Nobody likes a rejection. So if you like a guy, give him some signals and let him know that he may approach. You may have to be somewhat obvious about it. Some guys can be pretty dense (like me! Although I've gotten a lot better over the years). I remember years ago, I thought this one girl I knew was just super friendly until she finally told me "when are you going to take me out on a date?"

A lot of guys don't like that "long walk back" after being rejected, whether it's in person or online, and it's not always easy to get a read on a woman to determine if you're setting yourself up for rejection or if you've got an honest chance. Then there are guys like me who need a ton of bricks to land on their head before they realize that a woman is interested in them. They can be the most frustrating to a girl who is trying to be subtle with her hints.
This. Drop us a hint. A real one, not some subtle body language nuance that only the rain man would notice.

I kinda like the idea of being stalked, until it gets dangerous/serious. Like kinda good-natured stalking, just love...and if I turn her down, no murderous feelings of revenge, lol.

When I am being pursued, I find it very flattering and a boost to my ego.

I have no objection to be being pursued.

I'd rather be pursued. I'm way too shy to approach women.

thanks
Not necessarily. I was always shy and reserved--on the surface--and never had any shortage of men approaching me, not even now, at 54. It all depends. On what, I have no idea.

A woman can change her mind quick if the guy is ugly, is poor, doesn't have a car, is shorter than her, lives with the parents, and the long list goes on and on.

How do you handle a lady who shows she likes you when you either don't or just want to be friends?
The same way men handle it?
