Dating online: women ask the men out

Dating is still one of those old fashioned backwaters between the sexes. There’s only one place where women ask men out: those snappy US sitcoms that we’re all so keen on. In reality (most of the time) it’s the blokes that make the running. Obviously women aren’t passive in the process; in fact more often than not they’re more aware and in control of the subtle maneuvering. Online though, women are freer to be direct.
