Earlier this week, we talked about whether or not women should date more like men. Ladies, if you ever wonder what men go through on the dating scene, try approaching a perfect stranger.
In my experience, approaching a man can be exciting, terrifying, and empowering (assuming he doesn’t find you repulsive or crazy) – all at once. I don’t do it often enough, but I really should!
The men I know are genuinely surprised and happy to have a woman approach them – compliment them. Oh, asking when you can see him again? Apparently, it’s one of those ego stroking things that some men really enjoy. A lot. Not unlike how women feel when we get asked out!
Do you think living in the south, women are less inclined to approach a man? Friends in other cities say that women don’t have much apprehension about it like us “girls raised in the south” and maybe this is an obstacle in dating.
When a woman approaches a man, does it really seem desperate? Does it depend on how she delivers her “opening line” or how she carries herself?
Guys, when was the last time a woman approached you? What was your first impression? Do you generally like getting approached by women?
Do you think it is better when a woman breaks the ice and then you take it from there?
Ladies, what is your biggest beef with approaching a man? What message do you think it sends to the guy?
