If they decide they can’t handle not having sex until marriage, let them go!Be confident that you will find the right person who will happily respect you.So, you’ve made the decision to abstain from sex until marriage? You are dating while celibate and you’ve joined many other singles who have made this personal and spiritual choice, including Meagan Good and Tamara Mowry who both decided to become celibate while they were dating.While I celebrate your courage to make this choice, I know you may feel like it’s almost impossible to find someone who respects your values and is willing to grow with you as you move forward in your relationship.If you become celibate because you want to dedicate your life to the church, you're going to shift all of your attention to your higher power.If you were someone who was always "boy crazy" or driven by that type of attention, when you decide to completely take it out of your life, you're going to have to find new interests.And, (like all big major life decisions) making the choice to be celibate effects almost every aspect of your life- even in ways you might've never imagined.
While it is an important part of relationships, it will better you as a person. In fact, it's probably one of the hardest things you'll ever have to do, especially if you're someone who was once extremely active in that area.
The right man will come your way, he will accept you for who you are and want to be with you no matter what.
There are other ways to show your significant other how you feel about them.
Celibacy has been around for hundreds and hundreds of years and used to be extremely common.
There are many reasons one might decide to be celibate.
