From my experience I say RUN!!. Tried it for 75 years, was always a source of issues. Deep down, she knows, she KNOWS, you are so bad, so evil, so sick, you deserve, repeat, deserve to be sent to hell forever and tortured, not just forced to watch reruns of I Love Lucy but burned, your skin torn off, anal forever. She will say no at first, but ask if she thinks you will go to hell for your beliefs. If she really believes the church BS, she will say yes, ask her if it s just, that s where it will get weird, but ask if its God s will that you go to hell, yes of course, then is God right? Of course, So you deserve it ? Wellll,,, yes. And her family and friends will think the same way. They believe you are lower than pond scum, worse that child rapist, worse than a mass murderer, that is if they repent.
Do you have a thing for that pretty girl in your youth group or your church? Is there a particularly religious girl in one of your classes that you've got your eye on? With a few simple steps, it's not hard to show your affection and, hopefully, to get her to like you back. Being too vocal or forward may be more off-putting to a romantically reserved and careful Christian girl than it would be to the average girl. However, with a little charm, real Christian values, and a warm heart, you can woo her!
Waiting for God to whack you on the head and tell you whom to marry isn t faith it s fear. Many people want nothing to do with dating because of the risk and potential pain that it involves. This is certainly understandable, as dating can have traumatic results in unhealthy circumstances. But what do you think serves us better in the long run? Growing and suffering in the process of learning or a revelation that lets us off the hook? I would have loved to know that the beautiful woman I was talking to would one day be my wife, but I might not have worked as hard to earn her hand in marriage. I would have missed a lot of experiences that made me a better man.
And for my two-cents in defense of air guitar. I never have really seen a point for it, but it can 8767 t be more pointless than me taking a walk in the rain. BUT I myself have been known to do some air guitaring mostly for my teen-brother 8767 s entertainment. We do it together sometimes, like while we are working in the kitchen or pruning tree branches (or listening to 8775 Sadie Hawkins 8767 Dance 8776 by Reliant K) and my mom and sister both think we are nuts.
I did not pull the punches either. I put my father in law in his place when homosexuality came up and shut him and his religious arguments down fast. He had never been challenged before in his beleifs. I gained a lot of respect from him for actually went out and looked up the information. He still does not like homosexuality, but we got him to the level of as long as it does not impact his life he no longer cares.
I know, and fwy, Jess Jessie, I was only kidding. Thanks for joining the conversation, Mallory. Btw, I love your name.
That thing about air guitar is a little much, I think the competitions and stuff.
I know! Reading where some of the comments on this blog start to rabbit trail reminds me of actually being in a room full of teenagers. It 8767 s hysterical. 😉
Thanks for the info on air guitar, glad you joined in the convo.
I admit I ve never heard it put that way, but the implication is out there. Any lecture or book on dating inevitably includes something about sex (and, yes, this one does too). Frequently, the message is Control yourself! Your sex drive is out to get you! It s just waiting for one weak moment to jump out and turn you into a nymphomaniac and demolish your soul. And then we wonder why so many Christians end up with sexual problems, both before and after marriage.
Her parents are actually pretty nice people. (Not fucking fanatics luckily) so I think it could actually work out. I mean, we haven t had any hardcore discussion nor fights or problems about it. We ve had long term and polite talks about it, and even tho it all is cool and nice, I feel like she could start feeling weird about it at some point. Maybe it s just me, but it s something I don t want.
lol. I know the feeling. My dad just started talking about girls to me in Books-A-Million. (Aka BAM! ) loi. But honestly, the reason they probably do that is because that 8767 s the only real time they have with us. The rest of the time we 8767 re on our phones, computers, video games, or where your siblings can hear by putting their ear to the wall from their bedroom. So, other then a car ride, that 8767 s all they really have.

One day, I heard from his sister why he liked me as a friend but not as a potential spouse. It hurt, but I tried to move on. As God would have it, I met Josephine soon a slightly older girl from another church who sounded exactly like whom Matt was looking for (according to the criteria I heard from his sister). Determined to act as a good friend, I set Josephine up with Matt. They hit it off and married within 67 months.
