My son, who is about 22 now, is horrible with girls. He's a university student, but on the holidays, when everyone is out, he stays at home all day and reads novels. He has never ever dated in his life. He has never set foot inside a night club. He has never ever sipped on alcohol. He saves about 90 per cent of his income because he has a phobia of shopping. He hates driving because he is worried he will crash. He hates being in large crowds because he thinks others will judge him by his appearance. He tends not to wear nice clothes. When I think about it, I am quite happy with these characteristics, but some people (like my neighbor) tell me they are not normal.
I had a frank talk with him and he told me that he would like to be in a relationship with a nice girl but said that he was just too scared and shy, and that most girls he meet are not nice.
In the news today I have read about dating coaches, which cost about $3000 per session. Do you think that if I enrol my son up for these dating sessions, they will help him? They sound very expensive. Has someone here has been to one of these?
