Men like it when women ask way more than women like it when men ask. A women who asks guys out will get way more dates than a guy who asks women out.
I think sometimes women get rejected and then say that they were rejected because men donâ€™t like aggressive women, but they are using that as an excuse so that they donâ€™t feel rejected. A man could never use that excuse. Imagine a guy saying that he always gets rejeted because women donâ€™t like it when men make the first move. He would get laughed at because everyone knows heâ€™s just saying that to save his pride.
I think to increase equality women should (gasp) actually risk rejection more often and if they get rejected they shouldnâ€™t use the excuse that men donâ€™t like it when women ask. I know it hurts but it comes with the territory and I think relationships would be better off if this happened.
