This really hasn't been an issue for me... Outside of one incident in middle school. I'll never forget what happened; the teacher was assigning new seats that day. My name was among the first called, and I was placed in the back. This girl I hadn't previously met was placed next to me. I decided to give a friendly "Hi" to break the ice--there was nothing suggestive about my delivery either--and, without missing a beat, she hits me with this: "You're ugly." I literally recoiled, completely taken aback. "Who would say that to someone so casually?" I wondered. Needless to say, I didn't make any further effort to get to know her that day; however, as time passed I believe she realized that she had misread my intention, and we actually became friends.

Happens quite often. I'm just a good guy, and opening a door for someone is just something helpful to do.

Oh I believe it, some of his viewpoints would have saved me so much hassle growing up had I had the chance to look at things from his perspective.

I am who I am, I probably won't dial down for no one. I don't care if my kindness is mistaken for flirting because I'm okay with hurting people's feelings too.

I don't feel the need to kiss anyone's ass to be civil. And I don't confuse your ulterior motives with flirtation neither.

Yeaah all the time like when I'm chatting with someone who's really onto me and calling me up all the time I just don't have the heart to tell him stop. So I unintentionally I guess, lead him on and keep dropping subtle hints until he finally gets bored and drops me himself :-/

Yeeeeeep. And boy is it awkward.

I've kind of just started taking the blunt approach when I'm actually flirting, and letting others know that if I'm not being clear about it then there's a 99.9% chance that I'm not flirting and just trying to be nice.

I wouldn't say that it's a case of kindness being dead in society though, more likely it's just people looking too deeply into something that's not there.

Subtlety is an art and it comes with it's drawbacks, unfortunately

I make it simple, I don't flirt and I don't date, so it's if they think I'm flirting with them when I'm actually just doing a good deed, it's all on them.

Well i don't think that kindness has the same message for men and woman. When a woman is nice to a guy then the guy think's that maybe she is interested of course this is not the same with guys. When a guy is nice to a girl it can mean two things that he is interested or that maybe he just a nice guy. Then again there are many other thing that can go into this topic but i feel too lazy to type that all down but these are my two cent's on the matter PS Watch snafu(it's a anime) if you would like to go a bit deeper on the topic, show's you the world from a loner such as myself and how he perceives kindness.
