The Email

Im a 21 year old college student in the South. I’m cute but I’m a virgin and I don’t know how to necessarily tell a guy about my virgin status. I haven’t been in many relationships, and I’m not saving my virginity for marriage just a real relationship no FWB bullshit. But I can’t convey that to a guy because of course he’ll want to be on ‘lets be in a relationship’ tip just to get the goodies. And most guys seem turned off by a virgin anyway. So when dealing with a guy should I even tell him I’m a virgin? What should I say when of course the topic of sex even comes up?

Stop frontin and give up the pums! LOL I’m just kiddin like Jason….#unlessYouGonnaDoit

Seriously, the virgin struggle is something that women have dealt with for years. That awkward moment when you are alone and before anything gets real, you have to tell a dude “I’m a virgin and I’m not having sex”. Obviously there’s pros and cons to the decision to let a dude know up front your stance on giving him the master key to your sacred love muscle.

At 21, You should be in your 3rd-4th year of school, so you know the game already (or should). Especially going to school in the south (and ESPECIALLY if its a HBCU)!!! Having s*x in college is easy, random, and frequent, so when dudes see a woman who’s a virgin, they may have pause initially. This all depends on their true intentions. if a dude is just trying to smash, he more than likely will leave you alone and just be “friends”. If a dude is looking for a relationship, but isn’t trying to wait for you to give it up, so he may pursue a relationship hoping that he wears your defenses down. Rarely, you will get a dude who doesn’t care and will be fine with waiting until you are ready.

Two things you have to watch are 1) becoming the hobby chick, and 2) Dudes who will just hang around until they hit, and then bounce on you. I won’t lie to you and say that i know how to tell, you have to use your woman’s intuition and scrutinize the dudes you choose to date. It’s pretty easy to get a carfax (report on a persons history) if you’re looking at campus dudes. If you aren’t than you have to be even more thorough with your examination.

I would say the best thing to do is be 100% real. Let the dudes know you’re a virgin and your stance, just like you wrote to us. They either have to love it, or leave you alone. Simple. Don’t compromise your stance for loving. Trust.
