After reading a lot of women responses it seems that women generally like to tell other women to ignore a man until they wanna talk to you... This is silly and leads to men thinking your not interested and then we move on... I believe women are sabotaging themselves and making guys feel crappy

Great question! *****
Generally, I don't think women SPECIFICALLY set out to give bad dating advice. Women simply don't quite "get" the bro code, so our ability to decipher what you guys want or need from us at any given moment has to go to the Grand Council for assessment and ratification -- AKA, Girls' Night Out with Mojitos and Cosmos. (Ahem, while the friends lend support, be assured that the beverages don't foster the ability to obtain fantastic advice.)
In some very specific cases (where self-serving b*tchy persons are concerned), bad advice is specifically given to impede a girl's access to a particular guy. The advisor may have earmarked the guy for herself, or has some desire for her female friend, which means she sees the guys as competition for the attention and affection of the advisee. (I've seen both scenarios and the outcomes of such applied sabotage just ain't pretty.)
Online, of course, the rule of thumb is to SEARCH for answers till you find one that makes sense. If a person offers an answer in which you're not interested, you just ignore it (like the guy/girl who doesn't pique your interest, lol).
The advice to "ignore" a guy isn't quite accurate. But watch your guy friends the next time you're out and you'll notice that the girls who attract their attention are the ones who *know* how to "ignore" them in a flirtatious way, looking for a sec, then looking away, engaged in conversation, etc., dancing, then looking back to see if he's noticed her, then smiling and "ignoring" him again. That's the thing they're most likely talking about. It's not the same as giving the guy the cold shoulder, which indicates distinct disinterest...1
