    was thinking will we reach a time it will be seen as outdated and a form of harrassment, if so when? how will it change man and women relations? will everything be online, people you know mutually, friends of friends would it be better or worse for both parties in general? discuss

    Not necessarily, it's just less common nowadays cuz like you said online dating is more prevalent and the harassment stories, along with metoo s*** scared guys off from partaking in the act. Man the 90's and 2000's I imagine were much better times to do it though

    You still can do it, just have to tread more carefully

    yh 100 i do it but try be as respectful as possible. i hear that not talking bout right now just more thinking in the near future like next 5-10 years you think it will be a thing of the past? also you think would be better for society as a whole or worse?

    Dunno how it'll affect society as a whole, I think cold approaching will still be a thing just decreasing in general. It'll be slightly better for women I guess as they'd be more comfortable with not having to be bothered by some random going to them, I'm afraid it'll make guys weaker though and not as assertive.

    Again the metoo and online stuff are the two biggest factors that are driving guys away from doing this generally

    I think we're already there no? Not saying that people don't cold approach anymore, but it's just seems like it's super taboo to me now idk.

    i hear that slightly better for women and i agree but the romantic aspect will be lost of just bumping into your future partner irl and the whole romcom era of fate will be lost on the newer generation i dont think tinder/other dating apps has been good for this gen tbh

    Maybe, if Online Dating advances past it's current stage its in rn. But high-key it's gonna ruin the dating scene if cold approaching becomes taboo (yes their are weirdos out there, but still.)

    Dating apps are so unbelievably toxic that is surprises me there hasn't been any push back against them.

    100% agree on dating apps, I mean sure it's more "convenient" but it's quite rigged and most of them don't even lead to any longterm relationships. Well s*** even a f***boy I know irl who did well on Tinder admitted the app wasn't a good place to look for an actual relationship and that says a lot

    Probably. Society wants to shame men for having the balls to cold approach. Don鈥檛 know when it鈥檒l fully be gone tho

    Said it in a different thread. Best course of action is to normalize women approaching and starting the conversation. That way there isn鈥檛 no more complaints about that.

    I highly doubt most guys gonna trip About females harassing them unless they truly are. While with a woman, harassment is very fine line and perceptual.

    Honestly dating apps are a cancer. I used to be hooked and did pretty well but it just seems like such a cheat code.

    Wish they would ban dating apps and make people talk again. World starting to feel so robotic. Nobody likes to talk in public anymore, especially me.

    100 but to be honest i cant see that happening anytime soon women aren't used to being rejected or even advancing on males this scenario would be much better though tbh but it's a confidence thing i dont think a lot of women have right now

    Are we not already in that time? I stopped a while ago, around my late teens to early 20s. I imagine as a woman it's annoying as hell having to deal with dudes approaching you every day thinking they're smooth as hell even though you've heard the same corny lines all day and you're just trying to go to the store/workout/chill out in the park

    If you honestly think Women are going to put their ego to the test and actually approach in the way that men do you're crazy. Not to mention Women "approach" and give their signals all the time, they're just coy when they do it and do it only to real attractive guys. I've only had like 6 times in my life where a woman more approached or started a convo. in a really blatant way like a dude would.
