There are a lot of things that young adult men do to get young women (into bed, into relationships, etc), and plenty of it is legitimate.
However, there are just some things that I see other guys doing sometimes that really "gets my goat," so to speak, that makes me roll my eyes and wonder how the human race managed to produce such a huge population when so many of my peers appear even more clueless than I do when it comes to courting women. It's just that, they don't always work the way you'd want.
Let’s interpret the classic “man-boy” behaviors through a lens other than laziness: Delaying marriage can help: avoid shared physical, emotional, and spiritual space, and retreat into personal space.
Outdo us in prayer, charity, faith, and grace, and we men will try to outdo you in godly discipline and ambition.
Then, perhaps mutual awe of the One “who helps us in our weakness” will bloom in due course (Romans ).
God is disciplining immature men to grow them up (Hebrews ).
He doesn’t need your snide comments to help (Proverbs ).
Or they work exactly how you'd expect, but only on the type of women you would never want to be with. Don't make me laugh." And then he's surprised if she changes the subject, acting as if she didn't hear the last thing he said, or if she just ignores him altogether. I noticed that when I'd let the banter go too far and stoop to this level, I tended to very easily attract exactly the kind of girl I don't like--girls with weaker self-esteem, girls that are less self-assured. So if that's the kind of girl a guy wants to attract, by all means he should treat a woman like a child.
