    I generally err on the direct side. The reason for this is that indirect can come off as passive aggressive and there isn't much I dislike more than that. However, I made an effort to learn how to be direct while being diplomatic (tactful) and I'm better at it. I'm not great, I never will be, I leave that to my ENFJ but at least most people don't want to punch me in the mouth/start crying anymore. In relationships, you have to be at least a little indirect. This is all part of the scenery and it adds layers of flavor/buildup/intrigue that seems to be enjoyed. In the end, not every situation can be handled delicately or tactfully and you have to be direct, you just need to learn how to know when those times are.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

If I can sense they're interested in me (women are very good poker players when it comes to the seduction game) THEN I might go for the kill. It might be a kiss if I see the fleeting "kiss-me-now" eyes.
    Hopefully you will encounter plenty of women willing to play these games. Fortunately for me, there are also men who don't expect women to play them. I'd rather we spend our energy on other things.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    If I'm interested in a boy, I don't mind going slow or even if we just end up friends either way, doesn't matter to me, but I am very direct. I hate the whole bullshit that comes with indirectness. And if people are sensitive and can't handle directness, that's their fault for being sensitive and clearly that's a deal breaker for me. Also not respecting my requests is another one

People can't read your mind, just say what you need to, and move on, if they don't like it, that's their problem. I'm sorry it just seems like a coward thing to do. maybe there are times when simply dropping hints is a good idea. I can't think of any.
    i love dropping hints. usually because i have nothing to say to anyone direct. just making conversation...half the hints i drop, i drop so i can take the hint. what makes you think people are dropping hints for you? some of us drop hints for ourselves...our future selves. haha