Christian girls are not asking you to be perfect, although it may seem like it sometimes. They are simply asking you to step up and go against what society says is popular, in order to lead the next generation in their pursuit for Jesus Christ. Do realize that you&rsquo ll never become this type of man on your own. It takes a lot of persistence and drive, but you are never alone. God, Himself, is your biggest supporter. There is no one out there who believes in you or wants you to succeed more than Him. Trust Him to shape you into all that you can be, which will significantly impact your ability to catch the heart of a wonderful Christian woman some day.
Against popular belief, Christian girls actually can and do appreciate a guy who is willing to be vulnerable with them. This does not mean you need to tell her everything about your past or every thought you have - of course not! This does mean, however, that you are willing to be honest with her, and open to sharing more of who you are at some level. So many guys believe that being macho and coming off as though they have it all together is what girls want. But, while girls do want someone who is able to be strong, they also want a guy who is not afraid to express who he really is to them and even to others.
Me and my boyfriend have been together for a while and I really want to get us purity/promise rings. I 8767 ve found some nice ones online, but I 8767 d really rather go to a shop to get them so we can get them sized and just have the experience of it. I 8767 ve tried looking online for some places, but only find places with promise rings that lack the religious aspect, which is what is most important to us. If anyone knows any places, I 8767 d really appreciate some suggestions.
Also I like to point out that sometimes we rather look for physical appearance rather than LOVE. Honestly, when I see pretty girls I always say that I am going to marry her but is it really love?. I realized it wasn 8767 t love I desire their physical appearance rather than their heart or personality. The point is, it is not about the look of the person but it is about the good things you see in them like personality. What attractive to me is when a girl desire God because I knew I want to spend my life with her pursuing God and living the life of Christ.
Good luck finding this one in the Bible. There is plenty of stuff about God s will for his people, God wanting good things for you, and God s ultimate plan. Nowhere, however, does it say that God picked out a spunky brunette whom he s waiting to spring on you at the right moment. I m not saying that he doesn t. When it comes to God, I m pretty careful about saying what he does or doesn t do. But I do know this& mdash if you rely on this idea too much, your dating life will get really confusing.
The trick we have to pull off is holy, healthy expression of our sexuality before marriage. It s not easy, but it can be done. It will look different for different people, but it needs to be expressed. Otherwise it will force its way out. Look at the crisis of Internet pornography running rampant through the church. Men are dying for a way to embrace and express their sex drives. You can t ignore your sexuality, and you can t white knuckle your way through life until your wedding night. Your sexuality isn t bad. It s not sinful or dirty. It s a gift from God, and we need to figure out a way to embrace that gift before marriage.
Compliments! Ahem! Well, here goes. I 8767 ll try not to seem as if I 8767 m asking to be buttered up. XD Anyway! The best kind of compliments are compliments about my character. I do like compliments about my looks and personality but my looks and personality can change, and they are surface stuff. The compliments that really make me glow are about my character. Complimenting girls 8767 characters also shows that you care about character which suggests that you have a good character! XD But, of course, make sure that your compliments are sincere.
Boy, I 8767 m beginning to feel like I 8767 m pretending to be a love expert. What about you guys? What kind of compliments do you think are the best?
Obsession with violence in a guy is about as unattractive to me as it must be for some of you guys when some of we girls watch and read romance movies or novels to the point where we can’t talk about much of anything else. (This is coming from the girl who enjoyed Captain America 7 as much as the next person, and watched Jane Eyre last night.) I believe that there is a place and time for non-gratuitous, well-resolved violence but obsession with anything is unhealthy and just flat-out not good (unless it is an obsession with Christ 😉 ).
Thanks, David. I appreciate that. And it 8767 s so true, emotional pain is a difficult thing to battle through thanks for addressing that particular part of my comment.
I haven 8767 t met a guy who has tried to get me to lower my standards most of the time I find myself being my greatest enemy on that part. Thank you so much for the encouragement!
I second David 8767 s final encouraging words: wait on God. He 8767 s got something/someone amazing prepared for you!
But as it is written, 8775 What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him 8776 6 Corinthians 7:9
8775 For I know the plans I have for you, 8776 declares the Lord, 8775 Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future. 8776 Jeremiah 79:66
