Dating culture is dead - instead, young New Zealand women are regularly getting drunk and cruising around in packs looking for men to have sex with.
That's one of the findings of a TVNZ Sunday investigation into the sexual behaviour of New Zealand women.
The programme makers did the story after Kiwi women last year topped the Durex Sexual Wellbeing Global Survey as the world's most promiscuous.They are reported to have an average of 20 sexual partners, double that of their Australian and British counterparts and almost three times the global average of seven.Yes, we have heard or read of someone who is embarrassed beyond measure to tell a friend that he/she met their spouse through online dating sites.Online dating is part of the problem that comes with this method of searching for relationship, as it is still not wholly embraced by most conservative or traditional societies. It all depends on your morals, values and your desire to meet someone new.Men are also feeling the impact from the new sexual tactics being employed by women.
The Sunday Star-Times' Being a Bloke survey last year found that 29% of the 5000 men surveyed felt they had been pressured into having sex or had had sex unwillingly.
Close to 400,000 New Zealanders use dating sites to find matches.
There are top dating sites in the country that cater to both New Zealanders and the general public. You will find sites for older folks looking for companionship, although in the minority, single parents can hope to find matches in another site.
Through online dating portals, you meet more people than in a conventional setting because the pool of possible candidates is widened considerably, thereby increasing the likelihood of finding romance or that relationship you've been longing for.
Online dating sites allow you to indicate from the start what your intentions are and so you do not waste time looking for a match.
New Zealanders have become more confident and are willing to go beyond the traditional way of meeting and dating such as at parties and clubs.
