Dating a Virgin

Love, Sex

Does the idea of dating a virgin make you nervous? Here's why it shouldn't.

Some are waiting for the right person and others adhere to celibacy for religious reasons. Either way, I think it is important to have respect for people who make harder decisions. A date with a virgin could be surprisingly refreshing and romantic.

Dating A Virgin Can Be Sexy!

Someone who is a virgin tends to focus on the person and really getting to know them. Just because someone does not sleep with you does not mean they do NOT want to sleep with you.
