  2. I am new here.....

    Hello there. Someone from a dating site suggested that I join this forum, so that is what I am doing. I quickly get discouraged on dating sites because I find out that most people do not want to wait until marriage for sex, even if they say they share the same faith as me, even if they say that they are very serious about their faith. This is the number one reason that I quickly tire of dating sites, so I am hoping to find some like minded people here. I'm not very good at introductions, so if anyone would like to know anything specific about me, feel free to ask in this thread, or contact me privately. I do plan to participate in discussions here, as I hope to have some things in common with those in this community.
  3. heyyyyyy

  4. Hello, My name is Kristin I am 30 years old living in Indiana. I don’t spend a lot of time online or on social media: the idea of an online community is very new to me. I am hoping that I can find a community, make a few friends, and support others on their journey. When I found this site I cried, I am an outsider in so many ways, great to know that I’m not alone. So a little bit about me…In addition to abstaining from sex, I do not drink or do drugs. I was raised Catholic, became Atheist and in the last year came back to the Catholic church, I was confirmed at Easter. It has been a rough journey, but my choice to wait never wavered. Since high school I have understood that to have sex is to give entirely of yourself, to give freely of yourself, to give up yourself. It is both beautiful and terrifying. My choice has less to do with my religious beliefs and more to do with wanting to be able to give my future husband all of me. I also believe that sex before marriage creates relationship that are focused on sex rather than actually getting to know the other person and find out if you are right for each other. The last time I actually went on a date was in High school. I had the best first boyfriend, he never hinted or asked. He knew how I felt about sex, he wait six months just to kiss me. Through college I just wanted to do my own thing; I wasn’t too worried about getting married. In the last three years I’ve had two almost but not quite relationships, neither got to the point where we went on a date. I am at a point in my life where my friends do not live around me. While I fit in (more or less) at work, I struggle to meet like-minded people. But I’m not just someone who is dedicated to waiting…I am many things, like I am sure all of you are as well. I have the most amazing silly dog, and two fabulous snakes. I love hiking, camping and riding horses. I have a degree in Landscape Architecture, I enjoy all kinds of music; I was the biggest band geek in high school! I spend a lot of time reading. I actually write letters to people. Hopefully I haven’t shared too much. I’m so excited to have found this site!
  5. Greetings!

    Greetings to Everyone! I signed up on here a while back but I am just now getting around to introducing myself. I am in my young 30's. When I first began learning about these "facts of life" type matters when I was younger, I set forth in my mind I would remain a virgin (not just "technically" but genuinely) until marriage. Given what I knew, this was the only option I could even fathom. Anything else was completely alien to me. Even though I did not expect to remain unmarried at my age, my decision has not changed in the least. I shall remain a virgin until either marriage or death. How did I arrive at this decision (short version)? I suppose this decision was the perfect fusion of my faith, my "philosophies", and my view of love. Ultimately, the Holy Scriptures influenced all of these. It is very nice to see a website dedicated to the promotion of virginity until marriage. I look forward to future communication in the forum.
  6. Who am I?

    Hello, I have always had an interest in political science and most of the books I read reflect that. My favorite film is Star Wars: Episode 4. My second favorite film is Disney's Beauty and the Beast. The rest of the list depends on my mood. I love the Walt Disney Company and I guess that pretty much sums me up.
  7. Hello All!

    Hello! I am a new member from Corpus Christi, Texas. I am also a college student. As much as I like to try to find other people that share my want to wait until marriage, I find it increasingly difficult in my college and today's society, in general. Sometimes, I feel very discouraged, and irritated at the whole issue. For myself, I would love to marry a virgin, but I am deeply saddened to say that I have only met one my entire life. And I've only ever met a handful of female virgins to be friends with. I am so happy to have found this site, just to have found a group of people like me.
  8. Hey There, (Hopefully) Future Friends :)

