The reason I wish to learn about this is because I heard many women talk about how they cannot just blow off this guy who is bothering them because they do not want to make him lose face. Or how they cannot act a certain way to a person who is frequently an asshole to them because they do not want to make them lose face etc.... The losers of face were always guys in every instance I have encountered, so I am beginning to think that men made this shit up in China, so that they can stroke their egos. Not a bad idea haha, but it does get rather annoying from time to time.
Please help me understand what this face thing is really all about.
