It's not that guys miss the hint (usually) but rather that the consequence of misinterpreting a hint can range anywhere from mild embarrassment to sexual harassment claims.
@Augustweather, Yeah, that definitely plays into some men's fear of interacting or being intimate with women.
@Augustweather, this…..this guy gets it. Welcome to 2022 where a touch on the shoulder could land you in court.
@Somervillage, smh guys
If you struggle so hard to read what’s okay, maybe just learn to ask consent?
Oh man this guy and his gf prank each other like this. He explained it on Reddit. They didn’t know they were being filmed and he said he wouldn’t of pulled the joke if he knew the camera was on them
@X088, thanks, glad someone is spreading the truth
As someone who's dated and flirted with men, this is true. A lot of it goes over their heads. But I think it's because the average person underestimates their attractiveness and never expects someone to flirt with them. So when it does happen, you don't know it.
@LyricTerror, It's the "crippling" in "crippling insecurity." I am medically incapable of picking up on signals.
@LyricTerror, There's a number of factors that play into it. Some really don't get it. Others do, but like you said, they underestimate their looks and say "nah she's just messing with me for a funny story with her friends". So it's also a trust thing. And others are afraid of getting a sexual harrassment complaint, like they mentioned in some comments above. I'm not saying all women, but there are some cruel women out there. Just like there are some horrible men, too.
@LyricTerror, I'm just convinced I am the person everyone thinks should have a girlfriend but doesn't want to date. Because I am told that all the time.
And then I hear things like "I wish guys would stop trying to making moves on me" casually at a party so I always just try to be friends with everyone instead and then no one keeps talking to me after my semester ends, I just assume I come off as a bothersome person just trying to make moves on them.
In conclusion I just think I am doomed to not ever find a girl who wants to date me let alone be friends with me longer than they have to. I don't think I am bothersome, but thats the only conclusion I can think of everytime.
One time after singing karaoke at a bar I went to pay my tab so I could leave. Some cute girl next to me complimented my singing. I was halfway home before I figured it out…
She definitely wanted him to tongue punch her tonsils
@ImNotRacistBut, best I can do is tongue punch her fart box
How difficult is it to just say "can I kiss you?". Not rocket science lol
Yea, if we accidentally misread signs we could land in jail and lose our careers because we kissed or touched without consent, and if she regrets it later, it's even worse
Also these two are/were actually a couple. The fluttering eye thing until the other looks away was an inside joke between them.
This was during NNN
Him: “Something doesn’t smell right.”
