Over the weekend, I met up with my girls for a little wine and conversation. Predictably, the talk turned to one of our favorite topics: Men!
After one of my friends mentioned that someone told her she should try Paul Carrick Brunson’s challenge and ask out 10 men (she scoffed), we got into a conversation about who should make the first move.
Although I advocated that women can and should make the first move, many of my friends weren’t having it. The consensus was that men should always approach the woman first.
When I told them that some men are (admittedly) shy about approaching women, one friend exclaimed, “Then they aren’t the man for me. The type of woman I am…I need a man who isn’t afraid.” Although I disagree with the idea of waiting for a man to always initiate the meet and greet, I wondered what kind of signs we giving off to show we are open to meeting them.
Eye contact. A seductive glance. A smile. A wave of the hand.
