So, I've been chatting with one of the many lovely ladies here at CM and in our discussion, it's been discovered that as a man, I don't find cuddling as tempting as a woman might think. So, guys is cuddling a gateway to impurity for you? Ladies is cuddling a gateway to impurity for you? I'm curious to see if there's a difference in the way men and women view cuddling.

Depends on how far you go with that "cuddling" and what's running through your mind while doing so. Everyone has their limit, and everyone's limit is different. Discretion and self-discipline go a long way... both ways.

Cuddling can be a very chaste way of showing mutual trust and respect. Men who cuddle like that let their GF know they're building the relationship on who she is as a person. That means mucho to a GF who also believes in a chaste courtship.

I think it depends on the chemistry between the two people. It may be just fine for one couple, but for another the chemisty may be so strong that a simple handshake puts one or both through the roof! Don't walk, run!

I think in general, to cozy up on the couch in front of a movie with the right person is a gentle comfort.

I agree that it depends on what the intention is when cuddling. It does not have to be a gateway to impurity if one chooses it not to be. As for me, I do enjoy cuddling since I consider physical touch to be one of my love languages and I see it as a means of communicating love toward a woman. biggrin

Hmm.... cuddling can be dangerous for me. In the future, now that I'm being more chaste, I wouldn't make it an "activity". A good cuddle at a bonfire or something... okay. But, 8 hours of cuddling on the sofa watching football may not be the best idea. Not saying it ever led to anything inappropriate, but I could've done better.


What girl doesn't want to feel safe in the arms of a guy? I have heard women say that cuddling was just a way for a guy to get in their pants, but I don't think that's true. I'm curious to hear what others have to say, as well! :)

Depends on the couple. A couple committed to a chaste courtship sees cuddling as a way to get into each other's heart and soul, w/ no sexual motives.
