Ladies, Asking A Question Is Not Leading

I feel for you ladies. I really do. Dating is particularly a little harder for you. For me, dating is relatively easy. I just have to pick a woman. Granted, I might be rejected when I ask someone out, but for the most part, I have control in choosing who I ask. You don’t. You kind of just have to wait …

The Difference Between Stolen And Influenced Hearts

Which would you rather have — someone who stole your heart or someone who won your heart?

“He’s cute,” I thought to myself. “I wonder why he’s still single?” After a few minutes of pondering, I decided to do something completely out of my shy character. I asked, “So, why is a handsome man like you still single (*wink wink*)?” I was expecting him to reply, “Oh, I just haven’t met the right woman yet; I’m still …

Purity Is Greater Than Virginity

Virginity doesn’t mean what it used to mean. Before the easy access of pornography, virginity often meant that someone was pure in their life. Not so much now. Pornography has so oversexualized our culture that you don’t even have to watch it to know what it looks like.
