Negging

So, being in the video blog business (whatever that means) tends to lead to a bunch of unsolicited mail. Which I'm fine with. I love reading all the emails and post I get. Buuuuuttttt....
I am not down with 'negging'. I can see it coming from a mile away and I swear, it makes me want to hunt you down and cut a bitch if you do it.

This usually happens in one of two ways (or both):
'you are/have gotten fat. I still like you though'
'your videos used to be better, but I'll still watch'.

Let me say to anyone who ever thinks that there is any point in saying either of the above to me..

fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucck youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.

Negging? Had to look it up.

Negging means making a mildly negative comment to someone.
The term is popular among certain people who teach men how to flirt with women. Many men have trouble meeting women because they misunderstand some of the basics of flirting.

A crucial aspect of successful flirting is creating ambiguity. Neither party communicates precise feelings or romantic intentions, and the other party is left guessing. In particular, good flirting includes a mixture of positive and negative comments. One does not have to be insulting, but uniformly positive flattery is boring and unproductive.

There are many nice guys who were reared to believe that flirting is rude for various reasons, and they become frustrated by their communications with women who expect better flirting skills. Negging is a technique for those men to improve their flirting without being rude. Learn more.

My heart skips a beat when I see a new blog post, let alone five. But I'll still read your blog.

WTF? You are SO sensitive. I wouldn't blame you if we don't hear from you for a while. Please don't let whatever-it-was get you down. Some of us do like hearing what you have to say. We may not always agree with you. But, hey, don't let that stop you from expressing yourself.

Bryony,

There is a long-running saying that is very useful-"it's not what you're called-it's what you Answer to."

Sorry tohear that you are stressed out. Liked your last video and feel free to make more when you feel like it.
