Celibate dating sites ads dating personal personal single
“I would like to get married…eventually.” What about children?There’s a tendency for some conservative Christian circles (and some conservative Christian guys, like Burkhardt’s Boy Number 3), to view women as “mere” baby-making machines.The opposing viewpoint is that women have so much else to contribute, so why should they take on the incredible burden of bearing children? For one, it really does objectify the woman as a means to the object of children.But it also puts the man in the position of possessing that means.For one, the experience of browsing a dating site is rather like shopping Amazon.Apply some filters, browse the items by pictures and descriptions that may or may not be representative, and pick some that look interesting.
It’s not at all clear that this is an argument against having children. The point of marriage, however, certainly is to provide a woman with a devoted husband for her and father for her children.As a 24-year-old, single, somewhat (okay, very) geeky, Christian man, I’ve had many conversations with female acquaintances about worldviews and life goals.Knowing that I have a tendency to get attached somewhat quickly, I try my best to understand a young lady’s viewpoints on several things before allowing myself to be romantically interested in her.Other issues—is she okay with having guns in the house?Does she want to send the kids to public school, or is she open to homeschooling?
