  1. I have been doing a lot of thinking about why I am waiting until marriage and how easy it seems to have been for me compared to some other people. Then, it hit me. I just don't feel the drive to have sex with anyone. I want (quite badly, in fact) a romantic relationship, but I just don't seem to care about sex at all. I guess this makes me a Heteroromantic Asexual. Is there anyone else here who thinks they might be like me? I guess this also means I have been cheating at the WTM thing all this time
  2. Forum issues

    Sorry, but it didn't seem to help. I got the erroneous redirect again. This time, I saved the URL to which it redirected. It was "http://url4short.info/4670638e".
  3. Forum issues

    I just noticed today that sometimes when clicking on the Google search result for forums.waitingtillmarriage.org and I noticed that the first time I clicked the link, I was redirected to some other website. I am a moderator on another forum that uses IP.Board and had this problem, and it turned out that someone had somehow injected some JavaScript that caused the problem to occur. I don't remember the details of the situation, but I figured the administrators here should probably know.
  4. Forum issues

    No problem
  5. Splitting the bill vs. guy pays

    I am wondering what you think about "going Dutch" versus the traditional concept of the guy paying for both. Personally, I believe in chivalry so I would be more that willing to pay for the meal of someone who I was dating. However, at the same time, I would find it quite attractive (in a breaking-the-gender-stereotype kind of way) if the girl wanted to pay for her own food. What do you think?
  6. What are your views on make up?

    I like it when girls look natural too. A little bit of makeup is OK, but I prefer none at all. Wearing too much is an almost instant turn-off for me.
  7. Why Men Love B******

    I think they (the author(s) of that book) are getting b**** confused with Beautiful Intelligent Talented Creative Honest.
  8. You need to get yourself a nice Air Conditioner! Yes, this article is quite sickening. At least most of the comments on the article are disparaging it and its author.
  9. How Open Are You About Waiting?

    Whoa, I just realized I replied twice on this thread without realizing that I had replied to it before...
  10. How Open Are You About Waiting?

    I don't go around telling people out of the blue that I am waiting, but if anyone asks I will gladly tell them. Also, I have been known to yell at males or groups of males who are objectifying females.
  11. I agree with you. Saying that WTM isn't for everyone just seems to marginalize the people who do have the strength and resolve to wait.
  12. What is your ethnicity/national identity?

    My ancestors came from all over Europe, so I guess I am a pasty white mutt too
  13. None or some or alot??

    I think girls look better when they aren't wearing any makeup at all. Those "blemishes" really just make you look better. Perfection is a flaw.
  14. I have never been in a romantic relationship.
  15. Alcohol??

    I have never drank, and I never will. I don't really have anything against drinking in moderation, but the thought of psychoactive drugs in general scares me. Also, I don't handle moderation well, so I think it is a better idea that I just don't try. On a slightly related note, did you guys know that you can make moonshine by fractionally distilling Listerine?
  16. I don't think anyone has ever hit on me. But then again, I am completely oblivious to such things, so I am probably mistaken.
  17. IRC channel?

    According to Freenode's information about how to register a channel (http://blog.freenode.net/2008/04/registering-a-channel-on-freenode/), we should probably be using ##wtm instead, so I registered that. If you join I will op you.
  18. IRC channel?

    I know the site already has a Chat page in the forum, but I was thinking it might be a good idea to start an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) channel. This would probably increase the availability of people to chat with because (I don't know about other people, but) I leave my IRC client running all the time. I already checked, and both "#wtm" and "#waitingtillmarriage" are unregistered on Freenode, so we could grab either one of these. What do you guys think of that?
  19. IRC channel?

    Sure, I can do that As far as I know, there isn't a good way to alias one channel to another, so which do you want?
  20. 26 years of waiting and counting...

    Trust me, waiting until marriage makes you more of a man than any of those people will ever be.
  21. I can't say I have ever had any doubts. In fact, I tend to be something of a stubborn SOB about my personal morals. The way that sex is portrayed in the media just makes me sick and reinforces my desire to wait. (The thought of boycotting sex altogether to protest this abomination has also passed my mind.)
  22. <disclaimer> I know that many girls would not like my idea of an ideal honeymoon, but you asked for it, so here it is. </disclaimer> My ideal honeymoon would be touring around the country in the RV that I plan to convert from an ex-schoolbus to visit places like national parks. I love nature and I have always wanted to visit the national parks out west, but have never had a chance. (Note: I live in North Carolina, so just about anyplace in America is "west" to me )
  23. I'm not a teenager anymore (I am 21 though, so it hasn't been too long), but I am (and have always been) proud of being a virgin. Not a bit of insecurity about it.
  24. I am not particularly looking forward to it. I seem to be "allergic" to many foreign substances being in close contact with my body for long periods. (Every watch I have ever tried to wear has caused my arm to break out, for example.) I am afraid that attempting to wear a ring would just cause dermatitis for me.
  25. "Losing" your virginity

    You only really "lose" it if you give it to someone who doesn't deserve it.
