As a male I avoid the park at night especially when it’s almost empty. You need to use some common sense.
Men aren’t mind readers they don’t know what you are thinking. Nothing has changed in last several centuries, men are expected to initiate the relationship. When was the last time a woman approached a man to start a relationship ? You would think she was weird or the woman was desperate. There is nothing worse than getting up your nerve to approach a woman and suffering humiliation. And yet even in this age of empowering women, a brave man, a confident man is expected to overcome social barriers. Many men have just given up on relationships. Very sad for everyone.
