• Welcome to Christian Forums
  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

Not sure where to go from here, LD guy friend of 3 years and serious feelings for him.

    When I’m meeting someone for the first time I use a tracking app. My best friend is on the other end and she can see my movements. We do it as a safety precaution.

    I haven’t had any bad experiences. But I only meet in public places. I’ve had friends at my home. I was younger and the Internet was too and they were women.

    I’d give thought to your familiarity. How well do you know him and his circumstances? I have pictures of my companion, his family, and resume. I know where we works and the places he visits. If he takes a trip I have pictures. If he’s traveling on business I know the event, where he’s staying, and when it ends. He isn’t secretive.

    My best friend was the same way. She’s transparent and invited me into her world. Oftentimes they’re the most sincere and you won’t have a whopper to confront later on. They aren’t hiding.

    If a man has no dating experience by 23 I’d want to know why. Unless he was raised in a community that abstains or believed he was called to singleness that isn’t the norm.

    I don't visit Reddit because it's a very inappropriate place. Because of its inappropriateness, I would not try to meet with anyone from Reddit.

    OK. Time for some tough love (via a stern response). If you want to meet this guy, get off your butt and make it happen; you will get your questions answered. Three years is way too long for you be in a never-met-in-person "relationship," and frankly, it's sort of pathetic. Take a week off of work, and go meet him. Drive if you have to. The virus is just your latest excuse for not meeting, and I do mean EXCUSE. You appear to be purposely avoiding meeting the guy (or he avoiding you, or mutual avoidence), while still wanting the attention you get via long distance, and a new excuse will come up after this virus is no longer a major issue.
