Have you avoided men with online profiles touting their “love of the Lord”? I’m convinced that both men and women tend to approach relationships with a set of assumptions about potential partners, and I think religion is one trait that is too often judged based upon fiction rather than fact. Christianity is the largest religion in the world, claiming 2.2 billion of the world’s 6.9 billion people, as of last year. If it sounds like I have it out for Christian dudes, well, I should tell you—I am one.It stretches to include grandparents, aunts and uncles, brothers, sisters, nephews and nieces.The members of the Russian family closely communicate with each other and frequently get together, especially on such family occasions as birthdays and anniversaries.In turn, I’ll say to them, “So if Tim Tebow or Russell Wilson walked up to you right now and asked you out on a date, you would reject them flat-out because of their Christian faith?” The answer is always, "Of course not."In other words, if he were a millionaire, magazine-cover-worthy, pro football player, then, yeah, she would totally date him, and the Christian thing wouldn’t really be that big of a deal.
Another woman complained that her ex wouldn’t consider any other opinions as being valid, including hers.
It seems to me that women who write off Christian guys as squares are making an illogical jump from “I’ve never met a Christian I’d want to date” to “I’d never date a Christian man.” Could you say the same about all Italian men if you dated a few Italian guys who bored you?
All they really seem to mean is, “I’d never date any of the Christian men I’ve already met.” Which, of course, should have little to no bearing on future guys they meet.
She wasn’t pleased to the point that she considered dumping him. She was struck by the fact that her man didn’t put his own sexual gratification above all else, like other guys did.
He valued other things more, namely his girlfriend and his faith, and that impressed her.
Meanwhile her fiance is learning Russian with a view of retiring in Ukraine one day.
