Hang around Christian singles long enough and you're sure to encounter a certain emotion. Women, on the other hand, are frustrated because they want men to take initiative, to lead.

Are there overbearing misogynists who seem to believe that Jesus wanted them to control their wives? But there are also plenty of Christian men who have learned by their Christian faith that both men and women have an inherent dignity and that women present unique gifts to the world where men lack.In other words, we’re talking about a wide range of human beings, and it would be silly to group them together into a box labeled “Undatable.”I’ve met several women who had a particularly damaging relationship with a Christian guy and have, therefore, sworn off all Christian guys.But when they told me what exactly transpired, it turned out that for one woman, her boyfriend was manipulative and had used Christianity as a way to control her.People ask me for advice on how to date someone you know you like but that is Christian.This particularly comes from women who want to date my attractive guys friends from softball.
