Reply To: Making the effort in dating
It is not creepy for a man to escalate physical contact. Most women expect it. When I say push for intimacy, I don’t mean physically dominate her. I mean escalate until she stops you. Start with what she is already willing to do. If it’s making out, start with that. As you’re making out, let your hands wander. As you get more and more intimate, she will either respond or resist. When she stops you, end the date. Tell her you’re tired and need to get some sleep. Tell her whatever. Just make sure the date ends right there, on her refusal to go further.
