If he thinks wanting to use condoms is high maintenance, I'd love to see how he feels about the babies that will result with not using them.
If you use another form of contraception (the pill <3), it's actually not so strange if you don't want to use condoms. They're expensive and sex gets a whole lot better without them. But yeah, if you don't know for certain where his penis has been all those years, it's lovely to use them.
120 - that's great for you, but not everyone's insurance covers birth control. The pills I was on cost $16-20 a pack, which adds up to over $200 a year. I can get condoms for free from my university's clinic. Not to mention some women get awful side effects from them (mine weren't bad, but they made it almost impossible to orgasm, which was irritating)
Here in the states birth control is pretty expensive and most health insurances doesn't cover them. I had to stop taking birth control due to some pretty nasty side effects. A LOT of women have this problem. I tried the depo shot and it ended up stripping my body of estrogen. I think that if you're not trying to have kids, there's no reason why a man can't wear a condom. I prefer a loss in sensitivity over the side effects of Hormonal birth control any day. Any guy that expects a woman to be on the pill should have to take them as well.
@105, it's because you have no real idea how many other partners your significant other has had before being in a relationship with you. Protecting yourself via condoms isn't just about preventing pregnancy, it's about preventing STD's as well. Have you learned nothing in Sex Ed? Or were you in one of those abstinence only type of Sex Ed classes?
You'll be happy when you get over him, and you will fond someone who appreciete you :)
No matter how stupid and or douchey your boyfriend/girlfriend is in the end, its no fun getting hurt and their is usually always some kind of regret. Just chin up and move on!
Pretty much this. My ex was sexually and verbally abusive, stalked me for two weeks after we broke up, and I *still* was upset over the break-up - loss of familiarity (even if that familiarity was hella bad for me), and especially the disappointment - he had let me down, he was then terrorizing me, and I had wasted over a year of my life on that douchebag trying to make it work.
The second you meet a guy who respects you and treats you like a lady, this dummy will become nothing more than a funny memory of douche bags past!
