Re: wtf is going on with women
thank you for all the replies.
First off, I asked the co worker if she drinks coffee, she said yea, and I then retrieved the card and handed it to her and said, get a cup or two or some hot coco. Thats it.

I return to find the card and note.

Am I hurt? Yes
Do I hate her? No
Do I feel uncomfortable around her now? Yes

I gave the card to another co worker today, no problems (coworker was a female also). She said thanks, and I said, you deserve it youre a hard worker.

That's OK. But you didn't have any fun, and you didn't get it (either one) to glisten! So you just succeeded in supplying some coffee to the second recipient, no more.

If you feel for these girls, and you apparently feel for the first, you've got to get a more fun / daring / confident attitude. There is no "should" here.

There's a reason a woman says "he swept me off my feet". There are some honest female comments in this thread, they have to admit this is right.

If you're willing to learn. If you're not willing to learn now, you can have much less of a social life in quantity and quality until decide you are willing to learn. There's some sort of a very hard block to overcome here, I had it too. I guess it's a "should" block.

Here's a concept. Maybe the guy was just trying to get rid of a stupid coffee card. I don't think he was hoping it'd be a form of foreplay.

Re: wtf is going on with women
I gave my coworker (female) a giftcard I got for free but I didn't tell her I got it for free. She took it, end of story.

well, I went to my office and I found a note with the giftcard saying she couldn't take it because she doesn't want to hurt my feelings or lead me on.

What do I do? It was a $10 giftcard for coffee.

So? You think he thought a 10 dollar gift card was going to get him into her pants?? No. If anything, he may have thought it would have broken the ice. He also gave the card to another coworker...does that mean that he wants to have sex with that woman? He asked the woman if she liked coffee, she said yes, he then gave her the card. Oh no! How dare he!

I think this whole thing is...

ridiculous.

Moral of the story. Never ever give anyone anything; they will see it as some evil gesture with an ulterior motive.

Well, OP learned that he was after some bitchy gold digger. So the present served its purpose.
"The world will soon wake up to the reality that everyone is broke and can collect nothing from the bankrupt, who are owed unlimited amounts by the insolvent, who are attempting to make late payments on a bank holiday in the wrong country, with an unacceptable currency, against defaulted collateral, of which nobody is sure who holds title."

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

I do like this women, but I never told her, I just wanted to be nice. It seems that whenever you do something nice for a women, they take it the wrong way.

What should I do? Should I confront her about it, or just keep the card?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 4658130


It means she knows youre interested and she's making it clear that she's not.

Hopefully in the rest of the 9 pages of this thread, someone helped you figure that out.


You need to try to be more alpha and less beta, if you can figure out what that means and put it to practice. Just from your two posts here, I can smell beta beta beta. Women dont like beta males. Thats prob at least partially why she rejected you in the first place.

Re: wtf is going on with women
I used to work fo a very wealthy guy in the financial buz. One year, profits were so high, he gifted me the maximun amount he could without any tax implications, it worked out to be over 12k, and the guy was a good family man that new how to thank the people who worked hard for him. This gift was not from company money, not a bonus, it was from his own money, out of his estate.

Some men are very generous.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3114018


swallowed did ya..
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33337354


No, I didnt even have to do any sexual favors, I was just so good at my job, he wanted to thank me. I was 31 at the time and it seemed like a ton of money, and was great to not have to pay taxes. I put it right in my savings. That same year at bonus time in the spring, I received a 57k bonus made up of cash and stock options - that was a nice bonus to my already generous salary. I have always managed to work for some great people in in the venture cap/private equity areas that basically gave money away to the worker bees that made the company operate seemlessly.

Now that I dont have to work, i realize how good I had it, but how hard I worked. Its great to look back and reflect, but I dont miss the 40 hour work week one bit, my job has a stat at home mom/wife is way better, even though I make less money. I am blessed to have a man that makes enough to take care of his family on one paycheck, and we live like kings and queens.

The only time I ever swallow is for my husband, sorry to dissapoint your theory.

Oh my gosh. You gave a cheap, re-gifted $10 coffee card to another woman at work?

I am shocked, actually, no I am not shocked.

You are funny.

Re: wtf is going on with women
So have we solved the battle of the sexes yet?

Yeah, OP has to be more alpha. As I said, he supplied coffee. That isn't the right role if he wants to "get somewhere" with her. There's nothing wrong with wanting to "get somewhere" or with achieving it, but this won't get it done.

Good luck OP, you have to break some habits that you think are a part of your personality. But try it and it will be fun!

This is probably what he hoped for, and it doesn't seem like too much to ask does it?

You probably have a lot of male friends, with a non-hostile attitude like that. Shocking!

In school all my friends were guys, and I grew up with brothers. If people would just treat others the way they wan't to be treated. Why hurt others for love shown?
