Older virgins often worry that if they tell a man about their situation, then that man won’t want to have sex with them.Yet older virgins also often worry if they don’t tell a man about their situation, then that man will freak out if she reacts in an unconventional manner to their coupling.

So dig this: If you have a stock that’s performing really, really well, you may not see the need to buy lesser-performing stocks.

But if your stock is middling along, and you don’t want to give up on it, you may choose diversify your portfolio to increase your earning potential. But the moral of the story is that if you’re on JDate and you’re getting tons of emails, there’s no reason for you to go to Yahoo Personals.

Many women who didn’t lose their virginity in their teens feel awkward and uncomfortable about their sexual situation.

Many older virgins feel conflicted and worried when they think about finding a man to have sex with them.

And while it’s great to be able to back up my big claims with statistics, I’m just gonna go with logic on this one: While I can’t guarantee the results of six months on Match.com, I can promise that you will ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, 100% NEVER meet a person online if you quit online dating entirely.

And even though Steve Carell’s character is the most lovable person in the film, and even though he’s vindicated at the end of the movie, you may have still left the theater at least somewhat uncomfortable, wondering how others might react to the fact that you’ve never had sex.

There could be any number of reasons why you are the 40-year-old virgin in real life (or an adult of any age who hasn’t “crossed the threshold”).

You will absolutely encounter your share of men who simply don’t want to have sex with an older virgin.

Most of the time these men won’t want to have sex with you because they worry you will grow “attached” or “clingy.” This fear represents lingering adolescent concerns more than an expression of any adult reality.

Many of these people are married, of course, but still, we’re talking nearly a third of the U. What all of this means is that you’re simply not as atypical as our hypersexualized society might lead you to believe.
