“Please help! Men refuse to date me because of this”

"Please help! Men refuse to date me because of this"

From a female blog reader:

I’ll be 27 by the end of this year. I relocated back to Nigeria last year. Before i came back i had a thing with this guy for close to 2 years. We weren’t dating but we had mutual feelings. Had my first sex with him when i was 25, he’s the only person i’ve been with. We ended things because i was moving back home and my parents didn’t approve of a white guy.

When i came back to Naija i decided to be celibate with i get married but i realized when i get into a relationship and i tell the guy i’m keeping myself till i marry but i’m not a virgin. They’ll leave and say they only accept that excuse from virgins. Sex has a deep emotional connection for me. It was a challenge for me to move on from the other guy that’s why i don’t want to do it anymore unless in a marriage. Also i don’t want my body count to be more than 2. Its already 1 so the other 1 has to be my husband. I’m i wrong for having this principle? because most naija guys don’t seem to get it.
