I doubt I’ll surprise anyone by saying that Christians are bad at dating. We all feel it in our bones and see it at every church function. Christians tend to be awkward when interacting with members of the opposite sex. Much of this is simply a human problem and...
If you’ve never heard of Arrested Development, that’s probably because the show was cancelled almost seven years ago. But that doesn’t mean the show was a failure, or that people have stopped watching it. The show has developed a cult following, and it now seems to be getting more...
This seems to be the conventional wisdom on the subject: men and women cannot be friends. Things will always turn romantic for one or the other. They will try to manipulate one another and one or both will always be hurt. I understand where this line of thinking comes from....
Happy Valentines Day! When it comes to dating, Christians are often awkward. Sometimes as awkward as their non-Christian neighbors, sometimes more awkward.

Today we come to one of most potentially destructive Christian myths about dating: “Dating is a test drive for marriage.” Maybe you would never say it like that, but I think that this is where a huge chunk of Christian dating relationships live. If you’re dating, you’re most likely looking...
The church can get pretty weird about dating. Last Spring I did a series of blogs on “Why Christians Are Bad at Dating.” The popularity of this series doesn’t prove that I had a solution for making dating in Christian circles less awkward, but it does show that this...
Yesterday I argued that God’s kind of love begins in the affections and shows itself outwardly in action. But that kind of love is difficult, so we come up with poor alternatives. In this post, I’m going to explore some of those alternatives. One such alternative that I hear people...
