1. How singles date now.
- Dating for singles now is the same as it has always been, but completely different. Confused? Singles now interact with technology in every part of the dating experience. From finding that person they would otherwise never meet online, to texting post date to affirm feelings. In fact, not using technology to date is harder than it is to embrace it and use it.
2. Why singles wait so long to marry.
- Some people will say the single is “too picky.” The mature Christian single hears the stats, sees friends or family members with unhappy marriages. We hear the horror stories about divorce but rarely hear the positive.
3. We are Complete without a spouse.
- No one needs a spouse to be fulfilled. But, what each and everyone of us, married or single, does need is a Savior. We said it before and we’ll say it again, Complete in Christ.
4. How we spend our money.
- Being single does not mean you have an excess of funds. Singles have the same expenses as marrieds: rent or house payment, utilities, car insurance and car payments, food, medical insurance, student loans. For the single parent, there’s the child expense. No different than the married couple with a child.
5. Where we hangout.
- small groups. The local church offers the opportunity to intermingle with the body of Christ.
- with co-workers. Those on the same team working towards a similar goal.
- with others like ourselves: It could be the same hobby or interest. It could be others with the same calling, on the same mission, at the same place.
- social events. Meeting friends of friends, friends of family. Meeting the stranger who enjoys the same type of music. Meeting the stranger who admires the same piece of artwork at an exhibit. Attending sports events.
