This can help boost your confidence and make finding a new partner less frightening if the time comes.
There are certain things that might need to be discussed before you plan a life together.
It might be helpful (or necessary) to put intercourse on hold for a while and focus on showing each other affection.
Taking time to talk, cuddle, kiss and enjoy being together can make it easier to take the step when you want to move on to a more intimate physical relationship.

Your partner won't be able to support you in the right way if they do not know this.
