How important is pursuit?

I’ve been operating under the notion that if a man is interested, he will call. Apparently, this is not true. Apparently, men are just as scared, too. I’ve been told this by several men, one being my former dating coach. Apparently if you want something to happen, you have to make it happen, because waiting to be pursued just creates a lot of downtime and nailbiting. If gently laying hints that you’re interested doesn’t work, try something new. To quote the presenter in the B2B marketing seminar I’m sitting in, if you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got. WORD.

  1. I didn’t realize men were terrified of rejection…it’s like…a REALLY BIG DEAL.

    They’re probably worse than women in that department.

  2. Both men and women should go after what we want.

    If a guy likes you he won’t be turned off that you called, he’ll be relieved and happy and stoked to hear from you.

    That way you know right away if he’s into you rather than waiting the stupid, Swingers-imposed three days for him to call you.

    Then again, if the guy is too afraid to just pick up the phone and make the first move, who’d want to be paired with someone so immature? Just sayin’ I’d want a man who is confident enough to go after what he wants.

    Liking your blog lately! I need to email you to catch up here soon!

    Jessica – You are so right. If only men knew that we ARE A BIG DEAL. 🙂

    Carrie – Seriously. I really do want to be with someone who isn’t afraid. But then, if I’m afraid, that’s a lot to hold someone to. Double standard and all. Maybe I will just start stalking people and see how that goes. Think it will work?
