Has anyone ever taken a vow of celibacy?

Posted by   + Show Post
If so, how long did you go for? How did it work for you?

ha i actually swore to myself i'm not having sex until i get serious with someone 2 days ago. right after one of my best friends said how much he liked me one thing lead to another mind you we were both drunk and bad judgment and i regret it most because we were not careful. i don't usually have regrets for my actions

I tried to say I was gonna stay celibate and I did for a few years at a time. But really I couldn't do it.

Im realy taking the vow of the 90 Day Rule that Steve Harvey discussed in the book and movie Act Like A Lady Think Like A Man I believe its good advice to wait and let the other person & yourself so a good evaluation of having a relationship or going to the next level

 Yes, Twice, The 1st time was 3 years from the time I was 16 until I was 19. I did it again from the ages of 21 to 23. I am now not practicing celibacy but I'm thinking of starting it again.

No vow, but I am celibate at the moment. I'm not dating anyone, not looking to date. I'm focused on my kids, my work, myself, and I find that even if I did have the time to date right now, I have no desire to take time away from those things for a man.

I used to think that I wanted to remarry someday, but lately I've been thinking about how much I enjoy being single and not having to make/find time for a man and all the things that go along with any kind of relationship. It's kind of got me rethinking the whole idea of remarrying someday.

I haven't taken a vow, so to speak, but I do believe that's not something you give away unless you have a life long commitment in place and you believe you're going to spend the rest of your life with that person.  I know it didn't work out for me the first time because my ex is an ass, but I still think that it could happen again for me and, if not, I'm comfortable with not having sex for the rest of my life.  Yes, I get horny, but that's not something I just do for fun.  I believe that you give a little bit of yourself away everytime and I don't want to give that to just anyone.

I didn't take a vow per se, but I went 6 months because I didn't meet anyone I wanted to go there with.  I am now back with my ex, sort of.  We live about 2 hrs away from each other, and I do have fun when I see him, but I keep my emotions in check.
