5 reasons women should also approach men

03 September 2015, 17:39 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Waiting for the men to make a move in your life can be a bit tedious. Worse, the ones who actually approach you are not the ones you are interested in. If you keep waiting and waiting and darting longing glances at the guy you actually want, it never happens. You have to make a move or you will continue having flings with a long list of guys who are not good for you.

He is shy

Men can be shy too. Gender roles can be reversed to especially when it comes to dating and relationships. If you are also shy, you will know that he will never make a move and he will continue talking to that chatty receptionist you do not like. You will have to take one for the team if you want this guy. Take the lead, go ask him out and give him some encouragement. You might just find he was also interested.

This guy makes the effort

Have you ever noticed how; the guys you are really interested in do not make the effort. And you overlook the guys who make the effort because they are just too nice. What is being too nice? I thought women like men who make them feel nice. Give the guy who is making an effort a chance. He might just surprise you because he is already coming from a positive place and you are not going to wonder if you are forcing him. He is there, showing you how good he can be as your man. So ask him out.

He is making the move but not vocalizing them

Rejection is not something a lot of people can take easy. So they go for action rather than saying what it is they actually want. Calling you, asking about your day, offering to take you out and coming to see when you are not feeling well. Those are moves men interested in you make. So it will be up to you, to ask if they would like a date. If you wait, this guy may never get around to it.

Catch him staring

Sometimes, it is not the person you know but the person you do not yet know. If you are in a public place and catch someone who you might like staring, go ask them for their number and ask them out. Maybe they are staring because your skirt is torn, who cares? Fix it and maybe you might get away with a date as well.

You have been friends

You started out as friend but as time went on you realized you might just like to date this person. So go ahead and ask them. Most people do not ask because they are afraid of the awkward moment. Especially men, they are so afraid of the friend zone they rarely do anything to get out of it. Make the move if you are interested in them.
