people who are slightly mysterious, who haven’t thrown themselves at you and have a ton of self-respect. Keeping the mystery alive is key and in order to keep yourself front-of-mind of your crush, don’t jump in headfirst – just get your toe wet and take it from there.
All the Way?
Deciding you want to have sex is a huge step, but that doesn’t mean you have to go from hand-holding to crazy boudoir action all in one night! Sex involves lots of other cool stuff apart from the act itself, and in order to feel totally comfortable with yourself and your partner, it’s a far far better idea to let things happen sloowwly! Baby steps kids!
