Oxonian social interactions


in Daily updates, Oxford

Emily’s housewarming party was good fun. It was surprising to learn that there are intelligent and attractive Oxford women who bemoan the lack of romantic prospects for them here. I had always considered them to be in a buyer’s market.

At the very least, it is a demonstration of the overall social awkwardness of the place. Oxford is an equation that is basically impossible to solve in one year, and seemingly quite difficult to solve in two. Hopefully, those who carry on for a D.Phil manage to do better.

It’s true – Oxford men are rubbish.

Is that because people here are busy and focused on other things, or is there another reason?

Yes, I also find that surprising.

I suspect most of Oxford’s single male population does, as well.
