Young Adults

Respect Yourself
If you don’t respect yourself, no one else will. You don’t have to have sex just to please someone else. Sex isn’t the only thing that makes you worth loving.

Be Confident and Have a Mind of Your Own
No one likes a wimp. People like people who aren’t afraid to stand up for what they believe in. So don’t have sex just to follow the crowd.

Don’t Get Trapped
Relationships can get very heavy very fast once sex is involved. If commitment and responsibility hit a relationship too early it brings out the worst in everyone.

Care About the Other Person
Pressure isn’t sexy. If the person you’re with isn’t ready for sex, don’t push. Show that you know your relationship is a two-way street.

Know About the Other Person
People love to be with someone who understands them. Taking time to find out what the other person really wants will make your relationship better.

Kiss the Fears Goodbye
Fears about pregnancy, AIDS and other diseases can make you worried, confused, mad, anxious – and not very attractive or fun to be around.

Keep Something You Can Both Look Forward To
If it’s the right person, your feeling will grow and last without sex. Just knowing that you’re saving sex for marriage can make your relationship even more special.
