I am a singlet living in Provo, UT; It comes with a lot of baggage. If you aren't Mormon you probably won't understand most of this post, but bear with me and don't think we're too weird.
Two weeks ago we had a two hour meeting in Church called "That's the Way it Is," which is the code word for "Bishop's Semesterly Chastity Talk." For two hours the single men learned about he evils of pornography and were made to feel like we would be destroyed if we tried any funny business on a first date.
Then last Sunday we had another two hour meeting, this time on dating. We were encouraged heavily to ask girls out and kiss them. How do you figure? Did they expect us to just disregard everything we learned the previous week? My head is spinning like a gelid ice cube on a skating rink. I'm damned if I do and I'm damned if I don't. It's no wonder there are so many singlets in Provo.
