    My current is the only one I've actually made the first move on, and she's the only person I've dated that I can say I actually like.

    I dunno. I guess it comes with the whole Ne "wait and see" attitude, but sometimes you just gotta take the reins and go.

    nevernevernever. i never make the first move. i trick the guy in question into making the first move.
    A colleague of the great scientist James Watson remarked that Watson was always “lounging around, arguing about problems instead of doing experiments.” He concluded that “There is more than one way of doing good science.”
    It was Watson’s form of idleness, the scientist went on to say, that allowed him to solve “the greatest of all biological problems: the discovery of the structure of DNA.” It's a point worth remembering in a society overly concerned with efficiency.

    Yes, don't like having my hand forced.

    Actually, I find that in life generally, I tend to take the lion's share of being the proactive one, the initiator, getting things going, getting things started, getting people moving etc etc... and actually, I don't like it. I do it, mostly because it usually seems that if I don't, people will just dither and twat around indefinitely and nothing will get done. But I don't like having to play that role, and I don't like that people rely on me to play it and expect me to play it, and don't make the effort to play it themselves.

    So... it always impresses me when someone takes that yoke off me and makes a first move with something, allowing me to play my more natural and instinctive role of going with the flow, of being reactive.

    Exaaaactly, Sub.

    Let someone else make the effort for once - show me that you are not always going to need me to lead you.

    Same here. And it's nerve-wrecking since I suck with all this talking about feelings, opening up and dating thing.

    But I run into those guys that interest me so rarely that I can't let them go out of my hands. Like once in every 5 yrs...

    I know what you mean about never finding guys.

    I actually never have to make the first move, so I never really had to think about it. For some reason, a lot of guys like me and think I am very interesting, but I get bored of them all so fast. It is like, I want a relationship and I don't want one, because I don't tend to get attached, and just wish I could find more guys worthy of attachment!

    I just want to want the attachment!

    I don't like making the first move at all. But, people have unfortunately told me I'm intimidating? That makes things annoying for me.
