Waiting dating marriage first year dating scrapbook
A lot of guys are so accustomed to the virgin archetype that they worry they'll tarnish me, or think that I won't be any fun or that I'm conservative.I think the worst is when guys think that, just because I'm waiting to have sex, [that] means that I'm not a sexual being or that sex isn't attractive to me.
I met my current boyfriend online, and we had an instant connection.
My parents taught me that sex was only for married couples.
This idea stuck with me, and as I got older and began dating, I realized it was something I truly wanted to do.
Honestly, I haven't had a ton of great reactions from guys I've dated.
But the other day, my coworker and I had a conversation about why I'm waiting, and she actually listened and told me that my thoughts made sense.
Most people I go on dates with are people who know I take my commitment to my Catholic faith seriously and know before going on a date with me that keeping sex sacred in the sacrament of marriage is important to me.
