When your ‘boyfriend’ says you’re cute, don’t respond with a hug

Posted November 07, 2018 15:03:03 When you’re dating someone, it can be easy to get caught up in the idea of how they are ‘looking’.

But in reality, your partner might just be showing you off.

“I don’t have any idea what it’s like to be a woman,” says one new partner, who, like many others, is single.

She was speaking on the condition of anonymity for fear of being bullied by her friends.

For many people, their partner’s sexual interest has little to do with what they look like and everything to do, according to research by a leading research organisation.

And while the majority of people feel comfortable talking about this, it is not easy to talk about it with someone who is actually attracted to you.

“You have to be willing to be open about it, because if you don’t, it doesn’t make it any easier to discuss,” says Rebecca Sainz, a senior lecturer in sociology at Sydney University.

Sainze, who has written a book on the topic, says the “feminist assumption” that “women are not sexually objectified” is still “in place”.

But she warns that this “perceived power dynamic” is often more harmful to the relationship than it is beneficial.

“We’re seeing a lot of young people who are struggling to define their own sexual identities and the social stigma that comes with it,” she says.

“When they are dating someone who has sexual interest in them, they are often more hesitant to express it.”

So what’s a woman to do when she’s dating a guy who seems sexually attracted to her?

There’s not much advice.

While some may have the courage to say something, others may choose not to, and some may simply not feel comfortable sharing their sexuality with their partner.

“If you feel uncomfortable about being honest about your sexual desires, then you need to be aware of your own feelings and try to minimise them,” says Sainzy.

“Some people will say, ‘I’m not going to talk to you about it.

I’m not interested’.

Others will say that they’re not attracted to me, but don’t want to talk.”

While some people will tell you that they don’t like you, others will not say anything, because they don, too.

“It’s up to you to decide whether you want to do that or not,” says Ms Sainzen.

“But you can choose to be honest about how you feel.”

Sainzi says that the more comfortable you feel with your sexuality, the more likely you are to be able to accept your partner’s feelings.

And if you do feel comfortable with your partner, she says it’s important to “talk about it openly”.

“For some people, it’s more of a risk to talk openly about their sexuality,” she explains.

“They may feel that they need to suppress their sexuality in order to get through life.”
