  1. Really happy it has helped you @Adam, you're welcome! Absolutely, I believe good things come to those who wait is especially available for us, waiting 'till marriage'ers. Thank you for your thoughts and encouragements!
  2. I completely agree with you. God only has our best in His plans for us. This is our duty also, to share the light we have been given on matters like this. In the end the choice to follow God's Word or not remains to us - this also a form of His love for us. Thank you for your thoughts @Theo God bless you too!
  3. Thanks Vince! I'm really sorry to hear about those boys but in the end we are the sum of our choices, right? My non christian friends also don't understand my reasons to wait besides labeling it as my religious choice even though there are demonstrated real life benefits to it. I so agree with you! Thinking of the consequences of our choices (something few of us do) can be a great motivator when the waiting gets tough. Absolutely. The awkwardness is there no matter the person so why not have it with the person you are most open to be intimate with. I think growing and learning besides our partner can be the most beautiful and enriching experience in life. I admit I'm scared of this idea of memories plaguing my marriage and this is a big reason why I pray my future husband is also a wtmer. I don't want to be compared even involuntarily in his memories with any of his exes... Thank you very much for your comment Vince. Wise and edifying!
  4. Having some struggles of my own, this video came up in my youtube feed and was exacly what I needed to hear.(Thank you God) It's from the perspective of a woman but I believe it can be available for males as well. It really encouraged and enforced my core belief that sex is best in the context of marriage. I hope it will bless you too like it has blessed me. Enjoy!
  5. How do you know if he/she is the one?

    Thanks for the clarification @redgrapes. After my experience, I also agree with you. We wanted also to get married but we were a bit unrealistic, hence it didn't last. Also I would like to add how important is to know the person before you get married and not thinking you will have a lot of time after you get married. But I believe the rest of the wtmers are not so naive as I was. About the signs, I don't want to get too much into details but I will give some examples. I don't believe in coincidences. I believe everything does happen for a reason but we don't always know or learn why. We are permited to get tempted only to cling to God even stronger. We got signs as names, numbers, dates while walking together or solo in the city. At one point someone drew a graffiti of my family name (only in english) on the building where he lives and nobody knew we were together, except really close people. For us it was like when people say the "universe conspires" for us to be together. But at the same time even though we had many things and likings in common and really liked each other, we didn't have the most important foundation (in my opinion) the faith one and this eventually was why we didn't last.
  6. How do you know if he/she is the one?

    Loved this. Really good humor. Thanks! Sometimes you just know...
  7. How do you know if he/she is the one?

    I totally agree with you and with the video (thanks for sharing by the way!) Marriage is something really important in our lives when we get into it so the foundation on which we build it will eventually be the most important part that will show on the long run and on long term. Thanks for your for your opinnion! God bless
  8. How do you know if he/she is the one?

    I'm really glad it was helpful to you dear sister... God bless you too!
  9. How do you know if he/she is the one?

    You're very welcomed Vince! And Amen! I completely agree with your statements. After my experience I'm not sure I believe in soulmates after all. I believe God will speak to us in personal ways as to assure us about our future spouse if it's the right choice or not provided we are searching to be in His will and follow it. You mentioned something spot on, I highly think is important; the "feel at peace" completely regarding the partner. I think it is very important to not have any doubs and if so to bring it before God. I believe God speaks to us through many ways but also the enemy is shrewd and can take advantace of our naive hearts. So dear waiters, please guard your hearts and get a good solid foundation before you throw yourself into a relationship just because there are "signs"... Oh, right now even remembering and writing this makes me feel so stupid. Young love...
  10. Hello fellow christian or religious waiters. I'm making this topic as an advice from my own recent experience that I hope will help or bless somebody. The reason why I posted this video is because I liked it and I agree with it. At one point in the video she is talking about confirmations or signs. Her experience was positive but I'm here to advice about a bad experience. I've recently been in a short relationship in which I entered because of different "signs" that have been shown to me and to him. We had so many signs that we both were sure we are soulmates(besides compatibility). I'm here writing to you to beware of signs because they can also be sent from the enemy. Especially now in the later/end times to deceive us. The only option (and which the vloger validates for me) in which I believe is when the sign is found as verses in the Bible. Also the Holy Spirit in prayer if you have a strong relationship with God or in a very direct way through a person that you trust. We tend to wear our pink colored glasses when we develop a crush or feelings for somebody new, seeing only their good parts and setting back the bad - this is a reason more to not fall in the trap of " Oh, this happened in this context so it should be a sign" etc. No. Trust your intuition but even more trust the Word of God and obey it prayerfully. God bless you!

    Haha really glad you enjoyed it Gege! ...and you're very much welcomed! although I think the posting of this song put me in a rather sensible light that I'm not too comfortable with haha... still it's a really good song and dear to my heart. I try not to listen to it too often though. *sigh*
