land-mines are hidden, it is much easier to avoid them. You can make it through

Western culture - purpose of girls
The saturation of sexualized images of females is leading to body
hatred, eating disorders, low self-esteem, depression, high rates of teen
pregnancy and unhealthy sexual development in our girl children. It also leads
to impaired cognitive performance. In short, if we tell girls that looking
"hot" is the only way to be validated, rather than encouraging them to be
active players in the world, they underperform at everything else.
American Psychological Association
Seemingly normal guys have grown up to see and understand women as existing
for their pleasure.
The sexualisation of girls is not just shattering the lives of
girls and women, it is preventing boys and young men from relating to girls and
women as complex human beings with so much to offer them. It is preventing boys
from forming healthy friendships and working relationships with girls and
women. Instead, it is nurturing potentially violent abusers, rapists and johns?
(other relational problems). Ultimately, it means boys are not free to be
themselves, to know their own humanity.
American Psychological Association
Pornography prevents boys from forming normal and healthy
relationships with girls. Implicit (theme) in pornography is the understanding
that women exist to be exploited and exist primarily for the pleasure of men.
They do not need to be embraced as friends or wooed or admired. Rather, they
are to be conquered, used and left behind. Boys that immerse themselves in
pornography are not able to fulfill their God-given roles as leaders and
protectors. They are, instead, exploiters.
...she realized that men she dated just wanted to use her to act out what
they saw when they watched pornography. They didn't care for her as a woman or
even as a person, but saw her only as a means to achieving their porn-induced
fantasies. Young boys and girls are growing up now with this mindset.
Most women (girls) have no idea how powerful and pervasive
(effecting every part of us) the sex drive is for us men. Not a clue!
Girls have no idea what it does to a guy when he sees some
"illegal" skin - even a bare stomach can trigger him off. The present western
culture encourages girls to dress to get a sexual response.
Most guys have a lot of trouble with this - seems good in the immediate, but
causes lots of problems afterwards.
What a hassle it is - everywhere you look you get turned on without
meaning to. I'm having trouble controlling this and with some girls you just
don't know where to look when you are with them

What should a guy do? RUN AWAY!
When a guy sees a girl dressed to seduce, no doubt he looks, but the smart
guy doesn't buy in to it. Is this the girl you would take home to meet your
parents and extended family? Don't think that she will stop the seduction game
if you go out with her. This type of personality is often high on the chase
rather than the result. If you go out with her she will still be seducing other
guys behind your back - that is what her game is all about - conquests!
Girls like this are often still looking for their father's attention and
affirmation they missed out on as a little girl. That need is transferred to
any guy who will oblige a sexual favor. Problem is, that need can't be met that
way, so the relationship with the guy has no substance and probably won't
Pain - guy loses!
Some say it is like buying a car - you
have a good look at the flashy sports model but probably settle for something
more practical, cheap to run and will last a long time!
Prostitutes/Girls with lots of sex partners
For some guys it can be hard to resist the attention of this person who
seems to want you like you have never experienced before. If a girl is coming
on to you like this then wake up - she has already had sex with others and she
will go on and have sex with more after she has finished with you. Pain - you
lose big time
Sometimes well meaning "friends" will pressure you to have sex
with a prostitute because you couldn't possibly go much longer as a virgin and
still enjoy life. You need to stand by your convictions and take control of the
situation. NO is the answer. If they persist, ask them which part of 'NO' they
don't understand - the 'N' or the 'O'!
Remember, you are the one in control of your life - not your friends. If you
think your friends will like you more if you do what they say then think again
- they will find something else to bug you about - that is their nature if they
are hassling you and their nature won't change!
Several girls at a Boston High School formed a pact to get pregnant
and raise their babies together.
wbztv 19th June 2008, Time magazine report
This one made the news - there are plenty of other 1 person pacts out there.
The girl sometimes thinks the baby will give her the love she is craving!
How would you know a girl was like this? Very physical with you, doing
things to sexually arouse you, pressure to have sex, coming on strong!
How would you feel at the time? Probably overwhelmed that someone wanted
your body this much! Hooked on the attention!
How will you feel in the end? Used and abused with your heart ripped
Joseph was a strikingly handsome man. As time went on, his master's
wife became infatuated with Joseph and one day said "Sleep with
He wouldn't do it.... She pestered him day after day, but he stood
his ground. He refused to go to bed (have sex) with her.
On one of these days he came to the house to do his work and none
of the household servants happened to be there. She grabbed him by his coat
saying, "Sleep with me!" He left his coat in her hand and ran out of the house.
When she realized that he had left his coat in her hand and run outside she
called her house servants: "This Hebrew shows up and before you know it he's
trying to seduce us. He tried to make love to me but I yelled as loud as I
could. With all my yelling and screaming, he left his coat beside me here and
When his master heard his wife's story....Joseph's master took him
and threw him into jail...
