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?

I didn't take a vow of celibacy as much as I choose not to start any personal relationships after my divorce which in turn meant no sex with anyone lol It was around a year or so , I took the time to focus on myself, started seeing a therapist for my mental healthy, started working out for my physical health and to preoccupy myself. So I think focusing on myself allowed me not to think about t hat aspect as well as the fact that being a single mom was lots of work.

I have been sex free since Mothers day and that was just my baby's father being a jerk and telling me he wanted me just to get laid when I was vulnerable. Before that, it was about 6 months. But I will not be having sex again until I am married because I am taking NO chances of having another baby alone! Get a toy.......

Same here I was doing very good...3 months! Until I fell for my kids dad. Now I am starting over and plan on sticking with it. Nobody deserves that part of you who hasn't earned it. Will be shopping for toys soon.

What's the secret to keeping your emotions in check?

Quoting Bluerivergirl:

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.
