He's not in a hurry to have sex, but admits if the situation presented itself, he wouldn't turn it down.But don't expect Adam to disclose he's a virgin on a date "unless the other person is expecting sex ASAP, which is unlikely for girls," he said."Truth is, most people see losing your virginity as a big scary thing," Adam said.Virgins have been dealing with catfish — or in our case — non-virgins who pretend to be Virgins just to get into our pants, since before there was an internet.There’s a lot of frustration among Virgins about people who pretend to be Virgins, and this is becoming a serious problem as Virgin adults become more visible and begin to seek out other Virgin adults for moral support, friendship, and yes… But these things become very difficult to achieve when every other person that claims to be a Virgin is not, and you don’t know who to trust.Surely, everyone knows you can’t trust everything you see on the internet, right?

"The idea of devoting so many nights to lame drink dates when I could be hanging out with my friends always seemed exhausting, and so against the point of living my life in the moment.""I haven't tried online dating yet because, to me, it's a sign of surrender," C. "The idea of using my phone to find love is too depressing because I already use it for everything else in my life and love is the one thing I'd like to keep IRL."Of course, most of these women agreed to never say never. "I really felt more scared about losing my tooth."Source: Mic/Getty Images A not-so-rare breed: Statistically speaking, Adam isn't that rare of a breed.Anecdotal and statistical evidence suggests plenty of young adult daters, both gay and straight, wait to have sex for any number of reasons — personal, physical, relational or religious. But now it has become a term for a phenomenon rocketed into the public consciousness by the bizarre events of the Manti Ta’o girlfriend hoax.The word “catfish” comes from the 2010 documentary about a man who, like Manti Ta’o, fell for a woman he met online based on a fabricated social media profile created by an internet predator to trick him into an emotional/romantic relationship.
