Dear Embarrassed,

First of all, you should not be! Embarrassed, that is! You are not the only one in this school who has not lost their virginity.  Please don’t feel like you are alone in this.

The thing that matters most is the fact that you have stayed true to yourself.  There is no specific timeline for how, when, and where things should be done in your life.  Everybody has their own timeline, and all those around you should respect this.

What is important is that you are comfortable and happy with the decisions you make! If you were to have sex just to fit in, you wouldn’t be happy with how you felt about yourself because it’s not you and not the right timing.

Sex is not a little thing, especially losing it for the first time! You are making it something bigger than it is.  You should feel comfortable with the person you lose your virginity with.  Whenever and with whomever you decide to do this, make sure you use protection.

No matter when you decide to take this big step, just make sure you are comfortable and take your time in making the decision! There’s no rush.  In the end, it will all be worth it.  It all worked out for Steve Carell, didn’t it?
