Enjoy being single! Do whatever you want, no mother-in-laws, no tiring children, nobody telling you what to do and to drink less  8). Sounds very, very promising to me. I feel a call to monastic life now that it is too late  ;)

Après le plaisir vient la peine, après la peine, la vertu. ;)

After pleasure comes pain, after pain, virtue.

Sounds like he'd like to just stop at the pleasure part... 
Everything is meaningless under the sun.
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.

Nice that it turned out just fine to you, but I guess I would have a very hard time coping with some points, plus if it's incredibly hard for someone trying to live a Christian life to remain chaste, let alone someone not trying to. Not to mention traditional Orthodox teaching.

"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

Yeah, we're talking about a multilingual scholar and you want to pair her with a monosyllabic truck nuts enthusiast?

Thank you for saying that more rudely than i was trying.....


If she comes to the US, she needs to go to seminary etc.....ie find a scholar or a future priest.....

New York it is, then!

I need to make a longer visit than the 1st time in st. Vladimir's then ;)

DO IT
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

thank you so much Mor ephrem you are a hero!

Even though I'm no longer Catholic I still feel like I'm in "canonically separated with the bond remaining limbo"... monks do not pay child support, and another marriage with the potential for more kids seems unfair to the first 3. Not to mention I might fail just as hard the second time.

Unfortunately, Polish Orthodox women seem to be more ambitious. But there is a chance. Under the condition you give me a camel without mahr.

Camels are short here, can we exchange that for a dozen of capybaras? They're very mild animals and you seem athletic, I'm sure you can mount on them.

There should be a project "Polish-Indian" friendship. Or instead of a popular tv show here "Rolnik szuka żony" ("Farmer is looking for a wife"; there has been at least one Orthodox participant there), "Mor szuka żony" ("Mor is looking for a wife").
Also, st. Vladimir should prepare some scholarchips for Polish Orthodox CHBM (Chcę być matuszką - I want to be a priest wife).

I LOVE capybaras, so we have a deal.
BTW, I'm not so atheletic, at least last 2 years, poor condition except for walking (even many) kilometres...

I always found Venezuela to have the most gorgeous women worldwide, but Slavs are quite as beautiful, plus nicer and nowadays probably less Communist.

Be honest: would there even be participants other than me?  :P
I'm sure there would be Mor.

I already said "other than me".  :P
Who needs Mor than Mor?

Ladies that would participate in the show, as the winner can be only one. Can you imagine those tears of the loosers? They would be worse than after today's match of Poland.

Like I said, I would pay to watch this show...
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

thank you so much Mor ephrem you are a hero!

May all of you receive the partner you need...not the partner you want.

Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.

Amen.

And my deacon friend from another city hasn't found anybody for me to be a partner at the wedding of my friend... :(

Jimmy the altar server wasn't in church this morning, so I couldn't ask him out.

Sigh. I'll wait 'til next time.

Good luck, and whatever happens good on you for putting yourself out there :)

There's a nice girl in college. I've known her for years, but started seeing her with other eyes very recently. :angel: I'll keep trying to notice the body language and maybe ask her out. Let's hope she's that nice.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.
