Sharing personal information brings people closer together. But how do you know when you’ve gone too far—or when someone else has ulterior motives?
Verified by Psychology Today
I am still part of the V squad at 24. I guess you could say that I choose to stay abstinent because I see sex as something special that I would like to share with one woman. It seems sad that my odds of finding a virgin woman are pretty low. I know that there are many advantages to premarital sex like having greater experience and such, but there are also a few disadvantages.
Namely, partners who aren't each other's first will always be able to think back to that one partner who gave them so much great sex (forgetting of course the flaws that past partner had). This would seem to increase the chances of thoughts of regret. Furthermore, when a man ejaculates into a woman, on a chemical level, she becomes emotionally bonded to him. I want my wife to be bonded to me. Lastly, there is the chance of STDs.
I still hold out hope for the right woman to come into my life. As they say, good things come to those who wait.
