  1. How i it usually when you date another person who's waiting until marriage? I recently started dating this guy from online who's also waiting until marriage. This is my first time dating a guy who's waiting until marriage too. He's also a virgin and we never talked about past relationships, so I'm not even sure if he had his first kiss.I'm a virgin waiter too, but I dated a lot of guys before. I'm not sure if he's just different or if he's not interested. We went on three dates so far. He smiles at me a lot, always pays, and is extra nice. However, he never compliments, flirts, or touches me.He accidentally touched my hand when we were walking, but that was it. I don't understand why he wouldn't even show that he's interested when we're together, but continues to ask me on dates. It's so confusing. Is the experience usually different when two waiters date?
  2. I'm wondering what kind of things you ladies wear on dates. It can be any kind of date, I just want answers. Even though I've never actually been on a date of any kind, as of this year I have been planning out what I would wear, and building a small wardrobe of date-worthy pieces (because I don't have many). I have a couple of skirts that are like this: Yes they are that short on me but I would be wearing shorts under there ( I would not wear a skirt of any length without safety shorts), but do you still think that would be inappropriate and send the wrong kind of message? I want to look cuter and different than I do on a regular basis (what can I say? I dress for comfort 99% of the time). If it were a date to someplace like the movies would you even wear a skirt/dress and heels? Would that look like trying to hard?
  3. Online Dating

    Feel free to skip to the end, where the lovely BOLD questions live. Okay, so I was one of those people who was absolutely, positively sure that online dating was not for me. I’m a hopeless romantic, so I love imagining dozens of cute “how we met†stories, and picking each other out of a list of options on the computer screen never really seemed like an ideal way to begin a relationship. In my line of work, teaching, I really do not meet a lot of guys; my contact with the male species at work is either students or their parents, neither of which is a potential dating pool! By a cruel twist of fate, we do not even have any male teachers at my school, and I spend most of my time at work or asleep. The guys at my church are all a lot younger or married, and where I volunteer, the guys are taken or else completely wrong for me. So, unless I have a chance encounter with my soulmate at the grocery store, and we both realize it, and he asks for my number, and I get over my fear of giving it to a complete stranger, etc., my odds aren’t looking so good at the moment. I believe that God will bring me and my future husband together when the time is right, but I’m not sure how active of a role I need to be playing in the operation. To that end, when bored and curious late one night, I found myself signing up on a free dating site. Not with the intention of actually talking to anyone, but more to see who was out there. I didn’t post a picture, or really give much information; if anything, I tried to make it clear that I was not there to find a relationship. I found the online dating site both overwhelming and intriguing. It overwhelmed me in that, even without posting a picture, I began receiving, “Hi, how are you?†comments almost immediately, and even a thoughtful message from a guy who had actually read my profile and had creative responses to the things I had said. Suddenly, I had gone from a world of no available guys to a world where many people were approaching me, albeit very impersonally. I ignored their messages, as I had warned I would, and began the intriguing process known as “advanced search.†With an ease impossible if I had met these men in person, I was able to plug in several of my deal-breakers as filters, and I found myself presented with several guys who were Christian, non-smokers, and non-drinkers, who all lived within 25 miles of me. Reading through their profiles, some I could easily eliminate, while others sounded very appealing. At this point, I became confronted with very mixed feelings and have since been trapped in analysis-paralysis. I’ve always thought of online dating as less romantic, and I’ve been told before that it makes a person seem “desperate†and “pathetic.†Plus, there are always the stories of stalkers, serial killers, and at the very least, people who don’t look like their profile pictures. But on the other hand, those stalkers and serial killers exist in the real world too, and you can meet them offline as easily as you can online. Plus, it seems like it would be nice to be able to start dating someone who you already know shares common values with you; there would be less concern of starting to get attached, and then finding out too late that there was a major deal-breaker that must end things. The risk wouldn’t be gone, but you’d have better odds. At the moment, I don’t think I’ll be contacting anyone from the dating website. But I will say, it was nice to know that there were still single guys who had common values with me out there, nearby. They exist! So, if for no other reason than to give my hope a boost, it was good to visit the website. So, to the point of this long ramble: What are your thoughts regarding online dating? Do you know anyone who has had success? Have you had any experience online dating? If so, what was it like? If not, would you ever consider trying it?
