Talk about why you made the decision not to kiss in the first place. No lingering for hours, no lying down together, no French kissing.
Spend time praying about this on your own, asking God for strength to make a good decision.
Instead, she entered and exited relationships frequently, often sleeping with the men she was dating."Even though I knew it was wrong, I continued to have sex outside of marriage," Lindsey told The Christian Post. Because when you're single you don't want to be lonely.""I was the girl that broke up with one boyfriend and had another one on speed-dial—that afternoon I'd already be going out with somebody else.

And we don't really know what we're waiting for now. In fact, not kissing is like a wall between us we haven't climbed. Few couples do that and that's why they end up doing all kinds of sexual stuff they never intended to do. I feel like we're so close that the only thing that would get us closer is to kiss. Not necessarily because you haven't kissed but because you think through actions and made a decision about physical boundaries at the beginning of your relationship.
