Christian dating parent single 20
The grass is always greener on the other side So often we as Christian girls peek into each others lives and assume that somehow our story is harder. Let’s get rid of the “greener grass syndrome” right now. I am going to take off my “mask” and be real with you. I vividly remember a time in my life when I looked at the “older” single girls (girls in their mid-to-late twenties which is MY CURRENT AGE) and was oh so glad that I wasn’t in their shoes.

Both partners should take responsibility for setting limits. 7) Is there too much physical and too little other? Physical touch/intimacy should correspond with commitment. This doesn’t mean anything goes if you are engaged. What is your motivation -- power and control, gratifying your own ego, meeting a selfish need, or genuine affection?
