Every time I show up outside of my house, there are at least two strangers who whistle, yell out hello, or say "niiiiiice" when I can hear it. Those are cleches, most guys find more creative ways to "start a conversation." Sometimes, it's a compliment, sometimes it's harassment, depending on my mood. I usually gaze into horizon, but lately, I started to look around at other people, and I noticed each guy at least gives me a glance. Is it only NY men who do that? Is it only American men? Does every guy you know do that? Do you do that? Nobody in their right mind would jump on your neck if you're a stranger on the street, so why do you do it? If a girl makes eye contact, what do you think? If a girl smiles back, what do you think? If a girl says hi, what does that mean to you? (Well, it doesn't get further than that, 99% of the time Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! ) And, if the girl ignores you, do you find it offensive? What do you expect from a decent female after you whistle/comment?
