This comment was by Becca on the post Are Men at a Disadvantage in Modern Dating? by Cristian Pucheta
What do men think of women who ask them out? I am really curious about that. I guess I assume that men view women who are willing to ask a man out as too assertive, a bit scary or potentially. When I want them to see me as nice and normal.
I could probably find a date by taking the initiative, but would the man just think I’m looking for sex? Would he consider me potential “girlfriend material”? Or would he think I was a little odd or weird?
I think that’s my biggest fear …. being seen as weird! Or desperate.
Looking back at my life, there were men I liked who never seemed to notice me even if I flirted with them. I assumed they weren’t interested. Is that a fair assumption?
I think a lot of women send signals to men they like, but the men aren’t receiving. Yet, it is hard to be bold enough to ask a man on a date if you have to be so completely obvious that it makes you seem like a weirdo,
