Speaking of celibacy, how soon would you want to know . . .Page 1 of 1    
So what's a guys perspective on this [not the choice to wait itself, let's be clear] - when to share that information?

ASAP for less time-wastin on both sides, paste a postit note on yer forehead so that most every guy winkin' at ya can clearly see it and head the other way..

As another said, there are specialty sites where that may be considered more of a virtue than here.

I wouldn't ever put it in a public profile, but I'd mention it very soon in the first few contacts with someone. Putting it on a publicly viewed profile would just be fly paper for the nutjobs........

I think she should put it in her profile. But, I think she should put it at the bottom of her profile after she's mentioned everything else that she wants to mention. That way, if he's already interested in contacting her, he'll not be put off by her mentioning that.

Should she flat out put it in her profile

yes. you do yourself a disservice if you don't, because at least half the guys who start conversations will end them once they know. the time you save is your own.

"If a woman is saving herself for marriage, how soon do you think she should tell the guy?"

First or second date.

Pointless to hide long term goals like this, and putting it on the profile is even better.

I think you should wait till the subject comes up. If he really likes you it shouldn't be too long.

It's not like your virtue, beliefs, or preferences are everybody's business anyway. Might be a few guys out there saving themselves too!

I wouldn't put it on your profile, bad idea. I'd mention it the second date, third at the latest, sooner if it naturally comes up before then.

When spider webs begin to form around and bats fly out of her nether regions. I mean, give us some warning, please...
