Subject: Lost hope-Help!
Ive been a catholic since my eight year and am 28.Ive always dreamed of meeting someone and falling in love and getting married-but in the proper way . I grew up with strong cathoilic values of no sex before marriage and thats what Ive tried to maintain;but everytime and by everyone (friends, good catholics, good christians) I keep been told that in todays world its not possible and socially wrong to date a guy without having sex; and all my relationships have broken up because of this issue.
I just fell out of another relationship because i refused to have sex (even though I went quite a long way) and I really liked the guy. Please tell ,is there someone any one who still believes in this kind of thing or am I just "old fahioned". I am on the verge of simlply giving up my stance-afterall am not that pure again since Ive done a lot off stuff. Im no longer sure even if Im doing it for God or why. Has it really been worth it? I do want to get married. At the moment am so sad and so lonely-my friends keep mocking me.
