I've seen a few posts about this by separate users the past week or two. So let's get it straight.
Is his attention to a woman valuable? It depends on the man and how he sees her.
If he's a man looking at me, asking me out just because I'm another pretty girl (of which there millions) that's WORTHLESS. I'll add him to the list of 3 billion other guys who also like pretty women. No value in that at all. I have self-esteem and self-respect, so I don't need his opinion on that, especially when his opinion is worthless. Do we appreciate the compliments? Sure. But let's be real, we hear it every day. You are no different from every other guy who says it. You shouldn't expect a woman with any self-esteem to value attention you give to everybody. Think of it like supply and demand. Not valuable.
If he's a man looking at me, asking me out because he likes who I am and he sees the value in me, now we have a good situation :) Now we have a situation where it is to be appreciated, to feel humble about it because nobody says he has to love me for who I am. This kind of attention is valued and appreciated. This is the kind of attention that is flattering, that DOES make me want to go out with a guy. When he likes you for you! Because... how many does he like for who they are? Supply and demand - now we're getting somewhere.
Big difference! Short take but I think it was needed. Guys, #takenotes
