At times, it seems the price of standing firm on our moral ground, as women, results in many lonely Friday nights and questioning whether we are doing something wrong. When the truth is, we’re fine. We just prefer to take our time.
In the haze of lust, whether it’s 2 p.m. or 2 a.m., it’s easy to rationalize moving faster than you’re comfortable with physically for fear of “losing” an “amazing” guy. But no man is worth sacrificing an ounce of dignity or peace of mind. Our past experiences should be lessons and when you know better, you ought to do better.
I don’t know any woman who doesn’t enjoy and crave some good loving in the sheets. But for some, if a man wants to spend quality time with her body, he has to be willing to make a commitment to the heart and mind as well. Period. Why that seems like a groundbreaking concept to some, I don’t understand.
For the fellas who don’t want the commitment, be honest from the very beginning, don’t expect that “good girl” to wait and don’t get upset if another man sweeps her off her feet.
