Everyone has that one person they want to spend the most time with: their crush, their significant other, or maybe just someone you have a lot of fun with. Whichever person you choose to spend time with this summer, you guys probably need some help deciding what would be super fun and make for a great day. Here are some of my top picks for Summer Dates:

1. Picnics

What better "outdoor dinner" is there other than a picnic? Picnics seem a bit cliche;however, sharing a picnic with someone you enjoy being around really could be a great experience. I mean who doesn't love the sun hitting their skin while they have a big sandwich in their hand?

2. Trips to the Lake

One of my favorite places to be at is at the lake. A day on the lake just gives you a good feeling. A feeling that you can't get from a day at the pool or even on the beach. Being at the lake with you significant other, well it can't get much better than that.

3. Go to a Drive-In Movie

Drive-in movie theaters remind me of my childhood. My family and I used to go to the local Drive-in theater and watch our favorite features. Going to the Drive-in is different from going to the movie theater because you're outside under the stars watch a flick with one of your favorite people in the world.

4. Take a Trip to the Baseball Game

Going to a baseball game is always a great date idea, because baseball games are fun whether your team wins or loses. If you do go to the game, you have to take a picture together. If you don't take a picture together did you actually even go?

5. Fishing

Who doesn't love to get their feet in the water, grab a fishing pole, and catch a huge bass? Fishing is a great date idea because you can spend a lot of time together, and you guys can talk as you fish. It's also fun to have a little friendly competition.

6. Kayaking

"Couple who workout together stay together" and kayaking is quite the workout. Kayaking can be lots of fun because you can be out in the middle of a lake or ocean and nothing be around you except the one person you want to be there with you. Kayaking also opens the door to observe the beautiful scenery around you.

7. Go on a Hike

Hiking is a great way to just get outdoors and explore. Even though the hike itself might be difficult the ending product is worth it. The view will be outstanding, but sharing the view with your date is extraordinary.

8. Outdoor Concerts

Everyone loves a good concert, but during the summer time when the sun goes down the party gets started up. Outdoor concerts can be super exciting, and what better person to spend it with than your crush?

Don't let this summer fly by without spending time with your crush, and going on great dates with them that only the summer time can provide. Live for this summer, because you never know what next summer will hold.

To Everyone Who Hasn't Had Sex Yet, Wait For Marriage, It's The Right Move

If you have not had sex yet, wait.

Premarital sex is not a new concept, no matter how much people like to pretend it is. You can trace scripture and historical texts back thousands of year to see that lust and fornication have been a problem since… well, since we humans have been problems.

They tell you in sex ed that sex causes you to form a bond with someone. They throw some big chemical names at you that are apparently in your body and cause that emotional attachment to happen, then you move on (or back to) how important condoms are and why STDs are so scary.

As a middle schooler or teenager, you can't understand what it means to become permanently connected to someone as a result of a quick, physical act.

If you haven't even had your first kiss, you really can't imagine what it's like to develop such a complex and intimate connection with someone because you have yet to feel the butterflies in your stomach from a kiss. So you really don't know what it's like to have a whole different type of feeling in your stomach.

You never forget your first love. It's one of the most cliche things you consistently hear, but it's true. Ask anyone. I guarantee your parents can still spurt out their first love's name in a few seconds. And most people never forget their first time. I know all my friends can recount that often awkward and slightly terrifying moment as if it happened an hour ago. When you mix those two, especially if you are in your teens, oh boy.

You never forget that. No matter how hard you try.

Everything you hear about sex is true: it's amazing, fantastic, life-changing, etc. There's a reason people have done it as frequently as they do, for as long as they have. But every time you sleep with someone, you leave a piece of yourself with them. Every time you choose to take that final physical step with someone, you cannot go back and collect that piece of your dignity and soul that you left with someone.

So, imagine what happens when you break up with someone you've slept with. Or that you just hooked up with. You have given someone a little slice of yourself forever. And you can never get it back. And imagine what happens when you do that multiple times. You give a piece of yourself to five, 10, 15, 20 or more people. Then you meet the person that you want to spend forever with. And you no longer have that whole part of you. You've given pieces away, and you can no longer give those to the love of your life.

So, save those pieces for your future spouse.

If you have not had sex yet, wait. If you have, consider not giving more pieces of yourself away to people who are not your spouse. Sex was created to be between two spouses, nobody else. So we need to try to maintain its integrity.
