What is The Fuss about Having a Blind Date?

Image
Last Friday we had an event that was focusing on #DatingandTechnology. To kick start the conversation, there was a brief debate on "whether one would go for a blind date or not". 
This conversation was mind blowing and I got to learn so much which will be shared in this post. The general feeling is most people do not mind going for a blind date. However, the conditions to the nature of the date.
Some of the issues that came up include: The need to know the face of the person they are meetingThe need to meet in a secure placeThe need to have a wing man/woman in case things go south Also check out: The ‘Presidential Wait’ in Relationships
Going for a blind date is exciting and a daring adventure. You could be meeting up with someone you either know nothing about or just the basics. But what would motivate anyone to do that?  Blind date begins by a point of interest that pushes you to want to know the other personThere is very low expectations. It could either go well or bad s…

7 Great Tips On How To Enjoy First Date

Dating and Courtship is one of the biggest privileges us people of this century have. During our parents days marriage was planned and getting to 'know each other' was  experienced inside the marriage. Nevertheless this planned marriages lasted until death did them part.

5 Statements That Scare Men Coming from a Woman

Image
Men and women are created differently and their way of communication is also very different. There are statements that women might say casually, it could be with a hidden intention or not, but men will take them seriously or get confused.

In my opinion, most of these statements are used to gauge a man both emotionally and psychologically. 
The most dread statements are: 1. We need to talk This is a tricky one because it could be about anything and everything. 
2. Do you know what day today is? Ladies are keen with dates especially those that mean something. In most cases but not always marking dates is not a priority for men and they do not want to be caught. 3. Do you think I am fat? Physical appearance is important for ladies and this questions could go south really fast if answered wrongly.

4. Do what you want? This statement will mostly torment a man as they try to figure out whether you meant it or not. Lets face it, when l…

Do you believe in Online dating as a Christian? One is never sure when or where they will find their true love. However, one thing is clear, you will find or bump into the  love of your life someplace in this universe. Yes! True love that will sweep you off your feet and your heart will want to learn  How To Be And Remain Blind In Love.

I simply define dating in a relationship as that process of getting to know each other part of a relationship where one can either fall deeply in love or completely out of love.  As I keep sharing on dating and technology I asked members of my Bible Study group their take on online dating. Is online dating a good way to meet a future spouse? There was a lot of strong 'No's and Never after long minutes of opinion giving I rephrased my question and asked. 
Is online christian dating a good option to find a spouse if you don't meet anyone in church or through other 'normal' ways?

I say that the biblical issue here is not how the two o…

How to Be and Remain Blind in Love

Almost everyone has a chance of falling in love once in their life. The young love is often mind blowing that you do not want the moment to end. I have even heard people say, ‘I wish this moment could last forever’.
There is always a chance for a happily ever after but the feeling is never the same as the first moment of falling in love.

Phones and Relationships

Image
Salon gossip is always true (if not most of the times its real life) A few days back  I was at the salon and this beautiful lady walks in all jovial and excited, sit and starts chit chatting with my hairdresser. In the process my hairdresser asks how her home is. We were doing fine until his phone forced us to call in the pastor to come and reconcile the two of us. 
"Mary how many times have I warned you that if you wanted to have peace in your marriage do not touch your husband's phone. What you do not know won't kill you!" exclaimed my hairdresser.
I'm not one to go snooping in my husbands phone but on this particular day he was acted very strangely. I got home from church and wanted to inquire something from my Bible study team leader. Since I didn't have enough airtime on my phone I asked to use his and was very reluctant to give it to me. I got very curious and my gut feeling kept telling me there was something he was hiding from me. 
So when he hands h…

Money And Relationships: My Perspective

Image
When we had Money and Relationships as our topic last month. I realized and learnt that money matters is a very crucial and serious issue in all relationships, courtships and Marriages.

Everyone wants someone who is financially stable, we really don't care what the future holds. I spoke to many of my friends both married, single or dating. one thing is clear all of us will never really see eye to eye on money issues.
Our perspectives are very

Money and Relationships: My Two Cents

Image
During our event on Healthy Vs Unhealthy Relationship forum (#MoneyandRelationships) on 8th September 2016, I had a question as an ice breaker. 
So I asked the audience, "Is money something to consider when getting into a relationship?"

The responses were just intriguing making me realize how uncomfortable people get when it comes to discussing finances.  
Everyone has their intention when getting into a relationship and financial security could be one of them. We established that, money should not be a determining factor of whether to be with someone or not.  However, it is necessary to know the financial position of your significant other to adjust and even make future plans together.
That is just the first level of the conversation which go deeper as your relationship advances. Couples need to discuss; earnings, investments, spending, bills, future progression, liability, assets just to name but a few. For a healthy relationship you both need to be aware of how your hom…
