It’s hard to know what a woman is thinking or a man either. To use a basketball analogy, you miss all the shots you don’t take. The burden is on the man to make the first move. How many men have you tried to talk to in the supermarket or Starbucks ? Nearly none I suspect. If a women approached me, I would either think she is desperate or looking for a paid relationship.
Sometimes a man is able to start a new relationship. More often than not he is rejected and suffers humiliation. Men have no idea if a women is open to a new relationship. Men aren’t mind readers. If women were primarily responsible for starting new relationships you would be writing about how cruel men are when they reject their innocent show of interest. You are not a man, believe me It’s not all fun and games.
