WOMEN HAVE A ONE TRACK MIND

I recently took a job where as a male I am in the minority. I have some serious questions now about why women are so strange, so please you ladies speak up and help stout out with his serious head scratching questions about why women are the way they are! I’ve come to think that women have a one track mind, that they think that everything a man does has something to do with sex or dating. These are just some of the curiosities I've witnessed.....

1) Why is it, that so many women I meet have to interrupt perfectly good conversations to bring up their "availability" issues the first time you meet them, to let you know whether they are "available" or not? Who cares, is every conversation with a woman about that? I swear many will bring it up the first time you meet them in a way that's
barely connected with the conversation, and then never bring it up again in subsequent conversations. I'll give you an example so you get my point. I'll be telling a perfectly good story about how my cat crapped in the litter box the other day, and some girl will interrupt with, "My boyfriend did that, he took a crap." The thought that goes through my head, at this off the topic intrusion is, "WOW...FASCINATING....CAN I FINISH MY G@# D@#$ STORY NOW?" Everyone knows I'm married, why does it have to come up at all? I'm obviously not available, who cares? Aren’t women unusual?

2) Why is that women can't accept compliments? Why can't I say that a woman has a pretty face and not have the girl think I'm hitting on her? I remember a girl came up to me and told me I had a nice butt. I said, "Thanks", made me feel good, and that was the end of it. I don't even remember seeing her again. Could I seriously give a similar
compliment to a girl w/o her freaking out that I'm hitting on her? Why can't women just take a compliment and let that be the end of it?

3) The other day I was in a bar, staring at the barstools, when I started to think and "zone" out for awhile. When I snapped out of it, I was staring at the same spot only now instead of a barstool it was a pair of breasts, and of course the owner of the breasts was staring right at me. It was a tiny bar, and the rest of the night you could cut the awkward tension with a knife. She obviously had to make a show of who she was with. I've had similar things happen at work. Am I seriously going to be punished with awkwardness and tension for every glance at a woman, intentional or not? And if it was intentional, as perhaps in some other case, a guy can't admire without wanting anything more than that?

Does anyone get what I’m saying? I expect some jokes on this thread, and you can tell me "Men have a one track mind", all they think about is sex, but I really don't have just one track to my mind, I have lots of tracks. Not everything is about sex or who a person is with. Please, someone tell me why women have a one track mind and think everything a man does has something to do with sex or dating? Thank you for your time and helping a young guy understand the opposite, and obviously more deranged, sex.

I don't know how others will answer Jeremy - but I spent most of my life with the majority of men never knowing my eyes were green, because no matter what the situation, or the conversation, they were staring at my breasts - it could be a reaction from previous expierence - but who knows why people do what they do...or maybe they are testing you

What kind of place is this, a beauty salon or something? Not all women are like that. Many of us have one track minds as well. I bet all those girls talk about you when you're gone. "OMG, he's sooooooooooo dreamy."

1. Availability: Maybe they are just throwing it out there so there won't be any awkward moments later. Maybe not for you - maybe for them. "Hey Jeremy, you have a nice butt, but I don't mean anything by that because I'm taken." I'll withhold judgment on that until I see your butt.

2) Compliments: People like to feel desired. People will make a bigger deal out of a compliment because its better to feel desired than it is to have someone point out that the strategic locations of your facial features are pleasing.

3) Boobs in the bar: Dude, you were staring at her boobs. She doesn't know you were spacing off. As far as she knows, you were just some creep locked into a trance on her boobs. By doing that, you sent her a message and she sent you a message back. "I'm with someone else."

I think someone's maturity level has a lot to do with how they react to the situations above. It makes some people feel good to let everyone they can know that you were hitting on them. Someone who is secure with themselves and comfortable with their own sexuality won't be playing those games.

So I guess it all depends on...hey.....hey....HEY JEREMY....my eyes are up here!

