  1. Oh my goodness! Where has this pearl of wisdom been all my life? I usually respond either yes to the commitment not the connection or come across cold and distant for a no. Thank you! I need this!

  2. Cheri,
    Thanks very much for this. This is the best way I’ve heard of doing this. I may not always be able to make a commitment, but I can keep the connection.

  3. Cheri,
    This is SO timely for me! Denise Hughes actually pointed me to this post because I am at this very crossroads. I *know* I want to say yes to the connection, but I need more time to evaluate if I can wisely say yes to the commitment. Reading your words is the reminder I needed that my yeses are not mutually demanding or exclusive of one another. Thanks this post and Denise’s wise counsel, I am gathering more information about the commitment; but whether I give my yes or no to that, I’m eager to affirm my desire to connect.

  4. Thank you so much for this!! It’s one of the best pieces I’ve ever read on saying yes or no!

  5. Aw, man, I looooove connecting with people…and often commit to things I shouldn’t because of it. This is sooooo helpful!!!
