When is comes to Love, Lust, Sex, or Attention Seekers how can you decipher between each? Since when did it become that most people now confuse the difference between love and lust. Why does seem people are now getting into relationships because they want the sex and attention instead of wanting to find that one person that they want to spend the rest of their life with? If you could answer that for me feel free to enlighten me with your theories.
More and more people are losing their virginity before the age of 16. When did that happen? Because when I was in high school the normal age range to lose your virginity was between 17 and 23. I was reading an article the other day and it said that 12 year-old children are getting pregnant. My thought was “Wait, What? Babies should not be having babies let alone be having sex either.” What parent in their right mind would let their child start dating or let their child in the room alone with the opposite gender when they are in 6th/7th grade. Two of my three brothers and I all lost ours at the age of 17 which for two of us was our junior year of high school. My youngest brother I have no idea about but we all know he has good judgment and won’t do it unless he knows he is ready. But these young children do not know the responsibility that comes along with sex and intimacy because they are not mature enough to understand.
For two years I went on a journey where I would not be in a serious relationship with anyone. Sex was easier to come by because apparently I am very attractive according to a lot of people but I did find out a lot about myself and my likes and dislikes in men. For instance if he refused to come pick me up for our first date or complained about it on the date he was only getting one or two more dates out of me. If he just wanted to hang out at his house, order pizza, watch television and call that a “date” he was done right there. That is not a date that is ordering pizza and having a friend come over to watch television with you. My standards became high and it was harder to find a guy who actually fits with my personality and hits my standards and want to push beyond my expectations.
I started dating my boyfriend April 21, 2013. At first I did not know what to expect from him because we did not really know each other. He supported every decision I made and I’ve supported him on every one he made. The fact he has put up with my weirdness and encouraged my personality is two of the main reasons I have loved him since we have started dating. Peter has met all my standards thus far an pushing beyond my expectations. He is the only guy that my parents approve of. I think it’s because he likes all the same things my father does except sports. But anyways, since our one year anniversary strangers who we meet have already been assuming that we are either married or engaged. The weird part about it is that neither one of use wears a ring and the one I did wear broke around the time of our anniversary.
