Are they saying because it goes on the ring finger? You can compromise and put it on a different one maybe :)
Wear it , ignore them !! Does it really matter what they think ??? 🤷♂️🤷♂️
stay a virgin until it’s right for you !! It’s
I think that if you want to stay a virgin that's great and totally your choice. Why do you feel like you need to advertise it though?
Surely the whole point is to scare away any guys who would think that was a problem, right? Just tell them "that's the point".
Wearing a ring on your ring finger normally means you're married/taken (at least over here), so yes, every "good" guy wouldn't even approach you, so I do see your parents opinion/view
Its your choice, you don't need to convince them, if you want to wear it, wear it, do you ask them what to wear everyday? what you're allowed to eat?
That's kind of what a purity ring is for. If you're young enough to need your parents' permission, most of the boys you will encounter are too emotionally immature to be interested in a girl who won't have sex with them (older creepos will probably just assume that you're wearing it to please your parents and creep on you anyway). That said, if there are any boys around who aren't looking for sex (and there are sometimes a few), they might feel safer asking you to the basketball game or a picnic knowing that you won't cling all over them and pressure them for sex; that at this point you're really more of a girl FRIEND.
If it scares your BF away then he’s not right for you anyway
Girls who pledge to remain virgins until married have a [higher rate](https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2016/05/the-unintended-consequences-of-purity-pledges/481059/) of pregnancy than girls who don't. Why? Because they don't have contraception available when overwhelmed by sexual urges.
Out of curiosity what is a purity ring? Does it have a certain design and go on a certain finger?
A purity ring is a ring which you put it on and promise not to have sex if you are not married. It doesn't have a certain design but people put it on their ring finger
This would be the 1st case I’ve heard about parents not being ok with their young daughter being a virgin
Oh please no. Relationships without sex? Not even close to an all-in relationship. Of course it’s scare your potential boyfriends away.
AH yes, try to shame them for wanting to stay a virgin, because that's SUCH a bad thing, right? how pathetic of you to try and talk someone out of wanting to stay one until marriage, because YOU think its not 'close to an all in relationship'.
"if you'll ever have some" holy shit how.. low? trying to scare tactic her now?
OP, any guy worth anything would respect your decision regardless, because its yours, not his, not your parents, yours.
If you have problem with sex, you have problem at having intimacy with others and relate with others.
Of course, you don't have to get knocked up by everyone, but if you find the right partner, you can share some intimacy with him/her.
Would like you to remember that there also non virgin couples who have the best of their lives better than people who follow that path.
If this is driven from an evangelical or religious root, it's time stop, we are seeing the conseguences of such thinking in these days.
I didn’t know until marriage. She has all my respect then!
And I have to apologize for my excessive bitterness.
It was and outburst of stupor! I was missing a part.
It's text over the internet, sometimes tone and complete understanding isn't possible.
Shit happens, I just don't like the current social status of "if you don't have sex you're wrong/a prude/a joke" so it kinda ticked me off abit lmao.
I didn’t mean that, my meaning wasn’t clear. I didn’t want to say she was “wrong”, it’s just, it is a beautiful experience, and missing it out would be a shame in my opinion. I didn’t know she wanted to stay virgin till marriage though, and now that I do, I have significantly more respect, I’m sure it ain’t easy. Hands up!
Yea, even then what I meant didn't come across, not saying you implied what I said, but that is how I read it, and yea.
