When a guy likes a girl and flirts with her and knows how to work her just to sleep with her.

Aha, but what about convincing your boss to give you a promotion instead of someone else?

Why is reading a mind so different from reading body language?
Personally, I go for the Do Unto Others thing. If I would hate it, and have not been provoked, I would probably not do it to someone else.

What if your rival is better qualified, or has seniority?

If you need a job then do it. Its competition, its what makes the economy grow.

Why is it ok for competition, but not mating?

Here's some food for thought.

What makes one thing "right" but another "wrong?" Is it not all just an interpretation of an individual's moral values? And if you say that something is wrong, and that others aren't supposed to do it, aren't you just forcing your moral values on the other person? Does anyone really have that right? Should we conform to the majority, or let the most easily upset make up our minds for us, to prevent anyone from getting upset?
