Scottish dating glasgow
It was once dubbed the British capital for female singles, with the highest number of single women compared to men in the UK.
Single men in Glasgow could consider themselves very lucky with so many single women to choose from in Glasgow, approximately 40,000 more according to cited research on the British singles scene.
No one actively seeks rejection and heartbreak but, alas, it’s a side effect of dating.
Oddly, there also seems to be a Culture of Seriousness that surrounds a ‘traditional date’ over here.
Or rather, they don’t ‘date’ in the way that you and I (fellow Torontonians and people of the world at large) may be familiar with.
Over here, it seems that young men and women meet through friends, work or in a bar/club and after meeting and consuming alcohol, the newly acquainted individuals go back to someone’s flat and shag.
Although most young people have very few concerns about shagging a near-stranger, a lot of Scottish men break into a cold sweat if you ask them out for a coffee.
That's why dating sites like Scotland Social have become increasingly popular among Scottish singles.Generally, if you are out somewhere and making hot bedroom eyes with a dude, he is more than likely to attempt and strike up a conversation and hopefully ask you out. The men over here are hopeless at making the first move; I don’t know if it’s some weird cultural thing that hearkens back to the middle ages, but dudes over here seem completely oblivious.And I don’t care how many times someone says that Scottish men are just shy because I’m shy too.Many of Glasgow's singles living in the city or the surrounding suburbs or further afield, commute into the city centre for work.Like so many other cities however, dating in such a diverse and busy city can be difficult.
We did not take ourselves seriously at all while it seemed like everyone else was.
