my first kiss
I'm 17 and never had boyfriend, not even kissed anyone. I'm not particularly sexy, well i'm not paticularly anything. In any case, two or three boys have asked me if i liked them (well, just for a "night kissing sesion" at a bar), but i've always said no cause i get really nervous and panic invades me when i realize that maybe i'll give my first kiss to that boy, at that moment. Now, when boys at a bar come to me i just say no, even if i like them. I have kind of terror to my first kiss. If i continue like this i'm never gonna have boyfriend.

What can I do?

Hi Sarah,

it sounds like you have built this up to something so territying in your mind that it is feeling like an impossibility or a horrific thing to do. Like with many things in life, in oreder to achieve things we want to we sometimes have to take a risk - this is one of those times. If you kiss a guy and it doesnt work out, it really is okay - it just means its not right with that particular guy.

My advice to you is to take a chance, believe in yourself!