    Hey y'all! Just found this site yesterday and I am quite intrigued by how many people feel the same way I do, whether it's deciding to wait till marriage or people who decide to wait from now on. I'm glad to see many people feeling comfortable enough to speak out about how they feel regarding the topic on something that's so commercialized and embedded into our culture. I, being a devout Catholic and someone who promised to wait till marriage, am happy to know there are others who genuinely care about the well-being of others (physically and emotionally), instead of forcing a partner to take part in a sexual act just for his or her own pleasure. Being a Christian, I hold sex in the highest regard as I view it as God-given; it's the highest degree of a connection two people can share and when someone has multiple sexual partners, the whole concept loses its value. And it kills me to see so many people being pressured into sex by peers and the media. The media has made women seem like sexual objects and men as sex-hungry, pleasure-seeking creatures (and vice versa). I just feel like most times the media portrays sex as a sport, which has become part of our culture (which made me feel so attacked, lol, hence me searching for sites like these)! Being a college student, I am surrounded by temptations and would like to find solace in a community such as this. I hope nothing I said was offensive in any way, and if it was, I do apologize and hope that we can talk about it as this is merely an opinion of mine and just my feelings. I know I mentioned my religious beliefs, but I promise I don't discriminate. And I'm quite nice, so if what I wrote above seemed otherwise, I promise that I will prove it. We all have different opinions and that is something I am very well open-minded to accept and we can all prepare to agree to disagree (if need be). Well I believe that is all for now and I hope everyone is doing well! - R P.S. I NEVER understood how forums work, so apologies in advance if my posts are out of place!
  9. Greetings and Salutations Everyone!

    I never know how to introduce myself in online forums! In person, it comes pretty easy to me, as I can often read the room and people's facial expressions, but online, it's more difficult, because even if I read through some of the topics and get a feel for other community members, there's still a "gray area" of just not knowing what to expect. But here goes... Choosing a username is one of those things I tend to over think, so keeping with that tradition, here's an explanation for "WaitingForSuperman": I chose this name because I wanted a username that reflected my quirky personality and served as an homage to why I joined this site. It's also a clever play on a very interesting movie with the same name.Ok, I think I expected myself to type more, but that's all I've got. I believe I expended all of my creative energy this morning working on this "Superman" avatar! Sorry, but: HELLO ALL!
  10. Hello everyone! Having been previously passive, I realized it may be high time for me to start looking for the girl in my life, and I'm really glad I found this site! I have always wanted to save that "special moment" for a special someone-whom-I-havent-met-yet. Not just because of religion, although I am christian, but to create the best chances for a lasting relationship. Apparently general population doesn't think that way. At least not here in Denmark. For a while it seemed like I was nearly alone for thinking like this(waiting), and my chances were next to none to find someone who was also waiting. But just seeing this site is a huge encouragement! Every comment is either a comfort or words of wisdom. Having read a lot already, I am filled with renewed hope that this is not at all impossible. You guys rock! A little introduction of myself: My name is Peter Jacob, (but calling me just Peter, "PJ" or Jacob is all fine! ) I'm currently studying to become Mechanical Engineer at Aalborg University in Denmark. The study takes most of my time, but when not studying, I enjoy relaxing through video-games, watching movies, doing something creative, going to church or sometimes reading books. I love being creative, making all things from robots to video-games to chainmaille. I consider it all hobbies! But sadly, spare time feels like a depleting resource in these days, and I never get done as many of my hobbies as I'd like. Feel free to ask me anything.
  11. Hello. I am a man introducing myself from the U.S. I am pleased to see others who value purity, and I am waiting for marriage (or waiting forever, I am not sure yet). I seem to be a little older than most here as I am in my 30's, and I hope that's okay. I spent a lot of time on my education because, and I earned my Ph.D. in nuclear physics about two years ago. I was never ready for relationship during my education because it was too dynamic to ever settle down. Now that I am finally finished, I am ready for relationship, but I forgot how late in the game I am entering these things. I find that when I was younger, I wore my purity like a badge of honor. Now that I am this far into life, I am having trouble relating to others in this area and feel like its a terrible secret I hope people don't bring up in conversation. Ever feel like that? I find myself sort of doing everything I can to not say anything about it and act like I know what they are talking about. So, I decided to join the site after I discovered it. I hope I can relate better in the arena with people who understand what waiting does to a person. On the flip side, I find that there are some really neat things I was able to do differently in life that most people simply can't with family and relationships. I play guitar a lot and was able to accumulate some really neat gear as a good musician. I am almost done with my private pilot requirements too, and I hope to get my own plane afterwards. Actually, other pilots ask me if I have a family, and when I say no, they say, you'll be fine as a pilot then. I guess waiting does have its perks. On a final note, I love Jesus very much. I am not really a "religious" person though. I have worked and hung out with many peoples from all over the faith spectrum (including no faith) through science and music. I hope to meet some interesting folks here too. How about you guys? Ever find that your "secret" (or maybe not-so-secret for you) about waiting led to some really neat possibilities in life too? Oh yeah. If you like to play Portal 2, I am game anytime, haha
  12. Greetings!

