Hi Edel, thank you so much for reading my work, as well as all your thoughtful comments. Wow. That means a lot to me :-). With regards to your insight above, I would agree that in these cases, if someone is putting on pressure, it is generally men. Though certainly not always. I think if a person really likes someone, they will wait. End of story. It doesn’t mean it won’t be challenging. There is nothing wrong with desiring someone and wanting to have sex with them. However, if truly liking that person, they would be willing to wait. Because they would have the interest and intention of spending time with them, over a longer span of time. That is what I think :-)
