This was long overdue! I have been busy with life, but felt good about posting another video, about dating. Understand that I can only speak for myself and not others.
For the Strength of Youth references:
If you or anyone you know is struggling with coping with same sex attraction and staying in the Church, this youtube channel helped me to understand those in my life who have SSA, I do not, so it is helpful to hear from those who have succeeded in finding harmony:
I mostly talk about my opinions of healthy and safe dating. I referenced Matthew Hussey, a dating and relationship expert, who has SOME great snd some bad ideas… The bad I think is the idea that the “right” guy needs to be super obsessed and passionate, which most 2000s experts agree, women should be super flirty and seductive, blah blah, but they are NOT psychologists, truth is abusers do exactly what these experts say is how abusers start abusive relationships, so be CAREFUL of what I called the “boy band quoters”… On the flip, Matthew Hussey has saved my confidence in realizing that I was often falling HARD for men who were not only cruel, but not even good friends… All women should value themselves enough to move on from a guy who treats you like a fairweather friend whom we says he is obsessed with and wants to marry and have FIVE babies with ASAP. Mentally unhealthy men can change, but YOU are not going to accomplish that, THEY ARE, with therapy, spiritual cleansing, repentance… Oh and Matthew Hussey, all good, HEALTHY marriages state they WERE friends before they realized they LOVED EACH other, he touts how friends NEVER can form a romantic and lasting relationship… Lies, marry your best friend!
