- Person 1 - share dilemma
for instance... "I want to date you but realize that I want my freedom too - what do you suggest I do with that?"
- Person 2 - Acknowledge, listen, respect, understand
For instance... "I totally understand that you want your freedom - I totally respect that - I am not here to limit you, on the contrary, I admire the fact that you are so direct and I am totally ok with what you say."
Instead of... "Whaou! I can't believe this! You could have told me that ealier instead of wasting my time! Good bye and don't contact me again!"
