Perhaps you still feel people are ridiculing you and maybe you find it hard to trust people or to accept if someone is genuinely interested in you.
Breaking up with one lesbian can sometimes feel like breaking up with a whole segment of the community, as a friend of mine often laments.
So I don't know how well I answered your question, but I hope that clears a bit up.
After these paths dried up, I went internet dating, speed dating, joined social groups, spoke to help lines, read self help books, and even hired a life coach. I have been on dates with different types of men to try and get a connection with someone.
I think part of the problem is that my confidence is low.
Guys are also taught more than girls to distinguish between sex and love.
This could be caused by the fact that society encourages guys to have lots of sex, but encourages girls to be "Good Girls", and that only bad girls have sex. Seeing as gay guys are the only group that has sex without girls, they are not limited by the female rate of sex.
Without meeting you or seeing you in action it is hard to know how you come across to others.
But one thing I do know is that the majority of people find it off putting if someone is too keen, too needy, too self-conscious or thinks too little of themselves.
and do they equally fall out of love at the same rate? So while they have more sex, they don't necessarily fall in love more frequently, or quicker.
I watched this show on LOGO called "The big gay sketch show" and there was a skit on lesbians at a speed dating place and they were made to look as if they fall really easily for one another and then break it off seemingly just as fast. There are several valid reasons he could have come up with this question. Lesbian culture, on the other hand, very much emphasizes emotional connectedness compared to gay male culture.
I didn’t have any encounters or relationships during my teens, which made me feel so jealous as this was something I really wanted.
