I agree with you Doom...but I'm not a slut and I've never just 'hooked up' with anyone like it didn't mean anything to me. I'm not the stereotypical person I've been made out to be here.
Honestly I feel like I've been ridiculed enough. I'm even being ridiculed for trying to explain myself. I'm not trying to be right or pretending like my bf is the greatest guy. I never said you were all cluesless either I was thanking you all for your help...so if it didn't come across I'll say it again- Thanks to everyone for helping me the best you could. I know your intentions are good so I apologize for coming across as someone who doesn't value your insights.
With all due respect, child, you're the one who has said the things that have "made out out to be" what we've gathered from your posts. If you don't want to be portrayed in a given way then you need to censor what you write about yourself.
If you really wonder how we've come to the conclusions we've come to about you, your boyfriend and your relationship with this guy I strongly urge you to go back and really read what you've written. But then, we've had this conversation with you before. You claim to not understand how you have been so misunderstood and we urge you to re-read your own posts. It's a repeating trend.
You're not being ridiculed. Perhaps you need to check your dictionary and learn the definition of ridicule. You're being given the sound, mature, responsible and most importantly Catholic advice that you've asked for. Like a typical teenager though, you're upset because you're not hearing what you had hoped to hear.
That's okay, dear. Most of us are old enough to recognize and remember that behaviour. We know it's coming the moment we give the advice. Fortunately for you, and other young adults like you, it won't stop any of us from telling you what you need to hear in the hopes that you will eventually listen.
If you truly cannot understand why Doom brought up promiscuous behaviour perhaps you should read my post about the conversations my 13-year-old daughter has had with some of her thoroughly secular friends that I mentioned in this thread. Or perhaps you should read your own words, "I probably sound like I've slept with lots of guys but honest to God it's lots less than you can count on one hand...."
Techno, you're not even 19 and you've had sex with more than one man. I'm sorry but an unmarried woman of your age who has already had sex with more than one, but apparently less than 5, men is in need of a good talking to about virtue.
Don't blame us when we read what you've written and see a pattern to it. If you want to be upset at how you are perceived here you need to look at what you've written.
