Is contraception a good or bad idea when dating?
There can be no doubt that contraception is a good thing when dating. If you’re worried if carrying it will make it look like you’re expecting sex, worry no more. Any woman going out in today’s world, will expect you to have at the very least a condom in your wallet- make a joke about how long it’s been there if you don’t want to look as if you’re expecting to use it! Also, it shows consideration of your date. You don’t want to get her pregnant or give her a disease- you’re not saying you have a disease by carrying one, just that you want her to be secure and relaxed about the situation. It’s a win win.
And there you have it- the two good reasons for carrying contraception with you when dating. Pregnancy and STDs. This isn’t being derogatory to her or to other women- there’s too many cases of men sleeping around with infections for you to risk it. However nice and clean she looks, and however much you fancy her, you really don’t know about her sexual history, or who she’s been with. The diseases you can get through unprotected sex are many – and none of them pretty. So don’t go there.
There’s also another reason for Contraception- preventing unwanted pregnancy. Don’t fool yourself by saying to yourself “its only one time, it’ll never happen to me, I’ve done it before and it’ll be fine” or any variations on that theme. All of these may be true- but there’s always going to be that first time. Also she really will be expecting you to have it- if she hasn’t already sorted it out, she’ll want to know you were prepared. Otherwise, what are you saying about her? Maybe you should be looking into Manchester escorts instead.
Dating obviously isn’t always and only about sex- but the topic may well come up and its best to be prepared. So carry contraceptives on dates- be responsible, be safe and be considerate. It can only be good for you.
