Of course. Nobody said that was not a perfectly valid way. So take your strawman and put it back in the cornfield.I disagree, I think you can discover things you love by trying them.
It's simply not the ONLY way.
That is not what you're asking. You can introduce the subject by TALKING. Saying things like "Have you ever tried XXXX? Would you like to?"I also think it's concerning and inappropriate for you to make baseless, libelous accusations of me, when all I am doing is asking for suggestions on how to introduce a topic to someone.
I don't advertise. Never have. I also don't go around trying to push people to try things. If someone expresses any interest, I will talk to them and invite them to come try a class. If they don't show any interest, I don't try to convince them.I hope you never advertised anything, or promoted anything, or ever suggested anything to anyone at any point in your life, because by your logic that would be manipulative.
It's not an assumption. I read the thread before I posted (because that's how this should work...).It's even more concerning for you to assume what has or hasn't been said between us, or what I plan on saying. Who are you to assume that I wouldn't ask if her she's interested first?
When Monkey Turned Wolf asked if you had asked this person if they had any interest, your reply was:
Here's another quote, from another of your posts:Well, certainly I will be having that conversation
And here:I don't know that she isn't interested in martial arts, that's why I am making the suggestion in the first place.
So clearly, you have not. Because you SAID you had not. Repeatedly.I'll find out after I suggest it, won't I?
You do not need any help asking her if she's interested. You just ask. What you've described in this thread is a desire to get her to give you the answer you have already decided is right.
