Dating an abstinent

We must learn how to say “no” to our sexual desires even if it’s unpopular and difficult. Jessica Mc Cleese of the Krist Samaritan Center in Houston, Texas.

She has studied Christian sex therapy for the last four years. Mc Cleese noted that much of our issue with managing desire is that we’ve made our desires too important.

“All temptation finds its power when hidden from others. So he knew eyes were on him, which he believes helped him stay accountable.

Accountability partners can rob temptation of its power.” When I asked my friends about their relationships, it quickly became clear that the couples I knew who saved sex for marriage had one thing in common: They had accountability partners or mentors. Both in their 20s, they dated for a year before getting married, and they found that talking about their relationship with people they trusted made all the difference. “It was good to have people on an individual level and on a more public level to engage with about our relationship,” he says.

“It is best that you and your date do a lot of outside activities so you can remain focused on each other and not sex,” he says. Don’t add more temptation by always being alone.” Jason Peaks agrees that a relationship out in the open helped him and Danielle stay pure.
