Relationships can be complicated.
Today, what do you think is your relationship status with anyone in your life. Would you agree, that society has set characteristics specific to genders? Relationships are complicated and so is the expectation that is attached to them. The stereotypical mentality, that men have to take the first step to approach a woman belongs to the yesteryears. An evident example of people believing in this idea was a post on Reddit that we recently came across. So, we would like you all to see what this post had to convey and how did people react to it.
It isn’t always that easy. Most people are afraid of getting rejected.
Why continue with the mind games when you can communicate honestly?
They might know what they want but they might not want to ‘go after it’.
And that is nothing to be ashamed about either.
Mature or not, you don’t want to come off too strong and make it awkward between you and the person you are interested in.
We as a society should stop putting people into stereotypical boxes.
It depends on the individual, we can’t talk about the whole gender.
It should not at all mean that he doesn’t respect you enough if he can’t chase after you.
It should never be this hard to show interest in someone.
At the end of the day, most people would prefer that this trend changes.
By the time it’s appropriate, the whole thing has been built up, unfairly, and the moment is usually awkward. People are just genuinely afraid of being let down. It’s a problem that needs to get solved, like yesterday. It’s ok for things to not go right. And if they aren’t, move on. If you have decided not to neatly pack up your sorrow and tow it around in a suitcase behind you for the rest of your life, then there is another moment right around the corner. –Popular-Mushroom9198
But everything takes time and people coming together.
There is always a gray area and no story is the same.
What worked for you might not work for the other person.
Although, People had quite a few strong opinions on this post.
People agreed that the idea is nice but the reality is much harsher.
