Examples of choosy in a Sentence

  1. Wendy Walsh:

    Men, on the other hand, tend to be less choosy with whom they mate, so it stands to reason that touch by a stranger increases the chances for a sexual opportunity.

  2. Wendy Walsh:

    From an evolutionary standpoint, it makes sense that women are wary of being touched by strangers, women have evolved mechanisms to be choosy about whom they mate with and to fear rape by a stranger. However, touch by friends is both relational -- women tend to befriend as a buffer against stress -- and pleasurable. Touch gives a nice boost of dopamine, the 'feel-good' hormone.
