I Didn't Wait Near Long Enough.

I thought I did good at waiting until seventeen.  But I notice a lot of people I encounter lost their virginity at 18 or even older.  I should've waited.

When I was in HS, I was the only girl that was an admitted virgin at the time. But it was like my "story" I wore it like a badge of honor. I liked identifiying with that. (I am not insinuating that this is your case). Now looking back, I find it silly to have used this as my "identity." This was such a small part of who I am as a person. I probably felt unique for it at the time, maybe more moral..although teased for it. I put far too much importance on it than I should of.<br />
You are so much more than this one thing and I know if your school is anything like mine was...Loosing your virginity at 17 is on the late end.<br />
Right now it seems your regretful because you "did it just to do it" I understand that and am sorry I can see how that is painful for you right now. You cannot change the fact it happened and there is something you learned from it, which may be helpful sometime down the road for yourself or someone you know. We all do things we regret in life. The best thing (I have found in my experience) is to accept things that can't be changed and not regret it, that is only going to make you feel bad about yourself on some level. Moving on from the experience and just accepting it and trying to grow from it is the only way I know of to not feel bad about something you. I mean this in issues like what you describe...you didn't hurt anothers feeling, etc.. Please don't beat yourself up.

I did it just to do it, you know?

yeah 17 or 18 is too young to lose ur virginity
