Topics: is it easy to date while being celibate?
It’s the 21st century. Reading and seeing things related to sex feels as common as getting a cup of joe. Talking about sex no longer feels as taboo as it once did. But being a 20-something-year-old-woman practicing celibacy does. Personally, I’m waiting until I get married.
When you bring it up in conversation, you hear “Are you serious?” “How?” But contrary to what society thinks, being celibate can be empowering. I love myself and this is how I choose to express that. It’s what *I* want to do.
Sometimes, it feels like someone is falling in love with you. However, as soon as they make a move and you bust out with the news that you’re celibate they act as if their world has collapsed, totally confused as to what has transpired.
