Best Answer Anne says
Thank you so much for answering my question without judging me. And it's because of that why you win the prize! God bless.
See, you started off your answer to me assuming I'm a snob!
No I assumed you are like most of (us)! :-)
It's human nature to ignore people we have no interest in meeting. Are you the exception? My point is everyone chooses who they are going to be "friendly" towards, sit next to, or spend time with.
Well then, yes, I guess I am the exception (or in this case), the acception. I speak to everyone I meet or at least smile.

The "too nice theory" - men who are "too nice" finish last. Therefore they start to behave like the "bad boy" who appears to get all of the girls who seem to say: "We adore those who ignore us and ignore those who adore us." Being aloof attracts.
Thanks dashingscorpio. I had no idea. Wow! That theory is depressing, although I have witnessed it... just didn't know there was a name for it.
I'm not sure if there is a widely recognized name for it. People tend to model what appears to be working. Fortunately most human beings evolve overtime. Most women eventually abandon the "bad boy" phase and most bad boys settle down becoming loving
Attention all of you!!!!!!!!! All I asked was a simple question about men in general and none of you answered the question. Instead you made me out to be a victim. Perhaps before you answer another question learn to listen first!
Alaina Smith Cain, Just because most people don't believe your (generalization) that "men are mean to women." This does not imply they are calling you a victim! (Some) men are mean just as (some) women are mean however (MOST) people aren't mean :-)
You obviously didn't read the rest of these answers beyond yours. I only commented under your post because it was at the top. It was only a matter of position not selection.
Alaina Smith Cain, Please review your comment using (ALL) and (NONE)
Here is what you said: "Attention (all) of you!!!!!!!!! All I asked was a simple question about men in general and (none) of you answered the question."
Did I read that wrong?
You answered the question another commenter said. You explained what "too nice" was NOT why men can be so mean. You answered a question but it wasn't mine.
I apologize for making you feel judged, Alaina Smith Cain. The reason some men are so mean is because they were never taught to respect women. Whenever we encounter such men, the best thing to do is walk the the other way.
It's okay savvy, really. I answer questions like these all the time and so many bloggers lose focus on the question at hand. True enough I wanted an answer, but mainly I posted the question to prove a point.
