If I practiced saying “no” to a dating relationship when I really wanted one, I figured this could help me say “no” in the future to more harmful things.
My friend pointed out that now that she was single again, she felt more free to reach out to other girls around her and grow in friendships.
When I was 14, I chose not to date until I had graduated high school.
I think my reasoning back then was that I knew dating should help me find who I’m to marry and I knew I was too young to get married anytime soon.
Now that Caleb and I are dating, I do kinda wish I had some sort of experience in dating to fall back on.
This is my first ever dating relationship, and I have pretty much no idea what we’re doing.
When I was in high school I was in two choirs and insanely involved in my youth group.
I had friends and family around me who I could hang out with.
Additionally, I believed Jesus was right by my side ever inch of the way, so I had no cause to turn to a boyfriend to stop my loneliness.
Similarly, when you’re getting to know a guy in a dating relationship, you become vulnerable with him by sharing your thoughts and beliefs and feelings with him.
This vulnerability is important for is okay to share.Caleb has never dated before either, so at least we’re learning together.
