Dating: Do we still need the chase?

You can predict how some conversations about love and sex will unfold among a group of men and women. Not unlike the discussions we have on the Misadventures in Atlanta blog, you realize how differently men and women think.

I think that seeing different perspectives can be quite enlightening though! Some of the best revelations I’ve had about men have come from talking to men about men.

I remember a group of us were having dinner to celebrate one of our friend’s birthday. That evening turned into what we called The Great Chase Debate of 2010 because we ended up having a heated debate about chasing and pursuing someone you are interested in. I was surprised to hear the women say men in Atlanta don’t pursue them.

A few of the men admitted that they really don’t “chase” women all that much. One of the guys even said that a lot of women in Atlanta make it super easy for them em> not to chase.

Interestingly enough, the argument got most heated when we debated whether “modern day” dating scene even had a need for pursuing a chase. How often do you see men persistent about getting a woman to go out with them?

Do women still want to play hard to get? Are men interested in chasing and pursuing women?

What do you guys think? Has the way men pursue women changed all that much?

SexyCool – 21 days? Ut uh, I’m too lazy. If I can do maybe 3 days a week I’m good. I don’t think you can tell too much by looking at me but all the clothes I had to buy when I lost are feeling snuggly…no can do. I wish I had the stamina and discipline to go straight through. I actually walked to Publix late because I kept putting it off.

Leggs – Girl, I’ll pass out on the first flight…LOL I’ve actually done the steps a time or two. My only hesitency there is that I have muscular calves (ran track) and I REALLY don’t want them any bigger. I mean I don’t have dude looking legs just don’t want them too big. LOL

PR – I don’t want to gain that weight back but I really don’t concentrate too much on pounds. I like to just “look nice”…not really concerned too much about pounds…except the ones I lost.
