Anonymous: Hi, one small question. Is it wierd that I've never had a girlfriend nor had sex by the age of 15? It feels like many other of my classmates has.
It can feel like everyone is in a relationship and engaging in sexual behaviors, but actually studies show that by age 15 only 13 percent of people have had sex. So really, those teens not engaging in sexual behaviors are in the majority. And it is not “weird” at all!
It can be hard when you want to be in a relationship and it feels like everyone you know is in or has been in a relationship. It can feel lonely. But, waiting for the right person to start a relationship with, most people would agree, makes the wait worth it.
