Many times I have walked OFF an elevator when I realize I will be alone in it with a man I don't know.

Better safe than sorry.

Simple self-preservation instincts.

I have thought about it, and I can see where she is coming from. Obviously the first thing out of your lips to a woman who doesn't know you shouldn't be to invite her to your room; that's creepy. Since it was very late, the most he should have done was compliment her on her presentation then said goodnight. I'm surprised Dawkins doesn't realize that.

If he really wanted to discuss the presentation, he should have asked if she had time in the morning for coffee. . . .traded business cards whatever. . .

Exactly. Even if he wanted to get to know her better, that would be the appropriate approach. What woman would be receptive to a complete stranger inviting her to his room in the middle of the night? How can Dawkins be so clueless?

Thanks for posting this.

There were 17 comments at the link, and there are 350 now. I read the 17, I won't even attempt any more. Clearly Dawkins is not alone in not 'getting it'. The fact that Phil, and now you, posted it demonstrates that you do get it.

I like Rebecca Watson. We have a lot in common.
