Dear Dish-It: I Said No, Now He's Mad

Dear Dish-It,

I'm 16 now and my boyfriend took me on a date and started to feel me. I pushed him away and said I don't feel ready. He said everyone does "it" now but I don't feel ready. Since I said that he won't talk to me anymore. What shall I do????

Dear Dunno,

Last time I checked, most 16-year-old teens AREN'T sexually active - less than 20% are. So your boyfriend is wrong about "everyone doing it" and you were right to stand up for yourself and tell him NO. Sounds like he's not the right guy for you. I'd take it as a blessing that he's not talking to you anymore and take this opportunity to move on and find a guy who listens to you, respects your feelings and opinions and doesn't make you feel like you need to do something you know you're not ready to do.

talk to the person you're closest too. yes, you said you don't get close with people, but there's probably one person who you speak to more often than others- talk to that person.

Don't worry too much- it's only your first relationship- but I'd sit down with him at one point, and discuss what makes you uncomfortable, eg; if you know what I mean...
