When sex happens before commitment, you'll tend to read more into the relationship than what's actually there.
If you choose the path of courtship, you'll become clearer on what matters most to you, what's acceptable and not acceptable to you and realize your self-worth.
You'll feel cherished, cared for and respected.
You're physically intimate when it's right for both of you and when you do, it is magical.
Courtship takes more courage because you have to be authentic, open, vulnerable and live without knowing the outcome.
If you're a woman who is used to taking charge, trying backing off of that approach. If you do, there's a high chance that you'll end up in a "friends with benefits" relationship where he'll sleep with you, but won't ask you out.
