Set one&#039;s cap at (意指婦女誘引男人的追求)
Said of a woman who determines to gain the affections of a man.
It has been suggested that this phrase originates from the French nautical phrase &mettre le cap sur& - &to set a course for&. This relies entirely on the &cap& in the French phrase - apart from that there isn& any evidence to support it. None of the early citations of the expression in English indicate either a foreign or nautical source.
It is much more likely to be a straightforward reference to the setting of a woman&#039;s cap on her head. Women commonly wore caps of white linen or muslin in the 18th century. Any woman who was intent on attracting a man would certainly wear her best cap, probably ornamented with lace and ribbons, and set it at the most becoming angle.

其中have set: 現在完成式

set one's cap at後面接受格才可解釋成婦女誘引男人的追求
You will be setting your cap at him.
set your cap at him, him是受格.
first agers似乎不是受格...Source(s): 我+ 字典