    Well, where has this site been all my life?! Name's Caroline; but you can call me whatever you like (within reason). Born and raised in the UK, and have successfully notched up 23 places on my age-defining belt. Naturally, I've decided to wait. Plenty of reasons in favour of doing just that, so I decided to roll with 'em. I look forward to meeting lots of like-minded individuals, and to (hopefully) forming many great friendships!
  13. Hi guys, just wanted to say hi to y'all! And that I am happy to have found a page centered around something so positive. Feel free to have a look at my profile where I wrote a little bit about myself. minoo
  14. New kid on the block

    Hey there! The name's Devante, I'm a student at DePaul University in Chicago, IL in my final year studying Psychology. I thought that I might give this site a shot in the hopes of connecting with a few people who share similar beliefs as I (it's a rare principal nowadays unfortunately) and maybe make a few friends along the way. Although I live in the city I do enjoy escaping the concrete jungle ever now and then to experience the freedom of nature along with discovering different and new cultures in order to expand my horizon. I have heavy interests in History, Philosophy, Art, Music, Photography, Activism, Protesting for a good cause, Cinema, Theology and so much more. I'm Agnostic and Vegetarian btw; I would consider myself to be loyal, open minded, and shy which are all characteristics that I find attractive in a girl (shyness can be a bit of a turn on actually lol), I think this is a good start in terms of an introduction, I don't like getting too much in depth, if you're interested at all then give me a quick holler (I won't bite I swear) and we can go from there Someday...\/ \/
  15. Hi there! Wonderful website!

    Hi everyone, First off, I'd like to say that this is an awesome website! Randomly stumbled across it and so much of the content rings true! Been a waiter (24, btw) and plan on staying on one! As for my introduction, I'm an engineer/business tech from the middle east (no, not in the oil industry ). Dunno what to say more about myself - so glad for the articles and all the people on this forum!!
  16. Swedish girl joining

    Hi everyone (mostly on the other side of the world...) Just wanted to say hi and at the same time inform that there are people everywhere thinking about this question/decision. I travel a lot and wherever I go I always hear that swedes are supposed to be tall, blond, sexy and hang around naked on the beach... I have no idea where or from whom this prejudice originated but I'm tired of being put in a box with the word easy on it. For me there is not only the pressure of society regarding waiting but also the pressure of being "swedish" in the eyes of many people and it's not the most easiest thing to handle. I've become a member on this site to take part in forums and interesting topics, and of course it's always nice to get to know new people as well! If you want to know more about me or if you are interested in swedish society/culture you just have to ask! Kind regards, Louise
  17. Hello! :)

