We had a great time together. As the dance was ending Sam pulled me aside and told me how much he liked me. He said that he could tell that I was different from other girls…for a while I wondered what he meant by that. We went on a few more dates and soon we were girlfriend and boyfriend. As I spent more time with Sam, I began to notice that he was also a bit different than other guys I knew. One night as Sam leaned over to kiss me goodnight before dropping me off from a date, I just blurted out; “Why do you think I am different from other girls?”
Sam explained how he recognized that I respected myself and seemed to be cautious and careful when making decisions. He then told me that he intended to save sex for when he is in love with a women and is married to her. In that moment I realized that this is what set Sam apart from the other guys I knew.
After graduating from high school, Sam and I attended different universities. We found that being in a long distance relationship was challenging, but I knew Sam was worth it. I made many new friends in college. I watched a lot of friends become broken and damaged by relationships in which they gave too much of themselves too quickly. I was thankful for Sam.
After graduating from University, Sam and I got married. Six years may seem like a long time to wait, but it went by quickly. We were able to save ourselves a lot of worry and stress. I was always comforted in knowing that Sam desired me and not just sex.