All I have to say, Jeremy, is you are hanging out with the wrong kind of woman! Just kidding. I know that you don't have any choice about the women you work with, etc., but it appears that fate has thrown you in with a group of very superficial women. What you are describing is a personality type that is very self-centered. If you start to tell a story, they have to turn the story around so that it is about them. If you are lost in thought, you must be thinking about their boobs. I can promise you that all women are not like this. I've had tons of good relationships with male co-workers and friends where the issue of sex has made itself known merely as an undercurrent that remained by mutual consent an undercurrent. On the other hand, I sort of get mixed messages from your posting. You like being told you have a cute butt (because you don't read too much into it) but don't want women to think you notice their breasts??? If you want to avoid problems, just be as professional as possible in the workplace and save the stories and jokes for after hours. Just my humble opinion!

Since I'm into Analysis, I'll try to enlighten you Stout....

1) Maybe the lady thought the story about the cat was so poignant....
She just wanted to let you know - she's been there and knows how you felt.
Women have a habit of empathizing....Either that or she was bored!!!!
2) Maybe when you compliment a lady on her "face" that's where you should
be looking....unless you are short and have a stiff neck....
3) There's a world of difference between a glance and staring fixedly....
Is it possible you mistook the tension to be negative???? Maybe she was
hoping you'd make a move, but was worried in case her partner objected????
Or maybe she thought she was flirting with you, and you misread the signs.

As you are the lone male there, I have two words for you....Carpe Diem!!!!

Wow, wasn’t sure this kind of post would work in the salty dog, still not quite sure I shouldn’t just ask those in I meet face to face! But thank you for your responses.

Redwing chick: When you discover the answer to these questions you will have unlocked the mysteries of the universe and enter a higher realm of consciousness. Until then you are just screwed. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

I guess as far as the availability check, I don’t remember noticing this part of dealing with women much when I was single, so maybe it only annoys me know because I don’t care anymore?

As far as the compliments go, I still don’t get why I feel that men are different than women in this area. I feel that most men can take a compliment about ANY body part, and women can’t, and that’s that.

And lastly, staring at the boobs, again I guess I’m confused because I feel that men are different than woman in this area. Embarrasingly, I’ve zoned out before to notice I was staring at a guys crotch, but was never made to feel it was an issue, just chalked up to a mistake and never thought about again. Confusing is all. Women do seem so uncomfortable with their bodies. I need to quit zoning out obviously, and think I would prefer at this point that this was a live conversation, but will live with what I have. Appreciate all your responses, some of it was quite enlightening!

Hey Jeremy,

You know the theory of why human female breasts are so large in comparison to nearly all other mammals'? (Bear/bare with me...)
Evolution: when humans began to copulate face to face, female mammary glands increased in size - possibly as a lure, the same as a peacock displaying their plumage. It's not know whether previous to this human females had bright red posteriors, like some species of monkey, but this theory does posit that the male was drawn to the backside before the, um, 'busty substances'; hence larger female buttocks in comparison to male.

So, the theory argues, it's genetics. And, one could infer, if you're a 'boob man' then you're an evolutionary success. If a 'butt man', you're an unreconstructed evolutionary throw-back.
Congratulations dude.

What Susan said. I work in an environment where there are both older and younger people in either professional and non-professional positions all under the same roof.I notice that the types of behavior you are describing more often appear in younger people but not always, and age is no barrier for immaturity or narcissism . I think your experiences have a lot to do with the people and environment you are in on a daily basis. That being said, we think your butt is cute too

Martin I'm surprised you didn't mention the origins of women wearing lipstick

When I see a woman look at my crotch I just assume I've forgotten to zip up, (again). I usually avoid talking to strange women at a bar because it usually means a double bar bill (tightwad), although I do stare at boobs a lot, So what. I figure if a woman doesn't want to get stared at then don't advertise the anatomy so blatantly. Over the years I have gotten a lot of put-downs for looking, commenting, etc, but the times I have scored make up for all that.

I'm usually unaffected by most guys, but every now and then, one comes a long that turns me into some stammering fool. We have a professor at work who is full Italian, but his family moved to France when he was a child. He's tall, dark hair, close cropped beard & mustache, dark eyes, and talks like Pepe le Pew. Every time he comes into my office, I find myself saying stupid things, I can feel my face grow hot, and I feel little swoony. One day, he was in my office and we were chatting away. I found myself spacing off and when I came to, I was staring right at his crotch. Once I discovered what I was doing, I immediately tore my eyes away but when I looked back at his face, I knew he knew. I felt like such an idiot. I avoided him for weeks.

