] The title ‘I kissed waiting goodbye’ does not mean that I (with my weird artist name) had any problem with the idea of sex as belonging into a marriage relationship (I still believe in that, even though I don’t think a state marriage has much to do necessarily with the definition of marriage) but the whole imported ‘purity culture’ had some exaggerations that I found quite weird.
The emphasis on waiting and not doing stuff was what was getting on my nerves…
Like I said earlier in my recent post a purity culture I don’t know, some of the critiques to ‘evangelical purity culture’ I’ve seen lately are describing something I don’t recognise at all, but I did have my concerns with what I did see.
I completely agree with many of the things already said. I think that a big problem today is selfishness, whether in relationships or not.
The world screams as us to think about ourselves, and the idea of "survival of the fittest". For life in general, I am reminded not to just think of myself, but of the people around me!

But it also vocalised some critique to a book I mentioned in a recent post (‘I kissed dating goodbye’ by Joshua Harris), and I suppose more broadly to the rhetoric of the people of ‘true love waits’ , who then had a Flemish division here in Belgium that sent me a lot of news letters because I once had carelessly signed one of their pledge cards on some christian event.
(It seems they’re out of the running now though , can’t find anything of them anymore lately…) The song itself was dismissed later because I hated how I hadn’t been able to find a really fitting melody on the sometimes quite random chord progressions.
The whole design has a slight aged feel, the desaturation of colours and the use of earthy sepia tones, make this extremely interesting to look at, and the design is one that is timeless. Since the last chapter focussed on the principles of defective dating; this chapter follows on to provide some application methods to prevent these pitfalls that could arise in a relationship.
The book starts off with an anecdote from Joshua Harris and his own personal love life. I think these things that are suggested can be implicated easily during child development and really requires control not to be influenced by the media, and really acting out against it!
(the irresistible 21st century virgin boy) Last week I had a serious flu and I was quite sick, and not able to do much at all, not even reading or thinking, so I was lying on my bed listening to old CD’s with demo songs that I recorded years ago, when I still used the nick/artist name ‘the irresistible 21st century virgin boy’*.
