So I was at lunch with a couple of friends (all girls) and we started talking about how we look and everyone agreed that I look really innocent and all that. That's okay with me, but one of them started making fun of me saying things like:
You're like SO sheltered!
Do you even listen to rap music?
Haha Have you ever kissed anyone?
You haven't had a boyfriend...have you....
You probably don't even know what "anal" means!
But here's the thing, the girl who said this looks just as innocent as I do, but when someone asked her if she were a virgin she freaked out at me and said "Do I look like one??" When I said yes I asked if she wanted to look like a virgin and she hesitated and ended up not even answering.
So I'm just wondering...Why is it so unusual and why was I made fun of for it?? Is it such a mistake to look/be innocent? I just want your opinions on that!

I just turned 17 a week ago and I got my first kiss when I were 16. I look quite innocent as well and behave quite normal in the presence of other people. You should know that it is quite normal to have never kissed before, and I can tell that I am still a virgin as well. I don't think that's a problem because I feel totally at ease with it. However you are dealing with social pressure caused by media and other stuff. Remember that you are not different, stupid or unnatractive - but you just choose to wait for the right moment! This makes you no less of a person, and I really respect you for standing strong.2
