I didn't vote because I don't think there are enough options. It depends upon the person and their values.
I assume that you/he/she is young and rather inexperienced for the most part, or you wouldn't even be asking this question.
I don't think it's cheesy if they seem to make sex a meaningful union. You must seek other information, such as are they religious? A virgin? Or would they schmooze you? Do they seem eager to get into your pants?
And if they meant 'make love', then it would probably be a while before they got any anyways, as love it build on the foundation of friendship, which takes TIME! And you shouldn't feel pressured. There is no rush, as it's your body.
