My girlfriend and I broke up after 8 months. I was pretty upset, but knew it was for the best, and we have remained friendly. Then I found out that my friend had started dating her 2 weeks after we split up! I'm pissed. Should I be? Is he a friend worth keeping?
Different people – and different groups of friends – have varying rules on this one and guys in general don’t tend to be as possessive of the girls they date as girls are with them (plenty of girls think that if they said they thought a guy was cute first, their friend has no business talking to him). That being said, I’d be pissed, too. It sounds like your friend kept it from you, which is the worst betrayal of all. In other words, it sure doesn’t sound like the guy is even a friend so he’s certainly not a friend worth keeping. Still, guys aren’t exactly renowned for their communication skills so you might want to make your gender proud and try telling the guy how you feel about what he did. It’s possible that he’s someone who wouldn’t care if you dated his ex the next day and just assumed you were the same way. He may not take the confrontation kindly – people tend to get defensive when they’ve done something they know is wrong and get called out for it – but if that’s the case, you’ll have even more information for why you don’t need to be friends with him anymore.
I'm a virgin and want to wait for the right girl. I'm afraid when I find her I won't be any good at sex. Should I go and get anything I can or should I wait for the right girl?
Take it from someone who believes in the Clintonian definition of sex: losing your virginity simply isn’t that big a deal in this day and age. And most women don’t consider the fact that a guy’s a virgin a negative thing; most, in fact, would find it sweet. In other words, if you’ve been waiting for the right girl, why throw in your chips and sleep with anyone now? Virginity isn’t something to be ashamed of and gotten rid of quickly and the best bedroom skills don’t come from experience but from quiet confidence and a reliance on your own innate sexuality. The best way to prepare yourself for your sexual future is to learn how to cherish the girls you meet – nothing is hotter, after all, than that.
Is it possible for my girlfriend to get pregnant while on birth control? We’re trying to be really careful because we’re way too young to have kids.
According to Planned Parenthood, eight out of every 100 women who use the pill will become pregnant in the first year of typical use (fewer than one will become pregnant with perfect use). Pills are supposed to be taken at the same time every day and problems occur if girls miss two or more pills in a row or the pills are taken in the wrong order. Drugs – even St. John’s Wort – can impact the effectiveness of the pill so she needs to be vigilant and check with her doctor about anything like that. The only 100% safe birth control method is, unfortunately, abstinence.
