Should Women Hunt Men
The dating rules seem to have changed and I'm left with the impression that men want women to ask them out? Is this true? If the man is the hunter, why do today's men seem to want the women to pursue them?

Have the dating rules changed or are many women simply getting involved with men who do not respect women because they don't have respect for themselves?
It is concerning that women are led to believe men "hunted" women in the past and if women are equal (as the battle of the sexes drones on) then they can "hunt" men too. And so it goes you cannot have two that lead in anything, so women aggressively pursue men in the name of equality and some men allow it because they don't have much character.
Better for a women to strive to become like a women Apostle Peter describes or follow Proverbs 31 and then wait for a man who respects them and understands his role.

Ruth 3:4 And it shall be, when he lieth down, that thou shalt mark the place where he shall lie, and thou shalt go in, and uncover his feet, and lay thee down, and he will tell thee what thou shalt do.
Ruth 3:5 And she said unto her, All that thou sayest unto me I will do.
Ruth 3:6 And she went down unto the floor, and did according to all that her mother in law bade her.
Ruth 3:7 And when Boaz had eaten and drunk, and his heart was merry, he went to lie down at the end of the heap of corn: and she came softly, and uncovered his feet, and laid her down.

Gordon, very well said.

It's just indicative of how backwards our society has become. And, it shows how way off base we are now. Men's household roles are mocked and emasculated in many T.V. shows. Women are cheap and as strumpets. And, kids are the "mature, smart ones who tell their adult superiors how it's supposed to be". Foolishness. Men should court women, not the other way around. Just like women have no business being on the front lines in the military. There may be an exception to the rule, but, those are rare and are just that, an exception to the rule. Men and women were created EQUAL, but, also, they were created to be very DIFFERENT from each other.

Women have been hunting men since the first daughter of Eve entered puberty.
"Chase me until I catch you" has been the game since then.
Glory to Jesus Christ!

Should Women Hunt Men
---linda3657 on 11/13/06
men are not animals to be hunted.
I know a few woman whould like to put an arrow in thier assume they catch them
but please do not hunt men, after all it is hard to know if it is wabbit season or (and this is for men) DUCK season
---francis on 3/21/12|
The fact is women have always hunted men and vice versa.Even in the old testament.Women are just more open about it at this point in time.I am the old fashioned type but if I was interested I would give hints or even invite him to a home cooked meal.A bachlor loves home cooked food.

I don't view men as being the hunter. I also have difficulty with asking a man out on a date. I don't want to think of it as a man hunting me if I should be asked out.
---brene7657 on 12/20/07|
I asked my male co-workers Sat.I was shocked they all said they "enjoy" the hunt/chase but at the same time they dont want to be completely ignored if U do like them they wanted a little encouragement. So the Bible is still tried and true a man that finds a wife finds a good thing. As a single woman I like being pursued it makes me feel feminine but if I do like a man I will give him hints too so he doesnt think wow this is a waste of my time. If he comes out & asks I tell him truthfully.

In today's politically correct society that's crept into almost everthing we hold sacred, it might not be a bad idea for women to use their 'imbedded' knowledge, attractions, etc to let us men know something. Modern, high profile [working/successful] or/and attractive women women appear to fit the Amazon mold in today's world. Bottom Line? They're still women with needs Thank G_d!
Wonder what Solomon or The Judges would have done [Jud.21st chapter (v.25 "nothing new under the sun ...")]

Marietta...thank you for bringing up RUTH...[a model of a woman]. Ruth was Wise enough to heed the counsel of her Mother in Law [Naomi]. Ruth washed and put on her best clothes. She used special fragrance [not your Estee Lauder]. She went into Boaz's house at night and she placed her body at his FEET. He didn't boot her out; he drew her towards him. She had Immense Favor with him. ***Ruth said: COVER ME. [To be covered is to be protected and provided for.] And that is what he did.
---Reiter on 11/21/06|
LOL I really enjoyed this blog. I, too, am single (37). Never been married, and for some reason can't really bring myself to actually ask a guy out. Consider Ruth and Boaz. Did Ruth hunt him or bait him? Whatever! It worked. She got him.
---Marietta on 11/21/06|
for you baiters/trappers beware wild animals (such as men) will chew of a leg before they stay trapped you better tame them before you trap them...
---Jared on 11/20/06|
LOL nurse Robert
I'm the person that posted this blog to begin with and I've enjoyed the responses. At 47 it's just difficult to determine what 40yr old "Christian" men really want/expect. Sometimes I'm left with the impression that the men want us to make the first move personally I think this is wrong but to each his/her own. As for me I think I'll just let God bring Mr. Right to me because my common sense seems to be defective.
---linda3657 on 11/19/06|
Men hunt animals. Women use to hunt for men using subtle weapons. Today, they reveal more of themselves by the fashions.
---Steveng on 11/19/06|
Touche NurseRoberts!! What a hunting license that would be!!! Im not carrying that game home...I would have to "get" man to "bring" the one I "caught" home...illogilical as the great Spoc (sp not sure not a treky)would say to Capt.Kurt!
---Jeanne on 11/19/06|
Can women hunt men???
Only during bow season.
---NurseRobert on 11/19/06|
Cute Rachel-- U are right many think if they give in to this or that sin they will get the "person of their dreams". As a Christian He would want U to love God, obey Him 1st the same if a woman did that to a man. It can go both ways so stay strong either male or female.
---Jeanne on 11/18/06|
No matter what the world says that dating rules have changed, men still like to pursue a woman, especially when she plays hard to get. Men love the chase. It's the way they are designed.

