I need some advice. I am getting out there and dating again which is cool. Got some phone numbers and meeting a chick for coffee next week. It has been 7 months since my last relationship in which my ex-gf broke up with me because she said the "flame just wasn't there anymore". She turned into a bit of a cook too but I learned many valuable lessons and don't look back at it as if its a mistake. Anyways back to present day. I am currently ready to date again and have been meeting girls through college, work, and friends and am way more out there than I have ever been. The probably I have is that I am afraid of a new relationship. Honestly before my last gf I had never made out with anyone or gotten touchy feely with anyone at all. At the time it was a cool experience obviously but as it began to progress I became worried. You see at the time I would of got however intimate with her as was possible. And we didn't get past 2nd base as she was my 1st gf and I started dating damn late. Which was a haha I am torn at a cross road. I would love to develop a physical relationship with my next gf if I think it felt right. The problem is I want to hold onto my v-card until marriage which I know isn't a typical male thing to do but I want to be committed to my wife and for sex to mean something more than just a feel good activity with rewards of baby making. As I start dating I would just like to get these things straight. Can healthy relationships progress without sex (I am not agianst making out and what not) in a healthy manner? I ask this because I thought they could and as I have grown older I have learned most girls just have sex like hand me outs at the back of a church on homeless people day. I want my relationship to be deep (not start out that way of course) but I don't want to date those girls who only rely upon which way the wind is blowing to be with a guy. Anyone else got experiences they could share that will help me or maybe advice from being a little older?