Hey, Jeremy...

For me, cleaning pools, I dress for work in shorts and t-shirts and occasionally a bathing suit so I can do repairs on pools.

That doesn't mean that I am available (all of my customers have met Dave at one point or another) but somehow all these (pardon me) old men feel it's okay to hit on me!

And it sucks...

I feel your pain.

Jeremy,
Take it from a cagey old truck driver. Nowadays, there more interesting things to stare at on a women besides their mamory glands. Try from the neck up and what is between their ears. Then go down (past your attraction)to the waistline and consider the avenues you have down from there, even the toes. One last thing Jeremy, those pert,
firm attracters you notice do soften and droop a little as they pass the age of thirty.

Have you discussed these issues with your wife? Perhaps she would be curious why you don't bring up your availability upon first meeting a female....or why you are complimenting another woman's face...or how she would react if it appeared a random stranger at a bar was staring at her breasts while she was with you.

There has to be something in your approach. Most girls can quickly get a sense of a man's motivations merely by the way he tells an anecdote or gives a compliment. Maybe you aren't giving off the "safe" guy vibes, particularly because it seems to be recurring so often. I've been told I look angry when I zone out, maybe you have a ogling expression when you zone out. Tell me this...is your tongue in or out?

Really appreciate all of the input, obviously I can’t respond to all of theses posts, and in a short blurb in the salty dog I can’t really explain all the reasons why some of these things bother me, though Siouxsie and Kimiora’s impressions seem to ring the most true to me. Most of these girls are young girls, and I don’t have some of the same experiences with the older women I work with. One older-than-me woman I work with there is a sexual undercurrent in our relationship, both know it’s there but pretty much just choose to ignore it. I’m pretty sure I’ve looked at certain body parts in that relationship and neither of us get uncomfortable about. She’s not about to glare at me all night and position herself in the bar so I can see her rubbing her boyfriends’ crotch all night long! I just don’t understand why so much energy was wasted on an event that best forgotten while I relaxed and drank my beer and played pool. If I don’t look again, obviously I’m not interested.

But for some reason the older I get the dumber and more annoying some of the younger females seem, the dumb annoying games they play and so forth and so on. I could see how in a midlife crisis a man might have an affair with the younger secretary, but not exactly sure how he could marry and have to put up with some of that same young girl BS that seems to fade over time.

Erin: “Most girls can quickly get a sense of a man's motivations merely by the way he tells an anecdote or gives a compliment. Maybe you aren't giving off the "safe" guy vibes, particularly because it seems to be recurring so often.” Maybe that is true, but I honestly don’t agree with you, as some of these girls seem particularly dumb. I really don’t understand why my wedding ring isn’t enough, or with the girl in the bar, who wasn’t particularly attractive anyway, why just not looking again wasn’t enough for her to get the point that it was an accident. There are times when it isn’t an accident, but I’ll stop when I notice discomfort on the part of the other party. I think I’m pretty good at picking up on that stuff. I’m a guy, there are times when I’m going to look, get over it. My conversation sticks to ordinary humdrum topics, don’t see how I could be giving off that vibe.

Still, I have a dream about compliments, that one day I can walk into work and say, “Hey tina, you’re rack looks good in that T-shirt. So what’s on the agenda for today?”, and have it taken as a compliment and not a come on. I’ve admired certain parts of a woman before without wanting to get tangled up in a sexual relationship with that person. The best looking woman I ever dated was also in my opinion the most screwed up in the head, wouldn’t want those entanglements again for the life of me. I just don’t think that admiring beauty is always accompanied by lust.

"I just don’t think that admiring beauty is always accompanied by lust." I do know what you mean by this statement, Jeremy. For example, I can admire another woman's body without being a lesbo. But, for better or for worse, I have to say that you can't admire a woman's "rack" (hate that term) in the workplace without opening yourself up to sexual harassment charges.

Jeremy,
The reason that you don't understand the response of women is because you're not one. That's ok. We like you that way. But, your experience as a man simply is not the same as that of a woman.

