I recently came across a site called Dear Cupid, which is an advice site on relationships, dating, love and sex. Someone posts a question and anyone (called Agony Aunts) can offer their own advice.
In the wild west of the Internets, I expected to find a lot of sleazy, snarky answers. But taking a quick cruise through the Q&As, I thougt it was all, well, pretty sweet.
Here's the latest virginity question and answers:
I am 26 and a virgin. I have known that I'm gay since I was 13 and I have come no closer to having a relationship in the next 13 years. Never been kissed or anything! I'm not out but I've been using a lot of gay dating websites and still nothing. I am planning to go to university to do a course to change career and I'm planning to come out then as I am away from my family. I suppose I feel bad about being a virgin at my age and I am nervous about the first time. I'm scared that I won't be very good and that my relationships will suffer because of it.
- "I dont think there is one person who has not been in your shoes that has not been truly worried about their first time..."
- "That day will come...trust me. You will find a nice guy.
- "Don't worry about being a virgin, just make sure when the time comes your partner knows and that you use the right kind of protection."
