Yeah I think you are right about that, to some extent.You are mostly correct, but there are some areas where you're slightly off the mark. It's probably generational, and perhaps even racial. But white Millennial and Gen Z women, truly, do not do a damn thing at all to let their affections for a guy that they really like be known. Especially if they are attractive. Every girl that I've learned was into me from other people, you'd never have a clue she knew I even existed. These are the women that bitch and moan that men won't "approach" (men never did "approach"!) them. The women who I've actually been with are not societally beautiful (6's and 7's), but they made it easy for me and showed that they actually wanted me. Take Pierce Brosnan. Objectively the best James Bond, but married to two less appealing women. You see this all the time; studly men with frumpy women, and gorgeous bombshells with beta nerds. I never see an Alpha male with an attractive woman: we are either perpetually alone, or we are in the company of said frumpy women.
White Millennial and Gen Z women expect that a "real man" does all; they claim to want a masculine "real man", yet demand that we go out of our way to try to "pursue" after them like a horny dog. They don't want to accept that pursuit is strictly their responsibility. Consider the Bible. I can't think of a single Biblical example of a man EVER "pursuing" a woman, can you? I can list at least 10 stories of women pursuing men, or men being set up by friends/family with a woman in Bible. It's pretty damn clear that this indicates that a woman is placed on a man's path, and he is not to go out looking nor pursuing her. Yet today's "conservative Christians" dismiss what is obvious here with the lie "men are to be like Christ, who pursues us". A man can't both be masculine and chase after a woman.
IF a woman does drop "hints", she'll make it so unbelievably subtle that the man will choose the logical explanation every, single time:
A "wholesome" good girl that claims to be a "conservative Christian" seeks to spend the DAY in your hotel room to "watch movies". The TV is an old tube TV, so during the DAY, she closes the curtains.
This happened to me in my early 20s in a LDR to a girl I was convinced I would marry. EVERY girl I've told the story to calls me an idiot for not having sex. But most men use LOGIC: closing the curtains during the DAY reduces glare on a ridiculously old TV, and a "good girl" like that would have been sincere and not looking for pre-marital sex. This girl inexplicably broke things off with me 4 days late, and gave me the "No Spark" bullshit speech. A girl that had the same unmistakable twinkle in her eye before the hotel debacle.
Women don't exist anymore.
Actually to be honest, my own experiences where I've been told that a certain girl likes me, were actually people trying to taunt me and create problems, they were lies setup to trap me or humiliate when trying to pursue the girl. So I wouldn't have much to speak on about it.
But with the Millennial and at least what I perceive even younger generations of girls, the thing I notice about them is that they seem far too wrapped up in their 7 second attention spans to even be able to show any interest to a guy either. Most of them do not seem to notice Men whatsoever and just view Men as to be some kind of entertainment utility and then the next moment they get bored, they need something or someone new to entertain them, so you can't even keep up with them.
You bring up a really good point now thinking back with the Bible, it would've never occurred to me until you mentioned that, but when you think of everything with Lilith and Eve even, and many more situations.
Instinctively too, I always believed it's the girl's job to pursue the Men. It's just that sometimes we get so intrigued by some beautiful and interesting girl that we feel the need to make a move, but it's even all that more exciting when a girl does it.
It is society programming that insists that the Men must chase, and that Women should never chase.
Ever notice how Married women are even more desperate in their attempt to chase after Men? They seem to have less qualms about it when they are stuck or unhappy for any moment in their Marriage.
But there have been some situations where I have been genuinely approached by women and even given a phone number by a bartender and other girls who've gone out of their way, so it just proves that if women really want a Man, they will pursue him. Especially the Married Women.
A lot of people can get overly critical and accuse you of why you didn't have sex, usually more so other Men, but the truth of the matter is that a lot of these people don't even understand the moment of what you are in and if you tried to make it happen the best way possible. They are trained to think in a mechanical way of just getting the deed done, but not making it a memorable experience.
I do have a situation that is sort-of still "on-going" from some girl that somewhat made a move on me from 2 years ago which I later pursued some time after, but the situation ended up for lack of better terms in a "stalemate" but me pursuing her didn't change anything for the negative, which is good, since I see her regularly at her place where she works. I don't want to bore you with the story but if you are interested and have an opinion about it, I definitely would like to hear your point of view on it, but no problem either way.
