I made the decision that I would wait until I was married to have sex. I have not yet met my husband, but I know that deciding to wait has been the best choice I have ever made. A good friend taught me one time that faithfulness is not something that occurs in marriage. It occurs before you ever get married. Right now even though I don’t know who he is, I have decided to remain faithful to him even though we have never met. It has not always been easy, but I know that sometimes the best decisions are the hardest ones. When I do get married I want to be able to tell my husband that I waited for him – that I have always been faithful to him. He will never have to worry about my past or whether or not I might have a sexually transmitted disease. Marriage is hard enough and I want to go into it with a clean slate. I have decided to use this important time while I am single to become a better person for when I do get married. This time has helped me to get to know myself better and it has helped me understand what qualities I need to look for in someone to date and marry. I consider myself to be a selective dater, but this has taught me how to be comfortable in being single. I would rather wait for someone who is good than make a regrettable mistake. Patience pays off. I have broken off relationships in the past, and it was hard but I never lose hope of meeting the right man. He could be right around the corner.
