If we’re creating our sexual sobriety plan while single, we should do so knowing that we may feel a need to revise our plan (or at least to explain our plan) if and when we start dating—especially if the relationship seems serious.

Usually, simply explaining the reasoning behind our new limitations tends to soften the impact.

Task for Today
