in consequence of the missive, the rain that caused Jane's sickness is due to chance, penned by mikeB in Japan
In response to your question as to whether both could be right. I believe both are right. I think that both approaches can be right, based on the people involved and the individual situation.
And I'm sure you can judge to a certain degree from experience what the possibility is that it might rain on a given day...and based on that make a decision.
But I was just following a different train of thought:
While in the waiting room at the doctor's office recently, I was looking through an issue of Men's Health (very interesting articles for me as a woman...:)and happened upon an article giving men tips on how to go about successfully winning over a woman in a bar. They basically used several different scenarios, with women of several different personality types, and how (for men) to best go about winning them over.
And I was just realizing that the basic underlying subject of the article was basically the same as JA's subject: how do you interpret the personality and signals of the other person, and based on that, what should your approach be.
Our discussion reminded me of this article and I was considering the possibility that we, to a certain degree, have the same issues nowadays also.
It's true that JA is not only discussing the correct approach, but also, and possibly more importantly, the consequences of the decisions a woman made, which was only discussed very marginally in the Men's Health article.
But one could argue, that one of the consequences for the man in the bar could be that he misses out on winning over a woman that would otherwise be his perfect mate.
For me it really substantiates the fact that the basic factors of our human relationships are just as valid today as they were then.
