What was the defining reason for your decision to wait? Was it your faith, your parent's influence, the social norm for your area? Would you attribute any of it to abstinence only programs?
If you didn't wait, what do you think is the main reason you didn't wait?
I didn't wait. I think I gave in to social pressure. It just seemed like the normal thing and when adults talked about abstinence I guess I just didn't think they knew what they were talking about at the time, like they didn't understand the world of a teenager. I also didn't have much of a conversation about it with my parents other than the blanket "just don't do it." When my mother found out she put me on the pill. After that it just seemed ok as long as I protected myself from STDs and pregnancy. (I was not promiscuous though - four guys all long term relationships lasting 3 or more years).
How about you and your experiences?

I did not wait. I believe it is a milestone in life and psychological development that normally occurs in your late teens. I believe its natural to socially and sexually bond with a mate around this age. I love my DH very much and I think my previous relationships give me better perspective of just how special ours is. I do not have regrets about my previous partners we were in respectful relationships at the time. Don't get up in arms...this is just how I feel on the subject.
