Why do women default into thinking that flirting is unilateral?
You see comments all the time that say "this guy was flirting with me". Nevermind the fact that most women won't ever leave the house without smelling like a flower, being made up, having nice clothes on and always doing their best to smile and keep up the appearance as though they are happy and friendly. As if there's never anything but total innocence.
If they see men spending as much time working on themselves, there's no question in their mind that the guys are obviously looking to pick someone up or otherwise up to no good of some kind. But NEVER the other way around.
The whole idea of flirting seems to be yet another destructive double standard that women will never let go of.
