Ummm who opens with 'hi' anymore?

"Not gonna waste a lot of you girls' time, but do you think it's still ok for a man to hold the door open for a woman... or does that cut into your independence?"

It's his fault.  Saying "Hi" triggers a defense mode. A "what does this guy want form me?" feeling. 

I don't know...if I make it to the door first and hold it open for you, are you going to walk through it and thank me?  Its more about equality than it is independence.

If someone says "hi" to me, I'll return the greeting...but it doesn't mean I'm going to do more than that.

I was with a friend the other day and a guy spoke to her saying, " hi how are you today?"  She wasn't interested and barely spoke. She just said hi and turned away. I thought he was just being friendly, but she assumed he was trying to get her number or something. I actually thought she was a little rude. When someone of the opposite sex smiles and says hi, do you think they are just being friendly or do you assume they are hitting on you?

Thats why I don't talk to people until they talk to me first. People don't appreciate kindness and they just throw it away like trash. People who treat kindness like that don't deserve it in the first place.

Some poeple are not very socialable. Even if she was intrested maybe she was caught off guard and got nervous and shy. Happens to alot of people.

I'm generally friendly back. Even if I'm not interested, I just politely make sure I'm not leading anyone on.

To be perfectly honest I am the exact same way but with good reason. I have been hit on, chased, and stalked. I just do not take chances any more.

Most of the time people do say hi just to be friendly. I know I do. You never know what a person is going through. Just a friendly hi could turn their day around.

Well I start out thinking they are just being friendly but then I come to find out that they really are hitting on me...but take it as being just friendly

If she was alone and not in the middle of another conversation, then he may have just been being friendly.  since she was talking to you, he was being rude for interrupting!
