    Your description of finesse is interesting. It is like a guy should never kosea a chic even if it is not on purpose. What was wrong with asking you about pimples? How was teh guy to know it is related to hormonal and biological issues that girls sometimes have? Not every guy knows this, and in my opinion the question was innocent, You is the one who took it to mean something else and your conclusion was lack of finesse on the guy, right?

    Interesting…No man or woman is perfect.There are women who are bila finesse too, I’m eager to read a male version oft his article. No.1 Bila finesse in men is lack of integrity i.e. not matching words and actions.A woman who tolerates a man who cannot deliver what he promises likebeing punctual for a date he sets is set for trouble right from the start and is herself bila finesse for good men who humanly may have a few faux pas…
