Physical boundaries in dating
Physical touch/intimacy should correspond with commitment. This doesn’t mean anything goes if you are engaged. What is your motivation -- power and control, gratifying your own ego, meeting a selfish need, or genuine affection?
If you feel convicted of certain behaviors, stop doing them.
So you’ve just met someone new, you get along great and you’re enjoying the rush of affection that comes with the honeymoon period.
Well, now is the perfect time to lay down some ground rules.
When people believe it is to have sex before marriage, a little (or a lot of) touching doesn’t really mean anything. Two young people fall in love and, before they are married, they decide to have sex.
I’m about to get rather personal, so please be prepared for teenage angst and cringe-worthy stories about awkward fumbling in dark corners (you have been warned).
