Interestingly, we were just interviewing Kelly Kapic from Covenant College, and he mentioned that it would be good for church families to take in the college students and singles as a sort of adopted family member, being that they are away from their biological families.Kelly didn’t know that is exactly what the Truemans have done.But, as you can see, she seems to be pretty comfortable with the dating guidelines. Or maybe MAD doesn't mean what you think it does...I suggested that we women not be afraid to be blunt and to ask the people we are attracted to out on a date, to follow our gut and not be afraid to take charge.Date One agreed and suggested we go to the aquarium after I suggested coffee; however, he called me “babe” throughout the whole date and I barely know this guy I had only talked to him twice throughout the whole semester and had seen him like maybe four times.Date Two was charming but he was also very cocky, I had a hard time finding common ground, he boasted about his car and apartment and kind of was degrading me for my old Subaru and the fact that I live at home with my parents, I’m sorry since when is free food, paid bills, free washer and dryer and extra cash in your wallet a bad thing, according to Date Two, all of the above was bad status quo.Yet if I step back and analyze myself I realized that I like the idea of Date Three but not Date Three, I just wasn’t that into him sometimes you just have to follow your gut so maybe I did not get a second date with Date Three but I got a friendship and that seems pretty good to me.
I usually do not find it hard to strike up a conversation with someone but I could not get much out of this guy, I felt as if he did not want to be there with me and regretted agreeing to the date.
I realized that I should not be afraid of being a confident woman and not be afraid to take charge I need someone that can respect and treat me as an equal and give me my space.
As women we are constantly told through all sorts of media of how we should appear physically of how we should act, but reality is that you should not be trying to impress someone else but yourself, the person who is going to matter at the end of the day is yourself, so be you in all your glory.
Lastly, you just have to remember that you are human mistakes, miscommunication and misunderstanding will happen but that’s life and life is complicated you will not be able to control every situation that pops up.
You just have to be you, and go through the ups and downs that is dating but never change who you are, do not be afraid to be yourself because when the right person comes along they’re not going to want to change a single thing about you because you are amazing just the way you are.
