Men found to be "oblivious" to subtle flirting done by women

Recommended Posts

Why the female flirt is wasting her time

 

 

 

Some girls merely flutter their eyelashes.

 

Others snuggle up close and play footsie, while the really forward type might venture a touch on the thigh.

 

But whatever the method of flirting it just doesn't work with most men, claim researchers.

 

The male brain, it seems, is hopeless at picking up "come-on" signals, according to a report to be published next month. This leaves men impervious to the seduction techniques of the opposite sex.

 

A study by scientists at Indiana University tested 280 undergraduates of both genders on their ability to spot social signals.

 

They were shown photographs of women and asked to categorise them as friendly, sexually interested, sad or rejecting.

 

The male students were far less accurate than the females at interpreting the body language, and were particularly baffled by the difference between flirty and friendly gestures.

 

When shown images of women making advances, men tended to misread the sexual cues as friendliness. At the same time they mistook photos of women merely being friendly for sexual interest.

 

 

 

The researchers also found that women overestimate men's ability to pick up on sexual signals.

 

They argue that many females wrongly believe that the men are well aware of their attempts to woo, but are just not interested in responding.

 

"Failure to pursue could be an indicator of misperception but could easily be explained by noninterestthe scientists write in the journal Psychological Science.

 

 

 

In contrast, women are very aware that males get the wrong end of the stick when they are simply being friendly.

 

This is because, the researchers argue, men who misconstrue a friendly gesture as a come-on are more likely to follow through with inappropriate behaviour.

 

Such embarrassing encounters will lodge more keenly in a woman's memory, and she will also be more likely to discuss it with her friends.

 

Lead researcher Dr Coreen Farris reassures women, however, that all is not lost when it comes to flirting. She said: "These are average differences. Some men are very skilled in reading clues."

 

Best- selling author Kathy Lette said the research proved that women are far more fluent in body language.

 

"It is really confusing for women," she said.

 

"The average bloke either doesn't realise that we fancy him until we are giving birth to his children in the labour ward; or he presumes all women fancy him all the time.

 

"God was playing some kind of prank when he developed two sexes."

One of the comments cracked me up as being all too true...

 

"Yep..... the thing is.... women communicate with other women like this all the time so they naturally think that men can pick up on these subtle signals just as easily..... but we can't. If I'm upset with one of my male friends I tell his so, or I hit him. What I don't do is ignore his new shoes or buy him a shirt in a color I know he does not like.... men are more direct and we wish women understood this when they interact with us."

This is my downfall.

 

I'm sure many a pussy-play was lost by me due to my cluelessness.

They need to mention that bitches flirt with you and try to get a response when they aren't even interested just because they want to feel like everyone would fuck them.

I can't take a hint either. Wish we just handled it like dogs do. Sniff each other's asses and hop on.

Yea Gucci is pretty spot on as well.

 

I almost feel like all girls know how to do is flirt.

 

Maybe I'm just an attractive guy, or maybe, as Gucci is insinuating, females just wanna feel attractive.

We cant tell because all women are cock teasing sluts. You think ones flirting, you respond back like wise and then they pull away all like "WTF?". Then you look like a dumb ass. So we cant really tell between flirting or gay little friendly gestures.

I could have gotten about half of my female friends in the sack if I had just been paying attention, according to half of my female friends. Apparently they were throwing me signals and I wasn't even paying attention.

 

What can I say? I'm not a scumbag...I only hook up with people I like (for the most part). That's not to say I wasn't attracted to them or into them, but it's something else...it's hard to explain.

 

All I can say is that I know when it's going to happen with a girl, and so far I've been right 100% of the time.

 

I'm pretty sure most of you know what I'm talking about.

Yeah I'm fucking oblivious to all of these "natural" hints. Girls just need to be like "Let's fuck". Fuck the whole bashing of the eyeLASHES I've had too many beers and I'm not even looking at your face.

actually, i believe the opposite of this is true...

 

most men think women are flirting, even if the woman is not flirting and just being nice.

I all ways used to think girls would be down, then I'd find out they weren't after I'd break up with the last girl and start going after the ones I thought were on the D.
