    Hi all,

    Right I've been single 6years, during that time I've concentrated in uni. Now I'm done with uni kinda on the look out for a chap. However I was just thinking when fella's hear how long I've been single, will it be strange/weird to them??? Or will the fella shrug it off and not be phased by it??

    i would probably think its a bit weird yeah.

    if you've been single for 6 years it probably means you'll be very rusty on all things relationshippy, which personally would put me off.

    I doubt a man who genuinely was romantically interested in you as a person would mind much that you haven't had any previous recent relationships because you were focusing on your career.

    The problem is mainly that you can quite easily have a relationship at uni and concentrate a lot on your work. The fact that you use an excuse which is almost certainly not entirely true means you might be a socially awkward person etc. Obviously the harder you work at uni the less time you have to socialise, but it is impossible for it to be 100% of the reason. But if you meet a guy and you both get along then it isn't an issue at all, so don't worry about it really

    I purposely chose NOT to have any dealings with men whilst @ university because I wanted to concentrate on my studies. I didn't go to uni to have a bf, socialise like a looney n drink myself stupid - I went to study n achieve well, which I did.

    That's slightly better however do you honestly think it would have been impossible to enjoy yourself (well, enjoy yourself more, perhaps) and still achieve well? People do talk about uni being the best years of their lives after all. But it's your choice n all that

    Yea, I heard the same thing but honestly I couldn't wait to finish and get my degree. I achieved well and got what I aimed for. I dunno if its because I've grown up or what, but the whole mentality of shagging around, smoking, drinking- partying til all hours I did when I was 18.! I started uni @ 21, finished @ 24, and in comparison to ppl on my course, I'm far more mature and actually have grown up. I ****ed up @ school/college and vowed never again to do so. So I just buckled down and got on with studies.

    Just be honest and lighthearted about it - e.g. pretend you've forgotten what to do! I think a lot of men - and you'll need the company of men rather than boys, a distinction which I'll leave to you - would be flattered and excited to be on your radar after a period of celibacy, given your ability to take it or leave it.

    It's not common for a guy to ask the girl about her past history. You could go through a relationship without mentioning your past and it is quite common for girls to refuse to talk about it anyway..
