  • No not really! I keep hearing this, and TRULY nothing could be further from the truth. While it IS true, that if we like a guy who is flirty w/ us (appropriately) at work, we would be receptive to move our work relationship to a dating relationship. Whereas we would not be receptive if it was a guy we do NOT like, or find attractive. But there a HUGE difference between being flirty but respecting us when we say “I’m sorry, but I’m just not interested in going out with you” and sexually harassing us! When we are sexually harassed in the workplace, the guys looks become irrelevant! If he’s rude, and completely inappropriate, and it NEVER stops, no matter how many times we ask or beg him to stop, politely! Even though we may have once found him attractive, his harassment of us crosses a line… regardless of how good looking he is, or how attracted to him we really were! Just don’t cross that like.. PERIOD!

    • @CrazyGirl2 Well you've certainly cleared that up so perfectly and accurately that I cannot think of anything to add... Thank you and well done. x

    • @EmmaMary WOW! Thank you, that was extremely kind of you to say, and it was such a beautiful compliment. 🥰

    • @Crazygirl2 You are so very, very welcome indeed. x As the saying goes "All Credit Where Credits Due"

  • Absolutely not, no. You don't have to be unattractive to make people uncomfortable, and if you're making strong, unwanted advances and saying inappropriate things then it doesn't matter how handsome he is: he's harassing and acting like a creep. I always do everything reasonable in my power to make women comfortable regardless if they find me attractive because people take things in different ways, but aggression is usually a no-no for most.

  • In MOST cases, the creepy stuff is mostly because the guy is doing creepy things, whether intentional or not. I found out the hard way that most girls call it creepy when a guy is just nervous. That blew my mind and seems so stupid because shouldn't a word BESIDES "creepy" be used? lol Creepy has stalker/rapey connotation, so it seems illogical to lump even just nervous/anxious behavior into that. Especially since the only guys who won't have any visible nerves/anxiety are the ones most likely to be harassing or pushy. Either way, most cases are only consodered harassment by girls when the guy is actually doing shit that crosses the line like talking about her tits or pervy shit.

    However, there are plenty of examples of 2 guys saying the same thing (like, "Your eyes are gorgeous" or "Do you workout"?) that are treated as creepy when the girl doesn't think the guy is attractive, but when the girl DOES find the guy attractive, she eats it up. I've actually watched this in person several times while I was in college.

  • I think most smart men already knew this, yeah.

    It's completely, 100% true, yeah.

  • Disagree

  • That's not true. I can speak from personal experience. A guy who I was attracted to has really pushed the boundaries and I have felt uncomfortable so that's still harassement.

  • That's 100% true, if she were to be the judge of it. If someone sees it it's a little different.

  • There is possible sexual harassment done by women towards a man, a man towards a woman, woman towards another women and a man towards another man. In each instance, it does depend on how the person being harassed perceives the attention and if they reciprocate. If the harasser crosses the boundary between a professional stance and then starts harassing without the consent of the personal being harassed, then you sexual harassment. Gender plays no role.

  • Nope

  • I do.

  • Yes I do. It's all about if they want it or not which hinders on this

  • It does help but there big difference between flirting and being creepy

  • no.. its false.
    it depends on her and on the place u r doing it.. 😊😉❤️💦😘

  • We often say that as a joke, but in reality that's not true. While it is a fact that a woman might be more lenient if the guy pushing the boundary is attractive to her, there is still a certain limit to what a guy can get away with before making a woman feel harassed. No matter how hot your office worker is, if he suddenly grabs your breast on office hours, that's sexual harassment

  • To a certain extent

  • Not how attractive but how welcome the attention is or not. There are guys who are not necessarily attractive but who can flirt with me and touch me because I like them.
