Bex June 10, at 8: What would of been the harm in that? Several posters seem to have over-reacted to an excellent, thoughtful piece. And from the anecdotes she relates, it seems that was much appreciated. But if, as is inevitable, the little girl is wondering about her looks, how she is perceived, then of course a compliment is appropriate. Dodging the question will absolutely convey a negative result. For me this was just a little girl wanting to hear her mommy say she loved her and thought she was as pretty and the other little girls parents thought their daughter was Monica June 12, at
A woman who is guided by her heart and core values but never questions my habits or decisions — is that really too much to ask for? The woman for me has to be confident enough to be herself. To me, true love means loving someone for his or her faults, not despite them.
A report by BAE Systems and SWIFT shows that financial market areas such as equities trading, bonds, and derivatives face more threats than banking, forex, and trade finance.
Not only that, but men better have the best resume and professional references possible in order to even show up on her radar as a possible candidate. This, of course, is ignoring the fact that most women in churches now who act more like HR departments than sisters-in-Christ are totally unprepared and unqualified to be good wives and mothers.
In no way does it guarantee a loving, respectful, submissive, Christian wife who wants to please God by honoring me as her husband. Those are two totally different things. By your logic, God wants all people to be well fed, and so living in his will automatically means that we will never go hungry. How well is that logic working for some of the poorer Christians in poor parts of Africa or Afghanistan?
Or even poor parts of the US? This is the problem with Western Theology: But, God is not our candy dispenser. Obedience to God is just that — obedience. It is nothing else.

Tyler put a tour of Redhook on my calendar a couple weeks in advance. His grad program was going, and he said I should bum along. Skipping out of work early on a Friday to go drink beer was exactly my idea of a good time, so I agreed. That Friday I got home and everything seemed normal. We arrived at the sculpture garden and walked around for a bit. The weather was perfect: When we walked up to the top of the gardens, Tyler took my hands in his and said he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me.
We jumped in a cab and he took me over to Heartwood Provisions, and my parents greeted us with noisemakers when we walked through the door!
High maintenance women are like high maintenance sports cars. They’re lots of fun when you’re out on the town together, but for every hour of showing off, there are another 10 spent on upkeep and repair behind the scenes. After hours of polishing the headlights in your garage, you might ask yourself — is this really worth it, just for a couple of rides?

Share I had been single for a while, and I was sick and tired of it. Being 32 and single is no laughing matter; the traumatic experiences of watching your friends get married, have children, and attain the American dream are akin to the hopeless depression of the schizophrenic mental patient. I wanted a wife, I wanted kids, I wanted a steady job.
I was tired of working at Burger King and living alone in a studio apartment, and I was almost certain I memorized ninety percent of pornstars on the internet by name. Disgusted by the company of my left hand, I decided to go out to one of those speed dating events. I picked out my best garb and walked out the door. Keep in mind, I worked at Burger King, so the best clothes I could afford were some mediocre dress shirts and tattered khaki pants I bought at WalMart during a clearance event.
I walked into the event, trying to display the shred of confidence I had left. I was instantly discouraged when I saw all the other competing males and their Armani suits, high class whiskey in hand, and auras reeking of nothing but pure self esteem and conceit. The ladies there were dressed in fine dresses, some of them quite low cut, and smelled like a flower garden designed by Martha Stuart herself. There were some serious lookers in there, and I swear my pants shrunk a couple sizes at the sight of some of these dresses.
The speed dating started.
June 3rd, 10 min read Two years ago, I was really fed up with the dating scene in Thailand. I was so fed up that I was ready to leave; because I thought that there was no way that I would ever find a Thai girl worth dating. It seemed that Thai girls fell into two categories:
The Lost Child: Invisible and Unheard. Posted by Louise Behiel in adult children, Louise Behiel, recovery, self help | comments. The third of the four roles is the Lost Child. Remember, in a family with an emotionally absent parent, the other parent is focused on the ‘missing’ one.
She held a hand over her eyebrows, like a make-shift visor, blocking out the sun that was shining in her eyes. It was a gorgeous day, but I was sweating, and not because it was too hot. I was trying to explain to my good friend, why we should date. I stuttered and stammered, grasping for words, trying desperately to not sound like an idiot.
Rather than the cool, concise, articulate explanation I was planning on, what came out was a twenty minute long word-vomit of clutter and ramblings. I held my breath, almost wishing I could take it all back.
As though the right relationship is just going to fall from the sky. As though God is going to knock on the door one day, and all of a sudden there will be the one they are supposed to marry. And sadly, Christian culture perpetuates this lie. I had the opportunity to speak at two different Christian colleges at each end of the country in the past two weeks, and the students affirmed to me that this belief still runs rampant within the student body.

Does it seem like the puzzle pieces in your life are adding up this way? Marriage is a big step, but when you’ve found your soulmate, saying vows could be right around the corner. There is so much to be said about marriage. It is as old as humanity itself. We could look at trends from around the world where families married off their young, often with the women as property — thankfully, we don’t live in the past. It’s a more romantic place.
And divorce rates are falling. People are taking their time before getting married, and there are a lot of resources out there today that will make it easier than in your parents’ time. Back in the olden days: Parents often discussed with another family the prospect of marriage. A woman often didn’t have any say on the matter.
