Urban Dictionary: negging
^a quote from the above link. (in case you guys think this is my opinion or something)Low-grade insults meant to undermine the self-confidence of a woman so she might be more vulnerable to your advances. This is something no decent guy would do. They say that the assholes get the girls, but I can spot negging a mile away and I reject these fuckers straight off.
I've actually seen guides on 'How to neg a beautiful woman so you stand a chance'.
So women, have men used this technique on you? Do you recognize it immediately? Have you ever fallen for it?
And men, do you use this method? has it been successful?
It's been tried on me but because I know what negging is, it doesn't work. This way of flirting gives me the impression the person sees me as higher than them and in order to get my attention, they need to throw negative remarks at me.
Playing on women's insecurity is a pretty low way to go about things. IMO, it says a lot about the character of a person.
