Dating Expert Explains When To Tell Your Date You're A Virgin

Dating is never easy, and the pressure feels especially high when you're a 20-something virgin. But fear not, because HuffPost Live has a few tips for you.

In a conversation with host Caitlyn Becker, women's dating coach Ronnie Ann Ryan said revealing your sexual history on the first or second date is too much information. The third date, she said, is more appropriate because you've given your date a chance to get to know you.

"On the third date, when you have something that you're a little nervous about -- which you might be, regarding virginity -- that could be a good time to bring something up, and chances are that's when a lot of guys will be sometimes pushing the envelope and hoping to get a little something," Ryan said, alluding to sex.

Ellen Burkhardt, the 26-year-old author of "When Guys Find Out I'm A Virgin," also joined the conversation to explain why she's chosen to wait until marriage to have sex.

"A couple of factors went into my decision: I'm a Christian, so I was raised with that sort of belief system and those values and that sort of stuck with me," Burkhardt said. "Then the older I got, it just became a decision based on the fact that I hadn't felt that sort of connection with anyone."
