Hi everyone! I am currently in 12th grade, age 18, and full-time dual enrolling in college to knock out my first year! In the years to come, I plan to double major in Accounting and Atmospheric Sciences and Meteorology. These two areas fascinate me, essentially allow me to be more organized, and grant me the hunger to learn. Two years ago, I had the honor of interviewing Glenn Burns (Cheif Meteorologist for channel 2) and Chris Holcomb (Cheif Meteorologist for channel 11). After a brief discussion, each said they would love for me to intern with them as soon as I am a college level junior or senior. It was truly an exuberating and wonderful experience to have. I plan on interning as well as working for one of the stations in the near future. I am still a virgin, and extremely proud, because it seems like not most people my age are not waiting till they are married. It makes me truly sick to my stomach! I honestly don't really want to get married or have children because working self-suffciently is more important to me; however, if I do I am defanitly going to continue waiting till marriage. Many people I know and most of my friends are sadly not virgins and those who are I continue to remind them of their values. Many say it's not a big deal but it very much is! I will forever remind my friends and others about waiting. In today's society, it's sad how many people have bible versus in their bio but are going around every night sleeping with every one! Rant over haha. I want to thank the creators of this website! It is very smart and I enjoy reading a lot of the topics in which surface on it! Thanks I look forward to being a part of the waiting till marriage community! Together we will rise!:) Sincerely, H.F.
Hi everyone! My name is Hunter you can read my introduction post on the "introduce yourself" forum. I wanted to begin by telling you all about my situation. I just recently got into a new relationship after 2 years of gloriously being single and only worrying about school and getting all A's. However, I have never really learned to trust people or be emotionally stable. It's something I've always struggled with. In my younger years, I had two very best friends. Friend A killed himself and friend B started hanging around the "popular" groups and left me behind. After that, I have been emotionally wrecked and heartbroken. I just feel like I can't trust anyone without them eventually betraying me. If you read my introduction, you will know I am big on waiting until marriage to have any sexual contact. I told my boyfriend at the beginning of our current relationship I was planning to wait until marriage. Part of the reasons I fell for him was because I thought he was a good Christian man and I really just kinda felt like he and I fit perfectly. He was class president of his senior year and was really involved with school just like me! The first week of college, he said something funny in class and I turned around and smiled at him and he smiled back. That following Monday he came up to me and introduced himself and instantly I felt a connection with him. However, when we started sharing stories of our past relationships he told me that he had sex once with the girl he just broke up with this past May. They had dated for 1 year and he was planning on waiting until marriage but she pushed it and he gave in. I honestly felt sick to my stomach after hearing this. I felt like crying so I did. It still haunts me and we've been dating for over two months now. All over facebook, I can still see pictures of them at the fair, christmas time, etc. His ex-girlfriend never took them down and he still has one of them on his Instagram and facebook. The pictures showed them gazing into each other's eyes, him sitting on her lap with his arms around her, and wrapped in each other's embrace. Every time I am with him it feels right, but then this feeling of how he has already given himself away haunts me to the point of insanity. I just feel like I can never truly be happy without a feeling of desolation overcoming me. I don't want to sound dramatic but even though it's been a couple months since they've broken up, I still feel like they share a connection. When he showed me a song the other day, it was romantic of course, a song lyric line was inferring sex and I just kinda wanted to break down and scream out WHY??? It's like at this point I want to feel an emotional connection with him but there is like this wrong feeling that creeps up. He told me that he regretted doing it but for some reason, it just haunts me all the freaking time. All I feel is sadness and anger. It's like something broke in me at a young age and was never able to reheal. How does one deal with something like this? How do you learn to trust someone without sharing too much information with them? Any tips for keeping your anger under control or emotions in check?
Aparajita posted a topic in Introduce YourselfHi guys, My name is Aparajita and I am 22 years old senior in college. I am waiting till marriage because of my religion and it has also been a personal choice as well. Majority of my friends are not virgins and they keep telling me that I won't find anyone who is going to respect my decision because premarital sex is very common in Western culture. I am also Indian so some people have told me that I would probably have to get arranged marriage if I am looking for someone who is gonna wait for me. Recently I used tinder which I never thought I would ever use. I know a lot of people think that its a hookup app but people also use it to meet other people just to hang out. I really was not expecting anything really but I started talking to someone who is very similar to me. We both are very determined people with career goals and we both are family oriented as well. I was texting this person a lot and it seemed like it was going somewhere until I mentioned my decision to wait. He texted me 3 days later that he doesn't want to pressure me because in his relationships he tends to be sexual. I was pretty disappointed because if it wasn't for the sex thing, I would have probably met up with this person and maybe it could have gone somewhere. It is very difficult to find people who are like me and I felt like my decision to wait till marriage was holding me back from meeting new people. I want to know if there are people out there who have had similar experiences. I go to a Christian school, but I feel like at least in my friend circle there are not a lot of people who think like I do. I am hoping that this site is a place where I am able to meet more people who think like me
