Men not dating
And here we naively thought men were doing it because they were enlightened. Being a feminist doesn’t mean that we want chivalry and the feeling of being wanted to go out the window. We claim that guys aren’t aggressive anymore, don’t come up to us in bars, or take initiative in asking us out, but maybe it’s really that as overeducated, ambitious women we don’t like being chased.
Women have slowly received more and more support for the feminist movement in the past century. Men are no longer the “aggressors” they used to be when beginning a relationship. But just because we know we can, doesn’t mean we want to. While it’s easy to blame men (very easy), are women also at fault?
While there are many events at which young adults can meet and mingle, we wanted an event that was explicitly pointed towards the goal of good relationships.
Of course we had no idea how this scheme would be received and whether or not we would even achieve the minimum number of forty people to actually book out the hotel restaurant.
There is such a difference between what is available for men and woman.
What I find most interesting at this point is the whole dating scene.
We have been divorced for 2 years and although it saddens me that my family has been broken apart, I am happy that my ex and I have have managed to be civil enough to make it okay for the kids.
Men have never been known for their patience and cunning ways. Let’s be honest, those are things women pretend to not pride themselves on. We forget that guys are just as afraid of rejection as we are and need a lot of encouragement to approach a woman. to the two straight men reading this: Approach girls when you are out.
When they tell you that they don’t want these things they are lying! Early 40’s with small children – although these women are closer to your age (not really) they are at a completely different stage.
They are raising small kids and are looking for someone to be a partner.
There’s no taking off hats or courting through invitations. You probably thought you'd meet a guy at a bar and that he'd ask for your number.
You probably thought you’d be on your way to dinner next week.
