I suspect that after the wekend, as people return to their computers, you will hear from quite a few women who recognizethat men can be pretty weird, too. The fact is PEOPLE can be weird or sensible, nice or nasty ; only when we see ourselves as belonging in one camp of Us versus Them, do we persuade ourselves that it's THEm who are weird, nasty, or whatever. I'd guess hat you have rarely or never tried dating men, or perhaps you'd have found that they can also be weird about it !
Some of what you're describing is bad manners. But some of it, in the choice to allow oneself to continue to be shaped by previous bad experiences, seems to have become socially sanctioned among women but frowned upon when men do it.

Acting like a jerk won't help, and may even attract more jerks
