“In reality u should have sex on your wedding night, but in a lot of cases, it doesn't work that way. You shouldn't have sex with anyone that you aren't fully committed to. Having sex with someone with no commitment makes you look desperate and the guy may assume you have sex with every single guy that gives you attention. If you can’t wait until marriage, at least wait until you are both fully committed.” – Camelia
