As people transition into the new year, and attempt to make good on their new year’s resolutions, they flock to online dating sites with hope and excitement about the possibility of a new relationship – of finding that “right” person and that lasting relationship.
as one year mark getting close, i poped this question with my bf-" do you think we are right for each other? am i being pushy to ask something like that being together 1 year?
My boyfriend, Jeremiah, and I celebrated our one year (dating) anniversary on November 10th. Different schedules, and long spans of time apart due to travel, and different ideas about the best way to spend time together can be deal-breakers. Go as long as you can without breaking the barrier. If she says it’s fine, because she’s not one of those “high-maintenance girls”, but you can see her eye twitching as she talks, don’t take the bait. Even if she takes it a step further and farts in front of you, it’s a trap. Like you find them valuable enough to go out of your way for them. When you can freely lift your hands and sing loudly and praise God side-by-side with your partner, you can take on the world together.
We personally know numerous people who met their long-terms partners on online dating sites.
We also know many people who’ve struggled with dark side of online dating – the uncertainties, the dashed hopes, the shattered expectations, the repeated disappointments.
Nine months was my limit; nine months of dating and then a guy gave me my walking papers.
But tomorrow will be one year since my boyfriend and I met each other at a birthday party and sometime in the next couple of weeks, we will have been dating for one year.
To my friends and family who know my dating history, it was a miraculous occasion. You’ll think you guys are comfortable enough with each other and your relationship is “there”, but it’s not. It doesn’t matter if you have dated 1 month or 1 year or have been married 50 years. Worshipping brings you closer, it empowers you as a couple, it creates a heart-environment for you to work through your issues.
I, myself, still have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I’ve actually been in a relationship for over a year. And it doesn’t mean you have to smother them in expensive gifts or elaborate dates. Women just want to feel like they still make you nervous and that you are thinking about them in unique ways and wanting to make a good impression on them. It levels the playing field and brings you both back to neutral.
It is with these experiences in mind that we offer guidance – guidance to help you know what you’re looking for, make good decisions, and keep things in perspective as you navigate the often difficult world of online dating.
