We spend extended years living at home to pay off graduate debts and, when we finally fly the nest, all too often our early adulthood is a journey from unpaid intern work to low paid ‘getting on the ladder’ work.
So don't allow your fear of having sex to hold you or him captive. Be very considerate of his time and what you're asking him to do.
Remember that what you're asking is a stretch with an unknown destination date.
We share a lot of core values, and I respect her intelligence and appreciate her personality, but we had the intimacy talk in mid- to late-August, at which time she informed me that she was celibate (for religious reasons). When I'm most frustrated with the reality of the situation, I retreat into myself a bit because I don't want to seem as though I am angry of frustrated with her because I wholly respect her religious principles and what she is trying to adhere to. Imagine the scenario - you wait for her, get married and then realise that you're sexually imcompatible.
I've since learned that means celibate until marriage . But last night, she got a little frustrated when I wouldn't make out with her. (She says it means "everything except sex," but in my head I think "well, that actually isn't all that much. and I don't think she understand why that might not be desirable to me because she is a virgin. And it is hard to find a way to explain that to her without sounding like I'm being dismissive of her perspective because she is a virgin. (Another block for me is that even if I was to ride this out and marry her a year or two from now, I don't want to be breaking in a virgin at this point of my life.

It's just absolutely amazing how much the issue of intimacy can complicate and unsettle an otherwise strong romantic rapport--but if there is no intimacy of any degree, maybe it isn't romantic. And I imagine a religious loony isn't likely to be exactly hot in bed.Oral sex is sex to me, and would be a violation of her vow. But, anyway, I honestly don't want to kiss and pet someone for two years . So, I can manage, or attempt to manage, the situation as long as the mutual understanding is she doesn't want to have sex and I don't want to kiss and pet forever (which is actually stressful on my body). More like missionary position, nothing kinky and definitly no blow jobs apart from at Xmas. Im tired of dudes like you, Once you know a girl is not about spreading her legs out of marriage or do certain sexual activities. dnt go around dating girls that dont have your mentality and wants to sex around.
