I'm not asking because I'm questioning whether or not it's wrong, but rather, I'm asking because I was recently challenged... and I didn't really know what to say. I am curious to see what the bible specifically has to say about intimate relationships before marriage... and even after marriage as well. I'm in a situation where I have all but fallen for a fella whom I really enjoy being with. However, his background isn't nearly as strong as mine. He's had sex once before, I've never. He's ready to wait for me as far as sex goes, but he's really been hounding me about other intimacy. He wants to know why I'm holding out when he knows that I'd love to smother him in kisses. He doesn't understand why someone would hold back when they want to do something so 'harmless.' I need a solid argument to give back to him, because all I've had thus far is 'It's just wrong.' Any help on any part of this subject would be greatly appreciated, I'm at a loss myself, sort of in a corner here.
