Because men always think women are hitting on them

bigstockphoto_cool_young_man_3662302




If a woman walks into a grocery store to buy an item – any item it doesn’t matter what it is – she must be very careful. If she stands within a metre radius of any man, he will think she is trying to get him into bed.




The situation is made worse if he is searching for the object she is searching for as well. If he stands in front of the milk, and a woman comes up and stands next to him, looking at her milk choices, he will assume she has engineered her need for milk in order to create an opportunity to sleep with him.




Men say they think about sex all the time, but their behaviour implies it is the woman who is thinking about it all the time. He thinks about it because he lives with an assumption that every woman wants to sleep with him. Very few women out class a man in his mind; He thinks he can go for whatever he wants.




This phenomenon is exacerbated if the woman is buying alcohol. When she stands in front of a wine rack, or a fridge containing mixed drinks, a man standing there first will assume, not that she wants to make a purchase irrespective of who is standing there, but that she is looking for sex and wants it with him.




This also goes for sitting in traffic, if she accidently makes eye contact with a man he will assume the woman is trying to have sex with him, if she is wearing nice clothes he will assume she did it specifically for him or if she takes an empty seat next to him on a crowded train. Also, every man thinks if a woman has large breasts that she did it deliberately to try to seduce him.




In romance novels, the hero never assumes the woman wants him automatically, unless he has a lesson in arrogance coming his way. Women are allowed to wake up, get dressed, go to work, buy milk and wine on the way home and the hero assumes she is just going about her day without thinking of him at all. Which is, of course, the truth.

  4. [...] women are foolishly easily flattered, they fail to see exactly why men hit on them so easily and so often. Men say – because it helps the scenario work better- that they hit on women because of sex. [...]

  5. [...] talked before about men not being able to flirt and thinking women are always hitting on them. These things combined come back to one basic premise – men think a woman is chasing them, when [...]