The Message Bible - Genesis 39
Sometimes you might have to run physically and get out of a
situation or deliberately avoid certain other situations. Other times you might
have to run in your mind and put a "wall" up so the girl knows you are not
available. Also stop flirting and giving signals to "come on".
Don't fool around with a woman like that;
Don't even stroll through her neighborhood.
Countless victims come under her spell;
she's the death of many a poor man.
The Message Bible - Proverbs 7
What sort of girl then?
First, become friends. Then become good friends. Then become
really good friends. She needs to be embraced as a friend and wooed (seeking
affection and love) and admired. This takes time - lots of time and it can't be
hurried. There are exceptions, but the best long term relationships appear to
be when two become best friends, then marry and start having sex together. The
sex completes an already great relationship. The sex with one who you have
become good friends will be much more rewarding than immediate sex with a
person using you to satisfy themselves!
Where are you going to find a girl like this in a culture that says "do it
now"? Clue - she probably won't be the girl dressed to turn you on with a
glance at her exposed body! She won't be the one with her hand down your pants
She will be a girl living to some sort of standard and big picture for her
life. A committed Christian is a possibility here. If you are a committed
Christian too, then there would be some common goal in the relationship and
purpose to both of your lives. You would both be walking in the Bible standard
of being "equally yoked" together.
(The term is from old days when two oxen were used to plough
fields - if both oxen had the same purpose in pulling the plough, all went
well. If they had different purposes or motivations, then nothing worked
Sounds old fashion by the cultural standards continually thrown at you? No
doubt, but it still works - ask happily married couples who have been together
for a long time.
Give credit to your partner for keeping you happy, give and
forgive, enjoy spending time with each other, share the same beliefs.
Interview with couple married 60 years - Sunday Telegraph Feb 10th 2008
Chemistry is when you hit if off with a girl and you seem to
have some sort of connection together. The feeling is great and there is
something you like about being together.
It could be love, lust, infatuation you are feeling. This link gives a great
infatuation/lust and love. The link also has some
great information on defining love and relationships.
My "friend" finds a particularly girl really sexy, but everyone
knows she manipulates people by using emotions - like you do what I want and I
will like you. What should "he" do?
16 year old boy, Australia
Tell your "friend" to stay away from her because she won't change her method
of relating to others - you, I mean "he" is in for a lot of pain with a
manipulator like her! Finding someone sexy is not a reason to follow through
with a relationship. If it was a reason, then in the future you will definitely
be unfaithful to your marriage partner - because all guys find someone else
sexy at times. Become friends with someone else who is not going to use
That girl you really like
Strange how when you really like someone, you have trouble
talking to them and feel uneasy in a way when you are together. You can be
great friends and then you officially graduate to "going together" and things
change. Neither of you are spontaneous or feel relaxed any more when you are
both together - at least at the start.
The easy answer is - there is no easy answer! You need to continue being
yourself - after all, that is what attracted that person to you in the first
place. Be honest about how you feel - they will probably be feeling similar to
You need to learn how to relate to girls and that girl in particular. It is
not all about you anymore. If you want the relationship to grow, then it has to
be about her now! Learn what her "
love language" is and speak her love
Original plan - purpose of girls and guys
"It's not good for the Man to be alone, I'll make him a helper, a
companion"....God made woman and presented her to the Man.
The Message Bible - Genesis 2
Equals - a man and woman complement each other's unique
biological nature - physical, emotional, mental. Together they are designed to
share the highest pleasure available on earth with their shared lives and
sexual relationship based in marriage.
From a Christian perspective, God has put you on earth with unique abilities
with a purpose to fulfill during your life time. The right girl will add her
abilities to your abilities to more completely fulfill that purpose. There is a
unique satisfaction from finding and fulfilling your unique purpose.
It is better to have a partner than go it alone,
Share the work, share the wealth.
And if one falls down, the other helps,
But if there is no one to help, tough!
Two in a bed warm each other.
Alone, you shiver all night.
The Message Bible - Ecclesiastes 4
If you want a girl friend to show you are cool or to show you are not gay or
to keep your friends quiet, then don't go ahead! You and the girl will probably
end up hurt and worse off - you are actually using her for your own
If you want to be friends from within you, then why not? Talk
to your parents or a trusted adult first. With more age on their side they can
see things more clearly than you can - trust me on this one! We can often smell
motives way before they become obvious to younger guys.
Always remember that an adult who really loves you is committed to making
sure you don't do anything that might give you pleasure! lol Really though, we
usually look at the bigger picture and help you to see from that perspective
because we want you to have the best for your whole life, not just the present
moment. You might find a lot of fun playing near the top of a cliff - we want
to make sure you don't go over the edge and be affected badly for the rest of
your life - get the difference?
