What I Wish I Knew About Marriage

The Single Season

Singleness has never been my favorite season and I am still trying to figure it out. I am twenty-five years old. I have had my share of bad toads. I have been on and off in relationships. I have pined over past relationships and cried over the loss of men who left me.

What Love Truly Means

For Men: Is She the One?

I've always enjoyed freedom. I've never been comfortable feeling confined or restricted. I have had a lot of priorities in my life that I have devoted my time to, whether that be to work, my studies, my relationship with God, friends, or time with my family. All of these things were important to me, and still are, but I never wanted my life to be compromised by a commitment to a girl. Relationships were never my forte.

Manly Advice on Waiting for 'The One'

A wise man once said: “When you're young everything feels like the end of the world. But it's not; it's just the beginning. You might have to meet a few more jerks, but one day you're gonna meet a boy who treats you the way you deserve to be treated. Like the sun rises and sets with you.”

Singleness ≠ Loneliness

God created Eve at the perfect moment. Adam was likely a bit lonely before meeting his bride, but God wanted enough time to cause his heart to yearn for Mrs. Right. During this period of Adam's singleness, God prepared him to be a stellar husband, with homework to name each animal and to grow acquainted with the Garden of Eden.

Milk and Honey Magazine dishes on the pros and cons of online dating (Tinder, Bumble, etc) to find your dream man. We concluded to give God the reigns of your life and trust HIM to be your Bumble!

☜ Once Upon A Swipe ☞

For a long time I refused to use online dating. I had this hopeless idea of what it would look like when I met the guy I’d fall head over heals for. It would be a classic “meet-cute” where I’d meet him at a coffee shop or a record shop, although I don’t recall that I’ve ever even walked into a record shop.

As A Bride-To-Be ⚤

As a soon-to-be bride, my days are filled with so many magical moments. Moments where I feel the prettiest I’ve ever felt. I have never had such an intense plan for what I will look like on a single day in my entire life: facials, nails, hair, make up, lashes, teeth whitening, tanning, a workout regimen.

Milk and Honey Magazine explains how to live in a long distance relationship with a soldier abroad!

Dating a Soldier Abroad

I've heard the saying "distance makes the heart grow fonder," and I agree; there's something special about being in love with someone who lives thousands of miles away.  Feelings of missing out on breakfast in bed, staying up late binge watching Netflix while eating bags of gummy worms and chips, or even having meaningless arguments because you're spending every waking moment with the person. When you're always together, you have no time to miss each other.
