    For most people this is the case. They think "I slept with them thus they love me and this means we're in a caring relationship " :facepalm:
    What!? I don't... how can you possibly believe that?

    Who the hell cares? I don't know when most of my friends lost theirs (in some cases they may not have lost it yet) and i don't have much desire to find out as its none of my business. I'm sure that most people wouldn't say no to someone simply because they hadn't had sex before if they got on really well.

    I don't think its abnormal at all, my brother lost his when he was 25 aswell. It is always better to lose your virginity to something special, instead of losing it at a young age just because everyone else has done *rolls eyes*

    Because many do. They think "I know this person for less time than any of my friends, but because we're screwing, it means we know each other enough to say cheesy **** like "I love you" etc "
    Sound familiar? :rofl:

    Its more the "for the rest of their lives" part I found bizarre. People are obviously more naive when they're young, but why would losing your virginity mean you wouldn't learn about these things? I'd say the opposite, getting experience, even if you make mistakes, helps you learn.

    Very true, but sadly most people don't learn from life and although you can see this, they chose to ignore it for their entire life. Once you get into an office environment you will see this all the time.

    So you honestly think most people go their entire lives totally sexually naive? It just sounds like everyone you know is a complete moron. I can think of a girl I know who is generally is pretty naive, but even she knows what a one night stand is. What does an office have to do with it?

    Not sexually naive, but emotional train wrecks, and yes - most people are morons.
    Who said one night stands? I'm talking about "I've known you for a few weeks, dated a few times (total of ~12 hours), which means I don't know you enough to call you a friend, but enough to start ****ing and then say we're in a deep, loving relationship." :facepalm:
    As for an office - when you start working and talking to older people, you will realise that most are **** ups no matter how bland they seem.

    Well your original post was about losing virginity, not forming short term relationships. If that's most people you know, you clearly associate with a disproportionate number of morons. I'm not saying people aren't like that, but it's certainly not the majority, and I don't understand the connection with the age you lose your virginity. I lost mine fairly late, nineteen, I don't think it changed me much, made me a little more secure, but it doesn't cause a huge mental change.

    I don't know why youre assuming I don't work? (I do).
