I’m 19 years old and my boyfriend is the same age. We have been dating for four years but we don’t have sex because I’m afraid of it.
Now he’s threatening to break up with me. I love him and don’t want to lose him.
What should I do?

Good for you for standing your ground.
You have been together for four years and it seems he has been fine with the way things were. Why the sudden change?
You should never give in to something that you don’t feel ready for just because you’re afraid of losing him.
If your boyfriend really loves you and wants what is best for you, then he’ll be patient and respect your decision to wait to have sex.
This is your life, so live it as you would like to, and make the right choices for your future.
