I've watched a lot of episodes of First Dates, the NZ version and others. It seems that the success ratio of dates is about 50% and of the ones that aren't successful, probably 9 times out of 10 it's the woman doing the rejecting, often with words "You're a really great guy, but..." I understand why many of the women do say no to another date but isn't it frustrating to watch as a man? Guys who display too much keenness too quickly fail to arouse sexual feelings within the lady while those who behave like a gentleman but without the necessary charm and humour also end up in the 'friend zone'. Most of the rejected dudes are good guys who deserve a decent woman but they don't know how to make a woman feel attraction (i know from experience that it's a difficult art). Im guessing its reflective of the general population but wouldn't it be great if there was a bit more balance in the rejection ratio?
