Tips on Dating a Christian

If you frequent the dating scene in your locale, it’s not uncommon to meet and eventually go on a date with a Christian.
Assuming you are not one yourself, this may pose some difficulties for you. After all, the common idea is that Christians are more reserved and act conservatively. While this may be true, it should not hinder you from going out with the woman you fancy. Here are a few ideas that might help you on your date with a Christian:

1. Take her where you usually go on dates. Devout Christians don’t smoke or drink. However, this doesn’t mean that they aren’t allowed to go to pubs or nightspots. You are in your best element if you are in your territory. Besides, she would want to meet the real you, not the one you think she will like. Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Dating a Christian will not be fun if you have to change who you are.

2. Be aware of her beliefs and show that you respect them. While you are not expected to agree with her beliefs, you would not want to accidentally step on them when out on a date. You don’t even have to talk about religion. Just make sure that the date runs smoothly by not offending the person you’re dating.

3. Find out about the activities she enjoys and do them with her. Christians do more than just pray and stay at home. They also love to have good, clean fun. Doing the things she enjoys when dating not only shows that you care, but also shows that you want to get to know her world; something that will definitely impress her.

Come to think of it, dating a Christian isn’t so much different from dating other types of people. She may be from a different race, country, and yes, religion, but the tips mentioned above will work for any kind of person. If you take into account the suggested ideas, then it won’t matter what kind of person you’re dating because you are sure to impress her.

More importantly, if you think about it, Christians aren’t so much different from non-Christians. The woman you are dating maybe a Christian, but first and foremost she is a human being. Treat her with respect, show your true self, and eventually you’ll get the girl. Happy dating

Rekindling Your Romance This Valentine’s Day

Rekindling Your Romance
Valentine’s Day is the ideal opportunity to remind your partner how much they mean to you
If you’ve been in a relationship for a while, you’ll have noticed how easily you slip from passion and romance into settled everyday life. A celebration like Valentine’s Day is a great time to remind yourselves why you got together in the first place. Valentine’s treats are becoming expensive, but you don’t need to spend a fortune to show how you feel – a little thoughtfulness and creativity can go a long way. Try some of these in the run-up to February 14th:

Spontaneity

Come home with a treat for you both – a good movie, a box of chocolates or a trip out to the nearest pizza restaurant. Unexpected gestures are good for everyone and give you a chance to tell your partner why they’re important to you.

Love Notes

It might sound corny, but leaving a note under a coffee cup or stuck to the bathroom mirror to say how much you love someone takes no time at all and always brings a smile to their face. If they travel a lot, put a note or a card in their suitcase, so it’s the first thing they see when they unpack. If they leave for work before you in the morning, put a note in their car the night before. It doesn’t have to be often, but it’s one of those things that’s as good to give as it is to receive.

Hugs

In our opinion, hugs are severely under-rated. It’s amazing how little we hug and kiss once we’re in an established relationship. Make the time to show each other and those around you how great you feel when you’re together.

Talk

Couples often say that when they’ve been together for a while, they can tell what the other person’s thinking and they don’t need to talk. In fact, the longer you’re together, the more important it is that you find time to talk. Busy lives mean that you can’t spend hours discussing deep thoughts, but you can take the time to ask how your partner is feeling and what their opinions are on various topics – things that affect your relationship as well as general topics of conversation. Make time to talk.

Valentine’s Day may be just around the corner, but you can make your partner feel special on any day of the year.
