What is The Fuss about Having a Blind Date?

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…

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.

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…

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.
