I have no idea..its just a gamble I guess. thing is, if I'm being friendly and open, he'll do what he wants if he's interested..from what I've noticed happen to me and my friends. At least most men would understand that even if I'm not interested, that I'll turn him down nicely instead of rudely like women who are not friendly would do. but this is just my experience..everyone else has different experiences. if he doesn't make a move, I just assume disinterest. its probably a bad idea to assume, but what else am I supposed to think? the last thing I'm thinking is that some guy is too intimidated by me.

We can add modesty to your long list of qualities.

I'll never understand that Brad Pitt thing... He's not really handsome and he's definitely not hot. In fact, he's pretty much cold fish.

LOL! I think he's good looking but nothing out of the ordinary so ya I don't get the big deal over him either.

Well said. Sometimes I wonder if women ever think if the guys around her simply don’t find her attractive, interesting, or both, instead of thinking that men don’t approach her because she’s too hot and too smart.

The whole signal game can be deceiving. A woman might intend to “send signals” by smiling, giggling, playing with her hair, clearing her throat, whatever. And a guy might “decipher” the signals and approach her and start from there. A woman might play with her hair, smile, etc. simply because she wants to but not because she wants to “send signals”. You’ll have a man approach and try to do something about it only to see her get angry and give him an attitude. I prefer to show and to see a friendly clear message that someone either wants to be with me or not.

Yeah, "pretty boy" is a slam. The "pretty boy" needs to figure out a way to unpretty real fast.

wow..if all I have to do is giggle, smile and twirl my hair, I'd be married by now! those are not signals. its just stuff some women do. I'm kinda shy, especially around new people so at times I've overdone the giggling and hair twirling without realizing it. no wonder so many men on here have trouble..poor guys.

I would think it has more to do with approachability. I've seen some beautiful women out at the restaurants/bars/clubs and there were no shortage of men surrounding them. If a beautiful woman smiles and looks like she's having a nice time, men are less intimidated. If a beautiful women looks pissed or miserable, chances are men are going to leave her alone.

My sister was always very popular for her looks back in HS, college and later on. She never had a problem meeting men.

Is it true that men are afraid to approach a woman they find extremely attractive, or is it just a line used to make these women feel better?
Why waist your time on things that will never go anywhere.

Most women who are classified as good looking cost to much to even be around and no matter what you do for the they are never satisfied.

And when they get old their beauty is well you know over and here comes the wrinkles and the prune faced

Click here .. it might be the answer to the problem.
