DEAR ABBY: How should teen-age girls say "no" to sex? My answer: BE HONEST.
After seeing many of my friends regret losing their virginity, I decided I wasn't gong to make the same mistake. When I began dating Scott, I told him I wasn't ready to have sex, and if that's what he was looking for, he should go elsewhere.
Well, he stayed. And now, two years later -- we're engaged to be married! I'm living proof that honesty is the bet policy.. -- BETH PAILTHROPE, MARIETTA, GA.
