Tara -- I should explain for the benefit of others that there is a considerable difference in dating in these times compared to yesteryear. Very simply put, it's more difficult nowadays. This came to light when my daughter, her friends, and classmates had a difficult time meeting guys who were interested in dating. There were friendship dates, group events, but not much individual dating.
It seems there has been a shift in attitudes toward dating. Many are waiting to finish school (higher education), become established in careers, and so on. The problem with foregoing and sacrificing personal relationships at an earlier age is that it becomes more difficult, and choices are more limited.
Many young people in your age bracket have not experienced the fun of dating because of modern-day thinking. I'm emphasizing this so that people don't think there's something wrong with those who haven't dated yet or have had limited dating experience. There is also more diversity -- not a bad thing in itself, but it leads to some complications, such as compatibility. This adds to the difficulty in finding someone suitable.
