There’s no set time for hitting your first home run.
:) I’m assuming here that you’re no longer playing Little League, but you’re not yet in the major league. You don’t want to go to bat for just any farm team that’ll take you. You need a team that’s worthy of you before you even pick up that bat of yours.
You don’t want to move up to the big league before you’re ready.
In short, don’t run the bases just to run the bases.
There’s still training camp to get through, my friend. Then, once you find a good team, make sure you play with all your heart.
I don’t try to scare them, I want them to grasp the association between choosing under duress (temptation) and consequence.
I think a very safe age is when you are an adult, then it is your life, your body.
You still by the way, will have adult responsibilities.
I think the emotional impact of intimacy is beyond what some, if not many younger persons can easily cope with, and the pain of separation may be less devastating for an older person. There’s no time to start learning responsibility and judgment like the present.
(this doesn’t mean go forth and start boinking – it means go forth and use your head) I tell them – if and when you are presented with a “choice” it’s not likely I’ll be there.
