I understand the Yorkshire Ripper's manner was very nice in public, as was Fred West's . . .

I was in a public place, I felt safe, his manner was very nice.  I didn't feel threatened.

If he'd followed me off the bus that would have changed everything.

I have been followed off a tube train late at night (when I was in my teens) and that was terrifying.

Double standards?

Isn't it a far more risky situation?  How do you know a complete stranger is safe?  You don't,  and if he sees your friendliness as a come-on it's too late when he's followed you off the bus . . .

A few weeks ago a female member posted that whilst on a bus, a man, a complete stranger to her, had told her she was a very attractive woman.  Some posters, including at least one who has posted here reviling the man in the life and his ilk, seemed to think that was great . . .

I think that's different from a sleazy comment alone in a lift at work by the boss, or whoever he was.

I've been chatted up on buses and it made me laugh.  A young man asked me if I was 'single' and I asked him how old he was - 38 he said.  I said I'm old enough to be your mother, I don't mind he said.  It cheered me up actually.

Exactly!

50 years ago perhaps although even then I think most women were more than capable or dealing with such a low-key situation.

I doubt many modern 20 year old women would turn a hair and in fact, would probably respond with the sort of put-down that would make the man wish he'd kept quiet!

I don't think that  when I was 20 years old that I would have regarded being told by a man when alone in a lift with him that I filled out my jeans well,  as rather flattering.

I can't  imagine any decent man saying that to a woman in a lift.  That would have scared me.

Alone in a lift and a sleazy comment made I would imagine would frighten some young women.

I don't think it would frighten too many either!
