  1. Artificial Insemination

    I really don't like the idea for single mothers. There are enough kids out there as it is without fathers, why add more to that number?

    *raises hand* Because of where I work (ANA), this Ebola thing has tripled the amount of stuff I have to get done. I have to put in some hours today as well.
  4. Should Men Give Up Porn?

    On a related note, Art of Manliness did a series on this fairly recently: Men and Porn: An Introduction Men and Porn: Why is the Pull of Porn So Strong? The Possible Pitfalls of Too Much Porn How to Quit Porn Pretty good read, especially the 3rd article.
  5. hey :)

    Welcome!
  6. That was a pretty good read. I will say this: she needs to be more upfront about her boundaries in the future. If you value WTM that much, you need to lay that out on the table at the beginning of the relationship. I think it would have saved her some trouble. Also, the story of boy #3 was upsetting to me. The guy's supposedly a good Christian with firm beliefs, yet he isn't loving enough to protect the lady that he's with. He sounded like a mysoginistic jerk if anything else. :/
  7. VIDEO INTROS!

    I have a YT channel that I use for mostly gaming stuff, but I figured I'd give the 'on camera' thing a shot. I was kinda nervious and my perfectionist tendencies led to me doing several takes lol, but here we are - short and sweet:
  8. I'm not down with prenups at all. I'm all about being prepared, but I feel like prenups cheapen the value of marriage, so to speak. I'm not a proponent of divorce at all, and walking into a marriage with a prenup almost makes it feel like divorce is an option.
  9. Hello Everyone

    Welcome to the site!

    Nope, why throw myself into the path of unnecessary temptation? Plus like Jas said it's disrespectful to the both her and the parents; maybe I'm old fashioned but I can't for the life of me picture a father being okay with a dude sharing his daughter's bed in his house.
  11. Viewer's Undiscretion

    I've always felt like there was a nice balance here; you've got the general waiting discussion areas which cover crucial topics but don't get too graphic, and on the other hand you have Viewer Discretion for...'those questions'. I don't recall seeing anything that's goes into the line of being inappropriate outside of VD. Besides that, the site is about information on waiting till marriage to have sex, so naturally sex is bound to be a topic that comes up here often. Even for younger folks like high schoolers, it's good for them to have a place to discuss the same stuff that they're hearing about from their peers/media/the locker room/etc. I dunno, I feel like with added censorship you'd just have all of the under-21 crowd like...
  12. Listened to this at work today, was pretty good! I always viewed pickup lines as jokes, but the fact that they actually work just baffles me. I'm sure there's more to it than just the lines itself (like appearance/confidence, etc.), but still. 😔
  13. Random Thoughts

    That feeling when an older guy at your church brags about the fact that you're a virgin WTM to other guys at church whenever he gets the chance. I get that it's a compliment (and certainly much better than ridicule) but sometimes I'm like
  14. controlling yourself

    From a biblical perspective, humans have been born sinful ever since the fall of Man where Adam and Eve ate the fruit. Humanity was perfect up until that point. The whole point of Jesus dying was to save humanity from that sinful nature that was introduced in that incident. That said, I believe that humans are inherently sinful at birth. No one has to teach a child to tell a lie in order to cover up something wrong that they've done, it comes naturally. Sure, we weren't originally created with the intent to sin, but the original temptation in the garden threw that out of the window.

    Do Edible Arrangements count?
  16. Half full or half empty?

    I think the glass test is kinda silly for gauging optimism/pessimism. It's all about perception; what if I say the glass is half-empty because my ideal is for the glass to become fully empty? Maybe I just enjoy water so much that I really want to finish that glass.
  17. I don't have a problem with it at all. Shoot, if she knows what she's doing think of the money we'll save on mechanic bills!
  18. Should Men Give Up Porn?

    http://www.lifesitenews.com/blogs/porn-is-super-empowering-just-ask-the-duke-university-porn-star This was a really hard read, but sheds a lot of light on the industry.
  19. Sex a sign of disrespect to parent?

    The kids who typically go wild in college are the ones that were told "because I said so" whenever they asked why the should obey their parents' rules. I believe that explaining to the child WHY you aren't supposed to do certain things is just as important as telling them what to do. Take premarital sex for example. If the only thing your child knows about it is "don't do it", they'll probably end up doing it. However, if you have a dialogue with your child about the positives of WTM and the kind of landmines they'll avoid by doing so, they'll walk away with actual information, and the fact that you cared enough to explain it to them.

    Welcome Christie! I lurked this place for a few good weeks before joining as well lol.
  21. Hi! I'm Brittany from Baltimore!

    Welcome Brittany! As a fellow Marylander I'm ashamed to admit that I had no idea that Baltimore had the nickname "Charm City".
  22. Your other half being religious/not religious?

    If she's not a Christian (and by that I mean someone who takes their faith seriously), a relationship is comepletely out of the question.
