This has been on my mind for a long time. What are a really devout person’s chances of getting married these days? I was just thinking how hard it’s going to be when I start dating in the next few years or so. (I’m 16, won’t date until going to college.)
Not having the blessing of going to an all-girls Catholic school, I am exposed to boys my own age daily and I really think my chances of ever finding someone who is willing to date me despite my beliefs is very slim.
Specifically, I’m talking about sex: most boys will not date girls who believe in waiting for marriage these days. I know there must be some good guys out there, but they seem so few. There are other issues that I think would deter someone, but sex is probably the biggest, I think.
I’m terrified of never getting married or having a family. It seems like it’s going to be impossible. Very discouraging.
What do you think about this? Am I being too pessimistic? Or do I have a real reason to be concerned?
