gagarin believe it or not not all teens are ready to jump into bed. most of them prefer to wait as they are so well aware of all the complications involved. well done to pagwatch's ds, tbh I am not suprised that the gf was more ready, having met some of the girls ds knows and going by his last gf. the girls seem way more mature in that way than the boys.
I was pretty surprised that she was prepared to end it over that tbh. I think you are probably right 2shoes. Perhaps she wants to find an experienced boyfriend if she feels she is ready but not experienced herself.
thanks for all your comments. I am plaesed it does not seem to have worried or upset him - I was concerned before he discussed it with me that his reaction would be to imediately 'catch up' ( also a little concerned that that would be DH's advice if he asked him ). Fortunately he thinks she is being 'immature' by making such a big deal of this. <<phew emoticon>>
I was endlessly pounced on as a teenager so I am quite pleased that he hasn't turned out like that.
But if you rely on what teenagers tell you then you can miss some terrible hurt that they are going through. They are very private beings and are liable to put a spin on the most painful of life events to spare themselves and their parents. That is what I was trying to say.
So pagwatch - well done for evesdropping even in error.
