To give a level of moral accountability, yes I do believe that it is wrong to date more than one person at a time.  Christ said to love others as he loves his disciples, and do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  If you have to ask this question, then you should follow what is on your conscience.  Someone you have romantic interest in deserves your sole focus.  You won't learn entirely about that person if they know you are dating more than one person.  In fact, depending on the circumstances it walks the line as being unfaithful.  Even in your pursuit for romantic interest, it should be one person at a time, because it will ultimate be with one person.  Romantic interest is an education and a connection more than it is a buffet....
I do get what your saying.

May the Lord have mercy on their souls, comfort their families, and give them strong guidance in times to come.  May security be provided for those at the school, and may they be brought together and be given endurance and new strength.  In the Name of The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. Amen

Salvation is the gradual process of you being transformed in your relationship with Christ before you enter into the Kingdom.  St. Paul says to work out your salvation with fear and trembling.  In Christ, we become new creatures.  Salvation is ultimately determined at the judgment seat of Christ.  He determines ultimately our eternity.  This is why we intercede on behalf of those who have fallen asleep, and are not yet sealed under the mercy of Christ.  Theosis is obtaining your perfection in the image of God. We are joint heirs in Christ, and as St. Paul says we are saints who judge the world and even angels.  We learn to judge righteously, discern all things. and become living Icons.  One could say...salvation is ensuring your place in Heaven.  Theosis defines your place among the saints of God.

Is it wrong for me to be dating couple of women. I like each one for different reasons. If I could put all three together I'd marry that chick lol. What's your view on dating lots of people.

Depends on what you call dating.

If it is getting to know better still as a friend even if with the awareness that it may develop into a relationship, I think it's ok.

If it is already a relationship, with emotional commitment, physical contact (specially if sex is included....) then yes, it's very wrong.

Yes, very wrong. One can also get killed in a love triangle.



Seems like a fun way to kick the bucket.

More fun than eating GMO corn rats.

And Orthodox imaginative prayer? 

There's a difference between imagination and inspiration.

Oh...

It's imagination when the heretics do it, inspiration when the Orthodox do it. What's so hard about this?

I don't know what I was thinking.  Perhaps I wasn't thinking at all. 

Too much rational thinking, my friend. We need to fix your phronema.

Come to New York and be my godfather.  Wink
