In the book of Mark, a blind man had his friends take him to Jesus to be healed for his eyesight. We had to be specific. It also gives you heightened discernment in dating situations. The list keeps your standards in check and can help you quickly discern whether or not that guy gets a second date. It protects your heart against unnecessary wear and tear.

Now, each one of your lists is going to have unique things according to who you are, your quirks, likes and dislikes. But there are some fundamental traits that God wants to be non-negotiables.
Over 30. Still single. No prospects. Is something wrong with you?
Out of the men that were significant in my life, only TWO have ever been married. Those two did want to marry me, but both of them knew that I wasn’t having it due to issues specific with them and our relationships, but both of them did go on to marry the very next women that they were with after me. A lot of times, I think it is not really about the woman and how wonderful she is, it is more so about being in a man’s life at the period in which he feels he is ready for marriage and is seeking a wife.

After a while no matter how big it is or how great it works, if that is the only part of him that has any substance, the attraction will wain. That said, if you want to be attractive to the opposite sex, it makes sense to make an effort with your appearance. I know a man with breath that can be smelt from about twenty paces.. Personal Positivity If you have a positive outlook and tend to approach dating and your relationships from a positive perspective, you are highly likely to draw in people that reflect the very positive things that you feel about yourself and life.
Hence it makes sense that if you want to be attractive to people who want to live the same positive life you profess to want, it makes sense to radiate that positivity first. Personal negativity tends to draw in people that reflect the negative things that we believe about ourselves, love, and relationships.
Are women worried about being single in their late 30s?
By her mid 30s it had entered the zeitgeist. What if I told you that you could reunite Romeo and Juliet? Or Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston? Stay away from John Mayer. The tabloids are generally hot garbage, but why did they become so fixated on cramming Aniston into the conformist narrative of female happiness?
Back in February I had an interesting exchange with commenter TuffLove. The conversation focused on his recent singleness due to his wife of some years feeling the call of the Alpha and decided cheat on him, later divorce him and then take up with an even more Beta fellow not long after her ‘fling’ (his story).

This blog post has been expanded and clarified in my book Courtship in Crisis. For months we could talk of little else. After reading it myself, I grew into as big an opponent of dating as you could find. Dating was evil and Courtship, whatever it was, was godly, good and Biblical. I explained what courtship was and quoted Joshua Harris, chapter and verse.
Their response surprised me. I tried to convince them but to no avail. They both obstinately held to the position that courtship was a foolish idea. Well, what did they know?
College Showed Me The Cultish Nature Of Feminized Christianity
Walking into church was definitely one of those times for me. When I was single, I remember quietly sliding into the pew all by myself. I usually chose the end seat toward the back so I could have a quick getaway if need be. Sometimes, it was easier to avoid people than to have to take the initiative to approach them.
I was speaking to my pastor several years ago about being in my early 40s, single, with no prospects and no understanding of the “why behind the what.” For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out why an attractive, godly, fun, strong, intelligent, fit and fabulous human being like me couldn’t get a date!
There are 6 things you can do while dating in your 40s that will make still being single much more enjoyable. Be grateful for your experience. Remember what that was like years ago? Talk about confusing times. I know when I was in my 20s I was a hot mess. The thing to do was get a 6-pack of beer and sit on the raggedy couch on the front porch, or go to a party. Not only do you get to have great dates when your dating in your 30s or 40s.
Dating in Your 30s and 40s: Yes, women are generally more connected to their emotions and maybe more mature than men, but most men that you will meet for a date now will have had as much life experience as you. Imagine this happening in your younger days. You know, one that takes place at a restaurant, wine bar or coffee shop?
5 Reasons I Don’t Like Living in Korea
I am a female bachelor in my 40s. The Barbie dream car, friends call it. My biological clock has simply never ticked. It is a fact. My car has been the setting for countless conversations about my household of one. Another friend noted the lack of a back seat and suggested I get a different car.

Five Reasons Why You Should Never Chase a Guy
There I found eight questions all saying the same thing: I hope you are, too. Did you hear that? In fact, any evidence that I provide that contradicts you is only going to make you believe in your original premise more. How many people have a job or go to school?
(Today’s guest post is from Nina Borum! You can read her blog for more great writing. If you want to write a guest post, send it here.). Despite my passion for christian dating values and practices I must admit that sometimes I’ve considered turning to the “world” aka COSMOPOLITAN for dating advice.
Vincent Law Vincent is just another immigrant from Mosk who has been trying all his life to become a fellow citizen. Check out his blog at atavisticintelligentsia. They were the real deal: But being an immigrant, and clueless to boot, I had no idea what kind of craziness to expect. Full disclosure, in my beta boy angst, I was easily seduced by the easy smiles and talk of community, acceptance, and Christian life. I even went on a retreat with the group where I saw feminized Christianity at its best.
Luckily I made it out unscathed, with a tale or two for you, dear readers. She lamented how God had not yet sent her a man and described how hard she had worked at her career and how she had a few men that walked out on her earlier in her life, leading her to take a break from dating. She claimed that she found God at this time, leading her to only pursue men in a Christian manner, which I assume meant not frequenting the same dive bars.

Jenson, a systematic theologian specializing in the doctrine of sin and ecclesiology, has found that his studies in sin and the church directly relate to the single life. Here, he shares some of his experience, the falsehoods of rom-coms and how the church can better address the changing landscape of the church family. In recent years, you’ve become an expert on singleness in the church.
The single stigma exists for men too As this is a dating site and often full of articles dealing with issues to do with relationships, dating and how to find a partner, I do like to remind people every once in a while that being single is also absolutely fine.
Laura July 14, Wow! Thank you for your honesty and for taking off your mask. We were not designed by God for this. Your blogs are so well written and inspire me so much. I pray peace, love and prosperity over you my sister in Christ! Jennifer July 14, This was a well timed post. I found out today my divorce was final. After 22 years of marriage.

What if I Never Get Married? The Feared Call of Singleness
Paul June 27, at 9: Singles ministry continues to be a struggle in most churches. I believe its spiritual warfare as the resources are out there to help churches start and grow their ministries.
It’s easy to assume that guys who are still single in their late 20s or 30s or 40s are just unwilling to put themselves out there. We assume, a bit like Job’s counselors, that if you’re still single, you’re obviously doing something wrong and it’s your fault.
Though the appeal of free sites is apparent, the paid sites are rising at a big rate yearly. The reason being apparent, they provide better providers and their members are higher quality. Many severe singles are blissful to pay a relationship website membership fee and never have to cope with time-wasters and pranksters normally found in free sites. There are tens of millions of us flying solo as either divorced or widowed as of late and dozens of relationship sites specifically designed for women and men 50 and over eagerly await our signing up with them.
Some are free for brief intervals. All you have to do to seek out them is Google “senior courting websites” or “boomer courting websites” and the like, and you will find loads to visit and select from. If one isn’t giving you enough hits, strive one other. Or two at a time. Our on-line world opens golden alternatives.
