Why do women drop 'subtle' hints?
I've had many experiences of women dropping hints, and then expecting me to read their minds, getting mad when I inform them I can't. Why do they do it?

I did this with my last boyfriend so I knew that he wasn't just using me to get a piece of ass ! Guys do that all of the time ! We never know if your really paying attention, or if your just using us ! Plus if they don't know already then when we get mad at them they should know, and we should be able to drop other hints telling them that they need to pay more attention to how we look at things . I know that your trying and that's all that matters . So prove to her that for example you may know more about skateboarding than nail polish . You need to tell her that you do listen but you can't remember everything . And she needs to learn to trust you and understand where your coming from .

That's just what women do sometimes . Now if they keep getting mad at you, then maybe you just need to ask them what they are thinking, rather than try to interpret them . They can't really get mad if you are flat out asking them what they want and what they are thinking . Also, I know lots of girls who do this, but none that continuously get mad about it . Are these the right girls for you ?
Women in our society can't just fling themselves at a man (or give obvious signs of interest) without being called a slut. We're stuck trying to drop subtle hints in order to encourage men to pursue us. Some of it is a game too. How boring it would be if everyone you wanted just jumped into bed with you the moment they felt like it. :P It draws out the expectation to have to figure out what she's thinking. Men aren't exactly the most obvious creatures to read at all times either, so sometimes women aren't sure what to do. Thus, we are all confused...
Most people feel as tho they need to be understood, right ? well usually I've found that if a women is dropping hints then she wants something done and can't understand why you don't know her well enough to know what she's on about . so they get mad because they feel like there not being listened too or appreciated

Because something in their mind says. I feel like confusing the shit out of this @sshole I'm with. This is the real reason they call men dogs because when they drop these hints or when the speak indirectly we cock our heads to the side and look at them just like a confused dog. And they CLAIM it's because we look at girls with our tongues hanging out. << DON'T LET THAT SH!T FOOL YOU! :D
Its to keep you on your toes and second guessing all your moves. If you are confused then you are vulnerable and it helps them build a repertoire of incidents to instantly recall from their "Remember that day when you really hurt me when you didn't" file. :)
