… Or are they? There are some women who see what they want and they go right after it, making sure that they get it. Other women, are more apprehensive about approaching men they’re interested in. There are so many people who would be rich, if they got a dollar for every time they referred to a woman as “thirsty”. That just makes some women even more reluctant about approaching men.
The male and female stereotypes of attraction and seduction are so ingrained in society, we can easily make jokes about them and everyone gets it. In other words, it’s funny because it’s true. The guys are always the aggressors and do most of the pursuing, especially in a public place. Women are always bombarded with advances by men who are too forward, or end up “taking a chance” on a stranger that was less weird than her other options.
But neither of the sexes really have it that easy. Guys can be rude and abrasive and their friends won’t care. Guys can have emotionless sexcapades without being worried about getting their hearts broken. But women do get all the attention. And, of course, we can dance with our friends pretty much anywhere and still look hot.
Personally, I used to feel that if a guy is interested, he’ll make it known and there’s no need for the woman to approach him. We all know, though, that that’s not always the case and why should men have to put in all of the work? Sometimes, a bit of a “go getter” attitude will get you just what you want. So what do you think? Should women be more aggressive? Do you like it when a woman approaches you? Does it turn you off? Are you afraid to approach men? Why? Let’s talk!
