I’m trying to figure out if I’m ready for sex.
You know I’ve been dating the same person for a little while now. I really care about this person, and I’ve started wondering if we might be ready for sex. I wanted to talk to you about it first. I know you want what’s best for me, and I want to know what you think.
I really care about [insert partner’s name], and we’ve talked about how if we did have sex one day, we would want to be responsible about it. We’ve discussed safer sex and/or birth control. But we’re not sure we’re ready for this.
I know this might be hard for you to hear because you still think of me as your baby. But I am growing up. You have always been there for me, so I wanted to talk to you about this and hear what you think.
