Welcome back to the blog as we talk about our most recent episode of Looking For The Middle: The Christian Girl’s Guide To Modern Dating.
Today we are continuing our conversation around a survey we sent out a few weeks back. We sent this anonymous survey out to several guys in an attempt to figure out what christian men really think about dating and relationships. We asked them what they look for in a girl they want to date. We asked them what might deter them from asking a girl out. We even asked them what their biggest holdup was when it came to making the first move. There were some tough, personal questions on this survey, but the guys who responded did an incredible job of being honest, helpful, and straightforward in their answers.
We both feel like we’ve gained so much knowledge and perspective after analyzing and talking through these survey results, and we hope as you listen to this two-part episode that you will do the same. We believe this is a conversation worth having, and we think it’s important to try to understand our brothers in Christ as best we can so we can navigate singleness, dating, and relationships well.
So if you haven’t already, go listen to part one of What Christian Men Really Think About Dating, because we set the stage, give some context around the survey, and talk about the first half of the results in that episode. Then once you’re finished with that episode, go ahead and listen to today’s episode (part two).
Just like we did last week, we’ve included a PDF of the survey at the bottom of this page so you can reference it while you’re listening and so you can see all of the questions we asked.
One more thing we would encourage you to do is to use some of the questions from our survey with your guy friends. Ask them how they would answer these questions in an attempt to better understand them and learn about dating and relationships from their perspective. We have both found this survey to be a great tool for starting conversations with our guys friends about these topics, and we have only benefited from these conversations.
We hope you enjoy this episode and that you’ll check back next week as we move onto talking about chemistry in relationships and how important (or not so important) it is!
P.S. We just want to take a second and thank all of the guys who took the time to fill out our survey. We realize most of you might not see this post, but for those of you who do, thank you. Thank you for your honesty. Thank you for your transparency. Thank you for your wisdom and maturity. And thank you for the posture you had as you answered these questions in an effort to help all of the girls who listen to this podcast. Y’all are awesome and we are so grateful for you!
