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!

A very warm welcome to the forum! I hope you find what your looking for. Snakes are a somewhat peculiar pet - what kind are they? In regard to sharing, I think you'll find that as long as your comfortable with it its hard to "overshare" on this forum :P

I have corn snake named Luigi and an albino milk snake named Bazinga.

@aCountryGentelmen

I played trumpet and baritone in school. I don't play anymore, but 12 years after high school I still credit band with making me who I am.

Nice! Do you have any photos of your terrarium? I'm not so familiar with terrariums (aquariums are my thing) but I'm thinking one could design a nice terrarium habitat if desired.

@ tis the Bearded One

Many snakes are very sensitive to humidity, in my case plants would create too much and they could get respiratory infections.

Hi Kristin, welcome to the forum! You're in great company and you are with people who will encourage your choice. I totally get feeling like the outsider. Sounds like you have a lot of great hobbies and interesting life. Snakes! Welcome!
