Hello to all!
So…I’m pretty amazed and joyful to see that Catholicism really, truly matches up with a lot of my already-held beliefs (I feel kinda Catholic already, hehe!) one of these beliefs is…well…
Waiting until marriage…for…ya know… um, intimacy!..(I’m awful at talking about this stuff)
Though I’ve dated a few suitors, I’ve never actually kissed anyone, or engaged in intimacy in that way…I’d really like to wait until marriage for that kinda thing, ya know? (^__^)
I’ve found that, outside of spiritual circles…this is almost unheard of, nowadays. I even had one fella grumble,
“No one’s ever made me wait for a kiss before.” (Of course, I’m awfully glad I made him wait, because soon after I found out he was pagan and believed he was a werewolf! Yep… I’m an open-minded gal, but…maybe not that open minded… )
Everyone- my friends, etc. are always a little surprised to find out I’ve never been with anyone before, in that way! “Awww that’s so CUTE!” They gasp, and usually pat my head or something like that…
I hope I don’t sound mean, or like I’m judging those who were unable to wait, or anything like that! This is purely my own choice/beliefs, etc. I realize everyone has different circumstances!
But…do any of ya have any advice for someone trying to wait, in today’s world?
Huggles you all As an aside, I’d like to inform you all that I’m amazed by the CA Forums. Everyone here is so kind, helpful, intelligent.
