One of the very many things I like about the modern dissolution of traditional gender roles is that it's no longer weird or "forward" for a woman to pursue a man romantically. Men don't always have to initiate, women don't always have to be passive. I, for one, like being pursued... and I think Max is right, that is the right way to deal with Jamie.


(Saturday night, INT: hallway outside EB and JH's apartment)

MH: Alright, now most advice articles in... well, heck, most of Western culture will tell you that a woman's job is to flirt and hint and entice him to pursue you, but trust me - with a guy like Jamie, you're going to have to be a lot more proactive. I recommend you get up in his lap...
GU: Max, no offense, but... just... stop.
GU: You ran a great game just now, and I respect you as my friend, but, to be honest, I'm really not looking for your opinion on this one. Nicole - your marriage with John. How'd you get that?
NP: Well, I happened to mention that my period was a few days late, and the next thing I knew, he was down on one knee making an engagement ring out of two twist-ties and a dead LED. It was simultaneously the most and least romantic thing I had ever seen.
GU: We're not exactly at that point yet. How did you get him to ask you out on a date in the first place?
NP: I handcuffed him to the couch for a week and a half until he agreed to take me to dinner and a movie.
GU: ...I never thought I'd say this, but I think I'm ready to take advice on my love life from Max, now.
NP: You know, I still can't believe that cheapskate took me to McDonald's...
