yli, when I was on my first real date, I'd left home and was Nursing at the other end of Australia in Darwin. What an eye opener!
I grew up with male friends since I had six brothers. I remember though, that girls who allowed themselves to be "mauled" by males, were known as the "town bikes". In a small Country town, everyone knew your business, so I guess the majority of us behaved as if our parents were watching us. (which they were) Even if you were engaged to be married, public displays of affection were limited. A motel room or sex, particularly on a first date, would have had the town talking for weeks and the girl and boy on the "rubbish" list. I do know that things have changed a lot, but I would rather that my Grandsons got to know a lot more about the girl before having sexual relations with her. Perhaps it is all too easy and casual now, which may account for the large number of divorces and second, third and fourth etc marriages. With the amount of casual sex now, I'd be terrified of catching a disease, particularly after I see so many not washing their hands after going to the toilets. I'd hate to imagine what is going on in their
personal hygene. I am trying to give you an idea about when I was young yli, not lecture you, so I hope you understand.
