You can maintain your integrity and wait for marriage for sex. A bold and outspoken Christian woman is proof of that.

When I first learned about Oretha Winston, an over-40 abstinent woman who is proudly waiting for marriage to have sex, I knew I had to share her story.

The lead editor of, who reached out to our editors, was once stunned after being berated for her faith and convictions on a Christian dating site. Yet, she remains determined to wait for Mr. Right.

And I applaud her for that.

According to a 2014 article written by Winston, the insulting online dater “chastised me as being ‘a fake’ ‘unchurched’ and ‘un-biblical’. The truth is that I was 100% clear in my preferences.  Yes, I know this limits my pool, but it allows me to have a common base to start with.”

Setting her standards in stone and being upfront about them helps Winston avoid connecting with someone who isn’t like-minded.

So then, this writer with a true passion for the things of God, knows exactly what she wants in a mate.
