  1. Hello, newbie here!

    Hello! I've joined and thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a 24 year old writer & teacher. I was brought up in two religions - Orthodox Jewish and Greek Orthodox Christianity. Although I'm not traditionally religious, I do hold some similarly religious views in relation to marriage and relationships. I've made the decision that I want to wait until marriage however I have slept with someone in the past when I was 19. It was a mistake and I realise now that it wasn't the right decision for me. I hope I can still be accepted into this community. Thanks
  2. Hello, everyone. My name is Steph. I came here after a friend suggested I find a website that promotes, encourages, and supports waiting until marriage. This was after getting upset that for hundredth (I exaggerate, but you get the picture) time of meeting men on dating sites who just want casual sex. At the age of 27, I made a decision and a promise to God that the next time I chose to be intimate with a man would be on my wedding night. That was 7 years ago and now I'm in my mid 30s. This was after going through difficult personal experiences and also based on my faith. It has made dating and the prospect of finding a lifelong partner very difficult. However, I'm determined to not give up, but to keep to my values. So, my friend said I needed to find like-minded people---both men and women---who are in agreement with this value and understand it. I followed her suggestion and put in Google "people waiting until sex for marriage dating forum" and this came up. So I signed up and here I am. Thank you and I look forward to meeting you.
  3. 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!
  4. Hi Fellow Waiters

    Hi Guys and Girls, Im Joseph, and firstly a big big thank you to the creator and admins of this site. I came across this site in sheer luck and im so glad i found it. Truly a blessing from God to find people on here who think like me and have the same views about sex and marriage. First off, im from the southern tip of india and i guess there isnt anyone from there on here but it doesn't matter, as long as you guys exist anywhere in the world i have hope.. ...Im a christian and my faith is one of the main reasons im waiting, simply because i believe God made one man for one women in this world. It's great to finally meet people who have the same values as me and i'd love to get to know all of you. It's so hard to wait nowadays with most of my friends and cousins telling me its pointless or no girl is going to wait. They keep telling me that im waiting like a loser because most girls do have sex with guys before they get married. To be honest it hurts real bad cause i had many chances to give in but i just held back thinking my wife should be the one and only girl in this world to even see me naked. Sometimes i feel i shouldn't have been born in this generation with values degenerating and so few people with the same views about sex. Id love to meet a lot of people on here and hoping to make many many friends in the days to come. Only you guys would ever understand why im waiting and my justification behind. Thanks for reading and looking forward to seeing you all around
  5. 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.
  6. Just Joined!

    Hey my name is Michael and Im 23 years old. I think Im unique to this site due to the fact that I was sexually active in the past. However those actions lead to a lot of destruction in my life that I want no part of any longer. I have chosen a different path and will be waiting until marriage.
  7. 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!
  8. 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!!
  9. Hola :)

    Hello Everyone! I just wanted to say hey and that I have already begun to really enjoy this site! Growing up, I feel like I was the ONLY person in the world waiting. Luckily, I was blessed with some amazing friends that were supportive of my decision and encouraged me to remain a virgin (even if they decided it wasn't for them). A little about me, I'm 24, Christian and eager to hear about your experiences. Any questions, just ask. This site seems like a really fun, supportive community of people and I can't wait to learn more about some interesting topics!

  10. Hello C:

    Hello world! I'm still getting the hang of this website so forgive me if I'm doing this all wrong D: I've been lurking this site for awhile and finally decided to join and meet more like minded people. I'm the only waiter in my circle of friends, and it can get really disappointing...but in the end glad of my choice to wait until marriage. I also look at everything my peers are going through in this crazy dating/hookup scene and realize that having faith and following Christ has been the best thing I've ever done for myself please share your experiences with me! Those success stories give me hope lol
  11. So glad this...

    Hey everyone! I am so glad this site exist! I knew there were people who were waiting till marriage, but I hadn't actual met anyone in my circle. Thanks so much! You all give me hope!
  12. new here

    My name is Katie. I'm 24; turn 25 next month. I'm not religious, just haven't met someone I like. I would like to fall in love before sex. I'm shy. I want to wait til marriage but it seems like I will never find the right guy. My family and friends try to push me into just doing it-just one night stand it. They say I shouldn't wait.
