Hah, I have figured it out. We should attend a Coptic young professionals convention.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tx__ehWzHoQ

Eight minutes from the documentary "Out of Egypt" by Andrew Ishak. The documentary is about the culture of Coptic Orthodox Christians living in the United States.

See the end of the clip.

Well, I was not entirely serious, but I did read somewhere that sex has more to do with a person's happiness than money, and some people travel to attend the right college.

I'm drinkig a Portugal wine without rasing my hand ;p

For sure not this year. Relationship - it would be very nice if I managed (finally!). But marriage definitely not this year. I'm to young, not enough experienced in relationships to create a good marriage.

I tend to think the same but then again I don't think any experience about pre-marital relationship can guarantee a good marriage. Everything's going to fall apart at some point anyway because we're humans. Not that it has to lead to divorce though but you might end up feeling miserable despite having seemingly stable marriage.

Agree on this point, pre-marital relationships probably help both parts to understand a difficult situation when they occur, but relationships never cure problems from arising in the first case.

I agree with both of you, however, I think the particular relationship has to last some time to be transformed into a good marriage. That's the first thing. The second one, is just a person haven't had any boyfriend/girlfriend, she/he cannot so rapidly get into marriage, such person has to get know, how to functionate being in a relationship.

I just know that I did not have as much headache when I was single. As for a marriage nope at least for the next couple or so yars...There are few testd that need to be overcome...to see how things work out and how stable the foundatuon is. Without a spiritual foundation, things are more likely to shatter to pieces. I promised myself not to settle for someone who just isn't right just because the right one is not to be seen. I know a romantic...right. As I mentionedin the other topic, there are two girls that stand out among others with whom things are getting qite serious. Shall see how things turn out...

I think it would be nice to find love, but I am a young whipper-snapper that needs to get his own stuff in line before thinking about all that stuff.

Three words: Orthodox youth festivals. 

These are fantastic not just for finding a spouse, but also for meeting other Orthodox friends.

Not true in every case. In Poland I feel that I know almost everybody (and for some reasons, I'm also known to quite a lot of Polish Orthodox), and what's more, people a little older than me (even 2 years older - I'll be 23 in October) are married or are in a serious relationship. And I'm rather not interested in men younger than me.

but also for meeting other Orthodox friends.
That's true

There are such things as Orthodox youth festivals? Sounds fairly scary. A festival full of Hyperdox Hermans.

You can put into this "box" various meetings and events organised specially for Orthodox youth.

Not really. Hyperdox Hermans do not attend such things, for them they could be too "outrageous". They prefer strict pilgrimages to some monasteries, especially to Athos (for men, to not be tempted)

And I'm rather not interested in men younger than me.

Interesting how the demographics are different in other countries.  From my experience with the OYF (in UK), their are many men and women around 30.  They even changed recommended age limit to 35, which of course isn't really "youth" anymore. 

I have found that even if people don't meet someone at these festivals, they at least get a group of friends who might be able to help them meet someone later.  Many people court each other over a period of years.

I have seen some Hyperdox Hermans there, but they are indeed rare.  In fact, I had some Hyperdox tendencies when I went to my first festival, and the experience really helped me get out of it.
