Sex is Weird

A boy and a girl sit in awkward silence at a coffee shop. He breaks the tension with "I googled it." Her confusion prompts rambling justification: he googled how to be good at sex because he wants her to get the most out of their first time as possible. Touched by his awkward sincerity, she asks if he is a virgin and he says yes. Upon confirmation, she opens up about a scarring past sexual experience, asserting that she doesn't feel ready to introduce sex to their relationship. The boy realizes how vulnerable she has made herself, and reassures her their relationship means much more than just sex. If she's uncomfortable with it, sex can wait. Both agree that sex is weird, relieved at last.
