    Ever since I was 13, I've had the desire

    and want to abstain myself until marriage. I used to wear a purity ring from the Silver Ring Thing until the pool severely tarnished it. Yet, those beliefs have still lingered with me today. The temptation associated is tough, but I feel that the best thing I could give my...

    I am a senior in college,

    not unattractive (if I may brag ever so slightly), athletic, in a relationship and still a virgin. I say all this, not to seem holier than thou, but just to show that I could have had opportunities to sleep around if I'd wanted that. Now, I do desire sex. It seems very appealing...

    I can't think of a better gift to give my

    husband than my virginity. He'll be my first and only and I'll love him even more because of that.

    Ughh

    Even though it's really hard because there is some really sexy men out here. Why does God make such sexy people?

    I'm waiting but also being tempted.

    I'm trying so hard to keep from giving in but I'm starting to wonder is it really worth the wait if its so tempting?

    Abstinence

    I'm a fourteen-year-old girl and I'm a devout Catholic.  When I was twelve years old, I asked my mom to buy me a purity ring, and so, we went online and ordered one.  It's a little silver ring with the words "true love waits" engraved in it.  I've worn it ever...

    Here's To Values

    Why does society think of virgins as losers? Why is it considered "cool" to be having sex by 13? I'm not ashamed to stand up and say I'm waiting until marriage, for that special man.

    Nope and I don't regret it. I don't plan on getting married anyway. Too overrated. I don't know a single virgin. No one waits any more, and why should they?
