I honestly highly doubt it. I think the only difference would be instead of being rejected just as often they also would have to deal with constantly being overlooked for the same boys who already normally get the girls. ultimately, only a select few shy guys would benefit from it, as they already do.
yes, they would have better luck if women did approach more
Nope. Even if women did approach men, it does not mean that they will seek out the whiners/complainers. That's an erroneous thought process.
"I'm not getting women because every time I approach, they reject me. So they should come to me."
If they rejected you when YOU approached, what makes you think that plenty of women will approach you if more women were to be the "hunter"? It's just another rejection that I think many of them will face... and complain about.
"no, they still wouldn't have much luck with women" Well unless women chose to stay in their own league's dating wise, right? Because all of the average looking dudes of the world would benefit from this and so would the hot guys. But we'll know how that the "uglies" of the world would fair, right? They'd be approached maybe once a year and I feel that I'm being generous with that.
I think a lot of people who complain have a legitimate grievance. It wouldn't help me, but I think there are some regular guys out there who would probably get approached every now and then if girls did so more often.
I've been approached by women. Women have flirted with me and tried to get closer to me. Women definitely approach. I just think some people don't like that men or women don't approach them specifically.
It doesn't matter. People in general are selfish judgmental beings. Guys only ask the hot girls, girls only ask the hot guys. All the regular people fall bassackwards into a relationship because someone realizes "love was right in front of me all along." And some people live alone, overlooked by everyone, and die alone.
They would do better. Period.
Approaching. Dating. Even to a surprising extent, physical attraction -- it's a SKILL. Practice, analysis, experimentation... they lead to greater skill.
This is something successful men know by experience.
It's revealing that all women have voted "No" on the poll. Women tend to be passive in dating (and in life generally) -- it's no coincidence that women often believe in fate and signs. But those are Bullshit. They're simply experiencing the skill of a practiced man when they get swept off their feet.
There are no "naturals." Just men who did the difficult learning while still young.
Women have the luxury of believing in fantasy. Men don't.
Men, if you want success in dating, you have to put in the practice. You will be awkward at times. Some women will get annoyed with you. But you can increase your ability and have dating success. Approach as many women as possible, stack up the rejections, and learn a lesson from each.
I'd also advise not to take dating advice from women... by and large, they know very little about it.
The main problem with your hypothesis is that you assume all shy guys are unattractive trolls who no woman would want. That's not the case at all. There are relatively unattractive guys who get tons of pussy, and there are good-looking guys who remain virgins for a long time. Life's complicated like that.
Let's imagine it's the social norm for the women to primarily do the asking. Maybe society is going that way? There would be a bunch if guys sulking watching their more desirable friends get asked to dance or get bought drinks or whatever and not them. There would be that male ego: "What does he have that I don't have?" thing going on. It would be simply pathetic. A desireable guy is or isn't. He actually has a better chance doing the asking so guys should stop complaining before they put themselves in a position where they are completely overlooked. Sorry but this is nature.
Eh... i feel like they just crying little apple soldiers... GO TALK TO THE DAMN GIRL/GUY! If he or she like the person it doesn't matter go talk to her/him and flirt DAMNIT why is it hard for you to understand! Who ever like the one person more you got win the heart of the clueless one!
