Advice - February 14th 2018, 11:54 AM

Hello!!! So, Iím 16 and I have a boyfriend and we have been dating for 9 months! I love him and I love our relationship! The problem is that by best friend is dating a boy, and they have been dating only for a month, but they have already done more things in a month and me and my boyfriend in 8!! And by things I donít mean having s*x but they have touched each other in a sexual way (if you know what I mean 😋 while we never went far from kissing, and I guess I would like to do something new!

Im not jealous of my best friend or something, Iím just afraid that at some point our relationship just gets boring, but I donít really know what to do and if I have the courage to do it because we never talked about that kind of stuff and Iím afraid of his reaction, I guess.

Also, he has never been able to take the initiative in anything, I always have to make the first move and I just wanted this time to be the other way around.
What should I do? Please help

Hey there,

I think that all relationships move at different speeds. Just because your friend has done more doesn't mean that there is something wrong with your relationship or that it is boring. If you want to try and do a bit more in your relationship it would probably be a good idea to discuss it with your boyfriend. He might not want to push moving forward because the two of you have not really discussed it. I think that knowing when to move forward, in regards to intimacy, can be difficult for a lot of people. It is possible that talking about your desire to move forward would help your boyfriend express his own feelings and desires. He might want to do more things or he might not. The best way to figure it out is to discuss it with him. It might be worth it to discuss the issues he is having with initiating things. There are a lot of possibilities as to why he has not and it would be best for you to hear why from him.

If you and your boyfriend decide to move forward and try more things please consider utilizing protection if you two start thinking about having sex. I think that it might be a good idea for you two to consider keeping some type of protection around because once you start experimenting it is possible that you will want to try a bit more. If you are unprepared in regards to protection (condoms etc) it could lead to a lot of issues.

Best regards.
