I will never understand pursuit from the man’s perspective, the guts it takes to ask a girl out for the first time. I will never understand the fear of being rejected; the strength it takes to pick up the pieces of yourself when she says it’s not mutual. The courage it takes to go ask again for clarity or for confirmation that she’s actually not playing hard to get. I will never understand the bravery it takes to ask another, and another, and another until you finally get the one that would say yes. I would never understand the confidence it takes to convince a girl that you are the one and the future is brighter for you if only she gives you a chance.
