The chance of you finding quality people to date is definitely achievable. Jerks are there to show you what you don't want in a relationship in order to teach you to identify what you do want. For example: if you're in line at the coffee shop ask the person you are interested in what they have tried on the menu?You may not always feel like talking to new people and it will take some effort to move past that inertia, but the rewards will be worth it. There are many dating services out there, some connect people by personality likeness, others by common interest, and each has various screening tools.Just like with your studies, you have to balance classroom lectures, with laundry and eating and sleeping; so it is fair to say you can learn to balance a social life.
Women who are older and have not lost their virginity or dated can face many challenges, including those misguided perceptions of others.
In a society that is far more open talking about sexual experiences in general conversation, those without such experiences can feel they have little or nothing to contribute.
Or, perhaps dating and socializing has felt awkward. You don't have to go alone, drag your sister along if you need courage to get started. Everyday you come into contact with people you don't know.
The truth is the longer you go down this path of not dating; the harder it has become to start. Doing the same thing every day makes it unlikely you will meet or notice someone new to start a relationship with. Go to a different coffee shop, go to the library and sit at a table that has room for others to join you. Which means everyday you have many opportunities to meet and talk with people, if only briefly. To do this you'll need to learn to trust your instincts and act on your first impression.

As a dating coach, I have often heard people say they are looking for their "soul mate," as though this elusive person would be the answer to avoiding heartbreak and disappointment.
Some people may think that a woman (or man) who is smart, educated, caring and still a virgin in her late twenties or early thirties is unique, or worse abnormal.
You may be surprised to know that according to a Center for Disease Control and Prevention report, 7 percent of unmarried women between the ages of 25 and 29 have never had sex; 5 percent of unmarried women between the ages of 30 and 34 are virgins as are 4.3 percent of women between the ages of 35 and 39.
