I know so many guys who have never asked a girl out (myself included), and almost all of my friends are nice and funny guys, but they never go up and talk to girls in public. We will be sitting at a bar and see some hot girl, and we will sit around saying stuff like "That girl is hot" but then none of us go talk to her, we just sit there and drink beer and talk. I've noticed this quite a lot, most guys aren't willing to ask women out, and many of those that are do so only after the pieces are already laid out for them (as in the girl basically tells him she likes him, or the guys friends/girls friends try to set them up). Even really good looking guys who you would think would be more confident aren't willing to talk to women out of the blue, or ask them out. I know I am described as better looking than most guys and I just lack the social capacity to do this sort of thing. I can talk to a woman, but I just can't understand verbal or other cues. I dont know if she likes me, and I can't tell if she wants me to ask her out. And of course confidence isn't the issue, I think the issue is too much confidence, I am too full of pride to get rejected so I am not going to risk it, because then my self image gets ruined, and it gets awkward whenever I see the girl, plus I dont like taking risks because I could live a nice safe life or risk a bunch of failures, I choose the safe life, and I feel like a lot of other guys are the same way. What do you think? Are guys becoming less bold?

It's very true. I pride myself on approaching and being bold although I'm shamed for it a lot on this website. It's just our generation. We are all using social media to communicate so much that we forgot how to actually communicate effectively in person face to face. The pussification in our generations men is also becoming absolutely absurd. I've read a lot of studies that were conveyed to the public some years ago about our water supply and all of our processed food leading to the plummet of testosterone levels. Our testosterone levels in comparison to our grandparents generation has dropped by tremendous amount.
This radical feminist movement is getting to the point where women don't want to act like women and men are in the dust acting confused as fck. I live in southern california which is a very left winged area to live in. If you drive a truck you have a small dick.. if you own a gun you have a small dick. if you workout a lot you have a small dick. if you over aggressive you are a player.. if you bold in your beliefs on gender roles than you are a uneducated anti feminist. Men are being shamed for assuming any type of masculinity and as a result we are becoming little girls are we are scared to get these labels thrown on us. It's absolutely pathetic.
