I've been dating this guy for a couple of months (but we know each other for years), and I really like him and all.
He said once that anything related to sex is my choice and nothing more, period.
But I feel like we should talk about it and decide together. I don't think he doesn't want to have sex with me or anything, at least I hope he does, I just don't know how should I bring this subject up.
We have very little time to be together, and I want to be alone with him so badly, arhg.

Help please [Frown] [Frown] [Frown] [Frown]

Hi Lola! [Smile]

You are right that this is something you should decide together, and the only way to do that is: talking. Good communication between partners is so important, even if you are not sexually intimate yet.

How about asking for a little time alone with him to have a good talk about how you both feel? I know that sometimes starting these conversations can be difficult but I think it's the only way to have your answers. [Smile]


I'm going to leave these links for you, I hope you find them helpful:
