Hey there.

9 posts in this topic

Hi. I'm new here. I'm a 19 years old, 5'4, black / mixed female. I plan on becoming an Internal Medicine Physician (Doctor) in the future.

 

I consider myself Christian. I call it "Non-Traditional" Presbytarianism (Protestant). I seek the Bible for moral advice, believe in Jesus Christ and believe in God along with worshipping him.

 

Honestly, I see Christianity as a way of life instead of solely a religion. I actually don't go to church at the moment - as I like to personally learn and study the Bible independently or with my family. I'd only go to church mainly if I'm particularly interested in listening to life experiences from other Christians or if I need help understanding the Bible more so.
I added on the "Non-Traditional" part because do not participate in any religious traditions (such as Lent, "abstaining" from meat on Friday or baptism) since the Bible never states that such traditions are indeed mandatory (I eventually may get baptized though).

 

That basically explains my religious views. I'm very logical when it comes to them.

 

Since I am Christian, I "wait until marriage". However, in this day and age, I don't quite like that.

 

In all honesty - I am Happy that I choose to wait until marriage. I Completely understand the logic of waiting and I understand that it's meant for people who really do love each other. However, and unfortunately, it's 2013. Hardly anyone Thinks like that anymore - and I HATE this!

 

Seriously? Why are some people so "easy" for sex? This isn't even much of a moral or religious reason - just a classy one, for the most part. I feel nearly hopeless and that I won't find anyone who's willing to wait, and Realistically (as I've explained before) - I'm not even Extremely religious! I'm normal - and have urges just like those who Don't wait. It's just that - Me personally, If I'm gonna state that I'm an actual Christian - I'm going to actually be Christian to the fullest. I'll actually listen and Wait until marriage for sex.

 

It's like now days, people who claim they're Christian don't even wait anymore! Yet if they do wait - they're VERY over religious or overbearring with their religion (Self-Righteous). That's one of the reasons why I don't quite want to try ChristianMingle.com - I don't Want anyone like that. I just want an average Christian person who waits - like Me.

 

I've already stated that I wait until marriage on a dating website - and it seems like no one really likes me Solely because of that.

So I'm wondering..

"There just HAS to be a dating website for people to wait, just has to be."

The only one I've found so far is 2Date4Love.com - yet, I'm confused.

 

2Date4Love.com - Is it a website for those with disabilities who Literally can Not have sex, or is it for people who wait until marriage???

 

Anywho, I was wondering if anyone's a bit hopeless like I am. Also, are there any dating websites Solely for people who actually wait until marriage? That would Really make me feel better.

 

And I'm really sorry for feeling down or nagging, but that's how I feel - and since everyone on here has Some form of actual sense (lol), I was wondering if anyone else feels that way.

Most welcome. Yes one does not have to be a die-hard Christian to be waiting till marriage. WTM is a very basic part of Christianity and other religions too. Its an easy principle. I think people nowadays are just shallow.

Welcome,

I'l address a couple of your questions as a fellow Christian and waiter.

1) yes it is 2013

However, there are many of "us" who believe in the traditional pathway of, love, marriage, sex, etc.

Besides, you stated that you like the idea, but you're unsure, because it seems like everyone is doing it. Not everyone is, and you're not weird, you're special, very special

You said you're Christian so you're waiting.

What benefits do you want to experience by waiting?

Unfortunately, I don't believe I've run across any dating sites specifically for waiters.

However I've met a couple waiters and introduced them over here.

So there are waiters on dating sites, you have to sift through, but they're there.

Just a piece of advice from an older guy, big bro, so to say.

Focus a bit of attention towards this blessing of this season of your life as a single person.

Dating is great, but so is hanging out with friends, serving in your faith community, working to excel in your career, trying things and activities (traveling, skydiving, taking lessons to enrichen your skills with a hobby)

Waiting doesn't have to be a lonely, passive wait.

But can be a active and enjoyable wait.

Welcome again and Take care.

Hope we can walk with you and you will enjoy waiting with us here.

Welcome and nice to meet you! I am also Christian and that is what led me to decide I was waiting until marriage, but then it became a personal decision too. I hope you've found some encouragement on this site :)
