All over the world, there is a tendency for women to be reactive instead of proactive to kick-start a love affair and so YEN.com.gh took to Facebook to ask people why this happens.
Knowing that most women do not like to ask for romantic relationships from men, YEN.com.gh asked readers via Facebook why this is the case.
Of course, the problem seems to be of culture but according to most of our respondents, women just do not do that because they believe they are prizes to be fought for.
We collated a few of the responses that were most representative of the general feeling.
Ohemaa Tikaa, responding as a woman, wrote: "There are questions on our minds like: What if the guy have a girlfriend you don't know? What if the person don't love you and will never love you? What if you are not his taste and he says no to you?
The sentiments seem reasonable but they are not unique to women so that men do not feel the same.
Patricia Naa Mensah had a different take: "bcos de guy she likes doesn't hav money bhh der is a certain guy she doesn't lyk bhh spoil her wid everything"
Well, in fairness certain women would decline going for some men simply because the men do not have a lot of means
The idea of abuse in relationships was also brought up by one respondent, Sulley Irene, who said:"They treat us badly when they propose to us themselves how much more we proposing to them? Pls we won't make that mistake".
Another respondent, David Kwei Asafoah, presumably a man who wanted to see things from a woman's perspective wrote: "They have this perception that the guy in question might think they're cheap. But this is an easy thing for the ladies in the western world. So since they're learning some of their way of dressing they should as well learn some behaviours too".
