This probably sounds stupid but this makes me a bit depressed because I feel like I’m doing something wrong

No, you shouldn't be ashamed. Not having sex with people you're not sure whether it would be right to have sex with, is definitely not a bad thing. Making the decision to get to know people thoroughly and grow to love them before having sex with them is, I'm not going to say more moral, but it definitely makes things more joyful and meaningful and less risky. Being a virgin at 19 is definitely not a bad thing in itself and it doesn't imply you're doing anything wrong. For reference, I was a virgin until I was 23 and I have no regrets about that.

I think losing your virginity is something that you need to assess. In practice, losing your virginity is entirely something that society associates with how attractive you are, for example. I don’t really think it would be smart to follow those expectations, as you should be able make decisions on your own will.

So, in short, don’t feel that you’re doing something wrong. Just see it as you are not ready yet. Although, it might be a different story if you’ve tried to lose it but couldn’t.

Don’t be silly, your sexual status doesn’t determine your value as a human being and it’s in no ones interest but yours as to when you want to have sex or not.
