Here is a link to a question that was asked earlier today.
In it a majority of women state they are in or would prefer a relationship to start out as friends.
After seeing countless questions on here where a woman instead of asking a guy out tries to becoming friends instead. In the hopes that being around and giving off clues will spark him to ask her out.
Now how many women feel that a man has pretended to be a friend only to try to work into a relationship. Horrible isn't it.
Now ask how many of these guys are confused. His last girlfriend may have used this approach, now he has a woman who is becoming his friend , only to discover after confessing his feelings that she is appalled. Friends means friends.
Now if you want to be friends first instead of dating, you shouldn't be shocked when a friend you are not interested in asks you out.
I'm not saying this is only a one way street. But if you want to be friends before a relationship begins than you should expect to have a few male friends other than the one you like ask you out in the process.
This is partly why I think opposite sex friendships don't work.
Thoughts? I'm sure this will be a heated topic but it seems to me to be part of the problem.

Honestly, women rarely know what the fuck they want. The bottom line is that if a girl is attracted to you, you can pretty much do whatever you want. If you play the friend game, she'll bide the time till you make your move. If you start out asking her out, she'll go out with you.
That's why it's still a good tactic for guys to not be friends with girls they want to date. Then they can figure out sooner if the girl's into him or not and move on if she isn't.1
