Who's Maggie....? You mean Peggy Carter....?

Look, people get a lot of mileage out of the "90-100 Year Old Virgin" bit, but there's no evidence to prove that Steve never got laid during WWII. Or before WWII, for that matter. The hapless romantics out there like to pretend that Steve and Peggy were this match-made-in-heaven couple and that he dutifully remained chaste and virgin for that dance that would never happen....

....but realistically, the dude was a young, good-looking guy even as a wimp, and he actually had a double date before the whole Super Soldier Serum thing; and then he was surrounded by a bevy of beautiful USO dancers for a good part of the early war; and after he bulked up with Super Steroids, Private Lorraine probably represented one of a ton of women who willingly threw themselves at Cap.

If he remained "chaste" through all that, with or without Peggy Carter, let's face it: he had to be in the closet. There's just no way a red-blooded all-American boy from Brooklyn would've passed on at least one of those many opportunities.
