I am 19 years old and I have been with my girlfriend for 6 months. 3 months into my relationship my girlfriend said she wasn't ready and we haven't mentioned it since. We've been honest to our friends that we haven't had sex yet when asked. Some of my mates laughed and said "why haven't they had sex yet" and "why doesn't she want to have sex" they though that it was strange that we still haven't done that. Is it odd that at this point in our relationship we still haven't had sex?

Let her initiate it, ignore your friends, go at your own pace.

They say things like "when is (my name) going to have sex with (my gf)? When he's 30 years old!" and they all laugh.

Set a boundry by gently telling them you are not ok with this kind of behaviour and joking about your private life. If they dont respect it they are *****y friends.

They will know that I am sensitive about it though. Maybe if I ignore it or laugh along they will stop mentioning it.

U should be able to tell ur friends how u feel about their bantering without feeling like you’re being left vulnerable before a hoard of lions in the process. Banter stops being funny and friendly when it hurts you, and they should acknowledge that. In the meantime, I’d ignore them. You have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of for respecting your gf’s boundaries.

If i were You i would question the friendship in the first place if you are afraid of them knowing you are sensitive about something. No matter what it is.

Nah, that’s like the worse thing you can do.

Don’t let your friends violate you like that man. When they say it again, proper get serious and say “we’re not ready yet, and that we are going at our pace, what’s the issue? mind your business”

See what they say. Don’t do all that laughing along stuff because they will think that you are laughing at yourself. They’re not laughing with you, they’re laughing at you.

Exactly. It is a great thing this guy respects his gf and doesnt do anything stupid despite people around him pressuring him to have sex with his gf.

Have you spoken to your girlfriend about since then? She might be ready now?

I find it odd that they asked about your sex life in the first place. You should probably find more mature friends.

I agree and I don't think they know how they feel. I think that they feel my situation is a joke to laugh at.

Maybe I need to be more serious about it and show that I don't find them laughing at it funny. I do think now that they are laughing at u and treating it as a joke.

I'll always respect my gf and I'll wait until she is ready. I won't be pressured.

They are good lads actually but they can be immature sometimes and like to show off.

Perhaps because they think we should have done it by now?
