Excuse me sir...did I just take your Super powers away!?!?

Scenario: Woman is at an eatery enjoying her meal, solo. In walks handsome man. She hears door chime and automatically looks up. He walks in scanning the eatery and spots her. They lock eyes for 5 seconds, then look away. She continues to eat, he places order. She looks up he's looking at her again. Lock eyes... 5 seconds.. looks away. She's finished, but lingers just a little while longer to see if he will approach. He's looking, seems interested but doesnt approach. She almost wants to get up, put her # on her receipt and write call me on it. But she thinks its too forward and will make her look aggressive. So sadly they lock eyes one last time and she leaves the eatery.

Now....when it comes to men and women, who should approach whom? If I have been drinking and am feeling a little extra flirtatious, I will approach a guy and spark up a convo or if I sense that a guy is watching me and I find him attractive, I wont turn my head away if I catch him looking at me. I will make constant eye contact so that he knows that I am interested and if he approaches after that, it will be cool. So ladies and gents of the round table.... Should a woman approach a man? Ladies, would you, have you? Men, how do you feel about a woman approaching you? What say you?


The Road More or Less Traveled

In observing friends and family who have/are dating and lived to tell the story and from my past and current dating situations, I have realized that there are 3 roads dating can wind up on.....
Road 1: Friendville Lane... here the two have decided that they adore each others company but there's no romanticism or sexual chemistry, so they forgo the sex and remain JUST friends. Road 2: R Kelly Avenue aka Homey Lover Friends... here the two have loads of sexual chemistry and they like each others company but one or both of them, see nothing long term with the other. So they just hook up every once in a while to get one or two in.
Road 3: Relationship Road...here the two people are willing to invest time into each other to see if something long term is plausible. There is definite sexual, physical and mental attraction present.

Having been on all 3 of these roads myself, the question is who determines the road you are traveling? And can one be headed in the wrong direction and get off that path to head into another? What say you?
