12. TAKE IT SLOW? You might feel you are not ready for sex in your relationship. You might want some sexual intimacy, but you don’t want to go too fast. Talk about it with your partner. Talk clearly and confidently about your boundaries. Talk about what you’re comfortable with. And what you’re not. What you like to do. And what you don’t. Take your time. It is always your choice. Respect yourself. Respect your partner.
