Hey Boundless - stop defrauding us about dating

You knew it had to happen occasionally.  Boundless is so busy pushing their idea of "Biblical Dating" that they have taken a scripture out of context, changed its meaning, and used it to support their ideals whether it actually fits or not.

Marriage is not a group activity, why spending time alone is wise before you tie the knot

So-called "Biblical Dating" or "Courtship" models of premarital relationships are intended to maintain the sexual purity of a couple. If you aren't familiar with it, the general idea is:

The Art of Obvious Advertising

Since Americans seems obsessed with reality shows, the answer has become what else but MORE REALITY SHOWS!

Some of the more annoying entries for me have been "The Revolution" and Live Big with Allie Vincent.

Boundless - Take responsibilty for your dating life, the third option

As a thinking urbanite, I find quite a bit of Boundless's articles to be frustrating. And so it goes for Biblical Dating: An Introduction by Scott Croft.

The way the article is written makes it seem that there is nothing in between so-called "Biblical Dating" and "Modern Dating." Boundless tries to make it seem that focusing on courtship under the careful supervision of Mom, Dad, and pastoral staff is the only way to fly. There is alot of ground in between the two.

Bachelorette Shawntel Newton discusses faith, dating, and why grief is good

Shawntel Newton became my favorite bachelorette immediately. Her quirky career choice of being a funeral director and mortician meant that finding love with bachelor Brad might be a challenge. Lying on an enbalming table proved to be too much for Brad and Shawntel was eliminated at the rose ceremony. I suspected that they kept her around purely for casting reasons. That still has to be the most memorable hometown date ever seen on ABC's The Bachelor.

It was a delight to see her again making a bid to steal the heart of Bachelor Ben on Monday evening's The Bachelor. I certainly hope that Ben will be able to see how catty all of these women are and not pick any of them. They were horribly mean to Shawntel. If I had been on that show, I certainly would have welcomed her. I would have wanted to have her in the house with me to hang out with. The likelihood of people actually finding real, lasting love is very low anyway, why not share???

In this article on www.TheOliveTee.com, Shawntel dishes about her deep faith in Christ. I love hearing about how she feels that being a funeral director in the family business is a ministry. I'm certain you will agree that she is a beauty both inside and out.

I'm going to give you a very special spoiler. Shawntel moved on very well from Ben's rejection. She finished a book and found love! Plus, she is also the model for the Olivetee T-shirt line. Please have a read about this very special woman of God

A boyfriend or girlfriend for the holidays

Some of you are, no doubt, still recovering from the holiday stress. Certainly more than a few of you found yourselves at the dinner table thinking, "Where is my significant other? When will I meet this person? When will those annoying questions stop????" You have been asking yourself these same questions, but when mom, grandma, uncles, aunts, and various other family members ask, "How about YOU??? Are you dating anyone yet?" *SHUDDER*

Well, I don't mean to stress you out any more than you already have been, but when you have been single for a significant period of time and you join your life with another person who has been single a significant period of time, it may not be as smooth as you think...

Relevant "You Never Marry the Right Person" by Timothy Keller

Finally, an article in Relevant that makes sense. Pastor Timothy Keller heads up a very large congregation of mostly single people in New York. Apparently, New Yorkers are the pickiest people in the world when it comes to dating. I was there for 2 years and had a succession of dates with some very picky people. But, in truth, there are picky people everywhere.
