harlock: If girl is not attracted to guy, advances are creepy, gross and oh my god why would anyone do that, I can't believe anyone would try that.

If girl is attracted to guy, it's totally cool and here's my number!


If a girl is attracted to me, sometimes she'll let me put my penis into her. If she's not attracted to me and I try that, it's all like "I'm calling the cops" and "*psssst* pepper spray to the motherfarking face". Women are mysterious indeed.

A brief poll amongst Jezebel staffers found that most of us have used social media to flirt.

Jezebel staffers approve of flirting?

You're mixing up aggregation and generalization.  Go back to your UML diagrams.

DO NOT WANT Poster Girl: Generally, socially minded women talk about anything and everything. Writing about it is just an extension of that. It's how women bond, no joke. They tell each other stories that may seem inane or silly on objective observation but its not the content that's the critical part...it's the empathy and relation of the story to the women doing the exchange. In print, women who engage each other that way read such things and understand that this is an amusing and annoying "shared experience". People who don't 'get' this mode of communication...understandably...think its trivial.

Secret, straight guys. Don't want to be in friend mode? Don't engage women in empathic banter, because that level of friend doesn't often cross over into romance. That's why the asshole guys end up with girls. Women love trying to crack into a guy to get him to "relate" to her on that level and if you make it easy then you're no conquest. Even if you're the most sensitive man in the world, if you want a social butterfly as a GF, act as if you don't understand her. She'll only want that in flashes later.


Women be crazy.

Smackledorfer: imgod2u: Smackledorfer: No, but neither would he make a federal case out of it.

He would probably do some fun light flirting and enjoy the attention despite not having interest.

He definitely wouldn't run to the world as though being hit on is the same as a continued pattern of harrassment.

While I agree with the sentiment, the 300lb goddess is more likely to give up and not be as aggressive as the balding dude who needs Rush viagra. More importantly, most guys should able to outrun/fight her off if she goes too far.

It doesn't apply to every case but women do have more to fear on average.

True, but look at tfa; a woman biatching about a single email. One email she can delete and even block. How terrible for her.

I am not defending actual harrassment here.

NetOwl: Its seems that many (most?) men are unaware of how creepy they are when they hit on women at inappropriate times.

At a bar after work?  Go ahead!

Almost anywhere else?  Your advances are unwelcome, and you ought to know that already.

Most women get hit on all the time, and it's extremely annoying.  If you don't see how that would be annoying, then you're indulging in your male privilege.  Not that there's anything wrong with having that privilege, of course.  Just be aware of it, and stop pretending that your experience is the same as women's experiences.  Getting hit on when you're trying to do some mundane task is not fun.


You sound like hitting on you at any time would be a mistake, and "getting lucky" would not, in fact, be lucky.

ng2810: So if a guy was being hit on by a grotesque 300 lb. drunk-off-her-ass 50 year old woman full of wrinkles and in a skin-tight dress, he would be all over that?