    Hello, Everyone! It is a pleasure meeting all of you. I am 24 years old (soon to be 25 in June), a virgin, and I am waiting until marriage. If you can't read my username, it says "Steven" in l337. Here is a bit of my background: I am an American and I was born on June 21, 1989 in Burnsville, Dakota County, Minnesota. Until 1993, my family lived in Eagan, Minnesota, then moved to Orlando, Florida (which I really consider my hometown). In 2002-2003, My parents divorced and my maternal grandfather passed away . In 2004, I moved with my brother and mom to Palm Bay, Florida, where my grandmother lives. I stayed there through my high school and community college years and visited my father on alternating weekends. After my first year at university, it was apparent that I needed to be closer to campus to take my classes (saves gas money as well), so my brother and I moved back to Orlando and live my father and his new family. My brother, however, went back to support the family in Palm Bay. I graduated from university with a Bachelor's degree in 2012. I currently work as part-time security at my church. I am a Christian that was brought up with a mixture of Pentecostal/Assemblies of God & Lutheran doctrines. Jokingly, I call myself Luthercostal if we get down to specifics. I do want to eventually have my own place, but times are tough and I'm living with my dad & stepmom for the moment. It is not that I am not willing to work, but I feel like I'm not given the opportunity. I've been turned down so much that I'm just thankful for what I have. As for my interests, I love history, specifically American history and the American Civil War since I was in elementary school. I would say a good chunk of my personal library revolves around the subject. I love anime & manga since the late 90s. Watching Toonami on Cartoon Network after school is one of my fondest memories. I've been an avid gamer since 1996. The first console I played was my father's old Atari 2600 with games like Pacman, Donkey Kong, & Frogger. Since then I have had a Nintendo 64 (first console owned & we were taught a valuable lesson about saving money with it), a Game Boy Color, a Nintendo Gamecube, a Playstation 2, and an Xbox 360. I enjoy movies & comics. My favorite movie franchise is Star Wars (I'm having mixed feelings with "Disney" Trilogy coming out next year). That's all I can think of at the moment. I hope to get to know all of you better as you get to know me. If you have any questions, you can ask me here if you want.
  18. Hello, everyone

    Hello, everyone. 24-year-old male waiter here. I have a lot of experience having the types of conversations that take place here in my offline life, so I figured I'd start participating in the community here. Looking forward to interacting with you all.
  19. I'm glad to have found this community online. I'm Mae, from Philippines but currently residing in the Middle East. Back home, i was surrounded with people who are also believing on chastity until marriage. Now, i'm with many different ethnicities with varying stand and argument about it. I was searching for the latest statistics of how many men/women are actually waiting until marriage. I may have ot find that numbers, but glad google included this site on the search results. Cheers to meeting new friends, and many great discussions soon!!!
  20. My intro.

    Hello I'm Leonidas and I'm waiting till marriage for religious reasons and because I decided that it was the right thing for me. Not many people in my community are waiting till marriage so I'm glad I found this website. Here are some things about me. I'm a virgin as you may know by now. I like radishes. I prefer Xbox over a Play Station due to the security. I'm not a fan of Call Of Duty because it's too unrealistic. My hobbies are drawing and writing poems. My favorite movie is 300 and my favorite show is One Piece. That's all I can think of putting on my intro. Bye for now.
  21. Hi everyone, my name's Dani! I have already been on chat a couple times and I've been looking through this site. I'm nervous about being on here for two reasons, but am trying to be honest so here it goes: I'm not a virgin, I had sex once in my past relationship and have dated only one person since. I don't know if this is too much information but I'll just put it out there I guess. The first time I had sex wasn't special, and I don't feel heart broken or guilty about it. But after having the one experience I feel that I should wait until I am in a relationship where I love the person, and obviously it would be fantastic if that's when I get married. I'm also not religious, I actually consider myself Atheist... Please don't misunderstand my stating this though. While I don't hold any faith close to my heart I think I am respectable and curious, I love learning about all different religions. I don't believe in God but I love people and treat them how I want to be treated as well, and I try to live life to the fullest! One last thing I am very very (extremely) nervous about stating here since I know a large portion of the community is religious and could possibly disagree with this. Anyways, I'm attracted to both women and men. I've recently dated a girl who I liked very much... but she wanted to date around and, long story short, I broke up with her. I really don't like to consider myself bisexual because of the ideas that come along with it, people think I'm promiscuous and indecisive which is not the case. I want a loving and caring relationship like anyone else and as of a week or so ago I decided that whatever relationship may come my way I will wait until I know that the person loves me and is committed to a life with me before I share all of myself again. I hope this isn't too long of an introduction. I've met a few people on chat and so far they have be fairly welcoming and kind. So thank you! Also any advice is welcome, as are questions. xo
  22. Hi!!

    Hi everyone *waves shyly* I'm new to the forum, though I have checked out some of the different topics and threads before. Looking online for a site that encouraged and supported people choosing to WTM is what led me here and so far it looks just like what I was searching for I'm 26 and a recent teacher's college graduate; hopefully I will be an elementary teacher in the future! Fun fact: I live in Canada! (I get the impression that most of the members here are from the US) Anyways, it's nice to meet you all!
