It’s just not a cultural norm —it’s the opposite, even — for women to pursue men.
That’s a problem for submissive men.
It isn’t natural for such types to ask women out. They will very well like women, but it’s extremely hard for them to be the one to make a move.
I’ve been very fortunate thus far. My two past girlfriends grabbed my hand and kissed me. Even my former wife did the same.
