So this is awkward i met my friends friends  a couple of time and we got attracted to each other. However ever I want to Take things slower and get to know him more however he keeps asking about sex and sending nudes and doing things I don’t want to happen yet.. Correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t think this is sexting as I’m 20 he’s 18.. I’m not ready yet because I know the risks. I don’t want to upset him by saying anything

any advice?

    Nothing to add, but wanted to say I totally agree with @chubbydumpling. :) Wise words.
    The truth resists simplicity.

    I agree with @chubbydumpling

    i also wanted to add that you deserve what is right and comfortable for you. Telling him may feel uncomfortable for you - but sexting also sound uncomfortable for you -  and you need to think about your needs and wants more over his around these things as two way thing that both people should feel comfortable with cause deserve what is comfortable and he should be more than okay with that and if not then def May have to think about his intentions and relationship 

    all the best!

They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    Hi @L100 :)

    How are things going? I was just wondering if you wanted to speak any more about this. 

    I think @Shaunie is spot on when she says that you need to prioritise your needs and wants. Talking about this with him may feel uncomfortable but you need to decide whether or not that's more uncomfortable than being in a position where someone is violating (intentionally or unintentionally) your boundaries.
