I appreciate that he doesn't push it, but I really enjoy kissing him and would like to be kissed for more than a couple minutes.

My son and older daugher are both in serious relationships, one will be married next month, and the other I suspect will marry next year, so I know where you are coming from.

They are both waiting for marriage before they have sex with their partners.

You mentioned that he has had some trouble with this in the past..that's true, maybe he just doesn't want to go too far. On the other hand, maybe if you two kiss for a bit longer, and control yourselves, then you should have no problem. My girl friend accepts me for who I am and what I've done in the past and she knows that I've changed. Heck, we've even talked about if our relationship goes all the way to marriage!

Beside the point, if this was going on between me and my girlfriend, I would LOVE it if she asked to kiss for a bit longer.

Each time, the constant sense of guilt and shame made me want to hide from God.

It seemed like I was stuck in that cycle—until I met my husband, James. It was the beginning of the lifelong adventure of sex that we get to share with just each other And I am so thankful for that. I dated one truly wonderful guy—but he didn’t share my standards.

If you do marry you have the rest of your lives to kiss and have sex etc, so be grateful that you have a guy who has good morals and dont push it.

I was still a virgin technically, but I’d done almost everything a person can do before actually having sex.

We weren’t perfect and didn’t have it all figured out, but I can tell you this: Our wedding night was the first time we saw each other naked, the first time we touched each other in…well, you know…and the first time we slept in the same bed. I don’t have all the answers, but I did learn seven things that really helped me and my husband set physical boundaries while dating. He said, “That’s fine; if you don’t want to do this and such, then we won’t”—and he meant it.
