Do you consider it acceptable in contemporary society for a girl to make the first move in terms of asking a guy out or approaching him first?

My take on this is that it's acceptable, but I just wish more women were aware of it and actually took the initiative.

  • I'm a little bit old fashioned haha, so I think it's the guy who should ask out first or else he's not interested in you. I also have read into a lot of psychological behavior of men to just know that it's a biological thing for a male to make the first move first, and if he doesn't he isn't interested. Reading those researches and articles about it made me kind of get this old-fashioned view..

  • Asking out and approaching are different in my mind. I believe that approaching first is fine. I don't think girls should ask a guy out.

    • Why exactly? Just curios

    • I'm traditional. I just feel lke that is a man's job. That's just how I feel, I really support traditional ways. It shows that he is brave and also that he is actually interested in the girl.

  • It's about damn time we do ! they're always doind all the work. I feel sorry for'em sometimes.

    • If it's acceptable, then why don't we have a greater quantity of females actively approaching or asking other men out? Why is it, for the vast majority of cases, the opposite. I live in a liberal area with an open minded population, by the way, and it's still quite the rarity; in many situations, it's unheard of and unacceptable...

    • Obviously because girls find it "awkward "

      If every1 could get rid of that norm... everything would b fine

    • If it's "obviously" awkward, then it isn't the socially conditioned norm which it should be in the year 2015, thus it's considered unacceptable and not the standard. Your response didn't get us anywhere...

  • its more than acceptable. sometimes, its necessary

  • Can't think of a reason why it'd be unacceptable.

    • I'd like to know too. We should ask the women.

    • Most women would say that it's acceptable, but I doubt most of them would be up to the task of actually taking action and doing it.

  • I'm the prize, so if she wants something, she'd better do the asking. Nothing about her is so special for me to go out of my way.
