It seems that in the modern world it doesn’t really matter. Some people even raise their children as gender natural. Moreover, the Internet itself is a very democratic place. But according to statistics, most men absolutely do not mind when the girl is proactive on the dating platforms. Meanwhile, due to long-established stereotypes, not all women are active when they see a proper candidate.
Earlier very persistent women were not approved by society. Now people are quite open to experiments. Girls are more free and self-confident. After all, many men are just shy to start a conversation first. There are many reasons for this: f. e. fear of rejection or mocking. Often, men are confused when they come across a very beautiful girl.
