In NZ kids seem to be having sex way too young, a different problem and in a different direction that the one you've posted. I first had sex at 14 and it was an uncomfortable, awkward 10 minutes that I regret wholeheartedly, and I'd tell any young person close to me and is in a hurry to "lose their virginity" is that it's sure as hell, not a race.
Tinder and the like ramped things up for me, personally. And I am not, conventionally, a good looking person. Though I do think the emergence of the dating apps has started to affect some people's ability to socialize in person.
That was quite the read though, thanks for sharing it!
