May Allah swt guide them, Ameen.
Alhamdulillah, Allah has guided some to stay away from that and we should be thankful to Allah for that.
But some hijabis may not know/understand why it is not advised.
And there are some despite having perfect knowledge about rules on modesty and the reasons may still find it a big struggle to give up/stay away from.
Its a battle for some whilst for us its easy to stay away from.
May Allah swt guide us all closer to Him, Ameen.

LAst thing you want is someone you work with to think you may like them in romantic way and they think they may have a chance when you are really not interested at all and would never merry them in million years.
Its not just down to muslim men to lower their gaze...its also down to muslim women to make it clear that they don't play that game...hijab on the head alone is not enough to do that. Its about character. You can be nice and have strict character and everyone will know that you don't get involved with men at school or work. Its about the character and reputation you hold in the surrounding you work in.
