"You're not alone.  There's a lot of young people in the same boat.  The guilt about sex that you were raised with may be holding you back.  Just get out there and keep trying.  You've got your youth and good looks…"

"I grew up in the church, but always doubted. I met a nonmormon boy a little over a year ago and we hit it off. When we did agree we were ready for sex (we were both virgins), it was definitely very awkward at first. It was also very hard for me…"

"All of my experience as a tbm taught me that when it comes to sex is that it is good to be a boy or a girl."

"You can't read this that well but it's a little thing I tested out on Mormon chat because I honestly didn't know for sure what the stance was. But seriously, WTF"

Are Mormon's Christians and are FLDS Mormon

So Mormons are super offended when people say they aren't Christia's and some Christians are super offended when Mormons say they are Christian. I also know some Mormons who hate it when FLDS members are referred to as Mormon even though they have as much right to the title as the main church since Joseph Smith NEVER said that Brigham Young was his successor and so the different leaders just had their own words against each other and no proof that they were speaking to God.Anyway..I know that…See More

My Story:
I was raised in a very Mormon family but was never much of a true believer. After I graduated I moved in with my brother and started to do more church related things but I don't think I ever was really convinced but rather convinced myself that the only way for me to have a good life would be to convince myself that the church was true even if it wasn't. I had some "spiritual moments" and stuff but I feel like I basically turned my brain off so that I could believe. I left for a mission in April 2012. I met lots of good people at the MTC and learned a bit of Spanish. We watched a video with someone talking about how them joining Mormonism was against everything her family wanted her to do but she did it anyways. Afterwords I had a really strong feeling that I didn't have to be a Mormon to be accepted by my family. I started to care more truth instead of conformity. I wanted to leave but stayed because I was afraid of what would happen. I did a ton of scripture reading and praying but it didn't seem to anything. I still thought some kind of god was real but there just were to many inconsistencies with Mormonism and other religions that I didn't feel like I could just sweep under the rug. I came back after a month in the field and began to research the church from neutral and pro-sources, After a while I did research from anti-Mormon sources and everything fit together. Now I am an atheist and have a much higher appreciation of science.
If you went on an LDS mission, where and when did you go?
started one in Las Vegas 2012

Questions about Sex.

Posted on September 23, 2015 at 12:53am 3 Comments

So I've been out for a few years now and I still haven't had sex. I'm 23 and kind of bad at being social with other people. I've gone on about 5 dates in my whole life and have never been in any kind of romantic relationship or even kissed a girl but I want to get out there and start dating people. The problem is that I have no clue about anything sex related. I'm not interested in overly religious people so most of my potential dates are going to be far more sexperienced than me and I'm not…

Brother going on mission.

Posted on April 7, 2014 at 7:10pm 5 Comments

So my younger brother sent in his mission  papers and is getting ready to go on a mission. I told him that he needed to have a talk with me before he went but I don't really know what I should talk to him about. I came home early from a mission because I couldn't justify telling people that they should believe in the church. I think that the main reason I went in the first place was because I don't know what I wanted to do with my life and it seemed like it was a good opportunity to go…
