i've always been told that its the guy that has to have most of the initiative when it comes to talking to a girl or meeting a new girl (in real life, normal settings). the guy is the one who has to lead and be the first to introduce himself and ask for her number and all the rest of that awkward stuff.
my question is why. why is it the guy that has to be the one to go up to a girl and make the first move? back when i was feeling low and envious that a friend of mine who i liked had decided to be with a jerk, i had hypothesized that the guy had to make the first move because if the girl did she would choose wrong (the "bad boy", the football star, the nerd). obviously that was a stupid illogical theory, and it ended up leaving me back at square one of my question.
why does the guy have to be first? girls should be able to just go up to a guy and talk to them, i would think. both should be able to get digits and stuff. why does social conventions dictate a massaganist perception of introductory proceedings?
lol i love how my last sentence had so many big words in it XD
