Dear future soul mate,
I have waited for you my whole life and now am ready to give my treasure to you. I waited for you because I didn’t want the emotional baggage. I also knew that God would want me, as his daughter, to wait for physical pleasure. Condoms have a failure rate of 14% and you still have a 50% chance of getting a STI. I didn’t want to have someone else’s baby. I want to have a baby with you. I want the baby to have your eyes and your handsome smile. Not the smile and eyes of the guy that I could have slept with that probably wouldn’t stay with me through the responsibility of a child. It’s been tough for both of us to stand up underneath the peer pressure to have sex. But at times, having stood up under it has made it easier to be with each other and love one another. I respect you and love you. I trust that you aren’t marrying me for sex. I want you to be the courageous man of our house and lead me and our children in the right path. Real loves waits. Baby we have real love. I’m ready to commit to you and I’m emotionally ready for an intense relationship.
With all my love, Your wife
Hey yo Paul,
You should wait because there are serious consequences for having sex bro. One is you can get disgusting diseases like herpes. And from some of the stuff you can get really sick. Did you know the failure rate of the condom is 15% when it comes to getting a girl pregnant. Make sure that you don’t put them in your wallet because that will make the failure rate worse.
You definitely don’t want to get a chick pregnant that’s for sure. Dude you know that people say pull out method, but that doesn’t work, it’s stupid and if the condom breaks that would suck because here comes the kid. You don’t want to go there. And all that guilt and the pressure you will have when you still have college to get through. Thanks for hearing me on this.
Dear Future Son,
I am writing this letter right now to give you some advice. I know that being a teen/pre-teen can be stressful, but I believe that you can overcome all of the pressure. Just follow the advice that I give you, and your teen years should be a breeze.
Pick good friends. Friends will sometimes be the people who tempt you the most, but if you pick good friends they won’t do that. If you are nice to everybody you will have a wide selection to choose from.
Also, wait to have a girlfriend. If you don’t have a girlfriend who will pressure you into having sex? Nobody will!
Another vital piece to having great teen years is to never have sex until you are married. You won’t have so much emotional baggage such as feeling used, feeling guilty and having a bad reputation. I love you and I can’t (but will) wait to meet you!
Dear Future husband,
I have decided to wait on having sex until I marry you. There are any reasons why I have chosen this fate. One reason why is because the best sex is in marriage and I lonely want to be bonded to he one I am married to, which would be you. I wouldn’t want all the emotional baggage, guilt, memories, and comparison from other relationships. There would also be the chance of getting a STD like Chlamydia, Herpes, AIDS, or others. Not only do the side effect cause me to suffer, but other people I have sex with! Oh, and if I get pregnant….whew! My parents would kill me. Not literally, but my life would be trashed. School…gone, friends…gone, work/job…gone, and my life goes down the drain just like that! That’s why I have decided to wait and I hope you do too.
Yours Truly – your future wife
Since you told me that you’re going through a tough time and making tough decisions, here’s what I think you should do. Seems how your considering having sex with your girlfriend, I’m gonna tell you what I think about that decision. I think you should wait till you’re of legal age and get engaged to her. Then later you can get married to her, but the wrong decision to do is get engaged to her and have sex then. Once you get married to her and go on your honeymoon is when you should have sex with her.
Save sex for the one you get married to. Don’t just go around while you’re a teen or in high school and have sex with every girlfriend you have. Just wait til you get married before considering having sex with her.
Sincerely, your bud
You should wait to have sex until marriage because it is a serious issue. It’s not like you can snap your fingers and “bam”, you walk away like nothing happened! There are many of things that could happen – a baby, STIs, guilt and other negative feelings.
Please choose abstinence over some sex fling. If sex becomes the central focus of the relationship, like some sort of addiction then it would no longer be a meaningful relationship. Choose abstinence!
Seriously, you need to listen to me. I think you should wait to have sex with your boyfriend. Just look at everything that could go wrong. I mean do you really want to end up pregnant and with a baby while you’re still in high school? Or you could get one of those STI thingies and then imagine what your parents will say! You will lose their trust in you. Even if nothing like that happens, think of all the guilt you will feel, especially if you know your wouldn’t approve.
Really one little mistake like this one will ruin tons of things for you. Please listen to me. Don’t you want to wait to commit yourself to one man? You won’t have to constantly be reminded of your previous relationships comparing each one to another.
If he is pressuring you, remember the S.T.O.P. from the Willing to Wait class. Use it, you don’t have to be forced into this. All I want is the best for you , so make a good choice.
Love, Your Friend
Dear Future Daughter,
You should wait to have sex because it’s better for you. You don’t want to end up getting an STD or end up pregnant. I know if you ever did have sex you would keep it a secret from me, and then if you do that you would feel worried and nervous to ever talk to me thinking I would find out or you would spill it. But if you did do that how would you know if you got pregnant or got a nasty and disgusting STD.
You may think that most of the kids in your school have had sex, already, but mostly all of them are lying. You don’t want to make the biggest mistake of your life and have sex because a fairy won’t pop up and make you go back in time like in the movies.
I hope that you will listen to me.
Dear future daughter,
I want to teach you about abstinence and why it is so important. Abstinence means to be willing to wait till marriage to have sex. It is so important to wait until you are married because you want your first experience to be positive and afterwards you want to be able to know that the next day he will still be there for you. Also, it is so much easier to say “no” to the guy then to say “I’m pregnant” to your parents. I also want you to know about the emotional baggage. If you have sex before you are married then you will feel things like guilt, fear and worry, loss of respect, memories and comparisons, feeling used and a poor reputation.
Love, Your Mom
Dear Future Husband,
I’ve decided to wait to have sex until our wedding night because I don’t want to have any major baggage or anything like that. I want to show you that I saved myself for you and I want to know you saved yourself for me too. If you wait, it will really show how much you love me and I love you. I don’t want to have sex and worry about getting an STD. I don’t want to worry about getting pregnant. I don’t want to be thinking of another person when I’m with you. I want to be married to you and not deal with the guilt of being with another person. I do not want to feel used and I don’t want to get hurt. I just want to wait! I just want to be mature enough and I hope you understand I really do. If you’re not willing to wait then I know you don’t love me.
Your future wife
