Dating is a stage of romantic relationships in humans whereby two people meet socially with the aim of each assessing the other’s suitability as a prospective partner in an intimate relationship. It is a form of courtship , consisting of social activities done by the couple, either alone or with others. The protocols and practices of dating, and the terms used to describe it, vary considerably from country to country and over time. While the term has several meanings, the most frequent usage refers to two people exploring whether they are romantically or sexually compatible by participating in dates with the other. With the use of modern technology, people can date via telephone or computer or just meet in person. Dating may also involve two or more people who have already decided that they share romantic or sexual feelings toward each other.

For those of you striving and succeeding at keeping yourself clean and pure in spite of this increasingly sex-obsessed world in which we live, I applaud your faith and courage. For those of you who have succumbed to law of chastity temptations, let me reassure you that these sins can repented of, and generally these young people can eventually go on a mission. Law of chastity issues are very serious in the sight of the Lord, though, and if serious enough, or if you do not fully repented, they may disqualify you from going on a mission.

Living in the twenty-first century, we have witnessed how rapidly and dramatically culture can change, from ways of communicating to the emergence of same-sex marriage. Similarly, many of us live in culturally diverse settings and experience how varied human cultural inventions can be. We readily accept that clothing, language, and music are cultural—invented, created, and alterable—but often find it difficult to accept that gender and sexuality are not natural but deeply embedded in and shaped by culture.
Similarly, human sexuality, rather than being simply natural is one of the most culturally significant, shaped, regulated, and symbolic of all human capacities. Part of the problem is that gender has a biological component, unlike other types of cultural inventions such as a sewing machine, cell phone, or poem. We do have bodies and there are some male-female differences, including in reproductive capacities and roles, albeit far fewer than we have been taught.
Similarly, sexuality, sexual desires and responses, are partially rooted in human natural capacities. However, in many ways, sexuality and gender are like food.

Yes, we can flee to scripture. We can run to the chapel, seek counsel from a priest, and offer our rosaries for his heart. We can do novenas to Our Lady Undoer of Knots, fast, make sacrifices. But that doesn’t always stop the incessant drumming coming not from our heart, but from an ugly place between our ribs. Emotional chastity sucks. But as in all things, take it to prayer first.

You could have heard a pin drop during the hour-long program. So much, that there were a few break — ups that week, due to pressure about sex and other sexual activity. He was phenomenal. I was a little leery at first as to how this would be received, however, our students were totally engaged and rivited to his every word. Sometimes you see kids, especially middle and high school students that are doing other things instead of listening.
This was not the case with Jason. He spoke fast and furious, no time for the kids to get bored or have their minds wonder or you might miss something. This speaker opened up much needed conversation between adults and students, so that they can really make informed choices, not just follow what everyone else is doing.
I can tell you as an administrator I was a little nervous having a speaker talk to our kids for over an hour on chastity. You kept our students on the edge of their seats. We had several sexually active girls in the senior class that said they were going to be resolved to be chaste from now on. All of the kids responded well.
The ‘Yes’ Of Chastity
In August last year I began the Sion Youth Foundation Year , an month program which, much like the Focus missionary program , advises fasting from dating during your first year for both spiritual and practical reasons. After discovering that I needed Jesus to fulfil me during my first year fast, I decided to take the opportunity to focus on journeying with Him and growing ever closer to the One who loves me more intimately than anyone else ever could.
I decided to really invest in our relationship. I want to share with you three things that I found helped me to journey closely and intentionally with Jesus and live out a fruitful singleness.
Chastity is not a foreign concept to me. More than once I’ve been in a relationship where, because I and the other person were heavily into starving ourselves of sex for sexual reasons, abstinence was enforced. The longest I went was about three weeks, meaning no sex and no masturbation—and therefore no orgasms—for 21 days. It turned my life around; I got work done, I kept my house clean, I finished off personal projects that procrastination had always forbid me from finishing.
I realized that a self-enforced period of blue balls can actually be a lot better for the mind, body, and soul than I’d first assumed. Like sexy stuff? However, it does need to be mentioned that having a DMC with your own junk every once in a while is a very healthy thing to do, encouraged by actual professors. Plus, it does our sex lives the world of good to learn our sexual rhythms.
We connect [through masturbation] to the types of action that we see in erotic or pornographic visual stimuli. This feeds our sexual fantasies, which is an enrichment of our creative process. So it’s clearly important to keep bashing away—but abstaining for a few weeks at a time certainly has its benefits.
Benefits I thought I’d share with you here, backed up with scientific facts provided by Professor Pfaus. In the three weeks that I abstained, I wrote 20 articles, built a bed, started work on a book, and began eating salad, like any proper, functioning adult with a fear of imminent heart disease should. As soon as I started going at myself again, all that productivity disappeared, shot up the wall in a long, thick arc of lost potential.
