More often than not, guys interpret even friendly cues, such as a subtle smile from a gal, as a sexual come-on, and a new study discovers why: Guys are clueless.More precisely, they are somewhat oblivious to the emotional subtleties of non-verbal cues, according to a new study of college students.

So ladies trying to brush off a guy at work or the gym may need to be, uh, more direct.Men in the study also had more trouble than women distinguishing between sadness and rejection."Young men just find it difficult to tell the difference between women who are being friendly and women who are interested in something more," said lead researcher Coreen Farris of Indiana University's Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences.This "lost in translation" phenomenon plays out in the real world, with about 70 percent of college women reporting an experience in which a guy mistook her friendliness for a sexual come-on, Farris said.Overall, women categorized more images correctly than men did.

When it came to friendly gestures, men were more likely than women to interpret these to mean sexual interest.Some might think the results come down to "boys being boys," and so even the slightest female interest sparks sexual fantasy.But the study, to be detailed in the April issue of the journal , also found that it goes both ways for guys — they mistake females' sexual signals as friendly ones.The students viewed images of women on a computer screen and had to categorize each as friendly, sexually interested, sad or rejecting.Each student reported on 280 photographs, which had been sorted previously into one of the categories based on surveys completed by different groups of students.For instance, the college guys sometimes mistook sexual advances as pal-like gestures.
