Because what I have tragically found is that Christian singles hit an area of desperation, particularly young women, and they will go: “Yeah, he is a Christian, he comes to church.” And really what they’re saying is this guy comes to church a couple of times a month, but outside of attending a service, he doesn’t have a real seriousness about growing in his understanding of the Lord, growing in his understanding of the Bible, being a prayerful person, no vivication or mortification that can be spotted, and no one who really knows them enough to speak to the growth in their character.
I think what you are looking for is seriousness about growth in the person’s faith.
First dates are not the time to be thinking about the genetic advantages our future children might enjoy, but – let’s be honest – our minds can easily drift that direction.
We put pressure on ourselves and on our dates to have a vision for our future together as soon as possible.
First dates can be a big frustration for a lot of people.
Personally, I’ve never really liked first dates, especially if it was a blind date.
