Hi friends! Welcome to Looking for the Middle: The Christian Girl’s Guide To Modern Dating!
We are your hosts, Kristen and Bethany, and we're just two single girls trying to start a conversation on how to date well as Christian women.
Today is a very exciting day because our first episode has officially been released! We’ve made it super easy for you to listen to this episode. You can find us on your smart phone’s podcast app, iTunes, PodBean.com, or under the Listen tab on our website. So be sure to go check it out! In this first episode, we ask ourselves one very important question: “What do we wish was different about Christian dating?”
We had actually asked ourselves this question a few weeks ago when we were sitting around eating ice cream with some of our girl friends. One conversation led to another (as is normal during a girls night in), and we all ended up exchanging stories of dating fails and relationship faux pas. As laughable and/or cringe-worthy as our stories were, there were several themes that started to emerge the more we shared. It was those themes that made Bethany and me realize we couldn’t be the only ones having these experiences. So that’s why we wanted to start a conversation about Christian dating through this podcast.
If you think about it, there are kind of two ends of the spectrum in the Christian dating world. There’s the Tinder side of dating, where you’re hooking up with whoever, whenever, and wherever. And then there’s the “I Kissed Dating Goodbye” side of dating, which is the more conservative of the two. We felt like these types of dating get talked about a lot, but if your dating style is somewhere in between, the conversation sort of dies down. That’s where we come in (and that’s how we got our name)! We are “Looking for the Middle” of these two extremes, in hopes of figuring out how to date well as followers of Jesus.
In future episodes, we’re going to be talking about everything from first date do’s and don’ts to technology etiquette in dating to actively waiting for dating and much more. And be sure to stick around because towards the end of this season, we’re going to be diving into the male brain and figuring out what their perspectives are on dating, and you’re not going to want to miss it!
But for now, we’re going to start off with talking about how we wish dating as a Christian was different. Some of the topics we will discuss in this episode will be:
So, if you’ve ever thought about any of these topics, jump on over to the Listen tab on the website (or to your podcast app) and download the first episode so you can join in on our conversation!
Also, we would love to hear from you about what YOU wish was different about Christian dating. So if you have any ideas, suggestions, or questions, here are a few ways you can get in touch with us:
One last thing - if you’re wanting to know a little bit more about me and Bethany (where we come from, what our hobbies are, our most embarrassing first date stories) go check out our Introductions Episode (Episode 1.0) where you can learn more about who you’re listening to! We promise even if you aren’t laughing with us, you’ll be laughing at us for sure.
I think that’s it for now! Thanks again for stopping by and we’ll see you next week for another episode!
