Is it really fair for girls/guys/and every one in between to class me as ‘weird’ or odd when finding out that I am 17 and still haven’t had my first kiss yet? I have heard 1000 times that your first kiss should ALWAYS be special, and HOPEFULLY if you’re lucky with the right guy. Is that too much to ask? And instead of being embarrassed should I class this as making the ‘Right Choice’ or just being careful? Am I being too careful? I am actually quite shy and have recently switched schools. Meaning, I have only attended this public school for a year now.”
So should this reader feel weird, or is it just fine to wait until you’re older for a smooch from Prince Charming?
When it comes to your love life, things can get pretty confusing, especially when you compare it against others’ romantic escapades. Everyone seems to be moving at different paces, and with such a wide variety of examples, it’s hard to know what to do.
Which is why the easiest (and most self-satisfying) solution is to just listen to your gut. Sure, some girls can run around kissing every boy on the block and not feel bad about it. That’s fine, as long as they’re comfortable! But you wouldn’t feel at ease doing that; in fact, it might even make you miserable! Kissing is supposed to be fun, not just something you get out of the way. So why bother jumping into it if you’re not ready?
If you’re looking for the right boy to kiss, maybe first take steps to overcome that shyness. By putting yourself out there at a new school, you’re bound to meet new people…maybe even the guy you’ve been waiting for. Until then, anyone who has a problem with your kissing experience (or lack thereof) definitely isn’t worth your time.
Do you have any advice, Lovelies?
