Christian dating advice for women confluence blog posts not updating
When we start dating, however, it’s common for many of us to slowly channel the energy that we’ve been investing in our relationship with Him into our newfound love.
My skin kinda crawls and I think, “Man, I’m so glad over.” Terrible, right?
I also always hear girls saying things like, “I want a man to pursue me.” Well, that’s swell. Except that the girls spouting this line are then the same girls who sit on the sidelines and don’t do anything while expecting to get a date. I mean smile, be interested, be interesting, ask questions, touch his shoulder, laugh at his jokes. There is also a camp among Christians who fear dating.
They think it will turn into a tempting situation (which it could), or that God hasn’t “called” them to date anyone (which may be true).
And, they did it because they didn’t like the secular options and hoped their faith tradition could provide them with unique insights.
But, the Christian dating advice for men was, looking back, pretty terrible. Their wisdom usually centered on tips such as: treat women like queens, suppress all natural urges, and be a nice guy.