If the experiences of other women are anything like mine, then they've been hit on constantly from about the age of 12. I had a man propose marriage to me as I served him from behind the counter at McDonald's. I'm pretty sure he meant it. I had known him for the same amount of time that it takes for me to say, "Do you want fries with that?" I don't ride public transportation because I'm absolutely a freak magnet. Freaks feel compelled to talk to me and offer me strange propositions. I once had a man in a country western bar offer to shave a very private portion of my body if I would only be willing to go to the parking lot with him. It was a heartfealt offer, I'm sure. I haven't been to a country western bar since, and wouldn't consider it unless I was wearing track shoes and accompanied by the Roadhouse version of Patrick Swayze. Or, Bruce Lee. I can't decide.

Even if your compliments are sincere, heartfelt, and innocent, the recipient of your kind words are wondering why you're saying this to her. What do you want? Are you a stalker? Or, are you just a nice guy?

It's not you. It is the accumulation of a lifetime of inappropriate conversations with weirdos. Play it safe. Don't compliment your female workmates. Leave that to her coworkers. Trust me ... If I go to work looking more amazing than usual, my friends will tell me. Just be nice. Smile. Be sincere. Don't buy her flowers unless it is Secretary's day ... and then don't forget!

Good luck! LOL

I'll let you in on a secret I learned a long time ago: Be a FRIEND first......the rest will follow.

Once a girl senses your friendship, not overtones of sexual conquest, she will relax and you will get to know each other better.

Being out of the work force since 2001, I am glad I'm outta' there. My company got bought out by a company from Milwaukee and their indoctrination meetings were very scary. All the new general manager focused on was sexual harassment and the penalties that would be enforced. What he didn't know was that the women were the aggressors and none of the guys paid attention to them. A year after I left, the general manager had to leave for breaking his own rules. If you go to work and you are concentrating on conquests or just plain fantasizing, call up Rosie Palmer and her five friends or take cold showers. Go to work, do your job and who knows, you might make enough money to own your own trivia site.

Koota, I realize the things you heard and saw were possibly very traumatic and scary, but that's kid stuff compared to some of the bars and truck stops I've been around. I can't even tap dance around describing some of the things I've seen and heard without getting a lifetime ban from this site. You got the right idea, stay away !!

Well... i could at least try to explain why i would act like that in those situations...
1. if i'm seeing someone, i'm so happy to be with them, that i can't stop talking about them. So if the girls are changing the topic, it could just be that that is what they are thinking about at the time...
2. i think that it might just be a kiwi thing, but we have what is known as "tall poppy syndrome" - cutting those down who are better than ourselves. so if someone gives you a compliment, the safest thing to do is to deny it ("oh you're just saying that. i'm not pretty"). otherwise other girls think that you love yourself, and frankly have soemthing stuck up your rear-end... basically, thinking you are pretty isn't a good thing.
3. if a guy is staring at your chest, it makes you very self-conscious. sort of a is-my-bra-showing-or-something? vibe... and you get sick of sleazy guys hitting on you, only after one thing. so this is the time to back away... no sudden movements....

So we combine Jeremy's and Katy's posts and we find the truth. People of each sex do unspeakably horrible thing to members of the opposite sex, which causes a vicious feedback cycle. People, male and female, get hurt badly, which makes them maladjusted, and makes them hurt others. Fine way to live. Makes me ashamed to be a human. Ptui.

Wow Ken. That's pretty harsh. I think the group of a$$holes about whom you speak are really the minority amongst us.

I guess, Jeremy, if I have to give you any advice, it all comes down to common sense. If it feels weird or that it may be construed as uncomfortable, don't say it or don't do it. If someone doesn't have the common sense to know where that line is, well, there's not much that can be done on these boards. That's a bigger issue.

And if you have any further questions, feel free to PM me. I'll answer you frankly and honestly.

The initial group is small, but it spreads.

I know you're a very statistical person, Ken. But I think you are failing to take into consideration the human element of choice. Not every single one of us who have been hurt by someone will turn around and lash out at another, just because a member of that sex once hurt us. If that were the case, every single one of us would be causing someone else pain.

