On Interview With a Virgin: Will

I also found what Will said about needing permission to hit on someone really interesting. I think one of the main reasons my first boyfriend and I started dating (I was 21) was that he didn't overtly hit on me, though I could tell he liked me, and I got to decide if I wanted to make the first move. (He also can't flirt to save his life!)

But I think some girls, me included, look for a less aggressive guy. Considering the culture we're in, and the kinds of masculinities that are promoted, it makes sense that someone would want a guy who comes across as less threatening. I like to call them girl-friendly. Getting hit on is kind of a turn-off for me, unless it's done respectfully.

On Interview With a Virgin: Will

I really liked this piece. I lost my virginity when I was 20, which at the time felt like way too long to wait even though it really isn't. I'm glad it happened relatively late because I knew my body more, what I wanted, and felt more confident. I did go to all-girls high school, though, and that definitely contributed to some awkwardness about dealing with guys in college. But I also just never found one I was interested in until a couple years in!

My philosophy is they are ALWAYS flirting. That way you can be flirty back, and not feel bad about it!

(Also, because it's true.)

On Brains in Progress

I went to all-girls school. So does that mean my relating to boys synapses were pruned?? That would explain a whole lot!
