A lot of times at parties, he would just walk off and leave me. Because of my Christian background, I died a hundred times in my own guilt.Amnon carried out this plan and forced Tamar to have sex with him. We are built with a sex drive which causes us to be interested in the opposite sex. To be sexually attracted to someone does NOT mean that you are in love with that person. They were just sexually attracted to each other and had little in common besides this. There are couples by the thousands who could not or did not resist sexual involvement before they were married, but now they cannot stand to touch each other. You may be attracted to someone at first sight you may even be "turned on" by someone at first sight But you cannot genuinely love a person whom you do not really know.A fellow sees a girl with a beautiful figure and he says, "Wow! PRECIOUS LOVE Satan does not want you to know and experience true love. He wants you to get involved in sex outside of marriage.At this point, if I can say anything to young people, it is this - when you get into a dating game, find a fellow you know is a Christian - one who is not ashamed to say, "I'm a Christian and I do have morals myself."

I tried to explain to him the guilt I felt about sleeping with him.He did not give me any special attention and I felt hurt because of this. I started to do things that I knew he wanted-anything that would please him. I thought, "If I don't he's going to go somewhere else and I don't want to lose him."

Joe and I were having problems in our dating relationship. I tried to stop it, but he just would not accept it. I lived in constant fear he was going to go out and find someone else and he did exactly that.

He is going to take care of me, and he is going to care for me. You do not change a person no matter how much you try and no matter how much you love them. I did not want to admit it because I wanted our marriage to work.
