Single not dating
Christians tend to put the decision of who to date on the same level as the decision of who to marry.There’s so much pressure surrounding the topic, when at the end of the day, a first date is nothing more than getting to know someone better over a cup of coffee. For women who have been trying to find that illusive “special someone” for a while, this may seem like an impossible question to answer.
Maybe it’s time to prioritize our needs from our wants, and consider pursuing someone that might typically be considered “outside of our usual type.” There’s definitely a fear culture surrounding the topic of asking someone out on a date. It’s almost as though we’re so afraid to fail that we’d rather not even try.I think it’s time to exchange our fear for faith, and take the necessary steps to get healthy and then seek out a healthy relationship.If you’re at that point in life, here’s an article I wrote with some basic how-to’s of asking someone out on a date.
