She actually spoke to guys first and then flirted with them. Then they asked her out, and she accepted.
It was just that simple.
In reality, contrary to the mostly bad advice in the Manophere, women are the first ones to show signs of interest, and then men react to them.
Again, it's just that simple.
How people turned out like this I do not know, but there are many books on it, ranging from religion to evolution. I reserve judgement on any of it.
I still get women showing signs of interest, which mystifies me, because I could be their father (unless they have some sort of father-thing going on, and some women do).
For example, recently I was standing in line at a grocery store and I saw the checkout girl look at me (who was in her early 30s, I found out later). Then she looked at me again.
The word "recognize" means "to look twice."
I knew in all certainty she was going to say something to me, and she did. (I get this about once a month.)
It was nothing to do with lifting weights or dressing expensively, or any of that - such as women liking "insanely confident men" (which is going to get you no dates at all and in fact drive women away, except for the loons).
If a woman is attracted to you, she's attracted to you. There's isn't much rhyme or reason to it. I have found, in my case, that women are attracted to me because they think I'm funny. But others hate me for me the same reason - but they don't think I'm funny (which is why I tell people women either love or hate me).
It does help to some degree (but ultimately not much) if you are muscular and dress expensively and the rest of that. You'll get a certain kind of girl but it may not be the one you want.
But none of that is the point of the article.
The point is that many, if not most women no longer know to attract a man.
More than once I've had women do the "hair flip" (brushing back their hair with one hand) and stick their breasts out at me. Those are flirting signs. Supposedly they're inborn, but these days most women suppress them, even with guys they're attracted to. Which means it's to everyone's detriment.
Since most woman know longer how how to attract a man, they end up getting a bunch of obnoxious jerks (the Manosphere's delusion of "confidence") hitting on them, and even though those woman are surrounded by an ocean of decent men, they think there are no "good guys" left.
The problem, again, they have no idea how to attract men.
When I was in high school I had more than one woman tell me later they had a crush on me. I didn't have a clue. They showed no sign of it whatsoever.
The same thing in college. I had one tell me that she had a crush on me and "it was obvious." Huh? How was it obvious? I never had a clue, because she never showed any indications.
Did she think I could read her mind?
When I was in college I lived in a studio apartment (for a year and a half) attached to a house with 11 girls in it.
Was it an eye-opener.
Most of the girls sat there like bumps on a log and apparently expected guys to approach them and ask them out - without showing any signs of interest whatsoever.
Two of the popular girls were friendly, and both seemed to genuinely like me. The others - meh. Sit there, show no signs of interest, occasionally get asked out (one time in a year and a half) - and never get asked out by him again. Or if he did they turned him down.
Mostly, I got the impression, because they thought he wasn't good enough for them for a long relationship.
So women today don't show signs of interest because 1) they don't know how and 2) when they get asked out, for some reason, they're not attracted to him because he's not good enough for them - even though there was nothing special about these mediocre girls.
I once had a women tell me that her mother told her, "Go out with nearly any man who asks you out, because one of them might be your future husband."
Of course, he's not going to ask you out if you don't show some sign of interest in the first place. Unless he's an oblivious jerk - and I've met those.
I've been able to find some of the women I knew at the house on Facebook and through various other sites. The friendly ones are married and the unfriendly, entitled bumps-on-log are not. No husband and no kids.
Why does that not surprise me?
