Can we just cut the chase and get to know each other?
We live in a generation where chasing one another is seen as more desirable than walking side by side. A generation where, if a woman doesn’t pretend to disinterested or a man isn’t wanted by many others, then we aren’t as attracted to them as we otherwise would’ve been. A generation where a woman is unconsciously tuned to pursue a typical ‘play hard to get’ tactic with a man who she’s interested in, and where a man has to spend all of his time and energy in pursuing this woman until he breaks through her set-up-only-for-dating-purposes-but-otherwise-nonexistent-for-her-family-and-friends-wall.
