Going to be married in 3 months and saving myself. :)
Don't regret it
It has made me feel
so unbelievably loved
and vice versa.
This is exactly how I feel.
Even though I'm marrying the man I lost my virginity to
I wish I had waited.
He lost his
way younger than I did
and I wish
he would've waited too
because of the pain in knowing
I'm bonded to him in a way
he could never be bonded to me.
If you haven't had sex yet please wait.
You will never regret waiting
there is a huge chance you will regret having sex.
Thank you, being a senior in high school,
I sometimes question my own choices to wait.
It's things like this
that keep me strong
that I can wait and I will.
You're such an inspiration Emily!
I honestly get a lot of crap from guys
when they hear i'm saving myself.
Doesn't change my mind
because if they're going to pressure me
then they don't belong in my life.
love this video.
My husband and I waited and he waited 34 years
it wasn't awkward,
maybe funny because we were getting to know each other in a new way,
but it's something I can look back on and laugh.
it was absolutely beautiful and guilt free.
I know if I hadn't waited
I would have felt guilty and wouldn't have enjoyed it.
Our wedding night
I will always have great memories of.
I wish young girls could know
exactly how wonderful it is
to wait and that it is worth it.
'm a teenager and I've already seen so many
of my friends hurting
they had sex with their boyfriends
and became extremely attached
I don't think
how much vulnerability and commitment
goes into sex
it served as a reminder to myself also.
I wanted to save myself for marriage
the very first
I've heard about that
as a 8 or 9-year-old girl
because I found the idea beautiful.
I'm 20 now and still haven't changed my mind. :)
My soon to be husband waited...
I had not.
It has brought me a lot of feelings of regret,
I feel a since of shame.
Many feelings about this topic.
The craziest part to my story
I was in many physical relationships
and I met
my soon to be husband at 21.
If I had
four more years...
and I love that you said it's not to late to change!
Please if you are young
and are watching this
trust me you can do it.
I prayed and asked for forgiveness
of all these sins
and not long after
I met the most wonderful man.
I just want to say thank you for this.
When I gave my virginity away
I felt so empty,
just as you said,
and I cried for days
because I felt like
I had given up
all respect for my body.
Thank you for telling me
it's not too late to change my life.
I needed to know that
to reassure me
that I'm not any less of a person.
You are a lovely person.
Didn't save myself for marriage, but
I have so much respect for girls and guys who do.
It's extremely difficult
to not give into that,
especially with what society says
teens should be doing.
I'm not going to say that I regret my decision
but saving yourself for marriage
is a wonderful and beautiful thing to do.

Guy says ….
I'v started dating a virgin recently and she was embarrassed to tell me, she had been made to feel that it was a negative thing and was very self conscious about it. I found that really mind boggling but it made me so happy and grateful to know she's still a virgin! I hope I can keep her!
As a father of a young daughter. Thank you for posting this video. My daughter is almost 13 and this will be an issue she will need to deal with. My wife and I have already talked with her but I think this video will really help it hit home coming from another person outside of the family.
this is video is amazing.
thanks for sharing.
as a man whom has taking the vow
to save himself for marriage
I also have being mocked
and being the punch line
of many many jokes
because I am a virgin.
I want to able to say to my future wife
yes you are the only woman
I have been with.
I also had relationships breakdown
because I would not sleep with her.
but after this video
I know that I will find
the one whom loves me
and will understand.
thank you so much.
As a guy,
I find it refreshing to
see a thing like this;
makes it seem like
everyone doesn't wait for marriage
but I appreciate you
for making this video
and letting your viewers
morality is still around.
God bless you and your family!
Wilt did not put this comment
under the highlighted video.
Thank you, I really needed to hear this.
I'M 18 and waiting and everyone on my dorm floor
has had sex.
but I know I'm making the right decision.
I am a 20 year old college sorority girl and I am still waiting till marriage!
I mention that I am in a sorority
because so many times
sorority girls have a bad reputation.
But I have waited and plan to wait
until I am married.
My friends who have not waited
are always telling me
that they think
it is so awesome
that I have been able to do that
so it is really awesome to have a good support group.
I love this video and
I am so glad
there are people out there
who still believe in waiting till marriage :)
I am almost 36 and I am still a virgin :)
I'm a 28yr old Christian
that has heard such hurtful things as well
about me waiting till marriage.
BUT IM SO happy that I am still waiting
and will continue
until I meet the one
that God has prepared for me. :)
Amazing courage and absolute truth!
As a 55-year old woman,
you wouldn't think I could pick up something new
from someone so much younger,
however the part
where you shared about
women not being able
to leave someone was really on point.
Sex creates a bonding.
Certainly there are those in society
who treat it casually,
but you cannot escape that fact.
Once you have been with someone sexually,
you have given
a portion of your innermost self
that never returns.
'm 23 and a virgin until the day I walk down the aisle.
The Lord has blessed me greatly
because every person
has only "praised" me for waiting.
I take pride in the fact that I'm waiting.
I want to encourage others
(as I read through some of the comments)
NEVER be ashamed
I try to be as open and honest with anyone
who asks me,
and the people I tell
have been nothing shy of respectful
for my decision.
My body is a temple of God,
and my faith is my own.
No one can control me and my decisions.
I'm so thankful for this video
and your perspective on this Emily.
