The point is that sometimes appearances can be deceiving. Evan: Well, being a womanizer is not a nice thing to be. I mean, I am kind of feeling awkward telling him about this. Maybe being narrow-minded about other people's ideas, and stereotyping all virgins as crazy religious freaks from small towns, is not a very smart way to think. I will also grow in my faith and pray for my future wife every day.Next
If the reason behind premarital sex being a sin has to do with the possibility of conceiving a child, then it seems like category 3 is an acceptable rule. Should I wait for someone else? However, I wonder if I had waited longer to tell them, then they may have stuck around long enough to actually start to like me - and then perhaps wouldn't have disappeared once they learned of my virginity. Level three is really dangerous and suicidal. Virginity is still valued by men who are looking for commitment, but it is not as common so therefore not expected. God Bless all you others out there that feel the same. He makes it clear when he mentions how a man leaves his father and mother to unite with his wife.Next
Thank you for proving to me that there exist good men out there and if you know where I can find one…. Leading up to my wedding night, my girlfriends were giddy for what I was about to experience. I have asked God to remove the stumbling block in my mind. How do people work full time, do ministry, and have a social life? I can understand that it might be an issue for guys who I might date, but again, if it's their fear of taking responsibility for the action, their fear that I might not be able to deal with the chemical reaction after sex, their fear that I might become clingy or whatever. She said she wasn't ready, so I just said okay and didn't pester her about it. So yeah, i would really encourage you to read your bible, and see what God thinks we should be doing to prepare ourselves for intimacy, and what his view is of marriage, and sex! I did not wait and unfortunately decided to have sex with two boyfriends and then a guy that I barely even knew long, messy story involving low self-esteem, being pressured and forced to have sex, etc. The urges will subside and things between Jesus and you are usually smoother.Next
It bothered me for a little while but I got over it and continued seeing him. Since my current boyfriend is not someone I see myself marrying, should I just break up with him in order to honour my values? Maybe join an adult sports team like softball or take some martial arts. That is an awesome testimony in itself. That is a question I have to ask myself also, but I am concerned because I see a lot of human selfishness in the above comments, and I thought that is what we were supposed to be being saved from. For sometimes we learn more in the waiting than we ever knew was possible. It will be painful but instead thinking about it as disgust or worse… think of it as your sacrifice everyday to show your true love for the person you married to.Next
I know I am forgiven, and have been now for several years am abstinent. He told me that he was becoming more spiritual and wanted to sort some things out in his life and that part of that meant that he was going to take a break from having sex. I am very glad that you decided to wait, it gives me and others hope that there are more people like us that stil have the will to do what is right! If you choose to be alone choose not to marry and you can stay faithful to God then good for you. Dating this woman that I love has been a challenge. Keep yourselves from sexual promiscuity. My reasons for waiting have matured along with me.Next
He lost that woman because of some crazy circumstances involving a feigned pregnancy shortly after the act o. I am a 29 year old Christian female, have never had sexual intercourse, and I join both of you in the push for setting up anything that will help all us virgins get to talk to one another and possibly start dating. We are called to be set apart, and having oral sex before marriage is a way of the world. I thank you for tgis article, it gives me hope. Every single resource regarding the positives of no sex before marriage are christian based organisations. But I know I can change, I will keep praying to improve myself and when I do, it will only be thanks to God for helping me and for not giving up on me.Next
Just know where they go first. I think it's difficult for unattractive women who are insecure and pretend to be confident to manage their emotions at times, especially when they are clearly less attractive. The Bible tells us in Hebrews 13. Making out, to us, does not have to lead to any type of sex, and I'm getting kind of tired of all the preachers out there, who are making boys afraid of themselves, by saying that making out will release a sexual monster inside them. They are not on the same scale.
I recently met a 40 year old, for the first time while at a brunch with some mutual friends. Even if you want children you have plenty of time. Is it about the person who will give them self to you? I am a Christian and hard-of-hearing but I can hear 70% of the time with my hearing aids on and my speech is very well. Regardless of her past, I want her to know that I sacrificed to bless her and that she was worth the wait. Sadly, we virgins are so rare out there, that I am beginning to give up on finding one in local churches, and so finding ones on an online forum like this seems to be the best way to have a pool to choose from.Next
