    You're going to have to make do with a mental image I'm afraid. Taking photos of people against their knowledge or consent and posting them on the Internet would be beyond harassment, not sure what that would be classed as...
    Whatever...

    In my experience of Internet forums, it's normally the ones who claim that they are subject to abuse on the forums - they are the ones who think that when they started it, it was all just a joke and no one understands their sense of humour. If they don't like abrasive, they shouldn't be abrasive. This is not like sexual harassment where a man sees a woman in a revealing dress and claims she is "asking for it". This is people writing words. Others read those words and react to them. Inflammatory words, whether meant in jest or not, may create responses that the poster didn't mean or didn't want. But if a poster puts up those words, then they have to be prepared to accept the responses they get. If a poster isn't prepared for that, if they think they deserve special treatment, then an anonymous Internet forum is not a good place for them to be.
    You base your assumptions on experience. That's a reasonable approach as long as you recognise there are exceptions to the general rule.

    I don't wish to air any grievances on this thread. It's intended purpose is stated in the OP and we've already been around the buoy many times. I wouldn't want to be seen to be wasting anyone's time.

    On another forum two of my best friends are long standing members who had a spat with me when I first joined.

    Despite the fact I'm attracted to your foxy avatar, I see you as potential 'friend' material. If you follow my advice and put a claim in then you might even qualify as a 'friend with benefits'.

    Then if I see her in the kitchen and no one else is around she'll chat to me...

    Why?!!?
    She's saying 'No', but she means 'Yes'...

    I think I am supposed to persist but at the same time I don't want to 'chase' her. Either that or she's just stringing me along for validation. Either way, I enjoy talking to her and all the other women in the office.

    I love women... a lot... Being able to express that in a direct, matter of fact, non-creepy, non-threatening way without any need to do something about it is something I aspire to do to more of. Kind of like walking through a flower garden and appreciating the flowers without needing to pick any of them and 'have' them.

    IMO being creepy is an inability to directly communicate your intentions and pretend you're not interested when it's obvious you are. Trying to get something through some form of trickery and deception or some kind of ' transaction'.

    Work is a tricky one as is any situation where the attractive women want to be noticed but not hit on.
    She's messing with your head mate. Don't touch with Old Greg's, never mind your own.
