The art (and science) of love.

We are raising our glass to you not only finding love, but finding a love so divine that it enables you to become more fully who you are meant to be, and in doing so, you are able to love others so well that they are able to become more fully who they were meant to be.

Dating and Job Hunting

Job search, you remind me of my dating days.  The prospects are bleak.  The call backs are few and far between.  The first dates can be awkward and just flat out painful.  The 2nd dates are as elusive as the night.   Instead of, “I’m looking for someone shorter, or brown-eyed, or less inquisitive,” it’s “We’re looking for bilingual, with _____ certification or more experience.”  You threaten my self-confidence and morale daily.  You try my heart on for size with all of these interviews and then never want to move the relationship forward.  You desire marriage but are unwilling to commit.   You have so many options to choose from you simply cast my resume to the side.  You are paralyzed by a plethora of applications and a lack of decision-making abilities.   You want to be wowed by a candidate but your offerings in return are modest and unimpressive.    You don’t deserve a 1st date, let alone an hour of my time filling out your 8 page application.   You make all the demands and little compromises on your way to determining the right fit.  So here’s the new deal from someone who values psychological health over the benefits that a job/relationship can provide:  if I am not wowed by you, you get none of my time.  The game is a two-way street.  Let’s play.   –ChristianSpeedMatch.com

Love that can be most trusted has little feeling attached to it.  Attraction creates feelings.  Feelings can be deceptive (Jeremiah 17:9) #healthyrelationships

Finding love can be uncomfortable sometimes. Holidays spent alone each year are too. Dont let fear or pride get in the way of living the life you want.

In job-searching, in love, and in life, 1000 “no’s” will eventually lead to a “yes.” #maintainthehope.

Marriage is giving when you’re not receiving and expecting nothing in return. #expectations