Because who amongst us has never been hurt by another? What we do with that experience is simply a matter of choice. We can propagate the hurt, or we can learn from it and move on.

Spread the love.

My only advice is KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE. That's it, plain and simple.

I have some friends I can walk right up to and say "your ass looks fat in those jeans", they'd say "thanks, I'll go change". Others would never speak to me again.

Speaking as a relatively callous and invulerable person, if you said "Kelly, your rack looks nice in that shirt (provided I know you)"...I'd first question your eyesight, then feel bad for you cause you obviously had never really seen a nice rack, then say "Dude, thanks".

I have rarely been insulted and when I am, trust me, I'll come right back at ya. I don't mean people haven't tried, but when I don't give a ratzazz about your opinion, I don't...I move on.

Jeremy, all women are NOT like that. Some of us can take a compliment and move on, not consider it being hit on. Some are more sensitive or introverted than others, simple fix, make sure you know who you're talking to.

That being said, anytime you want to compliment me (guessin you'd have to be off your rocker) feel free.

Me.

Stout,

Just tell them up front. Say, " I'm Gay...." Then continue with your story... After a few such admissions, they wont see you as a threat anymore, and might treat you like one of the girls, or maybe one of the hairier girls-with-a-penis, but regardless, you'll get the relief you want.

Now, if you ever DO have aspirations to "get" with one of them, yer pretty well screwed after that, except for the one 480 lb woman who will decide she can make you "straight" again.....

Good luck with that........

Katy, if women don't like being "hit on", or in other words women don't like the way men try to go about picking up on women, why don't women reverse the tables and pick up on us? I understand some men are pigs. And women do pick up on men, and thereby face the threat of rejection, it DOES happen, but as far as I'm concerned not often enough. No woman ever treats me to a dinner, or a ring, or an expensive wedding. Sometimes it seems women in the feminist movement just pick the pleasant parts of life to want to be a part of and leave the rest for us to deal with. Really liked your post Ken. I know this might stir up some trouble, but so be it.

All I know is things changed when I got progressive lens, which cause your eyes to sometime move into positions that give the wrong impression while finding the correct focal point in the lens.

My advice to you is to start drinking heavily.

" No woman ever treats me to a dinner, or a ring, or an expensive wedding"...geesus.

No one treated me to ANYTHING...hubby AND I paid for it ourselves (interjection of I've always made more money than him) so even the ring, in theory I paid for.

Again my dear Young Lad...not ALL women are like the few you work with. Some of us are FABULOUS!!

You would think that after 16 years of marraige, I would have the woman's mind sorta figured out. Not hardly, and having two daughters that are becoming teenagers only makes it worse on me. I know how to be polite, courteous, and all that kinda stuff to women, but beyond that I usually stay away from the compliments or even the gestures that might give a woman a wrong impression. Truth is, most women like to be noticed and admired....just as long as you notice and admire without saying ANYTHING. Compliments and even a harmless conversation seem to suggest to them that you have a personal interest in them, when this is usually nothing of the case. Now I have noticed that most women over, maybe 35, seem to overcome a lot of that, and are very open to just being social and friendly without fear or apprehension. I see both sides of this, as many women have deep scars from something bad that came from that one jerk that ruined it for them, and many men have made that harmless comment or gesture that was thrown out of porportion, and caused them way more trouble than they ever bargained for. I have learned that keeping distant keeps you out of the target a lot easier. I wish there was an easy answer or method to figure each side out...but then I'd have a different career going if I knew that answer, wouldn't I???

Still, if you are compelled to express your admiration to a woman you have no hope or intention of sleeping with, "you look nice today" will serve you much better than "your rack looks hot in that sweater."

Usually that works better even if you do have the intention of sleeping with her.

And again...if I know you "your rack looks good" is fine with me...if I don't "You look Smokin" works just as well.

It's about knowing who you are talking to...and knowing their reaction/personality/tolerance.

The SAME is true for men...if I walked up to a total stranger and found myself inadvertently staring at his crotch...same issue. Would be totally embarassed and would have to dismiss myself from the encounter. Don't think (if I didn't know him), "Nice package", would make me less uncomfortable.
