Dating advice 4 men
The recent post, "Catholic Men Should Be the Best Daters", refreshingly did not attempt to psychoanalyze our stilted romantic lives, but presented a simple and practical message: guys, just ask girls out.
The post apparently hit a nerve, with many men and women sharing it through social media.
(2) The Problem: Dating for dating's sake Yes, it can be casual in the sense that you're getting to know someone, not marrying them on the spot.
But if you treat dating like a game, then we can't trust you with our time, let alone our hearts.
Whether you’re going out for dinner or planning a day out, have a couple of options in mind so you can make a suggestion.
If you have to make a final decision then be direct and show you’re willing to take the lead.
In my circles, the topic of Catholic dating comes up regularly or, more specifically, the topic of why there is often a lack of dating among young Catholics.
Everyone's an expert on where the blame should be placed: the hook-up culture, the hang-out culture, the so-called 'friend-zone', feminism, men being wimps, women taking the initiative instead, discernment dragging on, and the list continues.
Be sensitive to the fact that close circles can result in high drama when eligible young men are concerned, so you might need to do pre-emptive damage control if things don't work out with one roommate and you decide to date the second.
The most important thing is you’re making time to see each other and even if you make a bad choice, bad restaurants make for good dating stories.
Telling someone how you feel about them is never easy, so even though this is vague, you get props for trying.
Recently an article I posted about Catholic men and dating went a little viral.
