According to this video we do. If you ignore the narrator's condescension in the first twenty or so seconds, it's also an interesting watch for when you have a spare ten minutes.
Naturally, as a single-by-choice Goth, I have to disagree with some of the points made in the video. Firstly, that we're always in couples (with another Goth, apparently.) I've never dated another Goth, I don't even know many in the real world. There is a common misconception that Goths only ever date other Goths, but that's simply not true. For example, I've only ever dated nerds. I have nothing against other Goths, but I chose not to limit my choice of partner by their musical tastes and aesthetics. Of course, for some people this is a bigger issue (particularly for those of the "music is my life" variety) but it's not true for everyone.
But that's not all the video has to say. Later on, you meet a couple Goths who try to explore why they like dating Goths. One of the Goths in the video says that he thinks that Goths have a "more romantic outlook on things," and that might be part of it. To many non-Goths (I'm using my friends as a convenient sample here) would find it kind of silly to be given roses by their beloveds, while some Goths (including myself and some of my Goth friends) delight in being given black and red roses.
Then, there's the mention of Goth males being "in touch with their feminine sides." While this is true for some Goth males, I protest that this is true for all of them (particularly Goth males who lean towards the Rivethead or Industrial looks.) Then, to say that being in touch with your feminine side makes you essentially a better lover isn't exactly true either. It might make you more romantic, as some of the romantic gestures given by Goths have feminine connotations (again, flowers) but only if you are a romantic person as well as a feminine one. However, the man who mentions this does later discuss make up which, whether we like it or not, is considered a feminine thing. However, since he uses it to bond with his girlfriend, it's a big positive in his life. I say go for it! That is, more than likely, an experience that fewer Non-Goths have than Goths do.
And then there's the discussion about if we're more sensitive. Anyone who has had to deal with in-scene drama will tell you that not everyone is sensitive about each other's feelings, but we're certainly sensitive about our own! The whole issue about "understanding" your partner is something huge in pop culture, so maybe it's easier to understand Goths? Maybe. Not all of us wear our hearts on our sleeves, as the saying goes. Some of our hearts are buried underneath floorboards or being carried around by widows or stuffed in jars filled with dirt. I think we can be as complex or as simple as anyone else.
The last issue I have with the video is that it is implied that it's easy for Goths to find each other. However, if you're in a small town like I am, you're more than likely going to be stuck in a long distance relationship if you really want something with another Goth. The only kind of social scene that makes it easier to find Goth partners is a thriving one, which many people don't have. In that scenario, it's much more usual to find a Goth dating another non-Goth.
In general, I think this video is kind of cute (the little video clip montage of all the Goth couples was adorable) but it does miss a few pointers. The only reason that I think Goths might have an easier time with relationships is a built-in common interest that you can build off of. It doesn't have anything to do with femininity, or sensitivity, or romance. What do you think?
