Who Should Make the Move? A Question for Both Guys and Girls.

Seriously, this issue has been popping on my head for some time now. Currently, I'm in no relationship and as what my mind keeps telling me, I do not have the time for it. But for those who are single and considering on entering into one, I wanna ask both your opinions: who should make the move?

I do not intend this question to be in the context of who should ask someone to be his/her partner, but what I want to know is whether who should establish the connection first: the boy or the girl?

Even til these days, the most prominent condition I see is that the boys are the ones who notice the girls first. Then, they get to know her by spending time with her and the likes. But, the relationship they form can go two ways (especially if the guy sends signals from the beginning that he likes the girl): either 1.They proceed to being a couple or 2. They melt into being strangers once more. However, there are cases wherein the relationship remains in what I personally call the "stagnant mode" where the two neither lose the other but they do not move to being more. With some situations that came into view, those that keep the relationship even if it's getting nowhere are the girls. At first, when boys are the ones who keep chasing, the girls are the ones who try to avoid (based on the situations that I know of). However, as time passes, the girls are the ones who now chase after the guy. They keep on talking to the guy and at times, they are the ones who do something in order to be around the guy. And that's where I need your opinions people.  

Should the girls be the one to keep the relationship? Or should they step down and let the boys be the one to think of means to keeping it? Should they keep it stagnant, move on or just let go?

I'm not saying that the guys are doing nothing, but when it comes to effort, the thing I see today is that the girls are the ones who keep on stopping what they do just so they can be with that person, especially if she begins to develop some feelings for him. I don't know. Maybe I'm still living in the century where girls just sit and wait for the guy to do everything but today, it's different. I'm not dissing on either parties, I just want to know. 

I'm really open to answers from both sides because I am really confused. I do not intend to start a debate between males and females but I just want to learn what your opinions are considering this. This may not be such an issue but I'm just really curious. And because of this, my comments box is totally open and you're free to post your opinions! Hoping to hear a little enlightenment from you guys.

Staying Positive, Keeping Positive: How To Get Through A Tough Day

     These days, I have been feeling really down because of certain events and at times, it really gets to me and by the end of the day, I feel very sad. I can't do anything right and by the end, I just sit down and stare into space. However, I was going through my planner, I found this step of managing stress and I decided to try it out:

Take perspective, express gratitude: Identify three to five things to be grateful for daily (even the smallest things count). While stressful moments are demoralizing and can make you feel like the world is ending, you have surely gone through many more uplifting moments. Be thankful for those.

     Having read this, I immediately jotted down the happy things that happened that day, and indeed! It does help uplift the spirit since you would have never thought that there are still good things that can come up from such a bad day. As such, I always do this step every day, whether I'm experiencing  a bad or a good one, in order for me to keep on having a positive outlook on life and to not let that day bring me down.
