I watched this show yesterday. I think there needs to be a distinction between people who have actively chosen not to have sex and those who haven't. There were several people who openly stated they were in the latter category; and it didn't seem right lumping them all together.
@dolphin_girl41 I would've thought the term "lovers" would be more pertinent.
When I was younger I noticed this huge difference between male and female psychologies. When young men see a man who receives a lot of attention from the opposite sex, they all want to hang around him, be in his company, be his "friend". But when women see this in a woman, they will say not nice things about her, say she is not that attractive, deride her if she wears provocative attire. It was most interesting. I wonder if that's still the case?

How can you be "convinced" that someone "might" be pregnant?
@lulu88 Yes. I don't think anyone is saying it is not possible, but that it is more difficult.
@em Interesting. When I was younger I clearly remember women who were taking hormonal contraceptives and were looking to later have children were told that their body needs regular breaks from those contraceptives. And intuitively, it actually makes some sense. But this was just later dismissed by the medical profession with a (mocking): the biggest side effect of going off the pill is getting pregnant.
So were they actually her frozen eggs that were used? Interested as I often come across claims that for older women egg freezing is a bit of a scam.
@cat calling out double standards is not trolling.
@mamamia-user-482898552 Funnily, I actually saw this on an episode of 'Becker' the other day. The star said: when an older man is with a younger woman, he's a pig; but when an older woman is with a younger man, she's finding her groove.
@cat why is it "a bit gross"? Anyway, I thought if the man was rich/famous being old didn't matter?
@mamamia-user-482898552 Well, the first one is being done right here. And on women's outlets I often see older women who say they are not interested in men their own age and only want to be with younger men -which doesn't bother me at all - be celebrated for it.
@mamamia-user-482898552 And calling out the double standard: older men who want to be with younger women are mocked and derided, but older women who want to be with younger men are celebrated for it.
@rush From the article
She said she matched with Perry because she thought it would be "funny"
I'm sure there was an Australian version of this show. I remember watching it.

although I’m not looking for anything serious, I’m seriously dating three of these men.
Sorry I haven't read the article yet, but as someone who went through Primary School and early High School with an unusual ethnic name, I just wanted to say something regarding this issue. This is what I hate about modern western society making fun of celebrities giving their children unusual names. It normalises mocking unusual names. Kids learn what they do from adults, but without the social etiquette of only doing it behind someone's back. This is one place they are learning it from.
