Many would just go along with it hoping for an easy score.
I often agree with you when it comes to the political landscape discourses but if men and women truly are as shallow as you just described them then I've lost all hope...
You see, I am old fashioned or maybe i simply believe in having good manners because that's how I was raised but I also believe that deep inside men and women are more alike than you think; it boils down to looking for happiness and to dealing with our own insecurities, because we all have them.
If two people go on a date then there's an interest there of some kind, maybe it's on a deeper level or maybe it's not but to worry about who asked whom out is just silly, at least in my view it is.
Love is complicated enough, if it feels right "take a chance on me/her/him" (who sang that? ;) because you never know what the future might bring.
The pic is totally off the subject, just cute lol
I know a few of them on this forum. Otherwise why do you think we have so many pro gays posters here. (that wasn't very liberal, sorry).
I'm slightly confused about the pro gay comment. Never understood homophobes, I really don't get it. In my view the more guys are gay the less competition for me. Of course, if all women were to become lesbians I'd be very sad. ...unless they'd let me join in... LOL
Just kidding, sort of. My main point was that I don't understand why some guys won't go out with girls who ask them out (if they're single and interested that is), nor do I understand why some ladies won't bring themselves to ask the guys they like out for dinner or something similar. So very passé in my opinion.
