peppamintG has indicated that this thread is about United Kingdom

This is somthing that has rattled my brains for years and im sure its been playing on other female minds this is......Why do men constantly stare when a woman walks down the street, it seems we are the ones in the wrong for wearing nice clothes and having fashion sense. We have been followed home, stared at, shouted at, beeped at and nearly run over by some crazy dudes wanting our numbers and attention, and thats all in one day people.

Any incite on this would be greatly appreciated because im confused. x

Who knows? I guess that's what machismo is all about. It's not an insult so I rarely take offence... unless it's of the creepy kind. When someone observes your moves from afar and follows you around, that's just crossing the line of freakiness. I don't think you're in the wrong when you wear nice clothes and such. The honking, staring, shouting are like forms of appreciation... annoying but that's what they are. The following home and running over... not so cool.

It's one of those love-hate things. When a guy driving a St. Hubert BBQ chicken delivey car beeps his horn at you, the first thing you do is swear under your breath, and the second thing you do is smile.

I agree with the line-crossing, though. We've all had one incident that got too weird for comfort, I'm sure

What I can't understand, is that when I beep a good looking girl in my Mitsubishi, I generally get "the finger". Yet when I do the same thing in my BMW, it's smile all 'round!

Any explanation on this would be greatly appreciated.

Maybe it's a Japanese / German thing

Women's take - the Mits is considered a boy's toy and/or an attempt to cure some mid-life crisis - both which equate to the primal need of wanting to get laid. A BMW drips sophistication (no matter what the model) and you have that pesky primal urge on a short leash. The price tag doesn't enter into the equation. What colors are the Mits and BMW? That says alot too.
Mits - you love your car
BMW - you love your women

Maybe they aren't gesturing to you at all... Maybe it's your car's aura...

Well put Isadora .... lol

Let me tell you, the Mits is NOT a boy's toy. It's a conservative four door sedan with a baby's seat in the back. It's as far from a mid-life crisis as a car can be. It's a nice blue colour.

The BMW is silver, and is actually my wife's car. It's newer than the Mitsubishi, and has nice wheels and is very slick. It also has a baby's seat in the back!

So girls which is it; the blue Mitsubishi that screams "I'm an accountant with a young family and live in the suburbs", or the rather slick silver BMW?

Turning the tables for a moment, and assuming that I'm the guy that's being whistled at, as bad as it sounds, I'm going to be somewhat flattered if a very lovely girl takes notice, but if a fat chick does then...who cares?

Personally, I think colour has nothing to do with it. Either way, I love my woman! (note - singular)
