Ask Angie: Should I, or Shouldn’t I?

Dear Angie,

My boyfriend’s been pressuring me to have sex a lot lately. And, I do love him (I think) but I’m not sure I’m ready to take that next step. I kind of want to, but there’s a part of me that wants to wait a little longer. But, my boyfriend says that by having sex, it will make our relationship stronger. So who’s right?


Dear Wondering,

Actually, it sounds like you are both partially right. Having sex will bond you two together, in an intimate way. BUT…the issue here is that this is only great if you are bonded with the right person. When that happens, you will definitely know it. That little voice inside of you that is saying that you are not ready right now, is the one that is letting you know that you probably don’t need to be bonded to your boyfriend (in such an intimate way) right now. So trust yourself, and your gut, and hit the pause button on the sex right now. Know that if your boyfriend is the right guy, he will respect your wishes to wait.
