Men like to be chased just like some girls do, however, they don't like to be stalked and bugged and nagged at while being chased.

Of course we do, it's a huge compliment to be desired.

And of course not all will admit to it, it is too new age for some.

I think they like being caught better.

Some do. I, frankly, was married before I understood women well enough to even know how to tell if a woman was interested. When I was single I was too clueless to even know a woman was trying to get my attention. And, I think I was typical. If you're going to chase him, be obvious.

That depends upon who's chasing them.

If the person is holding a chainsaw, then no. If its got to do with love, and not the stalker creepy kind, then yes.

Yes.... If but only if the female chasing is someone whom I would like to be caught by. If it's not then no.

I think most of these answers are great, but, I have to add my two cents. Biologically, men and women are wired in such a way that the man gets a lot of satisfaction from the chase and the catch. And without getting all Phd thesis on you, I think the problem nowadays between the sexes is that men have gotten lazy about this and are willing to let women do all the work. And sure, they are willing to let a woman do all the chasing, but do they really respect her in the end? Debatable.
Mating is like a dance. And women do "chase," in their own way. I am not saying woman should play hard to get. But, most of the guys I know who are real men (gasp, did I just say that??!!) go after what they want.
As a woman, I respect myself enough to let a guy know I am interested, and then let him take it from there. Of course men like that. However, I am *not* chasing him down. Because we all know the saying, if he's not calling you, sleeping with you, or marrying you, he's just not that into you.

Huh? I gave basically the same answer as sillysquids and piscesrising, and you gave both of them 2s and you gave me a 0 rating. What's up with that?

You all know what i mean anyway.

If you chase a man he will run (usually after he gets sex). If you run from a man he will chase you. It's genetic and comes from millenia of men being hunters and defenders. If you find a man who likes to be chased chances are he's lazy. Chances are even better that a man who is chased will only let himself be caught temporarily. A man who has to pursue something (or someone) will value it more when he finally succeeds and be more committed to keeping and caring for it (them).

Yeah sure. Not like, playing hard to get to be chased, but pursuit on some level is nice, it shows interest and that makes things easier for us. Which is always a good thing for me.

Maybe not "chased" but once I'm caught I wouldn't mind if we shared the pursuit once in awhile. Seems like 99% of every relationship is him make'n all the moves and her deciding when it is and isn't ok. Might be nice to reverse that role once in a while.

To be pursued when he like you..or desires you is one thing...but I really think it is a built in quality for the man to be the one to chase...'the thrill is in the chase and in the conquest'.

I like to know that either she is attracted or wants my company and cares about me. If she fails to contact me, then I would think she doesnt care
