Metricula and I were discussing this at lunch.

We think it's because if you look men in the eye, they'll believe you're interested in them and try to hit on you. So women look down to avoid lots of unwanted attention.

What do you think? Do you notice more women looking down when they walk then men?

avoiding eye contact by either sex is a sign of shyness

i only notice people who look shy/inferior looking down. male or female. i never understood that. just look past people if you don't want to make eye contact.

I expected the punchline to a joke in this thread ...

I don't really notice women looking down more, but I do notice them having a more reserved stance, with arms crossed and the like, which I guess gives the same effect.

avoiding eye contact is also a sign of not wanting to be approached.

if I had tits, I'd be staring at them all the time too










honestly, I think that people who look down to walk are shy, and unsure of themselves

personally I think higher of the ones that actually make eye contact, you can tell a lot about someone just from their eyes

A man interested in the opposite sex. How unusual. Unwanted? HAHAHA When do you want attention? You have like a set schedule or something for that shit?

I thought they told girls at orientation not to look down when they walk and not to cross their arms to avoid being raped.

I always thought it was to encourage checking out of the rack without the awkward attached eye contact

Girls just feel like because they are girls they should have the advantage when it comes to wanting or giving attention. Just act like she looks like a piece of dog shit and this is sure to get you laid.

I work in a sports bar. I don't like creepy men making eyes at me all the time. I normally look down when I pass a table full of men or I like by them without making eye-contact. I mostly look down because I want to avoid unwanted attention.

I only flirt and make eye-contact if you're in my section and I want a big tip.

a lot of men seem to think that making eye contact or not pointedly looking away means you're interested. i have this problem a lot because i don't look down.

Here is a better question. Why do really fine girls walk around with a pissed off look on their face? Is it for the same reason Vix said?

There are a higher ratio of hot girls with pissed off faces than ugly girls

You would think it would be the opposite

If I was a 10, I'd have a big ass smile on face whenever I was strolling for cock

If I was a 3, I'd probably have an eternal scowl

I just don't understand why women, especially attraction ones that like to get all pretty and dresses sexy, don't expect men to give you attention. Your beauty only curses you because you don't realize this. In this society women and vag have been put on pedestal so why go around looking down at the ground for no reason? Its like a celeb trying to avoid getting her pic taken when she has become famous and put themselves under the microscope of the public eye. Girl logic FTL.

This is a good point. If I was a 10 I'd have a big ass smile on my face ALL the time.

They know they should not be out of the kitchen and feel ashamed.

Vix and Metricula are obviously inferior/creepy, and women want to keep their distance.

I don't look down. Eye contact and a smile ftw.

[Edited on November 4, 2008 at 3:43 PM. Reason : Maybe it is insecurity but I don't assume that men are interested in me.]

I have a semi-long neck, so around this time of year I get a little chilly unless I'm looking kinda down.

not a woman, but that's my input.
