In fact, when studying and scoring women’s nonverbal behaviors, such as eye contact and smiling, researchers were able to predict a man’s approach to her with 90 percent accuracy.
But the problem many women are faced with today is how to rectify the necessity of initiating the first move with the desire to be pursued.
The difference can sometimes feel like splitting hairs, but when it comes to the laws of attraction, even the smallest of gestures can send just the right or wrong message.
Ask a guy and he will probably tell you that, if he is attracted to you, you will be warmly received in either scenario. The point is that you want to be the one being pursued and, while there are exceptions to every rule, it's smart to set the precedent from the get go.
If this is the case, it's time to back off and not try so hard.
This doesn't mean you should avoid him, but it does mean you should reassess your reasons for attending certain social affairs and let him go.
What's more, most men will only date a woman if he is a.) interested and b.) ready, regardless of who pursues who.
So in the end, pursuing a guy really doesn't increase your odds of romantic success, only your chances of being met with disappointment.
