Losing The Waiting Game

| Romantic | November 11, 2013

(My boyfriend is notorious for speaking before he thinks, and therefore sometimes unintentionally says hurtful things. I am his first girlfriend, and earlier that week we had been intimate together for the first time. We are both atheists.)

Boyfriend: “I’m really glad you’re not religious.”

Me: “Oh?”

Boyfriend: “Yeah, they have some policies that I don’t necessarily agree with.”

(It is obvious that he’s talking about abstinence until marriage.)

Me: “…okay.”

Boyfriend: “Yeah, I would’ve had to marry you really young. I don’t think our parents would like that.”

Me: “You do realize that you’re making it sound like you’d marry me just to have sex, right?”

Boyfriend: “Sorry, I didn’t mean it like that. You know I would wait if you wanted to.”

Me: “Well, you can’t prove that anymore.”

Boyfriend: “Touché!”
