Confessions of a 30(ish)-year-old virgin

If you’re like me and 30-plus years old, you may remember the 1999 Drew Barrymore movie “Never Been Kissed.” For those who have never seen it, here’s a synopsis. Josie Geller (Drew) aka “Josie Grossie” by her former high-school classmates, is a newspaper copyeditor who’s desperate to move up to reporter.


5 tips for maintaining long distance love

Online dating brings quite literally a world of opportunities, and that in turn raises the question: How wide should you make your search for love?

The answer of course will depend on your personal circumstances and preferences, but broadening the geographical options might just be a great way to enrich your experience and increase the chances of finding that special someone.


Sext education

‘I’d been chatting with someone online for a while, when suddenly his messages became very sexually explicit,’ said the email. ‘When I withdrew, he called me a coward. It was horrible to be insulted for not participating in inappropriate behaviour. To suddenly go from affectionate to sexually explicit is weird and creepy, and not what I expected on a Christian dating website.’


Greenbelt 2016

Christian Connection was back at the Greenbelt Festival at the end of August. Along with the usual social events and meetups, we arranged a special panel with the title “Has Online Dating changed everything?”


Have I missed out?

After a recent talk I did on dating, a woman in her mid 20s asked to speak with me. She explained that she had dated someone before for a long time and thought they would eventually get married. She then said:

‘He was great, but the enjoyment had been missing for a while, so we ended it. Have I lost ‘the One’?’


When God doesn’t meet your expectations

What happens when God doesn’t meet your relationship expectations?

If you’ve been single for any amount of time, then you’ve probably had to face this question before. When we were younger, many of us bought into the belief that God had a special person predestined for us, and we would inevitably meet them and fall in love by a certain age. But by now, many of us have come to realize that that’s not always how it happens.


How to fulfil your destiny

‘What do you do?’ doesn’t always fit well in Christian life. At any given time at least 47 per cent* of faithful souls will be – excuse me while I slip into basic Christianese – ‘in a season of transition’. We might be waiting on God / for breakthrough / tables while we wait for both God and breakthrough, and a simple answer can be elusive.
