Obviously both genders can’t take hints and both genders get offended that the other gender doesn’t take their hints. But hey, if we all knew how to take hints, everyone would be dating. And if everyone was dating, there wouldn’t be those common sense loners that knock reason into hollow heads in case of a crisis (it has been proven that you think better without your spouse, fiancée or significant other on your mind). And if that happened, society would be doomed to blissful ignorance—except for taking hints. That’s what would happen, so if the person you like doesn’t take a hint, give another one! Or just say it out loud. Doesn’t matter. As long as common sense prevails.
