Ok guys, I know we like to haze the noobs that don't quite get it right away.... but this saying makes perfect sense. "We chase you until you catch us" is very closely aligned with: "I will NEVER be approached by the caliber of woman I can pick up. " Women chase men in a way that is obviously active pursuit to everyone but the target. When a women dresses in the morning and make sure she wears a very flattering outfit and spends a bit more time on her makeup, because she know she will see a man who she is interested in, but is not yet interested in her, that is active pursuit disguised to not appear that way to the target. When a woman laughs at a guys dumb jokes, and brushes his arm with her breast "accidentally", and tells him how smart her is, these are active methods of getting a man to take a romantic interest in her, that are carefully calculated to not be too obvious so a man can then "pursue" her, even though she was the one that caused him to be interested in the first place. Girls will invite you over to help with computer problems or to build some an ikea cofee table and later on you find they were perfectly capable of handling it, but just wanted to make an excuse to invite you over. A woman would be a fool not to take this role, because as jjj said, the kind of person you are capable of getting with some courage and some effort is ALWAYS going to open your dating pool up to higher caliber people and the people you really want, much more so than if you just wait around and see what floats your way.
