DON’T ask us to buy you a drink
We are telling your mother.
DON’T pick us up by "negging"
A woman carries herself confidently. She knows that even the handsomest of strangers have no right to shove their critique down her throat.
DON’T hang on to delusional ambition
So that Victoria’s Secret model won’t buy you a drink? But you were so nice! FYI, “nice” is a bare minimal requirement. There’s nothing wrong with being a little frumpy, smelly, chubby, nerdy, or socially awkward; but there is something wrong with expecting a woman to meet any standard that you don’t.
DON’T invade our personal space
Until we have gone on a date and built a rapport -- or verbally expressed a clear intention to take you home -- please don’t touch our bodies or possessions. Bette Davis would have slapped you 10 minutes ago.
DON’T put down others to compliment us
Whether it’s, “You’re the hottest thing in this room,” or “You are way too good for that guy,” the subtlest insult is still an insult. Who’s to say you won’t treat us the way you treat them?
