Abstinence in Cosmopolitan

Recently, Cosmopolitan interviewed millennials pledging to stay abstinent before marriage. Why? People this age usually get criticized for never falling in love, never going on dates or trying to hook up with just anyone. Madeline, 22, says, "If I catch the drift from a guy's bio on a dating app that he's just looking to hook up, I'll pass just because I don't feel like dealing with an awkward exchange... and it would be undoubtedly awkward." Jordan, who is also 22, commented, "In general, I've noticed that men really respect my decision to wait. They see it as something that makes me unique, and most of the time, they feel that waiting allows us to focus on important aspects of relationships that aren't physical." Among the many pressures and dating site possibilities, it can be easy to get caught within the crowd. Allow yourself to be set apart knowing that there is a unique plan for you - don't compromise!
