Has anyone ever taken a vow of celibacy?

If so, how long did you go for? How did it work for you?

    In a sense I have.  I have terrible luck with men and basically feel like I couldn't pick a good one if my life depended on it.I broke things off with my ex fiance a year ago in August, so I have been 100% single for 17 months.  I have been happier in this past 17 months than I can ever remember, focusing on my son, work, enjoying going places with my son and just working on me.  A few months ago I was talking to a guy for a few weeks, we met up at Starbucks once, but I chose not to pursue that because he wanted to just be fwb and I am no longer willing to accept that type of "relationship".

    I've been sex free for almost two years.  I won't even sleep with my next SO unless we are serious.  I won't  allow myself to get hurt again.  And, I'm not one to have sex so easily.  I was with the wrong man for many, many years.

     No, I've never taken a vow. I have been/am celibate but I never take a vow to do it.

    I have. I broke up with my ex 3 years ago and I have not  had sex in 4 years.  I am not ever planning on having relations with a guy ever again.

    A vow? no...

    i'm abstinate right now by choice, yes.. I'm single, have been since I was pregnant with our second dd. She's now 2, and until recently I haven't had any desire to date.  Even if I dated now, I really am not looking for sex until the relationship gets serious... this isn't for religious reasons, but more because I'm a mother of two girls... I have an example to set.
