I am a 29 year old male who works in a high-volume retail store (I also attend college with a large female student body), yet females generally 20-29 years of age rarely, talk, compliment or flirt with me. Young men, does this happen to you or does the opposite occur? Nevertheless, older women tend to flirt, compliment or talk to me. What are your thoughts on this?

its like this. Women aged 20-29 are not interested in you for stupid reasons. Women older are either just nice and do not care about you at all. But they do not want you to feel lonely so they talk with you. Others just want to talk with someone.

I think that those women take flirting and the possible consequences of the flirting too seriously. For instance, if a young lady from that age group did flirt with you innocently, chances are that you would think that it meant more than it did, try to ask her out, then she would have to turn you down. You'd get frustrated and mad, and consider her a ****-tease. So for those young women, it's not worth even flirting in a light hearted way with you.

Secondly, you are just the store clerk. They are in there just to shop, they are not there looking for a boyfriend. Unless you are really really good looking, they aren't interested interacting with you socially. Just keep things professional with them.

I think girls 20-29 are more used to having boys hit on THEM, versus "older" (though over 29 is not old!) women are more confident and have the guts to approach you first.

"Confidence?" If the OP have some that is. If he want young girls to approach him, maybe he should try to get out from behind the counter and go out somewhere. This is real life, not some show like 90210 or something.

Anyway, to Rwarky, being in a college campus, I'm sure there are parties over there, and you still can't get a girl to talk to you?

It is NOT common; however it has happened on occasion. Usually women over 21 throw out some compliments to me every now and again. I'm a hot guy though; otherwise, my advice is try and flirt first, do so by making deep eye contact and a little smile or a nod of the head. Tractor beam eyes are the best way to flirt first. I do that and it works both with the ladies and with guys. Do not feel bad if the ladies seem to be in their own self absorbed little world.....when I flirt with ladies it is only in a friendly way....
