DATING DAYS - WHAT'S GOTTEN LOST IN THE SHUFFLE?

When Mr Handsome and I started dating, we took a lot of walks together. On these walks we talked.

A lot.

We talked about life. About our childhoods and families. We talked about values, dreams, hopes. We shared our individual visions for future ministry. We compared notes on classes and philosophies and observations. Some conversations were trivial, full of laughter. Others were deep and intense - where we learned that we occasionally disagreed on things, but we could still love and appreciate each other.

>>>>>>>>>>(This is us, when we'd been dating about a month, more photos in later posts.)

We belonged to that rare breed of dating college couple who chose not to engage in physical affection until we knew that God intended us to marry - our first kiss came 8 months after we started dating! And we saved the rest for marriage. So conversation was where we put our interactive energy.

As a result, by the time we got to the altar - we knew each other WELL.

These days, we don't talk as much, and I miss it. Of course part of that is because, after 7 years of marriage, there isn't quite as much to explore in each other that we don't already know. We move in synchronization more often than not, instinctively knowing what the other one thinks most of the time. But I still miss that constant give and take of discussion.

What do YOU miss from your dating days with your personal pastor?
