No idea. I chased down my man like a shameless hussy, hog tied him and haven't let him go in 24 years...

IMO some men need to be coerced into pursuing a partner. I think that in some instances a man's friends and/or family can be over influential when it comes to dating. I know tht when I started dating my husband we had some comedic conversations about dating and expectations. It was especially funny when my husband made declarations based on what his friends told him. For instance, 'Saturday was guys night out and don't expect to have date night on Saturday'. I sure got a giggle out of that.

Some men still feel the need to follow ridiculous advice and dating "rules" like not calling after a date for three days. That shit needs to stop. People need to feel each other out. Men and women need to meet each others needs if they really like one another and stop second guessing their own emotions.

My man chased me, but I will admit to running very slowly so that I got caught;)

To a point, I believe so.  I think he needs to know you're interested, but in my experience, those that are worth anything, like to be the ones to initiate the actual "courting".

I think so too.  Nobody wants what takes no effort to get.  Every body wants the desirable, harder to find person (or thing, actually).

I dunno. I chased mine down because he was a tad shy. Guess you'd have to poll men to get  a good idea.
