    Bottom line: women are the choosers, in Stage #1 of the mating sequence, and they often put more thought and effort into shopping for shoes than they do into accurately parsing one man from another in a social setting ...
    I get what you're saying. Because women are more than likely to be asked out by men, women are in the position to choose.

    And apparently, flirting begins with the woman "making eyes"... but this concept is foreign to me.

    Your example is not only incorrect it is horribly offensive.
    Again, that's not what I meant to say: I ABSOLUTELY AGREE that great care should be put into evaluating potential partners, far more than goes into shopping --- my point is that we are taught (primarily in high school, and in other contexts thereafter) to evaluate potential mates by relatively meaningless and inaccurate criteria.

    I do apologize for my lack of clarity, but good God ... this isn't the place for me.

    I'm clearly not well-suited for this style of dialog. Again, I'll withdraw, with apologies.

    Please stay!

    I am enjoying your comments.

    Perhaps, since ArchAngel plays in this prominent rock band he is exposed to a specific type of sampling of women/girls who are, for lack of a better term, "star fuckers".

    If someone pursues you simply because of your looks or the fact that you play guitar in such and such band, well then, that is both lame and incredibly shallow.

    I would say more women are prone to being less shallow and more thoughtful in their mating choices.

    It's some amusing to watch people lose their composure. But I don't like to see it when I like that person.

    I'm in mind of the thread you started where you asked why people don't understand you. And I asked if you could see yourself as others see you. @CC.

    Worth thinking about.

    There's disagreement and there's exposing our ickies for everybody to have to slog through.

    If you like to wallow, aj - go for it.

    I beg to slightly differ. A lot of women are shallow in their mating choices, but so are men.

    But who are we to judge them?
