Ore's notes has a complaint about that same old yak yak from men who accost you on the street – like you are really going to jump in their car or go on a date with some fool who stops you on the street? Ore's comment…”do men think so little of women that they think we will drop at their feet with these really weak approaches? I can imagine that it must be daunting for a man when he sees a woman somewhere and wants to get to know her. But, humour, honesty and sincerity work for most of the women I know (myself included); sleazy lines soooo do not. And additional word of advice: checking out any body parts is strongly not advised.
