Dating: who?
#49
Wow. I really didn't expect this much feedback.

Quote:Hang in there and dont listen to those who say "dont go looking" bull,,, don't beat yourself up too much when you fall of the chastity wagon, because its going to happen.
That's another thing. On one hand, I don't think it's necessarily wise to limit my options at this point, but no one is willing to "wait" short of devout Christians of one stripe or another, and even then, it's questionable... it's a catch 22; religion says you have to get married to put out; culture says you have to put out to get married.

Quote:That said, it's better to marry a Catholic than constantly fear for your wife's damnation (of course, being Catholic doesn't mean you're automatically heaven bound, but some rows are easier to hoe than others).
Right. Catholic girls get automatic bonus points in my book, but at this point I'm more concerned with my own salvation... the aforementioned habitual sins aside, the thought of not finding someone does not bode well for my faith in the long run.
Quote:Where you be, homey?
From what I've gleaned from your posts...about fifty minutes north of you. As for the picture, I'd say 50% or less of that pair is interested in men.
Quote:it certainly is traditional advice. not every one is called to marriege. many get sucked into it not called to it.
my advice is to stay single others will say get married both are valid and traditional advice.
marriege is a vocation
not everyone is called to it.
I feel no calling to religious life, I'm unhappy being single, and I was checking out the girls in my class the first day of kindergarten. Permanent celibacy is not an option.
Quote:Actually, I don't think he said the Catholic was lazy or even that the Protestant was devout, just that the Catholic was a liberal and the Protestant was conservative, so the question is what kind of heretic is it more acceptable to date.
Essentially. Regardless, the Protestant girl in question is of the nondenominational variety and doesn't have that much exposure to Catholicism anyway, I don't think. She's open to it and seems to be more the nondenominational, Protestant in the sense that she's Christian and not particular about others' expression of it than the Northern Ireland, consciously and actively anti-Catholic variety.
Quote:To the OP... I'm still wondering what "to date" means. It seems to be different things to different people.
A committed, monogamous romantic relationship for the purpose of getting to determine the other's suitability for marriage.
