Young girlfriend

Dear Queenie,

  I’m 15 and I’ve been going with my boyfriend since last year. Now he is pushing me to have sex with him, but I don’t feel ready for that yet.

  Queenie, what can I tell him to make him stop?—Young girlfriend  

Dear Girlfriend,

  Tell him you are not ready for that yet, and if he does not stop pushing you for sex you will break up with him so he can find a girlfriend who will give in to him.

  If that does not settle the matter, send him on his way and consider yourself lucky to be rid of someone who has so little respect for you.

  I know it will not be easy for you, but it is better to break up with someone you are fond of than to let him pressure you into doing something you do not feel right about.
