To be invulnerable means to be incapable of being wounded, hurt or damaged.
In the context of attracting a potential romantic interest, it's more than emotional vulnerability, however.
Mike Powis, crime reduction manager at Nottinghamshire Police, said: "This scheme proves that creative solutions can be some of the most effective." However The National Youth Agency blasted the idea and argued it would just move the problem somewhere else.
Peta Halls, development officer for the NYA, said: "Anything that aims to embarrass people out of an area is not on.
"I was a little bit dubious about the pink lights at first but it's done the trick.
We've got to think of our residents and we've got to live here at the end of the day." Marianne Down, of the Association, added: "There were large groups of young people hanging around in the underpasses drinking, which felt quite intimidating, but the pink lights have really made a difference.
As I was contemplating which light, I noticed a man standing beside me looking at the same lighting section. " He replied, "I'll try." I then asked, "Do you know what the difference is between these two lights? You saved me a lot of time trying to figure these out." While I noticed a wedding ring on his left hand and the goal is to find an available man, I got to practice being voluntarily vulnerable.
What men are turned off by is a woman's invulnerability.
If you're like a lot of independent and successful women, you may have bought into the myth that men are afraid or intimidated by this kind of woman when it comes to pursuing a romantic relationship.
If this is true, how then do we find an appropriate man to date?
I wondered what it meant to show one's vulnerability to a man? If a man is wired to protect, provide and procreate (the three Ps), how can he do two of the three, protect and provide, if he doesn't have the opportunity to do so?
To provide also includes, empathy, compassion and validation; in other words, it is not solely providing monetary items.
This meant I had to be willing to ask men for help or a favor.
