July 25th, 2005 | I've
been carrying around this clipping
from my friend's Cosmo for a few
months now, it's from their ASK
HIM ANYTHING column:
Q. I've been
with this guy for two months, and
we're really into each other. There's
one problem, though: He keeps pressuring
me to with him, but I'm
not ready. I want to wait six months
to make sure it's right. Unfortunately,
my man thinks that's ridiculous
and is getting annoyed, but I'm
not about to change my rules. If
he liked me enough, wouldn't he
A. Let me make
sure I read that correctly. You
want him to hold out for six months?
You've heard of dog years, right?
Well, there's also such a thing
as guy years—and six months
of waiting for sex feels like two
years to him. See, a guy needs sex
as part of a balanced man-diet.
He needs it like he needs calcium,
iron, and buffalo wings. If a man
isn't getting his nutrients, he
turns into a cranky, whiny baby.
And do you really want that disaster
on your hands? As long as you don't
have any issue with premarital sex,
I suggest you bump up that due date.
After all, you say you're really
into him, and it's already been
two agonizing months—so what exactly
are you waiting for? I mean, what
are you going to learn about this
dude in four months that you don't
know by now?
comments: Even if the girl doesn't
have "an issue" with premarital
sex, why does she have to sleep
with him now if she's not comfortable
with that? I feel like all this
so-called "advice" is
about just doing what the man wants
and becoming their sex objects,
even if it's not actually good for
