Hello, I converted to the Orthodox Church over a year ago and was looking for some books or blogs or something about dating. Surprisingly I could only find one short book :

Heaven Help the Single Christian: Thomas Ruthford

Basically I'm a recovering addict and have avoided women for years. Now a fellow recovering addict and I are gonna give it a try. We're both emotionally broken people, in our early 30's, and have no idea what we're doing.

Plus she's secular and doesn't know I'm Christian....soooo I could use all the help I can get!  Thanks !

Don't.

EDIT: That is the short answer. For the longer answer which has a "however", see my forth coming book.

I don't know nothin' about women, but it's probably best to get out in the open soon that you're a practicing Christian. You don't have to awkwardly blurt it out, just slip it into a conversation at some time when it's relevant.

Compelling as this advice is, I feel that I may need reasons to back it up when I tell her dude on net said don't. Women.... so how forth is the coming of yr book?

Man, your book's gonna be freaking enormous with all the subject matter your fans anticipate you covering.

When in doubt, say: "you lack the proper φρόνημα"

So, the other day, I was observing the stringent fasting regimen that you'd have to adopt in order for us to marry, and I got to thinking about why it's called 'Pop Secret' popcorn. I think it's supposed to be like "Top Secret", but a pun.

What are you doing tomorrow night? This afternoon? Where are you walking away to right now?
