Now, I'm all for trying new things. Like people keep telling me about some Ethiopian restaurant in Pittsburgh (I think it's Ethiopian, anyway), and I'm all for going there. Even if it turns out I don't like it, I still want to try it. I'm also open for trying all sorts of new experiences in all sorts of areas. I know I tend to stick to familiar things I like, but I also like finding new things to enjoy. The one time I tried waterskiing (when I was 11), I fell flat on my face, stupidly held onto the rope, and promptly decided I didn't want to try that again, but I'm glad I did.
But when I say I'm not interested in trying something, I mean I'm not interested in trying something. If you're absolutely in love with whatever it is, that's fine, but don't push me to try it if I say no. Some people love playing ice hockey, driving Hummers, or bestiality, but there's no way you could convince me to try any of those. There are just some things I don't want to try.
No means no. No means drop the subject and don't push it.
On that note, anyone up for Ethiopian food?
