    A lot of men, unfortunately, could give a shit because they dont see themselves as ever being subject to the unwanted attentions of a predator.

    What about <insert guy not using the OP's method>!!! ???

    No one is talking about or to you.
    Well, yeah. I agree.

    I think this is where the average woman and average man have just vastly different everyday experiences. I have guy friends who really are confused as to "women's signals" and just do not know how to talk to women for various reasons: Fear of rejection, anxiety, inexperience.

    They look for meta clues as to what women may want. Form some mental checklist they must adhere to or not do and then universally apply those as a "one size fits all" to women, which...argh! If something works once, they keep it. If something doesn't they immediately discard it, instead of finesse some things...anyway...if you can't tell I get frustrated listening to some of their stories.

    If you're someone who wants to ask those questions, "What about if I do this? Is this ok?" in a thread like this here is an answer that isn't as blunt as CeeCee's method. (I love an E8!).

    This thread shows what NOT to do on a universal scale, and that's it.

    I've been catcalled a few times from people in cars. I do find it irritating. (And I'm surprised no other male has reported this.) The really irritating and stupid thing about cat-calling is that it's always a one-way interaction. How the hell do you respond to someone driving past you in a car?

    Women who do this are just as foul. It’s not about flattery...it’s about intimidation.

    I didn't find it flattering. I wondered if they were being sarcastic or not. At best it was annoying.

    They probably did find you attractive idk. But catcalls are not meant to express that. They are meant to get a rise out of the person. Make them feel powerless in some way.
