God's twisted sense of humour

I am a cis-gendered hetro man in his late-40s. What follows is a full list of times I have been hit on (which I define as showing overt attention with the expressed intent of a romantic or sexual relationship or encounter) in my life. From women: June 2019: At a party, a recently divorced co-worker attempted to negotiate a sexual relationship (her criteria being single men with a pulse). May 2018: A friend-of-a-friend (who was in a longterm long-distance relationship) told me she found me sexy and wanted a FWB situation (without the F). Feb 2017: A woman I met on a hike told me that she was interested in a casual sexual relationship with me. Oct 2016: A drunk co-worker offered to give me a blowjob. Apr 1995: Started a relationship with a woman who initiated things. From men: Way too numerous to mention. On the scale of hundreds of times. Most recently a week ago at a friend's Thanksgiving party. It seems that, with a few exceptions, I really only appeal to gay men. If only God had made me gay.

Who the heck keeps a record of instances, let alone the month + year from decades ago, when they've been hit on? IMO if you were gay, you would be just as whiney.

Let me, too, hit on you with a tip: stop acting so sexy.

Same here, except I can't even get any offers from any woman

To make sense of your findings, consider this data of mine:
Number of times I have been approached by dogs: thousands
Number of times I have been approached by fire hydrants: zero

Maybe you are expecting something to happen which doesn't. And won't.

Your stats are better than mine. I've lost count of the number of times I've been hit on by cougars and gay men. And I've also lost count of the number of women in my desired age group (twenties and thirties) who have expressed disinterest or outright scorn for me, even if I didn't approach them.

OP here. I believe we have a winner. You are correct: women rarely hit on men. They like to be chased. But then they get older and the chasing dies off. Because men give up on chasing - it doesn't get them anywhere. If only we had equity between the genders...

Yes that's right, it's totally normal to hang about making not an iota of effort and then blame others for your resulting "lack of success." Maybe it's not just others who should take a risk every now and then??

(Also many lulz for the idea that when this happens, folks will be explicit about what they are wanting. That's another risk. Stop expecting the other person to do all the risk taking. There's no such way as a risk-free road to love).
