    Actually one of the strongest couples I know shared their first kiss at the altar. It's not all about the physical stuff you know.

    Also since when was it immature to stick to religious beliefs and have self control?
    Bet you they will either get a divorce 20 years down the line, or be very miserable in the future.
    Seeing it as just physical is exceptionally immature. It's about being intimate with the person you love, not just about getting it on.

    It's immature to stick to religious beliefs when you don't understand the context they were made in. They are not the "rules of God" but simply what was generally appropriate for that time. Sexual abstinence before marriage was done to prevent children being born out of wedlock and therefore with no support, not for some arbitrary belief of it makes you a better person. Also sexual desire can lead to getting married at a very young age which is very risky as it usually means the people are not mature enough to know 100% what they truly want in a partner.

    -I'm eccentric and not exactly girlfriend material
    -I need to focus on studying rather than irrelevant short term relationships.
    - Not gf material? So you would cheat on a bf basically?
    - Only irrelevant if you pick someone you do not like...Just because you may not be together in 5 years doesn't mean it'd be a waste of time

    I can't get a boyfriend because I'm terrified of rejection. I'm way too shy and I find it hard to let men know I'm interested. Also I prefer the quiet type, who are usually also too scared to make a move.

    You can get intimacy without sex.

    I do understand the context, but that doesn't mean the rules have changed at all. Nowadays it's normally for people to say OMG, but I don't because it's blaspheming. But anyway, we are getting off the topic and onto a religious debate which there are other forums for. It is the reason I don't have a boyfriend at the minute.

    Hah. Well that's been one of the reasons before
    ''I'm just not attracted to you''.

    However I think Michael Buble's song should be our anthem;
    ''I just haven't met you yet!'' :o:
    I genuinely don't think he's out there.

    Please tell me as something as intimate as sex which isn't of a sexual nature.

    If you had studied theology instead of evangelical rhetoric, you would understand the rules have changed because they are not black and white as you think they are.

    Until you open your mind instead of being a drone, swallowing the religion that most likely you had no choice in following (parents shoved it down your throat no doubt), you are going to be very, very unhappy. Go read some philosophy books and expand what you see beyond chanting the same words over & over, it'll do you a world of good.

    Unless you are looking for a guy with a chocolate **** that ejaculates money & diamonds, whatever guy you want will be out there. The question is how hard have you looked?

    Have you ever seen what happens to those couples though? Because they certainly don't end up with a happy ending skipping into the sunset under a rainbow...
    Try beating their wives (or bullying them), divorce, cheating, taking their problems out on their children and so on...
    Anyone with such an extremely juvenile view on sex isn't ready to have a relationship, simple as that.

    I can't get a boyfriend because i turned down the guys i like and now karma is hitting me, also because im shy and i am bit of a perfectionist and i kind of not like the awkward-staring-whilst-eating-moments during the dates.

    I can't get a girlfriend because I never go out or hang around at places that might have a female presence. And if I do, I don't know how to talk to girls so things never go anywhere.
