A Question I Wish I Didn’t Need To Ask

Filed under: Dating,Personal — by teofilo @ 10:18 pm

So just how big a problem is virginity on the post-college dating scene?



  1. The guy I dated right after I graduated college was a virgin. My best friend had a two-year relationship in grad school with a guy who was a virgin. (He kept his status, out of anxiety, for the full two years, which is a different story. But it didn’t affect her interest in getting together with him.) I’ve had other relationships with guys who hadn’t been with anyone in years. Not that big a liability.

  2. I agree, not a big deal. I mean, I’m sure there are people who would be freaked out by it–there are few things on earth that don’t freak someone out–but I know plenty of fellows who left college as virgins and had a perfectly fine time of it afterwards. Plus, “I’ve, um, never actually done this before” uttered with a smile, when things are moving along nicely, seems to me to be extremely charming.

  3. I didn’t become a non-virgin until a few weeks after college graduation. Once it occurred, the loss of virginity proceded as well as could be expected and wasn’t really an issue in the relationship. I knew one guy in grad school who finally got laid in his third year. Again, my impression was that virginity itself was not the problem in his relationships.
