The PI and AH forums always have a plentiful supply of topics regarding both men and women not being able to get a gf/bf, still being a virgins, afraid they'll end up alone etc. The media is bombarding us with sexual imagery and telling us we should all be swinging from the chandeliers in our mad sexcapades.4. Online dating is only for weirdo's who can't "get" anyone in real life.8.
Many of the varying topics that come up in discussion are that:1. If you're a virgin over the age of *insert age here* you're a saddo.9. What I'm trying to start is a general discussion with regards to the forming of relationships both loving and sexual in an Irish context. In general we don't do the American "dating" thing of asking out randomers on the street yet we seem very adept at scoring randomers in a drunken state at pubs/clubs etc and trying to build a relationship on a one night encounter.
I'll add more later if anyone else joins in the discussion but for now I'll leave it at that.
And btw feel free to post whatever your thoughts are on the general issue.
Like with men, there's variation in how shy women can be towards the opposite sex and dating.
This article will talk about that, with more focus put on the issues that are unique to shy women.
This piece was a little different to write for me, since being a guy, I didn't have the benefit of being able to draw on my firsthand experiences to inform my points (though you'll still see me interjecting a male perspective in parts).
Catholic guilt / social taboo's is the a reason for damn near every piece of odd behaviour.7.
If you're single there's something wrong with you There's loads more that I can't remember off hand, please feel free to add your own. Sex (from my experience anyway) is not openly discussed unless we can do so with some anonymity but once we can it's all go because we're obsessed with finding out what others are up to and what we're missing out on.
