how long do you think someone should wait before having sex with their boyfriend?

Waiting a long time is a good idea because you can't ever get back the fact that you slept with him. I'm talking months. You don't know how long the relationship will last, and many teen relationships last 1-9 months. There is no right or wrong answers to this question, only feedback.

I don't think it's really about how long till having sex I think it's about whether you trust them or not? Like with my boyfriend I was only with him a month when I had sex with him but I don't regret it I loved it and I'm happy that I did.

It depends. Personal recommendation would be at least 4-6 months, but if you've known them for a while then it might be alright to have sex sooner. At 4-6 months you'll probably know whether or not you can consider him long-term material, so honestly go with your gut. Don't do it because you're horny, but when you feel like you're ready to bond with someone in that way.

When you're ready to trust yourself with him, that he's not only into sex or something like that. If he truly loves you he could wait til you get ready.
