Women Think Differently To Men When Out To Score

Talking to a single, attractive, female friend recently, she said if she went into a bar or club the first thing she'd look at would be the other women. This was a surprise to me as she's 100% straight, but she explained that most women do that to check-out the competition before checking-out the men. She assumed straight men would check out other men first, and was surprised when I told her that a straight man wouldn't even THINK of checking out the men. She asked me about gay men, and whether they would look at an attractive man as competiton or talent. Obviously it's the latter, so gay men think like straight men in one aspect at least: they are thinking of scoring and not of the competition.
I've asked a few other straight women who they look at first, and they ALL said they'd check-out the other women first, although they'd follow-up differently: the attractive girl said she would stand beside the best looking girl and intimidate her. The less attractive girls said they'd stand at the far end of the bar.
I don't mean this in a demeaning way, I'm just curious, but are women more insecure than men when out to score?

No, they're just more insecure in general.

oh please.

that's the biggest line of bull i've ever heard.

in my experiences, straight men are more predatorial than gay men.

just look at the number of striped shirts, or those stupid "frat tucks" people do. they had to notice it somewhere.

Go into any straight bar and watch the guys come in and who they look at first. It's ALWAYS the girls. . . any guy that does differently is either bi or gay

All bars have women.

Ok. . . for the older guys I should have put "AFTER the beer, the first thing they look at". . .

I got so sick of seeing those motel curtain-looking striped shirts that I started wearing anything BUT that.

That said, I think straight men do check out the other guys too to a certain extent. You need to know what you are up against when you get there. In short, I don't buy this theory.

I always (probably subconsciously) assess the competition. Obviously i'm not the best judge of an what makes a man attractive but it can't hinder my chances. I think a lot of men would be lying if they say they didn't do the same. It's stupid not to really.

that's a line of crap. i'm straight as an arrow, but it doesn't mean i won't take a look at which guys are nicely dressed and work out and all. it's competition. if i notice another guy checking out a girl that i'm looking at as well, i'm moving in quick to step up my odds. i'm not going to wait around until i'm drunk to build up the courage. does it make me gay because i looked at the other guys in the bar to see what i'm up against? no. it makes me a competitive, normal guy. it doesn't matter if it's two predators checking out the same small animal or two guys in a bar. it's typical social behavior to feel the need to be on top of the food chain.

I'm talking about who you guys look at FIRST when you go into a bar. . . any guy who scans the guys first doesn't have girls on his mind!
And when you see a guy who you assess to be better looking than you, would you stand beside him to intimidate him or flee to the other end of the bar?
As a gay man I'd do neither. I'd stand my ground, hope for the best and wait for the right moment, if it came.
Are you guys men or just big girls?

this is completely stupid. the first thing people do is to look at and see who they know. that's both guys and girls. then they go on the prowl. and then they observe out and abuot who is there. reply #7 is right on target.

a frat tuck is when you take a shirt and tuck it in only right where you button or zip your fly and let the rest of it dangle out around your waist.

Wasn't TALKING about going out to see mates or just for a pint. . . like the thread heading says: OUT TO SCORE: ie PICK UP, or has that gone out the the window in politically correct US?

As a loyal married man with a beautiful wife, I may be a bit out of practise, but from memory, I would always look at the girls first... to be honest, I don't think I ever scanned the guys to see what the level of competition was. Not saying though that I wouldn't at a later stage notice some guy, mainly if he appeared to be moving in on a girl who had caught my eye. That's just me though!

Women are brutal on themselves and each other. When women dress for the night out, they aren't dressing for us. They are dressing to make the other women look bad.
When I'm out with my wife we check out the women together. My criteria is very simple. She weighs less than me, she's breathing, and she's willing to have sex with me. My wife is looking for some kind of a super model instead. Oh that one had crows feet, or the blonde was wearing too much makeup. I don't like the way her eyes were. Crazy nitpicking things. I will admit though, she does get the hot ones. I don't mind being her wingman.


If you're a guy, you say man I hope I can pick a chick up and get lucky tonight.
If you're a girl, you say I'll decide who gets lucky tonight.
They check out the other women first so they can decide where they stand in the pecking order.

Another thing so far not mentioned is that many HOT women seem to get their rocks off by getting all dolled up, going to a bar or club, looking for UGLY men who they know will be drooling when she walks by, only to scowl at him and ask "WTF are YOU looking at asshole?"

These women have no other objective in mind.
