Quote:Sure it is...men are expected to be strong and sensitive at the same time.
Nothing mutually exclusive there.
Quote:But I know everything is black and white for you.
On the contrary, I'm always the one arguing for shades of gray.
Some typos in there on my part. How do you initiate your intentions and wish to be with someone without be offensive in todays world? It's not easy. Many women still want to be courted. Some very loud ones are very offended and feel harassed when approached by a man they have no interest in, instead of just saying no thank you. It's getting to the point where you need lawyers to interact.
You hunt and gather women? No wonder you're having a difficult time with this.
Quote:How do I essentially hunt and gather them without treating them like a nonperson and only an object to be used.
Nah, it's not that bad. You just have to pick up social cues or if you're not sure, you get to know the person better before asking her out. Or maybe I've just never had trouble with women.
Quote:I see good guys struggling with it every day.
Some guys have always struggled with starting relationships with women. That's nothing new. Books, movies, songs have dealt with this subject since there have been books, movies, and songs.
Quote:But the reality of it is no longer always so. These days if the person you asked just felt weird about it....your a garbage person...if you have a higher social standing or business standing...you abusing your power, and so on.
People you ask out don't feel weird about it if you don't ask them out in a weird way. And yeah, if you're someone's boss, you shouldn't be asking out your subordinates, and if you're a teacher, you shouldn't be asking out your students. There are exceptions to every rule, but in general, you're asking for trouble if you break this one.
Quote:Oh and do feel free to continue to be snarky and insulting...I expect nothing less from you at this point.
I was just poking fun at you because you wrote you hunt and gather women. Relax.
