question only for buddhist practitioners (laity), is ok for a lay practitioner to be chaste?

As a lay practicioner of buddhism ( not talking about monkhood) is ok to be chaste, to practise chastity, even not being a monk ? I know from the point of view of the Dhamma there’s no restriction against having sex ( with morality) if you’re not a monk. But, what if I want to practice chastity by now, until I get married or have a girlfriend? I mean, according to the Dhamma is ok to live like that?

If you’re not buddhist or at least don’t have any good knowledge, please don’t answer this question.
