Love & Geography

Many singles gripe that the reason they are unattached is due to their current location.  The Urbanites feel there are so many people around them but ultimately it’s hard to meet someone relationship worthy.  And careers tend to trump love.  Suburbanites express there is a lack of opportunity to meet new people in a place where most married people with kids live.

Age Is Nothing But a Number, Right?!

Last night I went to dinner with a friend.  We had a very talkative twenty-four year old bartender named Donnie. He expressed that he has no age preference when it comes to dating women.  His preferable dating age range is a 20 to 40 year old woman.  My friend and I were surprised that a man of his age would entertain dating a much older woman, especially in our society were youth is coveted.  Our bartender’s comments opened up a very interesting conversation about ageism and dating.

Fighting Temptation

Hi Diana,

I’m a 25-year-old Christian man who practices abstinence.  I face temptation all of the time, but I’ve been able to overcome it so far.  I am not a virgin, so I know what sex is all about… which is half the problem.

I have been having a hard time getting involved with women, because many women are pushing to have sex.  What do you think I should do about this??
