I am really thinking about getting a promise ring for a number of reasons. those reasons being, I want to wait to have sex until I'm married. I can't see myself hopping around to different guys and have sex. that's not who i am. Another reason is promising myself to live a healthy lifestyle, love myself and someone else (mostly me first then someone else, if I can't love me first then it will be hard for me to love someone else), respect myself and charish myself through the good and bad times. Also to not allow anyone to hurt me. I would rather hurt myself than hurt someone or have someone hurt me. I look at wearing a promise ring as more of a promise to myself about sex and commitment, but also about everything else involved in my life.
