So, it sounds like we're allowed to do some ranting here. Well I've got a good one to kick off with.
Why is it that men take so long beating around the bush?
Now this may only be a problem that I'm experiencing, but whenever a guy seems to be interested in me he takes so long beating around the bush and trying to gauge my potential reaction that he inadvertently blows his chances. I'm not saying that I don't want to get to know a guy before he asks me out (in fact I like to know a lot about a guy before I'll go out with him), but I'm talking about after you get to know each other. Guys seem to be great at the "get to know you" part, but when it comes down to time when the girl is ready for the guy to ask her out all he does is move into this stage of asking annoying little questions like "so what do you look for in a boyfriend" or "why did you break up with your last boyfriend." Or worse they try to sell themselves by saying something like "after I get this degree I could easily support a family" or "Now all I have to do is find a woman to marry." Do they think that this is helping their chances? All it's doing is either a) making us think that they think that we are too dense to realize what they are up too or b) sending mixed signals and making us want to pop an aspirin and go to bed.
