Dating apieces

From waiting three days to call after a date to to expecting your date to pick up the tab for everything, there are many pieces of dating advice that really aren't relevant now.

Lots of people were married before Isaac and Rebekah, but we don’t read about anyone married.

As long as there is safety, sensitivity, and consent for everyone involved, go for it!

Now, I’ve already talked about sex outside the binary, so Note: of course, this isn’t the be-all end-all of dating, this is just some advice from a nonbinary young person who’s lived and is living it!

Rebekah gives the servant’s camels a drink, he gives her a couple heavy bracelets, her family approves, she meets Isaac at a tent — and they’re married.

If you’ve wanted to be married and aren’t, you might read Genesis 24 (as strange as it may seem today) with at least a little bit of curiosity and even longing — it just seems so simple and clean.

It's one thing to ask your close girlfriends what they think about that dude you just started seeing, but it's another thing entirely to have your middle-aged aunt (or worse, a friend who is smug about having what she sees as a "perfect relationship") swoop in and act like they know everything about what you want from your love life.

Good intentions are always appreciated, but trust: if a piece of advice has been said before, she's it before—probably from several people, so think twice before dishing it out.

Our media and societal lexicon is full of stereotypes and misconceptions like: young straight women should want to be married and have children, lesbians settle down quickly or never, young men should want to stay single and promiscuous, and asexual folks are erased.
