View Diary: I just ignored the most beautiful woman I've seen face to face in years (90 comments)

  •  Gentlemen of any age initiate conversations (11+ / 0-)

    only with ladies (of any age) to whom they have been properly introduced. There are exceptions, of course -- in case of offering help of some sort, in either direction, or if you are in a bar or coffeehouse where the understood point of being there is to meet people. And I am certainly not excluding a friendly greeting, especially in towns or small cities where this is the norm.

    But as a general rule, it is the safest way to go.

      it is not just "initiating conversations," but doing so because you find someone attractive, and whether or not you vocalize a comment about their appearance.

      It's not faux psychoanalysis.  I guess folks around here don't read feminist blogs much?  This is a huge topic of discussion online.  

      The poll in this diary gives away the subtext in my opinion.  Why on earth would you "engage" someone you found looked "familiar" (but not familiar enough to place them of course), and why would you make so much of a deal over how beautiful you find someone who also just happens to look "familiar."
