Dating in twenties
When I first decided to write this article, I was a bit uncertain. The only guy I’ve really liked since university had a girlfriend.
No longer a preserve of the married, it seems like everyone is doing it, and everyone is talking about it. What if teenage romances kind of passed you by, and you haven’t actually done it yet?
Dating can feel like looking for a needle in a haystack.
I’m almost 5’9” and only attracted to taller men, so that rules out many guys.
He told me that would be a huge turn-off for him, and he wouldn’t date anyone who’s slept with fewer than 10 people.
Then I have to rule out the people who are already taken.
Then I have to find someone I actually like, and I hardly ever seem to fancy anyone. Then they have to be the more traditionalist type who’s happy to wait a little longer to get laid and not freak out.
I also find it a lot harder to feel a spark in a forced environment.
There’s also been a cultural shift; it’s like I’m dating in the wrong era.
I also worry about how soon you’re expected to have sex.
