Our OPP needs your help, here’s her problem:


Yi Slacker and Steve,

I'm 16 years old and I’m still a virgin. I want to lose my virginity as soon as possible because all my friends have lost theirs 2 or 3 years ago and always make fun of me. I’ve never had a boyfriend and I don't have great self-esteem. I’ve been talking to a guy online that’s a couple years older than me that said we could meet up but he’s not the kinda guy I would normally like. A part of me wants to just get rid of the virginity but sometimes a part of me feels like I might regret it and wants to keep it for someone special. Can you get me some advice what I should do?


What do you think she should do?

Slacker and Steve - OPP: Want to Lose My V-Card 6/15

Our OPP is 16 years old and feeling the pressure to grow up. She thinks holding off on losing her v-card is affecting her self-esteem. So much so that she’s willing to look into making arrangements to meet a guy online who’s not really her type and a couple years older. Do you think she’d regret waiting? Or would it be worse to move too quickly? What advice do you have for her?
