Women can be naive

Men\’s relationships with their female friends may be fuelled by an undercurrent of sexual attraction regardless of whether they are single but the feeling is not mutual, a new study suggests.

The average man considers the sexual attractiveness of the female bus driver when paying his fare let alone the bird he has coffee with twice a week.

  1. Something I’ve often wondered: Do gay men have this same attitude towards male bus drivers, let alone the chap he has cocktails with twice a week?

  2. “The average man considers the sexual attractiveness of the female bus driver when paying his fare”.

    Indeed. The average male bus driver gives weighty consideration to the lissomness of the gal running for the bus before deciding whether to drive off anyway.

    Oxonymous, you’ve heard the one about how to make a fruit cordial, I presume?

  3. “Do gay men have this same attitude towards male bus drivers.” Consider the case of E M Forster.

    “… he worked in Alexandria for the International Red Cross. There was less disapproval of Forster’s homosexuality in Alexandria and in 1917 he began living with an Egyptian tram conductor, Mohammed el Adl.”

  4. Women seem to have no idea at all just how much men like/ think about sex.
    They all think we’re friends with them because they’re so charming, witty and intelligent.

    And of course, how attractive she is while running for the bus…..if she looks good running he might drive away, but slowly

  6. Guys, your comments only apply to women of child-bearing age, of couse. Women too old to be of use in spreading the genes are valued because of their wit, intelligence and charm. At least I hope they are. f not, then you’re all cavemen really, aren’t you?

  7. Frances, I’ve never known a bus driver drive away from a nice young filly, not even slowly. Although if she’s well-stacked it might make sense to keep her running. I’m just saying, ahem.

    As to women of child-bearing age, I confess that every now and again I’ve seen a lady of maturer years with whom I’d have happily, if forlornly due to her likely age, have attempted to spread the Lud genes.

  8. If not, then you’re all cavemen really, aren’t you?

    Despite the thin veneer of civilisation, my dear, we are all cave-persons not that far down, sex independent. And apes a mere glue-depth further (to stretch the analogy a bit too far) and burrowing shrew-like creatures terrified of dinsaurs still within easy emotional reach.

    That was what I meant – keep her running, enjoy the view, then eventually let her aboard. Sigh.

  10. Surreptitious Evil

    How long did cavewomen live beyond the age of 50? Your dinosaur brains can’t cope with the fact that nowadays a significant proportion of women are of a breed that your cavemen hardly ever saw – a breed that is of no use whatsoever in spreading your genes. Does that make them useless? Hardly. Wit, charm and intelligence are the new sexy. Get used to it.
