Unfortunately, the word "pursue" may have negative connotations in today's world. One definition of pursue in reference to a person is "to continue or proceed along (a path or route)." In my article, I reference the type of man (not all men) who allow the woman to pursue him. In essence, he does nothing at all to participate in dating. He lets the woman come to him; he uses her and when he's done with her, he switches over to the next woman who has pursued him.
Because he has no skin in the game, nothing really matters to him. He's like the guy at the bus stop, waiting for the next bus to come along. He'll hop on and off at will, but has no attachment either way. But if he had taken the time to pursue her along a respectful path, he would then feel more invested in the relationship. He would then be treating the woman as a person with value rather than a temporary vehicle for his convenience. He would have pursued her properly.
