Boundaries dating physical
We still kept our boundaries in regards to unhealthy touching and we waited until we were married. I knew I had a couple Christian brothers I had to update each month about how we were doing and receive prayer from. The purpose of an accountability partner isn’t to be policed, but rather to pray for one another and keep each other’s head on straight. Make sure not to get a partner who is struggling with his/her purity or is disinterested. Apply that wisdom to your relationship and avoid beds together until you’re married. Avoid closed doors and solitary homes/apartments/dorm rooms.
She had a couple Christian sisters she spoke with as well. All three of us kept pure until marriage and all three of us have amazing marriages. This especially goes for couples that are young and aren’t getting married anytime soon (as in within a few months).
I knew the Bible said that sex was for marriage, but everything else was a bit gray.
Because I didn’t have clear boundaries, my girlfriend and I hung out in ways that caused our physical attraction for each other to heat up way too quickly.
After my first breakup the sudden lack of physical touch was hard for me to cope with and there was a desire to seek that fulfillment in wrong places.
When I first dated in high school I didn’t really have any clear boundaries aside from wanting to wait until marriage for sex and also sensing that there shouldn’t be inappropriate touching.
If one person’s boundaries are looser than the other, the person with looser boundaries needs to respect the other’s in love and protect them.
Kissing and long hugs should not be happening between two people who are just going out on a date or two together and aren’t in a committed dating relationship.
Despite being far less affectionate physically, I had just as much fun with this second girlfriend as a I had with the first.
And when we broke up although it was tough emotionally, it was far less tough physically.
