I was having a lunch with some friends and this topic came up. Is it ok for a woman to pursue a man. My first response is that it goes against evolution for a woman to pursue a man. Men are the hunters right? Well my are no longer out in the fields and many are working now in office jobs where woman make equal and sometimes even more then men. So the times are much different. So upon further reflection I think its fine for women to approach men and initiate contact. The part that becomes problematic is when a women pursues a man and he is “just not that in to her” but she does pick up on the clues. The reason that she does not get the clues is that women do not have much practice in this area. As a male one learns to deal with a lot of rejection from women and brushes it off as not big deal. Women do not have as much experience dealing with rejection in the pursuing phase and often don’t get the hint and get quite angry when a man is not interested.
