Most Helpful Guy
I don't think either should *have* to do it.
I think many women for some reason get this idea in the heads that because they have an inclination toward being approached it means that guys naturally want to play the corresponding part. I don't believe that's the case, why can't approaching someone just be a scarey thing for everyone? I'd prefer to have people make the first move toward me.
I don't like women who refuse to ask guys out, it's just very off-putting. That doesn't mean I expect them to come to me.
I think women should be encouraged to go for it more and discouraged from waiting around. I'd like things to be closer to 50/50 when it comes to making the first move. I'm ok if guys do naturally do it a little more, say 60/40, it may just naturally happen that way. But no girl should ever be sitting around waiting or dropping all these silly hints and expecting something to happen.
Shyness is cute but it isn't an excuse, guys can be shy too. Just because a guy is interest doesn't mean he'll be able to make a move. If you like someone then go for it.
I don't like people who buy into that gender roles BS. If I was going to or have made the first move and I find out how intent you are on being passive, especially if you're a confident person, then I'm going to back out and you'll regain my interest and gain respect for coming to me.3
