I agree that it’s stupid, but I dunno that I’d call it “women’s logic”……

“Women asking men on first dates can be taken as aggressive, desperate, and masculine. At the very least, it can signify a loss of power. So I wouldn’t recommend that you ever utter the words, “Would you like to go out with me?” to any men.

“You know you don’t have to wait to ask out that cutie in your chemistry class, but the tale becomes much more romantic when he’s the one doin’ the dirty work, right?”

“To snag a man, let him do the chasing.”

“….if you are looking for a man, letting him make the first move instead of being a control freak and making the move for him, might be the first way you can tell if he is going to be man enough for you in the first place.”

“I don’t care how much you like a guy- do not chase him down for conversation, a date, or anything. It’s in a man’s DNA to pursue a woman. I’m not saying you should play games or never call him. But you should let him 1) express interest first and 2) contact you first. Let him take the lead, let him initiate the contact, and him be the man.”

“Women should never, ever pursue a man.”

“Guys are biologically built to chase. Let him do it, and only give your interest and time to the ones who do.”

“When you chase a man, you don’t give him the chance to show you how he really feels about you.”

“I feel a deep embarrassment for these women and more than a bit of annoyance that they shame the rest of our gender with such un-ladylike behavior.”

“Men by nature are hunters and if a lady is the one doing the chasing it can sometimes spoil the thrill of the chase.”

Dating experts are morons. I suppose one could make the case that the people who heed their advice are also morons, but I digress. One doesn’t have to go out in search of this lame ass kind of advice, it’s just kind of there. Women are told from a very young age about the things that are expected of them (snagging a man, popping out his babies, and raising his babies, in that order) and all the ways in which to go about obtaining and achieving these things. Not chasing after men is just one of them. So what say we all stop shaming women for believing all the dumb shit we’re told. Sound like a plan? Yeah, I thought so.

And girlz, don’t believe the hype. There’s not need to sit passively by and hope that someone else makes stuff happen for you. If you’re interested in a guy, don’t just sit around aiming your breasts in his direction and staring holes through his body cavity in the hopes that he’ll notice you and mistake you for something other than a complete lunatic. Ask him out already! Then ask out every other guy who happens into your peripheral space, then do the same thing tomorrow, and the next day, and then the day after that, and the day after that. With any luck, you’ll be rejected by about two-thirds of them, develop a thick skin, and learn that it ain’t the end of the world if people think you’re a weirdo unattractive freak that they wouldn’t get caught dead with! Seriously. Rejection builds character. It’ll also give the guys a well-deserved break, doncha think? Yeah, I thought so.
