Im 22 and this girl I'm seeing is 19 - we've been good friends for about a year now and about 6 weeks ago we started seeing each other - we both feel really strongly about each other and she told me the other day she thinks she's falling for me which is great! The only issue I have is that we haven't had sex yet - mainly my fault because I never seem 'up for it' which is so unlike me because i'm extremely sexual - I just feel very nervous about sleeping with her, almost like there is so much pressure on it but I know that if I don't do it it'll end up sabotaging the relationship.
Im not a virgin and have had sex countless times and never ever been bothered - in fact it's usually me that's diving straight in there - but at the minute im incredibly stressed with work and I just feel very nervous. The other night I went round to hers and she just randomly said "do you want to have sex?" I found it really awkward because I love the build up and prefer to start off by kissing and cuddling etc and then it just leads to sex - so that caught me off guard. Im also very attracted to her as well so it's definitely not that.
I'm just wondering if anyone has been through this same sort of thing or if anyone has any advice on how to combat this issue.
Any help would be great!
Thanks in advance.
