A couple of days ago, I made a post where I took the initiative to ask someone new to my city to hangout as "friends." I made a post about it where many reminded me that I already went against FDS principles because the guy I dmed gave an extremely lukewarm wishy washy answer. It wasn't easy to read the answers but it was necessary because the answers were correct. Let men take the lead to ask you out.
I watch Bachelor In Paradise because it's fun and yesterday, one of the main contestants, Andrew, left paradise because he had strong feelings for Teddi, a previous contestant paired up with him who left a couple weeks ago. Andrew strung along another woman, Jessenia, and literally made out with a different woman in front of Jessenia. Andrew finally admitted to Jessenia, after she had to preen it out of him why he was never so invested in her because of Teddi. Jessenia went after Andrew. She initiated the pursuit.
Long story short, men will waste your time. They will string women along and shows like BIP, are the perfect example of why men should pursue women. I'm not perfect at carrying out the FDS principles but I am getting better.
