I'm writing this article as a follow up to the one I did on what's going on in the mind of guys who are shy and inexperienced with women. Some said that they were shy with men and several of the points in it applied to their own situation.
Others pointed out how shy women have their own struggles as well.
It encompasses friendships, family ties, bonds with neighbors and mentors and more, in addition to romantic links.
So by my definition, there are no “relationship virgins.” But okay, let’s talk about “romantic relationship virgins.” I don’t know for sure whether the number of such people is growing, but my guess is that it is.
The truth is, great, eligible, sexy guys staying virgins into adulthood is a growing trend, a new normal. You want to have sex, but you don’t want to scare women away by coming on too strong.
Also, by registering and logging in you'll see fewer ads and pesky welcome messages (like this one!
Instead I had to rely on my observations and research on what shy women go through.
Like with men, there's variation in how shy women can be towards the opposite sex and dating.
I think I'm witty, smart, kind, and a lot less awkward than my friends (my group is composed of nerds, LGBTQ, Asians, or a combination of any of those categories.) That said, that's probably a factor of why I'm inexperienced, in addition to me being busy with school and all my ECs.
I'm worried that I'll go off to college without having down anything and it'll leave me vulnerable at parties or make me a target to older guys, or I'll hold off on boys in general because I want to find the right guy to have my first kiss/relationship/whatever, which will inevitably lead me nowhere.
