Simone's Relationship Story
I knew I wasn't ready
I was 14 years old when I first lost my virginity. Actually, to my friends I had already lost my "V-card." I knew I wasn't ready, but I felt I needed to do it in order to fit in with the group of people I was associated with. I was going into high school, and I had been with my boyfriend for a year.
After that I was labeled every name in the book - from whore, to slut, to the classic skank. To this day I regret that I ever lied to those people who I was so desperate to fit in with and are now either pregnant or have some type of disease.
I'm now 16 years old, and I have almost completely gotten rid of my former reputation. I no longer hang out with those people from my middle school past. I have befriended people who don't judge me by my actions and are friends with me because of me as a person.
Also, there is life after mistakes. I no longer talk to the person I lost my virginity to but have moved on to my current boyfriend, and I am not forced or feeling pressured to have sex.
