"On a few occasions, we were together and I felt temptation, I would run out of the room, and once, I ran out of the apartment," he says.Obviously, much of abstinence is about each person having self-control.There seemed to be a special connection between them that made me wonder, It started me on a quest to discover what I call "practical abstinence." All of the "true love waits" messages mean nothing if they can't be put into practice.And that seems to be where many Christians fall short. You can't jump into dating and expect that sexual temptation won't be an issue.Yet, at the same time, I knew couples who did it right.They met, fell in love, dated and waited until they were married to have sex.Some couples are mindful of the words they say to each other or how they sit with each other (i.e., lying down or snuggling).Set your boundaries, discuss them with one another and stick to them no matter what.

As the leader in a dating relationship, a man has an important responsibility when it comes to making and keeping a game plan with his girlfriend.
