Has anyone here ever had experience with a girl who's wanted to "wait till marriage" for sex? Honestly until now I didn't really believe that they still existed, but my current girlfriend dropped that bomb on me recently.
If it were anyone else I would assume that there was some kind of deception involved, like maybe she doesn't really like me, maybe she's cheating on someone with me and is reconsidering cause of guilt, blah blah blah. But we've been dating for a decent amount of time now and she has expressed how much likes me, and she seems committed to me in every way apart from having sex. Long story short, she had a pretty sheltered, religious upbringing and is still a virgin, so I could see where this is coming from.
On one hand, I respect her life choice, and I'm actually still a virgin too, so I can't pretend like getting laid constantly is central to my lifestyle. But on the other hand, waiting till marriage just seems crazy to me. Like I could see waiting for a year maybe, but till marriage? I care about her very intensely, and part of me feels like eventually she might change her mind about waiting that long, but part of me also feels like we may be doomed to failure, because I really don't think I could abstain for all that time and burn a whole part of my life on a gamble.
