1. “It sounds dumb, but I’ve waited this long because I haven’t found the right person to be with yet.” — Brooke, 26

2. “In high school, I was a huge nerd. Not a lot of people found me attractive. I guess that mentality has stayed with me ever since. I haven’t had the confidence to lose it yet.” — Matt, 28

3. “For me, college was all about the work and my classes. I never had much of a social life and so, I never really met anyone who I potentially could’ve slept with.” — Dave, 23

4. “I had a purity ring the second I turned sixteen. While I don’t believe in saving myself for marriage anymore, my religious family’s opinions definitely haunt me to this day.” — Rebecca, 30

5. “I dated a guy for four years. When I was finally ready for him to be my first, he blurted out that he had slept with a woman at his work. I’ve been scarred ever since.” — Chelsea, 24

6. “Growing up, my parents were very strict. I never did anything wrong. Ever. Losing my virginity at an early age was just out of the question. And even now, I feel like it would disappoint them. — Orion, 25

7. “I haven’t had a boyfriend since my junior year in high school. We never made it past second base. In college, I fooled around here and there but, every time he would get past my boobs, I’d freeze.” —  Lisa, 21

8. “I always wanted my first time to be special. And to be with someone I truly truly loved. I just haven’t found her yet.” — Steven, 22

9. “Losing my virginity was never one of my top priorities. People act like it’s this huge thing, but I’d rather focus on more important stuff, like my career.” — Jake, 31

10. “I’m the world’s pickiest person. I’m not going to settle for some dumb, immature frat boy to take my v-card. I’m sorry but, I’m so much better than that. — Megan, 21

11. “A lot of my friends have lost their virginity wasted or high. Some of them don’t even remember it. I think that’s sad, and I’d like to lose mine with some dignity.” — Lindsay, 24 TC mark

You look back and you just feel stupid.
You can’t forgive yourself for falling
or believing all the lies.
You reread every text.
You relive every memory.
And it all starts making sense —
he never wanted love.
He only wanted attention.
He only wanted validation.

“It’s just wondrous how every time I go through some emotional trauma, your posts are so relatable and it gives me so much hope. I love the writing and the photos. It’s all a pleasure to read. I can’t thank you enough for it, really.” — DM from @ThoughtCatalog Instagram follower

    I have to respect someone that maintains their virginity these days. It seems kids want to get rid of their virginity as fast as possible like it is some horrid disease.
