How to Find Someone to Share Your Life With


Some time ago I wrote about how Internet has changed our lives. As an example, I used an infographic showing how the things have evaluated in searching a person since 1980 till now. Here is what I want to add: Internet has also changed our views on building a relationship. Could you imagine in the ‘80s chatting with your future husband or wife via a dating site? Not really…So here is my view on how the things have change in this sphere.

In those years, as a rule, relationships started accidentally: in the college, at the theatre, at the cinema or in the library. You met someone, you felt the “blink” between the two of you and… you fell in love, but forgot or simply didn’t manage to ask for a phone number. What could you do in this case?

Well, if the situation appeared nowadays, you would search for the person in social networks. It is easy and fast! Ok, but what could you do in the ‘80s? Uh, there was a whole list of possible actions.

First, you could search for the person among your college acquaintances. If the result was not so encouraging, you could continue looking for the person in the same place you have met for the first time. But this process could last for weeks and even months. If the result was negative again, you could continue searching in the closest areas. Of course, the things would have simplified if the situation had happened in a small city. But what could you be waiting for in a town like London, for instance? Unfortunately, there is no concrete answer. Who knows, how many hearts have been broken because of the impossibility of people to find the one they love?

However, the life of those who were lucky to find the X person wasn’t too sweet afterwards. I mean the possibilities to keep in touch. Why? Because there were only 2 ways: phone and letters.

Here is what I would like to say in conclusion: even though someone might see Internet as a bad thing, we have to admit the great advantages it gives us. We can freely speak with our dearest persons who are far away and don’t need to wait for an answer for ages. Here is the favorite sound: “Clink! You’ve got a message!”

So let’s appreciate the advantages of Internet, but not misuse it. In addition, if you are still single, there is an opportunity to build a relationship without leaving your computer! So go ahead and try it.

Day 3: 30 Days of Giving Thanks

Day 3: Today, I am giving thanks for my husband.

30 Days of Giving ThanksGod blessed me with an amazing husband. Truly, the best in the world. When I met my husband, Ashley was 3 years old. I was very active in the College and Career’s class at my church, and I started dating a guy. Things didn’t work out with that guy, but because of him, I met his brother, who just so happened to be {unhappily} engaged to another girl. (How’s that for a story?!) Long story short, it wasn’t long before hubby ended the engagement, and we started dating shortly after that. I know, I know, it sounds like a rebound situation on both parts, but it really wasn’t. 6 months later, we were engaged, and another 4 months after that, we were married.

Gene is kind, loving, generous, PATIENT, (he has to be – just look who he is married to!), dedicated, hard-working, protective, and he loves the Lord with all his heart. What else could a girl ask for?

I am so blessed to have the man I call my husband. He is my whole world. I love you, honey, and I thank the Lord every day for bringing us together.

What are you thankful for today?
