Quote:It's a tough road when you think about it...how do I be a strong man without pushing women down.
Quote:That's not tough at all. It's easy to be a decent human being if you were brought up properly.
Sure it is...men are expected to be strong and sensitive at the same time. When is it acceptable to be one way or the other...whats too far and so on is a little grey these days and changes with the morals of the society you are within, or whatever movement has taken over and can destroy your life so they can make their point. But I know everything is black and white for you.
It should be easy...but common sense doesn't always prevail now.
Quote:How do I essentially hunt and gather them without treating them like a nonperson and only an object to be used.
Quote:You hunt and gather women? No wonder you're having a difficult time with this.
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.
Quote:Doing this the right way...is not easy.
Quote:It is if you're doing it right.
I know your picking a fight and being snarky (else you would have said more or supplied something of use)...but no it isn't. I see good guys struggling with it every day.
Some things are simple...or should be.
Simple like..."I like you, can we go out?"
Answer is yes or no.
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.
Oh and do feel free to continue to be snarky and insulting...I expect nothing less from you at this point.
I am still a little confused about your initial post. The second and third parts seem pretty snark with the gathering comments and pushing women down. I assume it is meant sarcastic.
It is not hard to ask somebody out. Unless one does it in a very awkward way. It is a complicated social situation though and it depends on the two people in the proposition in the first place. Generally, if you have something of a friendship or at least know each other, somebody will probably go on a date with you more times than not.
Not always but much of the time. Does not promise a second date or anything more than that though.
