Modern day cyrano finds niche in online dating

No doubt about it: The first time a woman beds down with a guy she’s crazy about is an exciting and special time. Whatever a woman’s decision, we had to wonder: Does the double standard still exist today? They push women for sex, then blame them for having sex. Some women are happy to get down to business the night they meet; others will wait weeks or months before doing the deed.Such sites earn revenue from a mix of advertising and sale of additional options.

The marketplace metaphor may also resonate with participants' conceptual orientation towards the process of finding a romantic partner.

In other words, if a woman knocks boots with a guy too soon, does she automatically nix her chances for long-term love—or is that old-fashioned nonsense in today’s modern-day dating scene? They’re particularly stuck on the idea that if a woman hops into bed with them quickly then she must have done this with lots of other men as well. After all, if everyone can have her, she can’t be all that special, can she?

To find out, we grilled three women about the ups and downs of when they get down to business… On the other hand, I also know from personal experience that if a guy is crazy about a girl, and they move really fast, all the rules go out the window.

I know one woman who was told by an “expert” to wait 10 dates before sleeping with the man she was dating. Your sole responsibility before having sex is to figure out if he’s interested in YOU or in SEX. And if you can’t handle the emotional consequences of making an occasional mistake, you probably shouldn’t sleep with anyone until you’re in a committed relationship. “Your sole responsibility before having sex is to figure out if hes interested in YOU or in SEX.” Excellent point and one to never forget.

I repeat: Your sole responsibility before having sex is to figure out if he’s interested in YOU or in SEX. This has been my personal policy for the past three years – no committed relationship, no sex – and it’s worked very well for me.
