Waiting until marriage dating

Most people I go on dates with are people who know I take my commitment to my Catholic faith seriously and know before going on a date with me that keeping sex sacred in the sacrament of marriage is important to me.

Like those that choose the “No Dating” method, people in this category can be driven and deeply spiritual. They can keep one foot planted in their own personal goals and ambitions, while keeping up a pleasant romantic relationship and not wanting too much more.

I feel like I have a lot of really solid, platonic friendships with guys because it sort of eliminates any possible sexual tension.

But no, guys don't necessarily treat me much differently.

When the “love” or “lust” drug wears off, you’ll look at the person soberly for the first time and you may not like what you see. So many guys think about sex first, and everything else last.

In my relationship with the my waiter ex-boyfriend, everything else came first; the physical side was secondary. Excluding sex from the bedroom made us more inventive. Limiting our activities forced us to be more focused and giving; it wasn’t as selfish, quick, and cursory as full-on sex can be sometimes.
