Great idea, but lots of guys don’t really appreciate that. Glad that you do but plenty of men get turned off by a woman being too “aggressive.” They believe they are supposed to do the pursuing and not the other way around. I’m an assertive woman who would love the greater option to make first (or second) moves but it’s never been particularly well received, in my experience. Lots of room for culture to change in a variety of ways to let people just be people and do what they want to do without out all these stupid rules about who should do what….
