Im a 27 y/o virgin who recently ended a six-month relationship with my boyfriend I met opn Blackpeoplemeet. The conversation was good until we started talking about our views on premarital sex. I told him that I wanted to wait until I was married to have sex of any kind. He told me that most men want sex and that he needs to feel close to the person that he’s in a relationship with. His previous relationships ended because his girlfriends stopped having sex with him. He told me that he respects my views so therefore he feels our relationship would not work. I told my mother the situation and she agreed with the guy. She jokingly hinted that I should have premarital sex or i would end up alone. She said that it is rare to find a man that will wait until marriage to have sex. Is this true and are my standards set too high? My mother also thinks that I will be missing out on a good guy for me if I do not start sleeping with these guys before marriage. I am confused and don’t know what to think. She used to always give me advice against this and that makes me even more nervous. I fear that I might end up alone if I don’t change my views. Society glorifies premarital sex and looks down on you if you are a virgin at a certain age. I keep reading articles nad books that tell me that guys like girls who set standards but is my standard unreasonable?
