I've long suspected that most people—yes, people—want to be hit on most of the time, but only by people they would consider attractive (multiple dimensions here) and really don't want it from people they don't.
In general, men are going to be open to and happy about getting hit on by more women than vice-versa. Both will tend to overgeneralize their own wants and experiences, and this mismatch creates insane amounts of friction.
If you think this is so obvious that it wouldn't require careful study to suss out and confirm, you're at the tip of the spike of the Dunning-Kruger curve.
