Is Your High School Grad Socially Prepared for College?

Wondering what to give the young lady in your life who’s graduating?

What better choice than a gift that imparts knowledge, draws inspiration, and sparks motivation? 

My book, 7 Secrets Guys Will Never Tell You:  A Teen Girl’s Guide to Love, Sex and Relationships, would make the perfect gift for any high school graduate (or middle school for that matter). 

It’s the preparation every high school grad needs BEFORE moving on to the next chapter of her life.

Especially if that includes college.

It’s all in the preparation

High school grads need to know how to navigate an environment where they’ll have newfound freedom, a party scene complete with exposure to drugs and alcohol, and let’s be real—plenty of opportunities to have sex.  

So often as loved ones, we focus on our high school grad’s physical preparation for college (i.e., comforters, laptops, clothes). 

While those are all great and needed, we often overlook their social preparation, which is equally important to their college success. 

And this is a critical time when a lot of poor decisions are made.  

As was the case with a young lady I interviewed for my 7 Secrets Revealed Masterclass who got pregnant two months into her freshman year. 

It was the typical scenario of a college freshman with low self-esteem being flattered because an upperclassman guy “picked her” instead of the pretty upperclassmen girls. 

The only reason she agreed to have sex with him was because she didn’t want him to think she was a “lame freshman.” 

His strategy worked like a charm. 

But pregnancy isn’t the only issue girls in college face when making unhealthy choices.

The CDC estimates that 1 in 4 sexually active adolescent females has an STD, and half of all new STDs occurs among young people ages 15 to 24.

Powerful statistics to keep in mind for those entering the college dating scene. 

And even more reason why 7 Secrets Guys Will Never Tell You is a timely gift for every grad.

When Sex Before College is the Goal

The reality is the pressure to have sex doesn’t just start once students step foot on their college campus. 

Many girls feel pressure to lose their virginities before they ever get there. 

As this young lady proves…

Thank you so much for coming to speak to our class. You made me realize how valuable my virginity really is. A week before you came to our class, I had set a very stupid goal to lose my virginity before I went off to college in the fall. I did not want to be the only one out of my group of friends to not have had sex. As you went through your presentation, I realized that I did not want to be a statistic in someone’s presentation. I wanted to be different. You made me realize my worth and I’ll never forget what you did for me. –High School Senior

High school guys have told me that girls they weren’t even dating asked them to have sex so they wouldn’t be a virgin when they went to college. 

Girls are now so intent on losing their virginity before college, they’re willing to lose it with someone they aren’t even dating. Just to get it over with. 

You’d be surprised how common this thinking is, which means the sooner you can put 7 Secrets in their hands the better.

  • When I read the book, I felt like I had a mental and spiritual paradigm shift.
  • Now, when a guy starts talking to me, I’m matching him to the standards in the book.
  • It inspired me to write my own standards about the things I would and wouldn’t accept, as well as the things I wanted to see in my future husband.

These are the secrets you may wish you would have known as a high school grad before you went off to college and made poor choices you regret to this day.
