In college the guy who lived across the hall from me told me he was once turned down ten times in a row when he asked women to dance at a local nightclub.
He was invisible to women until he intruded into their consciousness.
The same with another guy I knew in college, who told me he often spent the weekend sitting on his bed watching TV.
Sometimes I got the impression some women would not have minded if these guys died. That way they would not impinged on their consciousness.
Now of course when women hit the Wall and become invisible, that's a different story. To them.
