On Friends' Relationships, Sex, and the Ones Who Get Halfway Away

@Miss Maszkerádi I'm a 24-year-old virgin, and when some new friends of mine found out they were shocked, SHOCKED! Like, actually gasped, which undid some of the work of convincing myself that it's not a big deal. After talking about it for a little while, one of them turned to me and said, "Well, I guess you'd might as well just wait for the right guy now." She had lost hers at something like 15 to a boy she later regretted, so from her that advice made sense. And yeah, I've waited this long, what's a little longer to make it the kind of experience I want, with a guy I want? We only owe it to ourselves.

On Last Night's Chats

So, uh, after the 2008 election I was a member of a White House fan group on LiveJournal (and am only a little embarrassed about that!) which is why I still have a folder full of photos like this on my hard drive:
