Moral of the story: Timing is why people have affairs, so be prepared to persist. Something as simple as pinging her with a text every week or so will help to keep you on her radar. If she pings you back out of the blue you can almost guarantee it’s because the other guy screwed up, and she’s giving you a shot. Keep her in your peripherals, and wait until the moment is right.

2) She Really Cares / Wants You To Respect Her

A girl may also “hold out” because she’s really into you and wants you to feel the same way about her. By not sleeping with you, she hopes that you will invest time and effort into pursuing her. They say that people care about what they invest in, so by chasing her you’ll start to care about the outcome. Sometimes guys will become so focused on the outcome that they’ll compromise what they want – staying single – to get the result – sex; which means suddenly two people are in a relationship.

As for those pesky feelings, this is a tricky situation to manage. Your best bet is to lead a righteous life and manage the girl’s expectations. If you don’t want a relationship then tell her that; just make sure your behavior doesn’t conflict with what you say. So no ringing her in the dead of night for her to come and see you, or saying things “in the moment” that you didn’t precisely mean.

You can “tell her what she wants to hear” if you like and deceive her into sleeping with you, but this isn’t a good way to behave. She gets hurt, you’re an idiot and you lose your integrity – which is way more important than a one night stand. Instead, maintain your non-committal attitude, be more aloof, and when she feels she is losing the fight she’ll probably give in to you to try and maintain your interest. This doesn’t mean you’ve acted like a saint, but it does mean that the girl made the decision to sleep with you in full knowledge of how you feel.

3)  She Isn’t A Slut…Honest!

The girl who is horny (but attempting to be “moral”) is your best bet for a hook-up. Due to some stupid social standards, girls may censor themselves from hooking up with you as they’re worried that people will think they’re a slut. Thanks to nagging mothers, the media and a lot of other conservative grumblings, girls may feel like they can’t freely have sex, without risking being judged.

By vocalizing her concerns you can probably do a lot to ease her mind. Assure her that you “don’t usually do things like that” (unless that is a total lie, in which case just do your best to conceal the rotating door to your bedroom) and tell her that you’ll keep her confidentiality. Not kissing and telling is not only the classy thing to do, but also the reason why you may get high quality girls having secret love affairs with you.

And if none of these tactics to turn a “no” into a “yes” work; don’t despair. A “no,” more often than not, means “not yet”; and persistence so often beats resistance.

COED Writer
I'm a true romantic, Casanova-has-nothing-on-me lover, sexual explorer and dating adventurer. I'm bursting with joie de vivre, live my life at 100 mph and I'm addicted to love, lust and dating. I use my personal experiences and education in psychoanalysis and liteature to guide other people to achieve what they want romantically. I work as a seduction and dating coach/ writer. I specialise in teaching conversation skills, sexual escalation, text game, and how to unleash your inner desires. I also push myself to the limits of dating, sex and romance in the quest to truly understand love & desire... then write about it. I love men, women, adventures and helping others.I also really like peanut butter. Before I began to analyse fin amour I've been everything from a model, to a UCL scholar, to an antique dealer. I grew up a poor, chubby, dateless and direly unpopular girl in rural England. That experience gave me a cast iron sense of self, but also the empathy to see both sides of the social spectrum. Since then I've given talks, seminars and private instructions on seduction on both sides of the Atlantic. A former trainer for Wayne ‘Juggler’ Elise at Charisma Arts, I now working with the mighty forces of Daygame, PUA Training and namely for myself to offer you a unique female perspective into any social or dating problems you may face. I have a gift for analyzing social situations and decrypting what the people in your life could be trying to be communicating to you. I can speak to you on a level as a great friend, whilst also understanding what attractive and intelligent women want: from both the perspective of a seducer and the seduced. I'm an intelligent thinker, a bit radical, a whirlwind of romance, and on a mission to change how we understand love and relationships forever.... so move over Plato (!) Hayley Quinn is here.
