‘It’s about freakin’ time.’ That’s what most of us are saying before tonight’s ‘Big Bang Theory’ where Sheldon and Amy will finally hit the sheets together after eight seasons. However, they’re not the first characters we loved that really waited for ‘the one’ before giving it up.
The night is finally here: Sheldon and Amy are doing the deed on The Big Bang Theory. Naturally, it makes us flashback to some of our other favorite TV characters who also cherished that little thing called a V-card. From Joey Potter, who wanted to really make sure she was ready before her romantic winter getaway, to Donna Martin, who had the most patient boyfriend ever, click through our gallery to see the full list.
Dawson’s Creek never was shy when it came to sex — from Dawson’s parents to Jen’s NYC days, it was a popular theme. However, the most talked about was that of Joey Potter (Katie Holmes), who actually volunteered her V-card to Dawson who (like typical Dawson) turned it down because they weren’t together. Luckily, it was for the best — she gave it up to Pacey (Joshua Jackson) when they were madly in love after counting to ten on a school ski trip in a cabin.
Another who made quite the ordeal out of the first time was Gossip Girl‘s Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester). All she wanted was she and Nate to be absolutely perfect together. Little did she know, he was already over it. It took forever but they finally called it quits, only for her to realize her match was there all along, and have sex with Chuck (Ed Westwick) in the back of his limo. It was the beginning of forever, duh.
Haley James (Bethany Joy Lenz) went from good-girl to Miss Popular after season one of One Tree Hill when she fell in love with Nathan (James Lafferty). Naturally, he really wanted to have sex and resorted to internet porn to hold himself over, but she really did want to give it up — so they got married first in a quick beach wedding. Hey, it worked and they lived happily ever after. (I’m omitting all Nannie Carrie memories.)
