Today’s guest post is by I was sooooooooooooooooo naive. I am not, nor do I claim to be anything close to perfect. But seriously, I am a cool chick and I made a commitment before I even started dating at 16 to keep the law of chastity. When I broke up with that guy, I decided that I would date only members.

I was simply fresh meat and the sharks were circling. ” and got responses along the lines of “Older chicks are cool! Of all the men I met, I am still on friendly terms with two.
In a church that requires chastity but a world in which random hookups are the norm, what about the plight of single adults who are well past the average Mormon dating age?
Or even more difficult, what about those divorced members who are committed to the law of chastity, but also facing the dating scene again? Prairie skirts and fluffy bangs look horrible on me (I know–I am dating myself).
