It sucks to be a male virgin in our society. But here’s the $10,000 question: should you tell her you’re a virgin, or not? (Answer: probably not).
A reader writes in to ask whether to discuss your virginity with a girl you like:
Been a reader of this site for many years and, suffice to say, this site has really changed my life. I’ve gained confidence, I have developed a strong social network of friends, but, ironically, I have still never slept with a girl or been in a single relationship. I’m still young (20; I started reading when I was 15 or 16), I know, but the concept of male virginity scares me. I was wondering if you guys could touch on the subject, mainly:
(1) Does male virginity matter to woman?
(1a) Regardless of the answer, how does one carry oneself, how does one sell oneself?
(2) If you could talk about male virginity in general, and what it means for us, as men, today.
(2a) This could be, interestingly enough, tied in to modern gender roles, i.e., what it means to be a man in today’s Western society.
Also, just a little background: I’m currently serving in the military (in Israel), and thus it has become very hard to meet new women, and I, and the women I meet, are often swamped for time.
Was hoping you could also do a short piece on meeting women when you serve in the armed forces?
Thanks in advance,
This is a question we get often enough on Girls Chase.
So, let’s answer it.
