I looked at my friends holding hands with guys between classes and having their parents drive them to “dates” at the movies, and I was certain at 15 that I was already doomed to be a cat lady.True to my tendency to dramatize everything, I was convinced that if my romantic life hadn’t started by then, it was never going to.
Thankfully that didn’t happen, because I’m awful with a needle and thread, and I’m more of a dog person anyway. I realize now that there were so many benefits to being a dating “late bloomer,” the phrase “late bloomer” being in quotes because I actually don’t think having your first boyfriend at 16 is like absurdly late in life, but I digress.

Not because I’m scared…no, actually that’s totally why, considering the fact I screamed last week at the trailer for The Woman in Black 2. Why be the first one to get cackled at by a scary witch or awkwardly grabbed by some weirdo wearing a zombie costume, when you can let your friends go first and know what to expect?
Letting your peers take the plunge into relationships first gives you a chance to sit back and take notes.
A late bloomer does not have to mean you are a 40-year old virgin or have never been kissed at age 47.
It might mean that you had your first kiss a few years later than your friends seemed to, that your first relationship wasn't until after college, or that you just didn't really grow into your looks until a later age.
If you were a late bloomer too (or are one now — ain't no shame! Here are the 21 thoughts that all sexual late bloomers had once they got out there into the wide world of dating and sex.
