If you truly love her, use this opportunity to build up your self-discipline and find yourself, whatever that means. You stop despairing as much, and I honestly believe God lightens your load. The time spent has been wonderful though, I think that whats makes it easier. People tell me the only reason I'm a virgin is because I can't get laid, and it's really hard to explain to them my reasoning for wanting to wait for it. It sucks less than being alone, never having had a fulfilling relationship and no hope of this changing for the foreseeable future.
Being in touch with your emotions and valuing love over your desires is not a very popular thing in high school! E: Sorry for being on edge, this touched a nerve with me as I can't stand people whining about their relationships when they have a perfectly decent one, seeing as I've only ever been in 2 shitty ones...you had read more than the first line, you would have realized that he's not really whining at all.
Waiting for marriage can absolutely make the first time with your partner an amazing and wonderful experience, but those who don't wait can have just as amazing experiences.
I am a christian as of about 6 years ago and I can honestly say that I tried to wait and hold off until marriage but I gave in...
like smoking or even eating a potato chip, once you pop its hard to stop.
I am 25(m) not a virgin dating a 24(f) who is a virgin and it SUCKS.
We have been dating for 8 months and it is not easy going from being sexually active and now waiting for marriage.
I'm no narcissist, I know the world doesn't owe me anything like a mate, but I cannot tell you how discouraging being a single Christian is.
But hey, we are called to praise in feast and famine.I think my problem was more along the lines of confidence. Looking back, I'm somewhat happy that I didn't get a girlfriend during my younger years because I'm sure I would have made a mistake.At 25 I was surprisingly close to sleeping with this girl who I've had a history with.My life is more or less one long feast, thanks be to God.My romantic life however is a bone dry desert in the peak of famine, and honestly, I mean it when I say: thanks be to God.Which was the best choice because that relationship went down in flames. Woman to woman, the first time, whether it is amazing or not, will leave you with a hard-to-explain bond to your husband that you will never have with another man. A person has social, intellectual, spiritual, emotional, physical dimensions.
