a very honest and touching thread, as well as informative.
but i feel compelled to speak up for young people. we're not all sex crazy and foolish. I waited until I was 21 before I had sex for the first time, and it was my lover's first time as well. We didn't rush, it was almost a year from when we first met before it happened.
Some of us are sensible....just the quiet minority. ;-)
Thank you for this thread, my own parents divorced when I was a teenager and I never really gave much thought to what they were going through in terms of new relationships because I was too wrapped up in my own world of hurt. But I always swore that I wouldn't make the same mistakes they did of falling into a relationship that was doomed to fail. I hope I don't.
