I’m not the type of guy that will boldly hit on girls. I also don’t like pressuring girls into situations where they may feel uncomfortable. Call me a pussy- man if you want, but that’s just how I deal with my relationships. When I encounter a girl that I’m attracted to, and I feel that she is interested in me, I’d much rather take it slowly and let a relationship blossom. I feel that when I rush into asking a girl out, I may make her feel uncomfortable. I worry that she may feel pressured into my proposition. That’s why I prefer to start a relationship after a solid friendship has been developed. Granted, I’ve fallen into “the friend zone” quite a few times with this approach, but, the way I see it, if it doesn’t develop into a relationship, I still have a friend. That’s definitely not a bad thing in my opinion. I feel like a lot of girls get frustrated by this though because they expect me, as a man, to be much more aggressive in my courtship. But that’s not me. I don’t plan on changing my approach to relationships for a girl, I will just wait for the right girl.

I do find it attractive when a girl is very bold and flirtatious though. It’s strange to think how the gender roles are switched in my approach to relationships. I don’t necessarily see a problem with that though. I just feel a much stronger connection when I am not the only one that is taking the initiative in furthering the romantic interest.
