Wish I could take it back…

“I am 16, a junior in high school, and like nearly all the other girls here, I have already lost my virginity.  Although most people consider this subject very personal, I feel the need to share this part of my life with girls who are trying to decide whether to have sex for the first time.

“Sex does not live up to the glowing reports and hype you see in the movies.  It’s no big deal.  In fact, it’s pretty disappointing.

“I truly regret that my first time was with a guy that I didn’t care that much about.  I am still going out with him, which is getting to be a problem.  I’d like to end this relationship and date others, but after being so intimate, it’s awfully tough. 

“Since that first night, he expects sex on every date, like we are married or something.  When I don’t feel like it, we end up in an argument.  It’s like I owe it to him.  I don’t think this guy is in love with me, at lest he’s never said so.  I know deep down that I am not in love with him either, and this makes me feel sort of cheap.

“I realize now that this is a very big step in a girl’s life.  After you’ve done it, things are never the same.  It changes everything.

“My advice is, don’t be in such a rush.  It’s a headache and a worry.  (Could I be pregnant?)  Sex is not for entertainment.  It should be a commitment.  Be smart and save yourself for someone you wouldn’t mind spending the rest of your life with.”
