I know that you love him, but it is obvious that he does not return that love and is only interested in sex, which he may feel you "owe" him for gifts, money, attention, etc. You are right, if he loved you, he would not pressure you. If you have sex with him, you risk pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, since he is obviously sexually experienced. You are probably not the first girl he has pressured into sex and he can go to prison for having sex with a minor. It is illegal. These laws are to protect you from people like him. I am sorry, but please listen to your heart!
