Hello I am a 16 year old male, and I was wondering am I strange? I go to church but when I go I notice there are very few people my age there and that got me thinking am I a strange person. I also want to save myself until marriage, but as many of my friends say that will be hard living in the society in which sex and various other things are so common and outspoken, I was wondering if I am strange because I want to save myself until marriage, my parents always raised me too get married first then sexual things, but I am not sure my parents are quite old and were raised when people got married then had sexual relationships.
I want to save myself until marriage partly because of religion and the way I have been raised but also to make sure the person is the right person for me.
But anyway is it strange for me to believe that I should save myself until marriage? Are there any girls out there who also want to save themselves until marriage? Am I just being old fashioned and unrealistic by wanting to save myself.
Any answers would be gratefully accepted.
