Cork dating scene
“You’re better off holding out for a couple of dates and seeing if he’s interested in you or just interested in sex.” For people re-entering the dating scene after a separation, divorce or the break-up of a long relationship, first-date sex can be an additional pressure, says Bacuzzi.
“It’s important to get to know someone, to determine your compatibility, expectations, personality and dreams.
Male or female, there are subtle rules of engagement that need to be observed. They’re like wall-flowers, fearful of approaching beautiful women,” says Emre Ilkme, director of Kamalifestyles.com, which runs dating boot-camps for men.
This lack of confidence among Irish males is the reason why he and business partner, Stephen Nolan, set up the agency in 2008.
Ilkme recalls a recent client; a corporate executive in his mid-30s, divorced after 10 years of marriage. This man’s confidence had been floored by an acrimonious divorce says Ilkme, and he was very negative.
