    Just wondered, when on a night out and you catch the eye of the someone of the opposite gender you quite like. Do you go over or make the first move, or wait for them to do so?

    Traditionally it's the male that's supposed to do so, but most of the time I'll wait for the girl to initiate, and I've noticed this is the same for a lot of my mates as well.

    I suppose the risk of rejection is a lot higher for boys than girls, some ladies can be actually proper brutal in letting you know they ain't interested!

    I tend to move a little bit closer, ie. if im dancing in a group, i'll move so im closer to him. After that I expect him to come over to me...
    Actually that's not very easy to tell for most guys in a night club! You could just go and say hi?!

    I have a habit of ignoring all girls who make any kind of moves on me in clubs. One girl even came up to me and tapped my arm and I just moved away in a sort of "we seem to be in the same spacial area therefore I shall move slightly in this direction so our exterior limbs wont come into contact again" way...(I was drunk)
