That is what my friends and I call each other. We are always there to support one another.
Let me tell you a story of how they helped me out.
This happened when I was still in grade 11. All of them had started dating and also having sex. I have dated before but we never had sex.
I started dating a boy named Musa, we would see each other at school every day and sometimes on weekends. He was very sweet always made jokes. We used to kiss but I always stopped him because I was not comfortable.
One day he called me and invited me to his home. I was a bit scared because if it is just him and I, we would have sex. I was not ready for it. In the past, some of the boys dumped me because I didn’t want to have sex with them.
When I got there we went to his room and he told me that he would like to have sex with me. I told him that I was not ready and he got upset. He began to tell me that I don’t love him and I'm not serious about our relationship. I was hurt, I left as soon as he said this. I told my friend’s about it and this is what they said.
Don’t do it if you are not ready.
No one has a right to force you to do something you don’t want to do.
If someone loves you they will wait till you are ready.
I am happy that my friends understood and listened. Such people are needed.
What would you have done if you were Kekeletso?
