Genuinely I don't like it,it can make me feel very uncomfortable to walk past a group of guys and have them cat-call or wolf whisle after me,makes me feel too self concious.
I become overly aware of myself-i think its fair to say that MOST women dread walking past a load of builders,you kind of think "oh here me go" and try and fix a nonchalent look on your face because you KNOW they are going to say something/cat-call.
It can feel very intrusive,imho,to have a group of guys check you out.
Like many others have said, it depends on who's doing it. If a nasty looking guy does it, I actually feel kind of disgusted with myself (I guess it makes me feel badly about myself if I attract someone who's deeply unattractive), so I'd rather they not. Either than that, it can be nice. But if they're attractive and they find me attractive, they may feel free to look. Just do it respectfully. Don't yell after women and don't follow them. It's frightening and will kill almost any chance that you may have if you had one to begin with.
I think every girl likes to be flirted with and get hit on , but there's a limit. I can remember when I was at a club with a friend and this guy just appeared everywhere and kept asking to buy me a drink even though I kept saying no. When it gets to be overbearing then I don't like it. As long as it's done with tact I like it... but every now and then it's nice for a guy to be over the top about it, like to keep looking at me nd whatnot lol
It depends, really. If the guy is being nice and being a proper gentleman, than yes, I like it because that type of guy doesn't make me feel cheap or like an object. That type of guy makes me feel pretty and want to smile. The other guys who say or imply vulgar things about me just kind of make me feel sad and want to disappear. I try to put on a polite smile when I encounter guys like these and pretend that their remarks don't bother me, but inside, they really do.
It's mixed for me. See, I'm somewhat of an introvert, and I absolutely hate a lot of attention. I feel as if it makes me stand out like a sore thumb. I know that it's absolutely ridiculous to be so shy, but I just can't help that. When a guy checks me out, I don't mind. As long as he's not making any obscene expressions or staring at my body 'that' way. It does make me feel good that I get looks from guys. But if a guy were to whistle or cat call, or anything in that category, I absolutely hate it! I don't know how to respond to that, so it embarasses me a great deal. I don't mind receiving compliments, but that kind of attention isn't very nice or enjoyable. That's me.
I put other because yes, sometimes it does boost my confidence especially if I wasn't feeling too good about the way I looked that day. However, I find that most of the guys who hit on girls on the street are really trashy or sleazy looking. They look and sound like pigs. I don't like comments like "Hey, baby!" or "Hey, sexy!" It creeps me out. But, sometimes - if done by someone I could be attracted to and said nicely - I like the compliments.
honestly I feel weird getting hit on. Growing up I was always teased and no one would bother to talk to me. Now I'm a swan but I still have the same scars from the past. It kinda freaks me out like its a joke or something bad is going to happen to me. But its just me.
I hate it! I find it disgusting... and so do many New Yorkers I have across from... it especially comes from Hispanic, black and white men who are construction workers, I find. (Not to be racist. This is just usually who hits on girls. And girls do not like it in NY.) If they do like it, they like a glance from a good looking guy. Usually good looking guys do not whistle or say anything but look at the girl slightly. It's even creepier when old guys do it and the girl is only in her teens. I have felt like that all my life living here and it's degrading because it's never from a decent looking guy.
