It’s not a secret that guys will most likely be the first to initiate physical contact. If you’ve been dating for a while, this is no revelation.
Guys give affection for sex and girls give sex for affection.
Love is a verb. Love is a feeling. Love is action. Love is intentionality. Love has many ways of expression.
Gals, whatever you do, do it because you want to. Do it because you want to express a an attitude of the heart with your body. Don’t do it because you’re pressures into it. And do what’s right, at the proper time. Save sex for marriage. That is the propert context to express your love. You’ll be hurt if you do it before. If the physical side of the relationship progresses before your emotional and relational aspect you’re not growing healthy. If you feel like you are emotionally and physically at the point of moving forward – be there at the level of commitment as well.
Love based on feelings but without commitment will not last. Feelings change. People change, principles don’t. Commitments don’t lie – people do.
We are body and souls – develop both sides of you and your relationships – especially the romantic ones.
