Have you ever wondered why women seem naturally unfriendly?

This is a old question that is addressed often. I love getting other perspectives of it. Women do not seem to like other women, while men can meet for the first time and be okay. I speak to women in the grocery store sometimes to see the reaction. Some snarl, roll their eyes, suck their teeth, don't speak, turn their head away and occasionally I get a smile or a hello back. On a scal from 1-5, with 5 being best. I give women a 1 at being friendly. Why are women this way?

  • I wonder this myself. Good question! I think women compete with one another and view each other as opponents more than men do. I don't know why this would be. I don't have a reason to compete with anyone but I seem to sense it sometimes in women. I'm just guessing here. I would love it if women were more easy going and easy to talk to.

  • Good question. Even just spending some time on CM you can see how catty and rude women can be. Also, with men, you can usually tell whether they like you or not. Women are more likely to pretend to like you, then gossip about you.

  • Maybe it has to do with the part of the country. Around here if I smile then I get a smile back, man or woman.

  • most women I think are just caught up in what they are doing. I dont pay attention to others at the store so that may be an excuse for some- others may just be plain flat un happy and dont want to smile or are jealous

  • oh, i am also skittish of other people bc i hate talking to people i dont know, male or female.

  • hmm, i rarely have this problem. usually i smile to everyone and especially if they speak to me first. i only get attitude from women who are jealous of me (so that probably answers your question..... some women act like that toward other women bc they are jealous). i would not say that most women i meet on a day to day basis are unfriendly.... they are either neutral or friendly

  • I guess angecil53, I partially agree with you. Men often times speak because they want to get in your pants.

  • Another thought...maybe it hormones. We get whacked out on hormones so much as women.

  • Have you ever looked at other animals and compared/contrast? Google it, almost any animal group too.

    Even THEIR "women" do not get along. LOL
