Okay; So I've figured out that a major part of the "teenage years" is an awkward little thing life likes to call "dating." And EVERYONE wants to know who you're dating or if you're dating, and it's like EVERYONE thinks you should be dating.
PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: Honesty Here; I'm 17. I've never been on a date, or too a dance or any of those "normal" things people my age are "supposed" to be doing. Family get-togethers are always containing conversations like
Person: "So... You got a boyfriend."
Or I can get sarcastic:
Person: "Soo. You got a boyfriend?"
Me: "Well, yeah."
Person: "Oh really? Who is he?! Where did you meet him?"
Me: "Well; I know him by Bigg Money$$ and he gave me some cash one time for me to... LOL JK. I don't have a boyfriend. Stop being nosey."
But seriously, I feel like, just because I'm a teenager people expect me to be jumping through hoops to getting a guys attention. I think; God has a someone out there for me. He could possibly be in my school or across the world. (and if not, God is enough for me through anything)but How would I feel if I was like most girls my age today, later met the guy God has for me and I have to tell him I've already slept someone.
Don't get me wrong, I know every relationship doesn't have sex before marriage, but WHY would I even want to place myself in position where sex or something could get out of hand. I have morals, and I stand firm in what I believe in. I don't want to even be in a situation where I would think for A SECOND that crossing my moral line was okay.
Now; would I think it's cool to maybe, be taken out on a date, well yeah. I mean, I think it'd be pretty nifty. But, I'm not about to sacrifice myself and what I believe in just for some guy. Us, females, have lowered our standards by SO MUCH. I really don't understand why. We are Princesses of the KING OF KINGS. Why are we settling for the court jests when we can have our real life Prince Charming?
