* The modern version of this advice is usually justified by saying [[AllMenArePerverts all men are perverts]] (thus ignoring the fact that it is ''not the case'') and they prefer to be asked out ''too much'' and won't say no often enough. So supposedly a man saying yes doesn't really tell a woman if he really likes her or just didn't have anything better to do at the time.

It's prevalent in anime, as the Japanese have [[ValuesDissonance different]] ideas of gender roles relative to the Anglosphere and Europe. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement Let's leave it at that.]]

Not to be confused with AllMenArePerverts.

This is where a guy is shown to be actively put off by a girl's aggressive pursuit of him. Conversely, if she were more [[ShrinkingViolet shy and modest]] about her feelings, he would like her more. The use of this normally implies that men want to be the ones to chase and pursue a relationship, and ''hate'' it when it looks like, for any moment, this is ''not'' the case. To put it simply: A man wants to catch a woman; not be caught.

* In Creator/RobertEHoward's ''Literature/TheValeOfLostWomen'' ConanTheBarbarian scornfully tells a woman offering herself if only he will rescue her that she's nothing special, and he could have her without fighting for her anyway.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' {{hentai}} {{doujinshi}} ''Whimsical Parasite'' has [[RealityWarper Yukari]] randomly [[TeleportersAndTransporters gap]] into the house of [[ThisLoserIsYou some guy]]. Said guy doesn't like it that Yukari has the advantage over him, [[AggressiveSubmissive and tries to turn the tables]]. In fact, nearly any scene of Yukari being dominant gets cut short either by the end of the chapter or the guy claiming that he's too tired.

** It's interesting to note that he frequently chases ''any'' animal he perceives to be a female skunk - [[HoYay even if they're not]] - but most often he pursues a shy female cat named Penelope Pussycat. Generally, everyone runs off at the mere smell of a skunk nearby, but his overly affectionate, [[CuddleBug touchy-feely]] style is often another turn-off - and then sometimes the odor is the only thing keeping Penelope away. Occasionally she's turned the tables on him by not only demonstrating that she likes him at least as much as he likes her, but also chasing ''him'' down to smother him in [[TheGlomp suffocating]] amounts of affection. Pepe, meanwhile, seems to prefer being the one who gives chase, and when he finds ''himself'' as the one being pursued, he'll run just as she ran from him. Only once did he run because of an odor; [[spoiler:at one point, Penelope - under the name Fabrette - exposed herself to limburger cheese fumes so that no smell would be too much for her so she could be with Pepe, but by then he'd realized his own noxious smell and got it removed via perfume, and when she came back she refused to accept he couldn't stand her smell]].

* Fifi [=LaFume=] on ''WesternAnimation/TinyToons'', during the rare cartoons where she's the main character instead of an extra, will obsessively pursue any reasonably attractive appropriately-aged male. This is fitting, since she's an {{Expy}} of Pepe [=LePew=], another skunk from ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' who carried this tendency.
** It's interesting to note that he frequently chases any animal he perceives to be a female skunk, and most often he pursues a shy female cat named Penelope Pussycat. While she's turned off by his overly aggressive behavior and odor, she is nevertheless attracted to Pepe and has, on more than one occasion, been shown to harbor an equally powerful desire to chase, capture and smother Pepe in overwhelming amounts of passion and romance (much to Pepe's fright, as he, perhaps because of him being accustomed to being the chaser and not the chasee, has an ironic phobia of women trying to capture him).

* ''Series/{{Mash}}'': Hawkeye meets a lovely young Swedish doctor. He does his Hawkeye thing and tries to seduce her. But he is instantly put off when, over a drink, ''she'' makes a move and kisses him.

-->'''Ladybug''': {''chuckles'') Excuse me?
-->'''Chat''': You laugh, but it's not always easy for a guy to get up the guts to use one of what you consider to be silly pick-up lines. Not everyone is as smooth as I am. It'd probably be a nice surprise, a guy getting a cheesy pick-up line from a girl. We like to be romanced too, you know."
-->'''Ladybug''': Stupid pick-up lines aren't exactly my definition of romance."
