Tell him it was the best steak you've had in a long time.
My intention is to help the women understand that while we have achieved great strides towards equality in the work place, a mistaken idea has arisen that men and women are equal and therefore now they are the same. And chances are strong the genders never will be because our differences get down to our DNA. The more you think men and women are the same, the more likely you are to undermine a man's role in dating which is highly disruptive to your chances of finding love.
I have found that strong, independent woman tend to want to get the ball rolling in the relationship area, just like you do in business.
You want to get his digits, ask him out, email him, buy tickets to events, and follow up when he doesn't call after the first date to find out why.
But rarely will he get invested in you because it wasn't his idea. I don't care how busy or shy he is, there are no excuses.
Occasionally, a man will go out with a woman who asks him out and if after the first date he likes her, he will take over the pursuit - provided of course that she let's him. However, when you get in there and take over his job by calling or asking him out, you confuse him or worse, you risk turning him off. So, if you pick up the ball and pursue him ifhe's not doing it right or fast enough for you, YOU LOSE. If a man you are interested in doesn't ask you out, call you back, set up another date, he is simply not that interested. Because men know exactly what they need to do to see you and win you over.
