So youâ€™ve met Mr. Right. (Or Mr. Right Now.) Youâ€™re a good girl, so youâ€™ve waited the requisite amount of time and you just know that tonight is the night youâ€™ve been dreaming of all year/month/week/minute.
You look good, you smell good and youâ€™re wearing the only matching lingerie set you own. All signs point to go.
Youâ€™d think with this many green lights that thereâ€™s no way a lady could mess this up. Maybe youâ€™d think that, but youâ€™d be wrong. Here are just a few of the ways this could go south in a hurry:
1. Donâ€™t depend on him for birth control. Yes, he should carry condoms, but ultimately itâ€™s up to you â€” itâ€™s your body and you need to keep yourself safe. Iâ€™m not saying thatâ€™s the way it should be, but the sad fact is, even the nicest seeming guy isnâ€™t always as invested in keeping us disease and pregnancy-free. Even if youâ€™re the kind of traditional lady who insists your date pay for everything (after all, youâ€™re giving him the gift of your company), do not let stubbornness get in the way of your safe good time. And nothing ruins a good time like a below-the-belt itch or unplanned pregnancy.
