    What is your dating advice?

    I have much to say and no time to say it, but I appreciate your level of mindfulness on this topic. Younger women would do well to listen to somebody of temperance like yourself.

    What is your dating advice?

    I'll have to part ways here. I'm at my most healthy when I'm in a committed relationship. That isn't to say I won't struggle with sexual sin when I have a wife, but I do think marriage is a viable way to put a perfectly legal lid on it if it hasn't risen to the level of addiction. As Paul...

    What is your dating advice?

    This is especially true of the middle-aged to old-ish married women who fancy themselves spiritual gurus. They'll assume the single (often younger) woman as a sort of spiritual charge and dish out advice and direction that makes my Dr. Des anecdotes look like wise counsel. It often turns into...

    What is your dating advice?

    Really, the equivalent would be you assuming married people cheat when they get bored. There is a good and often unobserved biblical mean between being atomized and being a busybody. Regrettably, our culture of late has not habituated us toward that mean.

    What is your dating advice?

    That is funny. I think I have more frustration with the singles who expect special signs, total comfort, etc. Edmund Burke liked to say the great things are rarely exact (or something like that). I'm inclined to agree. Married Karens are married Karens. If they think me a helion, that's...

    What is your dating advice?

    Exactly. It seems we're speaking two different languages here. Taking a girl out for a beer and a taco does not a relationship make.

    What is your dating advice?

    Dating, yes. Being in more than one relationship at once? No. That's out of the question.

    What is your dating advice?

    The more people you date, the more likely you are to find someone fit for marrying.

    "Women Only Want Money"; "Men Only Want Sex." How Do You Cope With These Assumptions?

    Like every other great assumption, you're better off thinking of ways to tastefully leverage it rather than mope about the fact it exists in the first place.

    Putting the Christian in Christian Dating

    Well in Biblical times people got married quick and young. We've turned this into a Gordian Knot of sorts by raising the threshold for maturity so-to-speak. Christians have to be counter-cultural in expecting people to mature faster so they can, in turn, marry faster. As for older Christians...

    I'm one for two. It wasn't a good date though. She likes Sylvia Plath. I like John Milton.

    I asked out two baristas as they handed me my latte. I'm the scourge of the South's coffee-preparing community.
