  1. The Bible & Wifely Submission

    I'm late to this discussion but glad to have read such an interesting debate from both sides of the figurative and literal interpretation of the scripture from Ephesians, 2 Peter, Colossians Etc. As follower of Christ my position is of course unequivocally stated alongside the scriptures!
  2. A woman's voice

    To toss in this guy's opine on the matter,... I like a variety of voice tones and find the tone much more impresses me then than simply the pitch. That goes along with Skald said above, which by the way happy belated birthday. I also have a musical ear though and fine lots of objectivity in the "preferences" as it's more about the "total package" and "whole person" than any single attribute about a woman that I find preferable and attractive. Hope I've answered I've your question.
  3. Relational Comfort and Shaving Habits

    A thought from a guy here about the matter, ... Do you think possibly it's that she might be continuing to shave as per the usual times that she has been. Just that as relationships progress people typically begin spending more time together. Therefore is she expected to maintain "baby soft" legs and possibly other areas each time you two see one another? Or possibly as others have alluded to above has the relationship evolved now to the place whereby the two folks have much more in common than just checking to see if your partner's legs and possibly other areas are "up to stuff" 100% of the time. Now of course I agree with Emily and Invincible above that partners certainly when evolving to the point of marriage that each person "keeps themselves up". As well as continues to romance one another and remind them why they're building and doing life together. However I would think some day when/if marriage is in my future that when I'm hungry for some loving a little stubble wouldn't cause me to be less attracted to my wife. Just as I'd hope that because I've been consume lately with a project at work and haven't been quite so romantic that my wife wouldn't withhold her marital duties because of this. Finally made it to post number 400, woo hoo.
  4. Female Body Hair

    Another guy's opinion: There are certainly other things I find unattractive just from an aesthetic viewpoint like way excessive makeup and unnatural hair colors. But body hair, yes I think it's more "feminine" to reduce body hair as I'm an American male therefore I'm slightly engineered to think this way. Now that being said God did create women with body hair but he also gave both genders the choice to remove it. Therefore the final conclusion is as long as she's not hairy than I am I wouldn't find some body hair to be unattractive.
  5. Tattoos

    I'm not totally against tattoos, but as agreed upon above ones that are on the face (definitely) hand and neck are dealbreakers. Simple ones of family members and events past, symbols of faith and scriptural references are okay. Though as the saying goes "less is more".
  6. Preparing for better and against worse in marriage

    What about you? What do you think about this ? Thanks for reply and opinion I agree as Christians it should be our first and foremost goal to please, honor, one and love God first certainly even in marriage as in a way aren't we "married" to Christ as the church is the bride. Yes that's correct we definitely fall short as Paul lamented there in Roman's 7 before he dives into the "grace chapter" in chapter 8. That's also a very good verse, example there in 1 John chapter 2 thanks for highlighting that. Oh yeah that's the Advocate we enjoy and have living inside of us that allows us to fellowship with God. That's why when sometimes my buddies say things like wishing they lived during the scriptual period, yet we enjoy the fellowship of God's Holy Spirit living inside of us. How can another time be better, greater than this? That is correct, Christ is not wish fulfiller, but rather our savior, Lord and even as Peter described in the opening words of his second letter to the Apostles or what we refer to as 2nd Peter he says we are yet bondservants or slaves in another translation. You pose a really, really good statement there the word idolatry. How many folks idolize and hold up upon a pedestal their spouse. As though every need, want and desire should and could be fulfilled by that person? I think about in my own life and this is within a small Bible study group I'm using for reference. Maybe you can relate feel free to PM me if you'd rather. When dating, how many people fall away from their growth and began waning in fellowship during the course of the relationship? That's certainly a very matured faith speaking there, wow. Kudos and Amen Yes when each party enters into a marriage thinking not of bring served but of serving one another then certainly good things grow from there. You did certainly answer my question and I'll comment upon the video momentarily. So far it's been pretty good though I like a lot of the material Francis Chan and his wife Lisa produce they collectively have such a giving heart and spirit for ministry. God is doing great things through them.
  7. Let Him Pursue You! Attracting a Godly Guy…

