My girlfriend and me have been dating for 6 months and we are both still virgins. Last night she asked me a question that doesn't make much sense to me.  I want to wait to have sex until I'm married, or almost, and she told me that too but, last night, she said that she would have sex with me if I wanted her to, and I don't know if that's a hint that she wants me to tell her I do too. I would do anything for her. She told me she has ben thinking about it for a few weeks, and I told her I want to wait. I love her with all my heart and soul, and shes the girl I want to get married to someday. I never really thought about having sex with her until she brought it up last night and, now, I just don't know .

I understand the "great" temptation but, right now, you shouldn't go ahead and have sex if you made up your mind that you want to wait. This is one of those areas that is subject to change, however. Good communication is everything in a relationship and you need to get this settled, at least for now, in order to maintain an even keel.  Never do anything that is not right for you, nor compromise your values. I know you love her, but doing anything for her is not always a reasonable approach. That said, if you change your mind, and you have every right if you feel comfortable with the decision, make sure you use protection (no unplanned pregnancy, please) and aren't going to be subjected to her parents' wrath (if you are underage) and they find out about it. This kind of decision should be a mature decision -- as well, you want to avoid any future trouble and/or regret.
