    I understand that, I'm trying to use this situation to help you see places where you can break some of these patterns. Whether you go for him or not is your choice, but at least come away with the situation having learned some things. OK, that's another correlation to your pattern. Not that all...

    Future Relationships: Advice/Opinions Requested

    Quick question, how many of those men were his age? With wisdom and cynicism comes less of a willingness to do that. I don't know if you are intimidating, but if you come off as outgoing and/or not interested in conversing with him, he might not think the effort of asking out someone he has to...

    Lack of Confidence, Women, and Looks (Advice Please)

    The men who do are desperate for help and follow people who sound like they know what they're talking about. Unfortunately, these people are often full of advice that is not suited to them or their relationship goals. I really wish the church was better at helping these men. Within the church...

    Bishop Shelby Spong and evidence for resurrection, etc

    That doesn't reflect well upon such clergymen. The easy answer is that Jesus was bodily risen from the grave on the third day by God's power.

    Would you pursue and marry someone with chronic illness?

    Consider how she is on a bad day. Now imagine that is going to be most days for the rest of her life. Do you want to put up with that? Do you want to put in 8+ hours of work, plus however many hours of driving your daily commute, to come home to a filthy house, no chores have been done, and you...

    Can Christians drink whisky?

    In moderation, it's fine. IDK if 500 ml/week is moderation, when I drink whisky it is much less than that.

    Why do God put desire to get married in people who cant get married?

    We're talking about different things here. Yes, it gets a lot worse as a guy gets into his 30's and 40's if he lives at home (and for the record I am not living with my parents). But those guys in their 20's who live at home and are saving up are not considered winners by most of society - it...

    I turn 21 today and I’m very very scared about alcohol.

    Why do God put desire to get married in people who cant get married?

    I don't disagree with the filtering aspect of it, and the upside of dodging the bullets. Unfortunately, there are so many bullets out there, can the machine guns please stop firing. FWIW, my financial expectations of a young woman starting out are to work off her debt and save, primarily. Once...

    Why do God put desire to get married in people who cant get married?

    There's a social price to pay for wise financial decisions, actually. Living with your parents until you can afford a down payment? Most people will think you're a manchild, and it's going to take several years to build up your savings and your credit. While you're doing that, you know what...

    Marriage - it may not be worth it anymore (for men)

    That's where a lot of liberal values are encountered for the first time, including liberal sexual values, and the incoming freshmen feel pressured to embrace it. While that part is true, it's not exclusive to colleges. It definitely spreads to people that haven't gone these days.
