As you can see, the alternatives vary for boys and girls. Why is this?
|Girls: Yes, of course! |
|Girls: Yes, but I regret it. |
|Girls: No, I'm waiting for the one. |
|Boys: Yes, several times! |
|Boys: It happens, but it's not too good. |
|Boys: No, it's not my style.|
I mean... it's just... what?!?
If I prefer one of the last three, I can't pick them because I'm not a guy? What if a guy is waiting for 'the one', he can't answer that because "no, guys just don't do that"? And a girl has to choose between regretting, which you shouldn't do, being a prude (waiting for the one) or being liberated (of course!)?
And why isn't there just a "yeah, I've done that" option for girls?
I wouldn't say "yes, of course!" because it's simply not expected of someone to do that.
I wouldn't say I regret it. Well, maybe once..
I sure as hell wouldn't say I'm waiting for the one. I hope there's not a 'the one' because if there is, I've either lost him, or I've spent too long crying over someone who wasn't him.
I resent and object to this poll and the way it is presented. You know what most people have answered so far?
Girls: Yes, of course!
One fourth of the people answering this have said that. Is this representative? Do really more girls than guys think one night stands are ok? Some real research just said more men than women are willing to have sex on the first date. Surprised?
Presenting alternatives and options in this way is misleading. It makes you believe the results are quite different from what they really are.
Separating the sexes even before you start the research, not allowing men to answer something that's not expected of them, forcing women to answer something you think they will want to answer, means you've presented results before you've started the research.
That's too amateurish for me.
