I Kissed Dating Goodbye wasn’t just a book people read; it was a book they obeyed. It prompted some people to marry the first person they dated, even if they were unhappy together; to view the opposite sex with fear and suspicion; or to be afraid of starting any relationships at all. Others have struggled with viewing sexual abuse as evidence they were tainted. As one recent response on Harris’ site put it, “I feel the only man I deserve is one who is broken like me.”

And a link to an article cited in this one. Why Don't the Guys in my Church Ask Women on Dates?

Chock full of laughs for vicious apostates like me.

Lol. My wife's best friend was one of those. She got knocked up sophomore year. We treated 'em all like cult members; you could hang but you knew you'd either have to run or deprogram.

I know no one who didn't either disavow the whole thing after a few years in real life or spiral down into white trash hell.
