So, it's all up to the man? Whenever something doesn't work out it's because HE dropped the ball?? It can never be the other way around - i.e. HER doing?
There are plenty of wonderful marriagable women on CM. Moreso than any other dating site. But you won't find many of them on the forums. I'm starting to believe that this is the damaged floor models section of the furniture store. The marriageable women find a man, fallin love, and marry him. Those who are consitutionally incapable of sharing theirlives with ANYONE sit around carping and scolding men. I'm so fed up with that attitude many here espouse. Not you - you're always fair and never mean-spirited. But many women on these forums are pirahnas.
I am with you on this, David, that it seems to be a common occurrence for women to blame men on almost everything....here on CM, Facebook, etc.
Now back to the topic of men initiating....
if men have to take the risk of rejection, then women do not have a right to complain if they are not picked by a guy. The blade slices both ways. :)
And as a plus (obviously not applicable here, on a Catholic site): but as a man (who is supposed to initiate), I do not have to worry about being asked out by non-Catholics.
Men have always run the risk of rejection. It is not new. Lets not generalize about women OR men here. It is not helping anyone at all.
