If you're looking to get laid, just don't get offended/belligerent if/when someone turns you down.  Just move on without any fuss.  Idk why some people are so prideful and feel the need to start slinging insults as if they've been personally affronted.

Yeah, this is what SevenPM assumes I'm doing and is putting words in my mouth. Saying that it's easier for women to get laid is not me whining because of how this thread started with my anecdote, it's me agreeing with The Arm.

Somehow, she can't grasp that and is strawmanning me.

I think some of this is also coming down from confusion. There were a lot of people posting a lot of different opinions and perspectives about this or that, and I think what you said just kind of got erroneously tied in with some of those other opinions.

In any case, I feel you're good people, and I'm sorry that the terror got reigned down on you. I know you're going through a tough time right now. I'd buy you a drink if I knew you in real life.

How do you mean? What's happening on your end?

I'm able to use Chrome just fine on my work computer. No problems. If you're having trouble accessing the internet using Chrome, could be you've got some bad cache or cookie files or something.

But clearly you don't understand that women rarely if ever show overt interest to men.  They never come up to us and say 'Oh let's go back to my place.' or 'Oh I like you.' We get little to nothing.

Actually they do this all the time, sorry you haven't had your share.

Yeah they do. I actually don't like it when they do, but plenty of women show overt interest.... Maybe not as often as men, but they totally do.

Is that flirting?

As discussed, sometimes it is hard to tell.

This! On both sides.  I agree completely. If a guy asks you and you aren't interested. Just say so. If you ask a girl and she isn't interested, just move on without acting like a child.

Woah, I knew this would blow up.  First off, no one said women aren't into casual relationships.  And I wasn't implying that men take this approach to women who clearly aren't interested. But clearly you don't understand that women rarely if ever show overt interest to men. They never come up to us and say 'Oh let's go back to my place.' or 'Oh I like you.' We get little to nothing. So when guys do things that come across as stupid to you, it's because we have no idea what she's thinking unless she tells us clearly. We might think she likes us because she smiles at us.  Once again, I'm not condoning the hail mary pass, I'm just saying I understand why as a man.

PS if this approach didn't work, tinder wouldn't exist.  No one is saying to come across as a pervert.

While I can understand where you're coming from here, I don't agree with this.

It's just that some people are better at reading than others. It comes back to social skills and reading social cues. Most women who are interested give some pretty clear signs, even when they're being "subtle." For guys who really can't seem to identify them, researching the internet is a good first step. You don't need to be overt to send out signals.

In short, a smile is not enough to make an assumption about casual sex. People smile when they're being nice. That's it.

But if you've been flirting with the woman for a while and she's been reciprocating (real flirting -- just talking to a woman about her day is not flirting, a lot of guys and gals could learn a thing or two about how to flirt), and she's giving you the bedroom eyes, making a respectful proposition wouldn't be out-of-line.

Also, a person's approach for sealing the deal could also make or break the vibe. A woman (or man) could totally be interested in the beginning but may lose that interest if you come off too strong or disrespectful.

I'm not disagreeing with you but flirting doesn't mean anything.  It doesn't mean she's interested. I've had women with boyfriends flirt with me, I've had single women flirt with me. Women who are interested in me, women who aren't. Some people just like the back and forth and don't plan on taking it further.

I guess my underlying point here is that just because you are upfront and interested in something casual, does not mean you are scuzzy, a loser, socially inept or any of the other labels that the girls in this thread are attaching to it.  Obviously there have been some bad experiences on Sevenpm's part that she's reacting so negatively.  But, just because I said I understand why guys might be straight and to the point does not mean that approach equates to being a creep.  I don't appreciate that label being thrown around nor do the other men in this thread.  Can't we just have a civil discussion about a tantalizing topic without resorting to insults?

I'm grateful those days are long over :)

Forward women were always a real turn off to me, as something about that aggressiveness was off putting.

They weren't "crazy", but they didn't follow the "normal" conventions, so I would always RUN from that type.

Some guys might like it, like some enjoy shooting fish in a barrel, but if you don't wish to be stocked later, it's best to avoid ;)

I should rephrase, I'm not talking about the kind that lock themselves in a room with you and then try to seduce you by force. I guess I mean we don't often have women take the initiative with things. It's up to us to make the moves.

This may be one of the most insultingly stupid things I've seen in a while. I can not understand how a room full of advertising people could sit down in 2017 and watch this and think "this is great. People are going to eat this shit up".

I gave my students writing essays to tell me about their best vacation and one girl wrote that her best vacation was when her mom took her to the movies and got her a popcorn and "coke."
