Lolo Jones, Olympic Running Star, Worries Virginity is Holding Her Back

by at . Comments

She's got looks, class, brains and Olympic-level talent.

Lolo Jones still can't land a steady boyfriend, however.

Jones, whose real first name is Lori, has been looking online, but she admitted on HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel that she hasn't had too much luck.

The biggest detriment, she says? Her virginity.

"It's something, a gift I want to give my husband," the 29-year-old hurdler says. "This journey has been hard. It's the hardest thing I've ever done."

"Harder than training for the Olympics. Harder than studying for college has been staying a virgin before marriage. I've been tempted."

She says she's even considered its impact on her sport: "I've had guys tell me … 'Hey, you know, if you have sex, it'll help you run faster.'"

Lolo Jones didn't buy that suggestions, she says, despite how much she wants that gold medal. She then says, "If you marry me, then yeah."

If only many men and women out there can be like her. Waiting till they get married. This is the true meaning of a holy marriage, between a male and a female only, once in a lifetime (except after the death of the spouse) and to have a sexual relationship only after marriage... it is no wonder its called "holy matrimony" I am proud of you please continue keeping up with what you believe in..

Maybe.... Lolo Jones and Tim Tebow should date! I'm not making fun of either of them. It's great that they're saving this special stuff for marriage.
