From another post, it gave me the idea that CM needs a Chastity "support" forum.

This is a serious issue for single Catholics, for those who are trying to live purely, and feel no support from the secular world.

It could be a tool for education, for those who have not yet been a victor in the struggle, and where people could ask for help and answers and prayers.

While I could see it possibly needing some rules about how to word posts, and parameters for the tone of such conversations, I think some people would find it very helpful and edifying.

Maybe if there could be a way to post anonymously in such a room as well.

Just something to think about.

Reminds me of an ex-CM woman I liked from June 2004 - Oct 2005.


She said there was only ONE man she would have married (she never married) before she met me.


She said that ONE man, on his first date w/ her, said simply "I don't fool around".


A person need not say that on the 1st date, but if they're committed to that, it usually is evident by the 5th date.

Food for thought ....

I would think this is a topic of general interest and is effectively discussed in the "single life" forum. Not sure why it might merit a special room, since it applies to all of us....

Thanks Marge and Donna, but I don't agree.

When these sort of posts are in the general discussion rooms, you get all kinds of dissent, people calling you judgmental for being chaste/wanting someone who is chaste, and just like the Widowed room does not want people who don't know their experience commenting on/telling them what to do/expounding on what they don't have first hand experience with, this would be a place where those who wish to be chaste can speak freely and get support.

So that is why I stated this suggestion here.

I would assume we all want to be chaste... boggled

It's not a bad idea, but I agree with the others, that since all of us here are subject to it, why single out the issue.

This type of concern, I think, would be best in pink/blue rooms, where there would be more freedom of words.

I have never noted any problems in the forums, or elsewhere, where others were degraded for living a chaste lifestyle.

If we all wanted to be chaste, everyone would answer yes to that question in the _/7 questions, and as we sadly know to be true, many people don't answer that affirmatively.

I have noticed people not being supportive on this issue, and the conversation devolving down into others calling posters "judgmental" for wanting to live a holy and pure life, etc.

Who needs that?

This is true: one may not be a 7/7, or lie about it, or change their mind given particular situations. I think it best to assume one is truthful though. One thing about chastity... it is a private issue.
