Recently, a friend met a girl he got along with very well, but unfortunately got turned down by her for not having been in a relationship before. “Does experience matter?” he asked. I didn’t have an answer for him. I usually meet equal number of people who’ve been in relationships, and those who haven’t. So, personally, “experienced” or not, it’s never made a difference to me as an outsider.
Loved this piece! I think I'll read through everything you've written now!
