Neither of those situations are good for our sanity.

Be clear and kind in the break-up process, but for the love of God, don’t put all the blame on Him.

God is not some sort of cushion you can use to soften the blow of a break-up.

Asking a girl out and going on a date should be fun and exciting. You’re not co-signing on a mortgage, you’re just getting dinner.

Want to know a secret that will make all dates and future relationships better? She Says: How can you know if someone is marriage material without spending any time with him?

He Says: Women will be absolutely shocked if you ask them out on a date – to their face – and use the word ‘date.’ Women like men who are confident in person, not behind a keyboard.

If you’re nervous, that’s okay (she’ll think it’s cute).

We’ve all been told to guard our hearts – so does that mean we can’t even interact with the opposite sex? If you make it to the elusive dating phase, be aware of your emotions and planning for the future.

Making her laugh and being there for her when she cries is good, but don’t think for a second you’re the only one for that job.

Dating is an awesome, terrible, challenging, great, heartbreaking institution. It can leave you floating on air or crashing back to earth.

The Situation: Things seem to be going pretty well – and then all of a sudden it ends with one line: “It’s not you, it’s God.” Sometimes, well-intentioned Catholics will use God to get out of a relationship they don’t want to be in anymore. Those are both decisions that we made for ourselves, but they sound way better if God told us to do it.

If you’re not having sex with your girlfriend but you are watching porn, that isn’t chastity. She Says: We’re not just bodies – we’re bodies, hearts, minds, and souls.
