First boyfriend at 16,

"Because he was reliable, and brought me home on the dot, and there was no hanky-panky etc, kiss here and there, they were quite happy for me to have him"

Broke up with him at 20,

"Though there wasn't sex involved, there is a fair amount of pressure after 4 years in one relationship ..... I can remember him saying to me one day that he was going to buy some French letters, and I was absolutely horrified"

Talks about sex and relationships

"You heard about the odd girl that unfortunately had an accident and had to get married of course"

Most of her friends married at about 21. 21st birthdays very important, gives details of party

"It was a big exciting thing your 21st"