    That was also also a good read And it's certainly true if a guy desires a woman, even the most passive guy will pursue her. She can assist as the writer above mentioned about "flirting" showing interest and responding to his interest. Good stuff
  8. Preparing for better and against worse in marriage

    That's a really good article and post there Geraldine thanks for sharing. I just wonder if at times are we as Christians looking to find mates/partners who are being perfected into Christ image as the term "Christian" implies. Or are we looking to find "perfect" mates/partners who live entirely up to our expectations and fulfill all of our needs, desires, wants. That serve us rather than the purpose of marriage to serve one another. What do you think?
  9. I don't know all the details here nor do I know your specific church. However I have been in the "church" most all my life and I have seen instances like the one you've described DHZ. Have you tried as has been suggested befriending some of the young ladies "bridging the gap" between the genders. Maybe setup and organize a hangout with a group. It seems like this is an ingrained issue or even a safety measure within this specific community. However hanging out as a group will have many positives, first it'll allow each of you to get to know each other in a comfortable pressure free environment. Secondly you'll get to know some of the young ladies individually in a way that you cannot at this point from a distance. Where you might find the girl you like from a distance who seems pretty and wonderful is simply not your type once you've gotten to know her and vice versa of course. To add have you prayed about this issue, take it to God and I believe he'll answer according to his will.
  10. The Power of a Kiss Saved

    That was a good read I certainly liked the fact that they were striving to honor God.
  11. Romantic song :)

    I just cannot choose "A" song Sunshine by the O'Jays Love Song for a Savior, Jars of Clay You and Promise, Howie Day City of Black and White, Matt Kearney Cry to together, the O'Jays Porcelain Heart, Barlow Girl She loves me back, Luther Van Dross Worth the Wait, Philmore I was made to love her, Boys 2 Men Annie, SafetySuit Hello, Lionel Richie I dreamed of it a lifetime, Philmore (again) I don't regret, Barlow Girl In no particular order, I could keep at it drawing songs from my personal collection, but I digress.
  12. Cohabitation

    Thinking objectively I could see the economic benefit however I believe it is outweighed by the drawbacks of temptation, the views of the community though we say that we don't really care what others think about us. To add: The idea of a partner having cohabitated in the past, well I'd say it's a dealbreaker for me, as I'd assume strongly that not only was she against waiting but had gone entirely against the moral fabric of the principle of waiting by "playing" married with a former partner.
  13. The sin is sin argument

    Great point above from GP On one level, all sins are equal in that no matter how trivial they seem, they all deserve God's "wrath and curse, both in this life, and that which is to come, and cannot be expiated but by the blood of Christ." No sins are small when committed against a great and generous God. Beyond this, however, the gravity of each transgression depends on varying factors. In the Lord's prayer, we ask for forgiveness for our transgressions, not our sins, as Christ paid for these at the cross. To add to this point, there's 1 Corinthians 6, where Paul laments that "Every other sin is outside the body, ..." And continues in verse 19 by stating that our bodies are "temples of the holy spirit as a reason why we should honor God with our bodies. Aren't there Sins, Transgressions, and Inequities?
  14. Great read Geraldine, thank you for sharing!
  15. Are STDs a deal breaker?

    Wow, great topic actually and something I've never really put too much thought into for a couple specific reasons. One of which is that I have always figured the probability of me marrying a 'Non-Waiter' is likely very low. So that sort of answers that question right there in a nutshell. But I think it's more important even than that, and maybe I'm thinking too far into this this topic but the "reason" for marriage is what, sex. And the "reason" for sex is of course bonding between married folks, but certainly not to be superseded by the need to reproduce. Therefore, reproducing with someone who has an STI/STD, the chances of them passing along that disease to the child during birth, I speaking as a man here. But her passing along that disease to our child and it affecting our child's health, well that's very concerning to me. I'm thinking of the choice I have to marry and have children with this person, however our children don't have that ability to make that choice? It's like the person, whom i'd definitely love and be with till death do us part, however that is still quite an overwhelming thought isn't it? The past isn't always just a person's past, but the ramifications of those choices, we have to live with as well, those whom we've yet to think of.
