Posted February 13, 2018 12:12:11With a girl on the other end of the text, you might think that they would be having fun and have a blast.
But, according to research by a University of California, Irvine researcher, that isn’t what happens.
“In a survey of over 4,000 college students and college-age adults, only 2 percent said that they had gotten any serious sexual interest in a female in their group,” said the report.
“This study suggests that while it is important to understand and acknowledge the differences between boys and girls, the sexual dynamics of a date may be more fluid than we realize.”
This means that you may not be getting the best sex out of a relationship if you’re looking to date a girl who’s not into you, or if you feel that you are in some way unattractive or not fit for dating.
The report also suggests that men and women don’t really get along.
The researchers found that a “significant proportion of college students said that women are more likely to judge a man’s ability to have sex than a man would be to judge his ability to find a girlfriend.”
They also said that a significant number of men have a “negative view” of women who don’t “get it” or who aren’t into them.
“There is a large body of evidence that suggests that gender stereotypes and social expectations can be problematic for women and men,” said study co-author Dr. Amanda Treadway, a sociology professor at UCI.
“The fact that college students are particularly susceptible to this type of stereotyping and social rejection is an area of ongoing research that we will be investigating further.”