Hunting vs. Baiting 101
Men Hunt: Women Bait
Men Pursue: Women Allure
Men Fire: Women Entrap
Warning to Baiters: Some men are experts at taking the "bait" and escaping the commitment. You think he wants you [but he's after the goods...] Don't Give it Up.
---Reiter on 11/17/06|
Thanks Mary, Rachel bait, hunt its all the same in the end one ends up shot, on top of a pickup truk and head hung on the wall! A woman is either cut glass or a diamond. A diamond is rare, precious lasts forever, cut glass is common, does not last. Be a diamond women trust me men will come to you and tell the diff. from cut glass to a diamond!
---Jeanne on 11/17/06|
Hi Jeanne; I love your post! :D I needed a good laugh and I got one! :D God bless ya, sister :)
---Mary on 11/16/06|
Jeanne...what you described is Baiting...not hunting.

Tips for hunting men
Cook well/leave windows open
In a store Yell Free big screen TV's
Go to the TV section/put sports on each/every TV wait they will come
Bump into him and then say sorry but are you look just like that guy on TV
Ask him over to watch sports & give him corn dogs, chips & ice cream to his hearts desire.
Let him play X-box, or computer games until he is numb
Tell him you just adore his mom and his buddies
Laugh at the knock knock jokes they still find funny.
---Jeanne on 11/15/06|
Perhaps a lot of men are realizing that he who finds a wife does not always find a good thing. You have to throw back an awful lot of fish before you come across a keeper.
---ralph7477 on 11/15/06|
I jsut want to make a comment about the title of the blog. should men hunt women? it just sounds alittle cavemanish, like men go out with guns to find a mate who they drag back by the hair. In that light no men shouldn't hunt women but try a concept called courting or dating =)
---Jared on 11/14/06|
You have nailed it. That is EXACTLY what is happening in our society. For the life of me, I will not act contrary to my Inate Feminine Nature...inspite of the force of feminism that is ruling society and government.
---Reiter on 11/14/06|
It's the woman who gives the innnocent "come on sign" saying I'm interested & receptive (may be) then only, does the man take out his bow to go hunting.It's called the subtle move ,so subtle that she even does not know it but men catch on Fast.Now ladies do not attack me u2k-he!he!he!.You guys know- the look flashing eyes, stance, smile,sometimes repeats for dormant males.Is this the humour blog?
---Emcee on 11/14/06|
because men today have been socially nudered. I don't mean to be rude here but if you were faced with sexual harasment charges if you were to misread someone's body language I think you'd probably stop asking.
---Jared on 11/14/06|
I asked out a man once and it was one of the most nervous moments of my life. I really do not envy all guys go through. But I do prefer when the guy asks me, however that hasn't been happening lately...sniff sniff. I asked a friend about it and he says, he likes it when best when girls make it known they like him, and let him make the first move, but he likes it when they set up the second date. I have no idea, I guess however it works best for you.
---bethie on 11/14/06|
Men like the chase, but so do women. God brought Eve to Adam, made her especially for him. My point is this: If you start out being friends with a gal or guy, and let that lead where it does, to a friendship or to asking her/him out, then let it flow that way. If you are referring to meeting someone in a club, street, store, just talk and see where that goes. A friendship should be developed beforehand and then the two of you will agree to go out. Just my opinion.
---Donna9759 on 11/14/06|
sure why not. or at least give some good signals. i always feel like maybe they are just being nice and really not that into me. it makes a person feel wanted like they are special to hunted.
---tony on 11/14/06|
There are societies where women are dominant over men. Our society held women in a revered role as wife, mother,& homemaker. The roles changed as women took more masculine roles, expect "equality" (whatever it is), & trade the "feminine" spirit for an agressive one. Many men are not willing to be chided or chastised for persuing a woman or showing her respect by opening a door or carrying parcels. Ladies (& women) you can't have it both ways. With equality comes...well, equality.

AlanUK_quent5969 , In regard to meeting someone, Just be prayerful about it, and God will take care of it(Philippians 4:6,7). Let the Lord give you contentment (1 Timothy 6:6). God Bless!

Who said the man was the hunter, Linda?
I should think that some men might want women to ask them out--but not all.
---Jack on 11/13/06|
Men are by nature the "hunters" and a woman hunting a man is about as ridiculous as a deer loading a rifle to track down a woodsman.
