While not all attacrtive women are trying to attract men, a lot are. It's not necessarily their fault, they are should be careful. Don't poke the bear, so to speak.

Why can't men just be gentlemen, and women just be ladies? It wasn't simpler; male/female relations are always going to be complex. But it was healthier. Gentlemen do not harass women. Ladies do not take offense at gentlemen expressing polite appreciation. Manners are not archaic things; they form civilized society.
