I was JUST talking about this last night.
I was at the Justin Timberlake concert with my friend when a man walked up to us to say 'Hey ladies, I just want you two to know that you are stunning." and walked away.
When he left, I said, 'That's awkward.' My friend, who is the sweetest, said 'He was just paying a compliment. He probably had to work up the courage.'
I guess she was right.
But over the years, as women, we are subject to so many demining remarks and cat calls on the street. Usually I return those with a rude hand gesture and a '**** you!' (to which my friends say 'Alex, your Jersey is showing.).
I can tell if a man is being sweet and sincere or being a pig.
If you want to know what I react so harshly, watch the video below. She explains it PERFECTLY.
Ladies, do you agree? Men, how do you feel about this?
