There were phrases like 'Don't date unless you're ready to get married' or at the age where you can support yourself on your own.
Or 'Guard your heart, particularly as a woman.' I was told that even crushes were giving away a piece of myself," Maynard told CP.
While "sex may be the determining factor" for some Christians "we're even seeing that line blurred," said Anderson."And in every other respect, we're generally seeing the same kind of attitudes and practices," said Anderson, listing "dating ad nauseum, dating indefinitely, dating someone without any specific game plan, and dating recreationally without a view toward marriage," as examples of ways that the Church has adopted the patterns of the larger secular culture."For the Christian culture it's extremely frustrating, because they are trying to go after something lasting, but they're using the same formula to get something that's just not going to get them there," said Anderson.
While Lindsey grew up in the church, she said it rarely emphasized reading the Bible or one's relationship with God.
As an adolescent, her mother's only sex-ed advice was to use birth control when she became sexually active.
Instead, she entered and exited relationships frequently, often sleeping with the men she was dating."Even though I knew it was wrong, I continued to have sex outside of marriage," Lindsey told The Christian Post. Because when you're single you don't want to be lonely.""I was the girl that broke up with one boyfriend and had another one on speed-dial—that afternoon I'd already be going out with somebody else.
I kept a boyfriend because I liked the attention," she continued.
