Friday's Celebrity Former Frisky Virgin: Adriana Lima

Victoria's Secret bombshell, Adriana Lima, shocked all when in 2006 she revealed to GQ magazine that she was saving herself for marriage. "Sex is for after marriage," she stated. "They have to respect that this is my choice, if there's no respect that means they don't want me." (GQ magazine, 2006).

Adriana, now 29, is no stranger to dating celebrity men, but there was one man who waited: Serbian basketball star Marko Jaric, 32.  The two began dating in 2007, and on Valentine's Day 2009, they were married.

Anytime I start feeling a little in over my head, my mom likes to point to Adriana, to which my response is always the same: "Yeah, but, mom, she's a supermodel. Totally different." Still, it is nice to know there are men that will wait...for thinking time, positive thinking time.


  1. Listen missy..... you are fabulous and not only will the right guy realize you are worth the wait, he will also realize you are worth a lifetime! Capeche?

  2. Aww..this post made me well up in tears. I'm gonna go with Average Girl on this one...Listen to her. She's pretty smart!

  3. I second that motion. You will make the right guy not only very happy, but also very special. Who wouldn't feel special knowing that somebody saved herself/himself for them? You're on the right track!

  4. I totally agree with the others! You are a strong and beautiful person with an equally strong moral compass. You've made choices that many are not brave enough to make,that in the grand scheme of things are only a glimpse of who you are as a person. We can't ever let a single choice we make define 100% who we are. Keep being who you are and let life unfold in front of you my friend. You never know what (or who) is around the next corner.

    Peace and Blessings,

  5. Seems you have some amazing readers because I couldn't have said it better. Hang in there.

  6. To be fair, look at Jaric. He's lucky all he had to do was wait for Lima. He wasn't even a marquee player or anything; he basically conned the Clippers into drafting hm, and then the Timberwolves into giving him an insane contract.

  7. 1) See, it CAN happen. :) My husband and I waited for each other, too.
    2) Shut up about the supermodel stuff. As far as I'm concerned, you totally could be a supermodel. :)
