Should the Man Always Be the Aggressor?


Junes Mother always told her that the man should be the aggressor and say the first words that bring the dating process into motion. So every week when her dream man came in to pay for the gas and coffee she just smiled and hoped today would be the day he spoke the special words to her. But today was no different then all the other days he walked in and smiled and that was the smile that make her weak in the knees.

She Offered to Buy His Coffee

But this day was going to be different, because June was tired of waiting and had decided to take control of the situation and get herself noticed. And sure enough when her dream man walked to the counter she said if you don’t mind I would like to buy that coffee for you? He smiled and said thank you.

He Then Offered to Buy Her Coffee

On their next meeting he offered to buy her coffee and she said thank you. And because of that little effort on her part they finally started the ball rolling and in time they both smiled while a special person spoke special words to them and they shared special words with each other.

Every day all over the world people take that little step toward someone and sometimes that’s a step that brings happiness and bonds their togetherness with love.

So once again someone does one little thing and two hearts find themselves on the same page in the songbook of life.

On many occasions in my life I have had the privilege and honor to help two people move one step closer to each other. After all I’m happy and why shouldn’t everyone else feel the same way. So maybe today you can help two people say hey and find that special thing for each other. Or make your move and smile at someone special to you. Either way will make yourself a better person and the world can always use another special person to make the world a better place for saying hey.
