I'd thought my chastity was just a minor dating roadblock.But for him, it was nothing less than a deal-breaker.Sex can be a life-altering event; and since the first time only happens once, it is wise to take the time to make sure the experience is what you really want.
I wanted to follow Jesus's teachings and honor the Bible's commands to resist "sexual immorality" and give myself only to my spouse — not as dogma, but as a rule I truly believed was in my best interest.
But when the boy I liked told me he was dumping me because I didn't want to have sex with him, it really hurt.
Abstinence singles are waiting for the right person to share sexual intimacy and likely will wait until marriage. Just because you abstain from sex doesn't mean you don't know how to have a good time.
Abstinence from sex is not abstinence from pleasure or fun.
God has somebody perfect in mind for you, and you will recognize that person when you meet them.
Until God brings you that person, you’re not going to date at all.I was recently reminded of that first time my celibacy became an issue for me as an adolescent when I read that Tim Tebow and Miss Universe 2012, Olivia Culpo, , saying they never even dated in the first place, the story raises an interesting question: If one person is abstinent and the other person isn't, is abstinence always a deal-breaker? suggest as much as 12.3% of women and 14.3% of men between the ages of 20 and 24, and 5% of men and women between 25 and 29, have never had sex.In light of these stats, it's not totally uncommon for sexually active people to find themselves dating someone who is abstinent.Dating is supposed to be a time to get to know one another, as you've probably already experienced a physical attraction.Dating is the time to learn about the person inside, to discuss likes and dislikes, goals and aspirations.But you aren't looking to be pressured or tricked into having sex. But in the meantime, you would like to meet someone who shares the same values as you.
