Girls, I believe that purity until marriage is the ultimate way to a quality marriage! That sounded kind of silly but think about it. I am looking for a good chritian man with a good heart that doesn't see sex as the only way to a great relationship. I want a man that will wait until marriage, that WANTS to wait until marriage. Okay, now I need advice and encouragement. My family never practiced abstinence. My friends don't practice it. No one I know practices abstinence. In fact, I am the one my friends run to when they end up with some guy. Now, my roomate did not know about my purity promise. She bragged on and on about the guys she had a one night stand with the night before, all the guys texting her, and all of her crazy stories. No one seems to ever notice the silver band on my left hand reading "true love waits." As I sat in the living room and she made her lunch in the kitchen, she noticed my ring sitting on the microwave. She picked it up and looked at it without saying much. "Is this one of those.." she started but stopped. "Yep," I said without letting my eyes leave my computer screen, "it's a purity ring." "Oh," she said quietly then laid it back down. Nothing else was said about it. No body really ever brings up the silver band on my left hand. Do they think that I'm just dumb and don't realize I'm wearing a ring on my wedding ring finger? Or do the people who don't know me just assume that I am married? How are men supposed to know that I am single if my ring finger is already taken? What are your thoughts?
