    My best friends have always been people at least ten years older than myself.

    Them, and cats and dogs.

    And I do love to hear the stories too, the Great Depression is a favorite subject, WW2 and of course those wonderful old movies I have made such a study of.

    That's quite an ice-breaker.... I'd be some damn "hippy-freak" until we started talking old movies.

    I like to hear the stories and they like to pass them on and are glad to see someone is actually interested in them and their life.

    I remember one guy in particular, a guy named Bob Sharp, he had a whole shoebox full of pictures from his time in France right after the war in Europe.

    Thx

    Guys,that works on men,too.there is no limit to being kind. But that does not mean fake.

    It depends on how you do it. First of all, read the room. Some women aren't interested. You can't open with overtly sexual. You have to work your way up to that. You have to figure out if the woman is into it.
    This thread is kind of bullshit. If you do it right, women love being flirted with and complimented. Who doesn't like knowing that they're attractive? But you have to be cool about it. Don't be a creep. Be funny. Be charming.

    Either that or they will assume you usually think their hair looks like shit which would also be sexual harassment.

    Like this story:
    What in the fuck does your story have to do with The Man's comment?
    The comment to Lisa Kudrow was obviously sexist and inappropriate
    WTF???.

    OH? It would be wise to say to a female co-worker, "say, that hair dye job looks great, you look younger?"
    You'd say that to a male co-worker and he'd grin and say thanks.

    "Nice haircut" is safe ground.

    "When are you expecting?" is always risky. Never assume a woman is pregnant until she's at least 3cm dilated.

    Women are more sensitive now more than ever. They get offended by everything. I'm including liberal men in this generalization too, obviously.

    Like this story:
    That's nuts. Not your story, your suggestion that telling someone she got a nice haircut is equivalent to your story.

    Harassment has much more carefully defined parameters. One off-hand remark does not a "hostile environment" make.

    Frustrated man is single, and women generally avoid him. This issue comes up, and suddenly "he can't compliment a woman anymore" even though they never wanted his compliments in the first place, if he ever had the courage to offer them. It's quite a blessing, because now he has something to blame his loneliness and anger on. Liberals.

    Why "obviously?" Nothing "obvious" about it, explain your comment.
