Sex for the first time

Megan • Firefighter/EMT
Alrighty, I'm kind of new on ruby so idk how this really works but here it goes. So my boyfriend and I have been together for well over a year now. Well go on spurts of not doing anything sexual for months so I got fed up with it. I asked him tonight what his real reason for not having sex with me is(he's a virgin also) and he said honestly, I don't think that you're 100% ready to have sex. 
The thing is... I've been telling him for months that I'm ready and that I want to, he's even told me he wants to.
My question is, is this normal? Has this happened to anybody else?
