Anyone wo has read this blog long enough knows how I feel about celibacy. But there are many women who swear by it and have, in some cases, been celibate for decades (my mother).
While it is not a choice for me, I would like to hear the stories of those who have made that decision, why they made it and how do they date, have relationships where sex is of of the table.
According to Lisa Vazquez, there are two types of celibacy:
Circumstantial celibacy is produced when the choices of sexual partners are not readily available.
Intentional celibacy is a result of a planned decision not to indulge sexual interests and sexual activities for a period of time due to a stated objective.
Which one are you? For those who are remaining celibate until you are married, are you actively seeking a mate? Are you prepared to remain celibate if you never find a husband? Do you think that is what God wants?
I have some posts I'm writing in the future and I want to hear from those who have either intentionally or accidentally chosen to abstain from sex.
