claude
Apr 2, 1997

Salut, Je me nomme Claude et j'ai 12 ans il y a quelques mois je sortais avec un garcon, il me disait toujours qu'il voulais coucher avec moi, mais moi j'avais peur alors je disait non. Il m'a laisser et je crois que s'est pour cela. Que doit-on repondre a un gars que l'on aime? bye et merci a l'avance.

For those of you who can't understand this question, it was written in French. I am able to speak a little French, and I will help this person as best I can. But my knowledge of French is quite limited. I am providing a translation here for the benefit of those of you who do not speak French. -Rick

Translation:

Hi. My name is Claude and I am 12 years old. Several months ago, I went out with a guy. He told me already that he would like to sleep with me, but I was afraid so I said no. He left me and I believe it's because of that. How does one respond to someone (in a situation like this) that one likes? Goodbye, and thank you in advance.

Response from Mr. Sowadsky

Salut. Merci pour votre question. Premier, Je regrette que je ne parle pas Francais bien. Malheursement, je ne parle pas Francais souvent, et je sais que ma grammaire et vocabulaire en Francais sont terrible! Mais, je vais essayer reponder a votre question. Aussi, mon ordinateur (computeur) n'a pas les accents avec les lettres.

Quand on pense avoir la sexe avec une autre personne, attendre jusqu'a vous etes pret. Vous avez 12 ans, et vous etes jeune. Il est important mettre un garde des risques en regard de la sexe. Pensez des risques de VIH/SIDA, et les autres MTS (Maladies Transmitte Sexuellment). Avez la sex seulement quand VOUS etes pret. Si une autre personne vous demande avoir la sexe, pense beaucoup et pense lentement avant vous avez la sexe avec le garcon. Il est important etre qui a conscience des toute les MTS et SIDA. Si vous avez envie d'avoir la sexe, utilizer une prophylatique, s'il vous plait! La sexe sans une prophylatique est tres dangereuse! Si vous n'avez pas envie d'avoir la sexe, il y a un mot tres simple reponder a l'autre personne....NON! Si l'autre personne n'ecoute pas, dit "non" encore. Si un garcon vous aime (vraiment), il va comprendre si vous dites "non". S'il ne comprend pas, dit a cette personne, "au revoir".

Il est tres important avoir la sexe seulement quand VOUS etes pret! En regard de la sexe, attendre jusqu'a la temps est comfortable pour VOUS.

J'espere vous avez comprende ma Francais. Si vous avez les autre questions, envoyer-moi un e-mail a "nvhotline@aol.com". Merci.

Hi. Thank you for your question.

First of all, I'm sorry that I do not speak French well. Sadly, I do not speak French often, and I know that my grammar and vocabulary are terrible. But I am going to try to answer your question (as best I can). Also, my computer does not have accents on the keyboard, so accents that should be found with the words, will be missing in my answer.

When a person thinks about having sex with someone else, wait until you are ready. You are 12 years old, and you are young. It is important to be aware of the risks in regards to sex. Think about the risks of HIV/AIDS and the other Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD's). Have sex only when you are ready. If another person asks you to have sex, think a lot about it, and think carefully about it, before you have sex with the guy. It is important to be aware of all the STD's and AIDS. If you want to have sex, use a condom, please! Sex without a condom is very dangerous! If you don't want to have sex, there is a very simple response you can give to the other person....NO!. If the other person doesn't listen, say "no" again. If a guy really likes you, he'll understand if you say "no". If he does not understand, say to this person, "goodbye".

It is very important to have sex only when YOU are ready. In regards to sex, wait until the time is right for YOU.

I hope you understood my French.
