I’m trying to figure out if I’m ready for sex.
November 19, 2012
I don’t feel comfortable talking to my parents/guardians, but I feel close enough with you that I thought we could talk about something that’s been on my mind.
You know I’ve been dating the same person for a little while now. Well, I’ve started wondering if I might be ready for sex. I wanted to talk to you about it first, because you’ve been there for me and helped me in the past. 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. Do you have any advice?
