If you’ve sought God’s forgiveness and the forgiveness of others, then live as if you are forgiven.I’m not saying to be dishonest about your past, but allow a guy to know you for who you are today not as you were.In August 2016, our Confirmation class made a Mini-Pilgrimage to the Basilica Shrine of St. 8 young people were accompanied by our Rector, Nathan Ferrell, and a parishioner Maggie Gardner (who is to be received from the Roman Catholic tradition). We are part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), compete in the Sooner Athletic Conference (SAC), and the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) Division I Level.Your conversations about your past should happen face to face.That takes courage, but in my view it’s better than allowing a guy or yourself to define who you are by who you were. Remember you have limited space to communicate you.In general, Confirmation is open to anyone who is at least 14 years of age.
Recognize that some guys are truly doing their best. Put your attempts at meeting someone online in God’s hands.
Everything you do or don’t do in that space communicates something.
A colleague of mine asked me to review her profile, and the only thing I learned about her was that she liked food.
Be realistic and realize that relationships still take time and work, and there is no magic formula to bypass that process. Feel free to reference current happenings from time to time as these may help you find a connection.
Your goal should be to find as much common ground online as possible.
