Do Guys Want to Be the Hunters?

OK, so for the last squillion years, we've been told that women should take the initiative in establishing relationships. Gone are the days when women sat by the phone willing it to ring, right? Among the high schoolers I teach, the girls ask the boys out about as often as boys ask girls out. It's a brave new world.
BUT then I keep reading that if a guy is really interested in a woman, he WANTS to pursue her, that like it or not, guys are hunters and are generally most comfortable doing the pursuing.
Is this true on OLD? Is it more true of guys in, say, their 40s and 50s than it is of younger men, who were raised in a less traditional society?
I'm just wondering if I'm doing the right thing when I click on "I'm Interested." It seems almost all the guys who are interested in me are men who take the next step before I decide on them.
What's your experience?
