Ok, I'm a young fit good looking guy and I've been single for almost 16 years. My main reason why I don't approach women, in my opinion, is down to pride. I find it degrading that I have to "prove my worth" before the woman even considers me a possible boyfriend. Pursuing a woman makes me feel like I'm below her and I have to prove myself. It angers me that women always talk about equality yet still expect men to be the ones to make the first move and ask them out. So many women have the mentality of, "If he hasn't got the balls to approach me and pursue me then he's not worth dating." Approaching a woman and pursuing her makes me feel like I'm less than her and that she holds all the power. To me that feels so degrading. I find it so degrading that I would prefer to stay single than have to "prove my worth" just because she has a vagina.
