Make your move
A friend (female) said to me, "I don't call boys. If they like me, they have to call me."
I replied, "You are ridiculous."
Why should the guy do all the leg work, ladies? I bet you always put "Ken" in the driver's seat of your "Barbie" convertible too.
I think dating – and wooing – should go both ways. Men need encouragement. They need to feel wanted and desired as much women do. Not to mention, being honest and upfront with your feelings takes a hell of a lot more courage than shyly looking away. At the very least, the man will feel flattered and respect your candor. If he doesn't, he isn't worth your time anyway. I know that sounds cliché, but really, who wants to date a bag of feminine cleanser? Not me.
Granted, I used to be a lot more forward than I am now ... I'm getting old and my legs are tired from chasing. But I do know from experience how attractive a little feminine aggression can be to a guy. And, as "tired" as I may be, if I want to get to know some one better, I won't coyly hide it.
So all you little prisses out there, listen up: Put your "Barbie" in the driver's seat and go make your move.
